This hotel is simply a wonderful place to stay in Saas-Fee. It's in a perfect location, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the village center but accessible to it as well. A lovely garden provided a place to relax after a day of hiking, while the cozy room had a balcony with an unparalleled view of the mountains and glaciers. Everything is kept in immaculate order. The themed evening meals were a real surprise and truly made our stay something special. This was all due to the superb and friendly direction of the owners, who truly care for their guests. For a memorable experience at a reasonable cost, the Hotel Etoile is just perfect.

Stayed: July 2018

The service in the hotel was outstanding, warm and friendly. The family and staff worked hard but made you feel special. It is not a sophisticated place but very comfortable and our view from the room was wonderful. Every night there is a theme for diner and this was, somehow, delightful although unexpected. We felt that the hotel was pleased to have our company and they made every effort to give us an excellent week. Because the staff were so friendly it infected the guest too, who were all kind and thoughtful to each other too.

Had an amazing time! Lovely and passionate staff. Everyone went the extra mile to make our stay extra special. The theme nights added a fun, warm and friendly atmosphere, making it a home away from home. I would strongly recommend to anyone coming to Saas-Fee!

Years ago we found Hotel Etoile through the book "Walking Easy in the Swiss Alps" and have returned many times because it is such a special experience and you are surrounded by phenomenal views and hiking.

Rolf leads hikes throughout the summer, and is familiar with all the trails of the area and so is able to recommend hikes appropriate to every level hiker. He and Daniela are very active owners of the hotel, and are available from early breakfast service through the 5-course gourmet dinners.

They have spent much time and energy in devising a plan to make your stay here a memorable experience, and we suggest you plan to arrive on a Saturday and stay for an entire week, as the activities are planned with something special each day. Dinners have themes, and the decor and table service is changed daily to match the theme. It is a festive, fun place for all!

Many rooms have the spectacular glacier view, but there is no bad room in the place, and there is beauty in every direction. The price includes the excellent half-board dinners as well as a pass for the local buses and lifts. As this can be quite expensive in Switzerland, this pass makes the hotel an excellent hiking base.

Saas Fee and Hotel Etoile should be on your Switzerland travel itinerary!

Pure definition of one can expect from Swiss hospitality. Wonderful experience at all levels. Although the place is a 3 stars hotel, all guests received the highest standard and personalized services. It's a gem and the owners have the know-how to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Thanks to the Bumann family and staff!
