SonntagsZeitung chooses its new best hotels

On 29th May, the renowned SonntagsZeitung once again chose the best 15 family hotels in Switzerland. The Swiss Family Hotel Alphubel Saas-Fee came in at 14th place in the overall rankings. The only hotels above us have a higher star-rating, which means we are once more the best 3-star family holiday hotel in the Canton of Valais!

Karl Wild is the author of these hotel ratings. All of the hotels mentioned were visited. In the interest of fairness, only hotels with at least 12 bedrooms and an in-house restaurant are considered.  The criteria are: the evaluation of the relevant hotel and restaurant guides, quality controls issued by leading hotel associations, investment activity, 

hospitality, charisma and innovativeness of the hotelier, character and originality of the establishment, location, leisure activities, price-performance ration, category-specific offers and a subjective overall impression. Click here to view the rating >>>

Best family holiday hotel in the Valais

The broadly based assessment resulted from a harmonious interaction between the editorially-focussed viewpoint of specialised journalists, the professional assessments of experience industry insiders and the collected impressions of numerous anonymous test visits - three areas, in which the hosts of the online platform “Connoisseur Circle” have years worth of experience. For the selection of the “222 best hotels in Switzerland”, specific test parameters such as the location, the “look and feel”, room quality, services, food and beverage management, price/service, leisure facilities and reception were collated from both of the industry-leading media outlets, Connoisseur Circle and Hubertus von Hohenlohes Very Special Hotels, with the results amalgamated into one overall ranking.We are thrilled to be distinguished as the best family holiday hotel in the Canton of Valais, being ranked at 12th place in the overall table (rising from 14th place the year before).

Children under 9 ski for free

This isn’t just an exciting prospect for adults and children - it’s good news for your wallet too! Children up to the age of 9 can now ski free of charge in the Saas-Fee Free Republic of Holidays!


There is just one condition: one parent receives a 6-day ski pass with the Citizens’ Pass, but let’s be honest - a ski holiday with the kids for less than a week is hardly a ski holiday, is it!? We think that in order to enjoy the best prepared and snowiest 150km of ski slopes, you need to have a bit more time to play with...
