Last year I wrote a review about this hotel and said that we'd go back. Well, we have just come back from a week at the Petit Palais and once again we had a great week. The staff in the dining room were different but just as friendly and attentive to our (vegetarian) needs. We even got a couple of extra eggs at breakfast when we asked nicely! Reception was often left unattended, but I was happy to get my own key off the hook....although anyone could have done the same....... The room was not quite as good as last year but when we reported a couple of problems they were dealt with swiftly. I do, however, think that the rooms could do with a lick of paint to freshen them up.
Again, the position of this hotel alone makes it worth staying in. For those who don't ski there is a great walking trail straight out of the front door which climbs gently to the right and has stunning views of the Cervino (Matterhorn). For those who do ski, the proximity to the cable car/gondola station must outweigh any reservations/negative feelings about the hotel.
I you are thinking of going but are put off by reviews from previous years - don't be. It's worth every penny (of the already low price) that you pay.
