    Very nice hotel, perfectly located just next to main ski lifts. Very clean and renovated rooms, we had plenty of space for our family of three. The hotel staff is very polite and helpful. Great service. We had an excellent stay and if ever returning back to Grimentz we will book there without hesitation.

    Friendly helpful staff, good breakfasts, amazing evening meals - really good restaurant. The location opposite the main ski lift can't be beaten -perfect for skiers,. Also skis are kept in a ski room next to the lift, really good system lovely warm ski boots in the morning and warm walking boots when returning the skies and boots in the evening - luxury! The bedroom was petite but the price of the hotel was such amazingly good value so room size fine for the price and I certainly am not complaining! Warm bedroom, warm en suite with a lovely shower with great pressure and plenty of hot water. Seating area downstairs also a bar and great apres ski area. All in all a great value hotel, with lots a great extras. Will defo return in the future. Thank you Alpina for a lovely stay.

    breakfast was a bit simple... OK, but nothing to be excited about! However, it did the job... feed us before going skiing. :)

    Pillows... my whole family loved the pillows! It was also VERY clean... sheets, floors, hallways, all fresh smelling and spotless.

    As many others said, parking entrance and parking slots are very narrow, though all sedan cars should fit. No water heater in the room to make tea or coffee, though there is a hair dryer. The room was set to a very high temperature on our arrival : you should make sure to set it down to 1 or 2 to be able to sleep correctly.

    Very good breakfast with fresh bread, croissant and pain au chocolat. Staff was very friendly and we were allowed to leave the car in front to discharge the luggsges before parking it in the underground parking. Room was very nice and recently renovated. And even though it was facing the street and the lift, there was not much noise. And the view, even if not the best, was not bad, and the balcony was nice. It is very close from the lift (across the street) and as the ski room was being renovated, we were able to use the ski resort ski room which was very nice.

    The red curtains really need to go. Too much like a brothel when the sun comes streaming in. The room is basic and the beds comfortable enough. Too pricey even though it was high season.

    The location across from the gondola was excellent. It was nice to ski down at the end of the day and be able to go to the room to change without fussing. Especially good for tired feet.

    Some rooms on the north side look out directly onto the concrete wall of new the telecabine building across the road. Very convenient but not the best view. The rooms on the South side however must have fantastic views.

    The hotel is quite dated but it has had a very good makeover with very nice on suite bathrooms etc. The room was comfortable and very clean. The location of the hotel couldn't be better and the free use of the manned ski room across the road at the telecabine building is a fantastic bonus. The best thing about this hotel though was the friendliness and excellent service from all the staff , both in the restaurant and at reception. They really made you feel welcome.

    Bed possibly a bit soft for us; room quite warm (February) - but easy to open window, fine with it open all night. Would have preferred a room the other side for the valley views (which we had from dining room). Downside of hotel's perfect location is seeing lift station out of window! Although we also had some view of ski piste & attractive upper side of village.

    We were really happy here and were made to feel very welcome. Brilliant powerful shower, adequate room, great food in restaurant - both for eve meals (luxurious and good value including variety of local specialities) and breakfast (loved the interesting fruit salad). Perfect location! Next to ski hire shop and lift station and very near to Coop for chocolates! Could ski right down, just had to cross road to hotel (the closest we've ever been to ski-in-ski-out!). Stunning views across valley at breakfast. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful, lovely atmosphere. No problems with noise at all even though we had the window open all the time and looked out on the lift station side: hard to believe how it could be so quiet!!!

    The interior decoration definitely needs to be upgraded. The carpeting throughout the hotel leaves much to be desired. The furniture in the restaurant + the curtains dates back to probably the 70s or 80s. Given the cost of the hotel per night more effort should be put into the presentation.
