I substantiate all the previous positive reviews of this hotel. It is a real find but do not confuse it with the unreviewed CHALET Alphubel which is also in Saas Fee. The food at HOTEL Alphubel is exceptional and at low cost. Although the included breakfast is a buffet, continental style, the variety and quality of food available is superb. I highly recommend that the half board be selected for the evening meal. The food is exceptional and at a price of about 50% of what you will pay in other establishments in Saas Fee. We did not travel with children. Ours are at university but the children in the hotel were never a problem during our one week stay because they were always provided for and entertained. It was such a delight to see such happy, well behaved children. We found all the staff and guests very friendly despite our total inability to speak Swiss German. They all struggled to speak English effectively. A staff member at the desk also spoke French which was useful for us.
I am sure you will enjoy your stay as much as we did.
Don't let the location deter you. It provides a lovely view of the town and the majestic scenery, it is 5 minutes walk to the town center and ten minutes to the lifts. However, the free private electric taxi service takes you to and from the lifts as well as collects and delivers you and your luggage from and to your car in the parking area at the end of your stay. Luggage is brought up to your room on arrival and collected from your room when you leave. In addition there is frequent free public transportation throughout the town. The nearest stop for this public service is the Allalin hotel, 2 minutes walk from the Alphubel Hotel.
(The skiing and scenery were also fabulous.)
