Do not miss the Therme Vals when visiting central Switzerland. Based upon reviews we read on this website, we decided not to choose for the Therme Hotel, but the Alpina. Since prices in Vals are high anyway, we decided to go for the most expensive renovated rooms, designed by Architekt Gion A. Caminada which are CHF 110 per person per night (!).
When entering the room, we were disappointed by the very low ceiling and the unbelievable cheap floor covering. The rest of the interior was also quite cheap and the room looked out on a terrace on which the neighbours were having fun bbqing. Service was ok but not too friendly.
Breakfast and diner were really delicious, but we were unpleasantly surprised to learn that if you take halfboard, you are not supposed to dine on the lovely terrace in front of the hotel (but in the restaurant/breakfast room upstairs).
The next time we will try the Therme Hotel.
