“Nothing but Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2013

Incredible views, great and friendly service and picturesque setting, my stay at Chalet Martin has been one of the best Swiss weekends I have had yet. I would highly recommend Chalet Martin for anyone who is looking for a weekend outdoors a little off the beaten path, but still easy to get to.

Initially contacted them via e-mail and they responded very quickly with useful information about everything from how to get there to staying. I love the fact that they are not so strict about their check-in and check-out timings. Very kind managers, friendly and love to talk, have fun, and help with how to enjoy your stay. Outstanding views of the mountains and the valley. All you could hear in the morning is the birds singing. Fully equipped kitchen, enough dishes and cookers, many oven and lots of cooking ingredients you could use for your cooking basically for free. This place is like encyclopedia, once you are there, you have access to fast internet (if no laptop or smartphone, no worries, they have fast desktop computers), anything you wish for. They have everything, skis, snowboards, cycles and hiking stuff for very very cheap price. I definitely recommend this to cyclists, hikers, skiers and those who would like to see incredible countryside of Switzerland. Perfect place for group as well as couples, you will love staying there. Thank you guys, Rafal

As an American living in Geneva, I've come to expect high prices and less-than-stellar service in Swiss hotels and restaurants. This charming chalet/hostel is just the opposite! The common areas are comfortable and inviting, the staff is welcoming and friendly, and there is plenty of outdoor beauty to enjoy year-round. Gemma and Merlin further demonstrated their superior level of service when I realized, after leaving the hostel, that I'd left my jewelry in the room. I called and they sent it to me the next day! Can't thank you two enough...

Gemma and Merlin are so welcoming and great fun. The hostel is full of atmosphere and totally relaxing after a hard days skiing. It is very clean, comfortable and seems to absorb everyone with its many small public rooms so that it never felt crowded. The oldest of our party was me at 65 and I had a ball! We can't wait to go back. Thank you Chalet Martin!

This chalet had a pool table and movie room. The owners were super friendly and the hostel was clean. The instructions to get to the hostel were clear and easy to follow the signs up to the hostel. The furniture and set up of the chalet had a very warm feeling.
