Valais Hotels

Valais hotels are in a constant state of flux, and every year at least one old hotel is given a makeover. The most appealing hotels in Valais seem to be old.

Most of those built after about 1960 popped up in generic, concrete-slab, balconied rows to accommodate the 1960s ski boom. They are solid enough

but, for the most part, anonymous, depending on the personality of their owners.

Valais is home to some of Switzerland's most famous resorts, and prices vary widely between top-level lodgings and simple auberges (inns) in humbler towns. Remember that many resorts shut down during the lulls in May and from November to mid-December.
