Hôtel Le Gai Soleil, Samoens
Charming, comfy, and nice
Samoens is so beautiful and being centrally located but serene and inviting made this place an ideal spot to stay. The staff are friendly and everything is nice and clean.

Tiny bath. Otherwise nice, but has the feel of being somewhere for several people to sleep, rather than a room to enjoy. Decent sized balconies though. And jacuzzi was fun. Friendly hosts.

Wanted to stay in Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval, and this hotel came up in the search. It's in the next town down the hill. A cute town, probably better for most tourists. Ate outside the hotel, many places available.
