Hotel Les Chamois
Ranked #12 of 23 Hotels in Verbier
Reviewed 26 July 2013

My wife and I have just spent a night at les Chamois, which is not a lot to make a detailed review, but what we found was friendly staff, a great location and a clean, comfortable room at the top of the hotel. We will certainly be back - free wi-fi is a bonus, as was seeing a picture of the owners as children with legend Eddy Merckx on the wall - if it was good enough for the Cannibal, it is good enough for me.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the valley make waking up on a sunny day an absoloute joy

Three seasoned skiers shared a triple room and booked the Hotel Chamois based on Trip Advisor reviews at the last minute. The hotel is very convenient, close to the Medran lifts and near ski rental shops, restaurants and bars.
Our room was comfortable, warm (a little too warm as times) but this was appreciated as it was -12 in the resort. The decoration a little faded but no real issues. Bathroom clean and everything worked perfectly.
The staff on the front desk were excellent: friendly, helpful and proactive. We had an email in advance welcoming us and finding out what time we expected to arrive. We had a late flight booked on a Sunday and would have liked to have access to a shower after a morning’s skiing and unfortunately this wasn’t possible. A few other hotels we have stayed at have managed to sort that out for us, but the hotel was busy.
Breakfast was good and comprised: bread, cheese, cereal, fresh coffee, fruit, yoghurt and a boiled egg. Everything was fresh and the person refilling the buffet was attentive so no shortages. No croissants or pastries. We didn’t eat at the hotel in the evening, but the restaurant looked fine and was busy at the weekend.
All in all, I would recommend the Chamois if you are after a comfortable mid-priced hotel that is very convenient. It isn’t luxury, but is friendly, clean and well-run.

Dear Client,

Thank you for your comments and are delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay.
Normally, if you ask, it's possible to take a shower after your morning skiing. But, I'll check that with my receptionist and I am sorry for the inconvenience.

Hoping to see you again, we send you our best regards.

I stayed at Les Chamois most winter holidays throughout my childhood - and we loved it! This also means that my review is VERY dated :-), I have no idea about the current conditions of the rooms and the service. I see that it is still run by the same family and this vouches for quality.

So, we enjoyed it back then, friendly, welcoming to families and very swiss. And in those days the food (we were on half board) was perfect. Used to have balconies facing the valley, sunny and with great views. You may want to check that no buildings have since been erected in front of the hotel to disturb this.

The location (which has not changed) is still quite good and central - a short walk uphill from the central square (Place Centrale) and relatively close to Medran. Medran is the main lift taking you to the top of Les Attelas from where you have acces to most of the ski area including the most challenging parts. You can walk to Medran, it is a bit uphill, if you are in good form you will hardly notice . Otherwise Verbier runs a frequent free bus service. There is no ski in/ski out as the hotel is located in town - but if you know the backroads through the gardens you can ski to points quite close to the hotel.

Tip: The Savoleyres section of the ski area is smaller, peaceful (i.e. less crowded) and easier for children and less confident skiiers. Take the bus there from the nearest stop, Place Centrale or Medran.

Very friendly family run hotel which is very close to main gondola and good value for money co paired to other Verbier hotels. The only complaint was that the only pillow in the room was like a rock!
The hotel was very clean and reception staff very friendly the ski & boot room was a good space.
Free WiFi was a bonus as was the recharging facility in the room.
Just a shame about that pillow.

A good value hotel relative to central Verbier. Location is excellent, close to shops, bars, restaurants and main Medran lift. If you are looking for a decent hotel but at the lower price range for Verbier this one is good. We had an en-suite room but I believe some share bathrooms so check when booking. Very friendly staff too!

Great hotel at the price, I stayed there once and will return. Restaurant has probably the cheapest prix fixe 4 course dinner in Verbier. Les Chamois is in a super location, has a friendly staff. They even let me use the office computer to check a flight! Since I was leaving at 6 am, the hotel prepared a breakfast for me the night before to take with me. Rooms are clean and comfortable.

Not sure what bar the reviewer from San Francisco (and whatever bar that is, I think its utterly unfair) was using to declare this place a dump, but this is a hotel that lives up to what it is supposed to be: a three star hotel, smack in the middle of town, very close to the cable car. Throw in a friendly staff and rooms that are way beyond decent and clean and you get a pleasant, albeit not luxurious, stay. If you've been to the Lodge in Utah, I think that would be a fair comparison.
