Welcome to Chalet Hotel Ambassador!
The Ambassador has established itself as a firm favourite amongst our skiers, with its unbeatable mix of the absolute prime location in the whole resort, comfortable bedrooms and public areas, and our popular Chalet Hotel catering and service. Our friendly and professional team of staff look forward to welcoming you to Saas Fee and to the Ambassador this winter.
'Location, location, location!'
The Ambassasor enjoys an absolutely prime location, just across the traffic-free street from the foot of the main slopes. This means you can ski back virtually to the door in normal conditions, and it is equally easy to access the main high-speed lifts at the start of the day, with the three key main lifts all within approximately 3 minutes' walk. From the après ski point of view, the main resort high street starts just across the bridge a minute’s walk away, with the inviting bars, cafés and shops of the delightful traffic-free village centre all conveniently close at hand. Our partner ski-hire shop is also just a couple of minutes' stroll from the hotel.
Ski Area Access
The Ambassador could not be better placed for access to all parts of Saas Fee's superb ski area. The Spielboden and Plattjen gondolas are only approximately 2 minutes walk away (150m), and the Alpin Express to access the Felskinn area approximately 3 minutes walk (300m). Alternatively, just 270m away across the base area of the slopes is the short drag-lift which connects to the second Felskinn cable-car, which goes in one single stage straight up to 3,000m. Runs from all sides bring you back home to just across the street from the Ambassador itself. Beginners or families with children also have the beginners' area just 3 minutes' walk away across the bridge, with its three drag-lifts providing a choice of blue runs in an ideal area for learning.
Comfortable Hotel Facilities
Apart from its ideal location, the Ambassador has still more to recommend it, with the heated indoor swimming-pool, sauna and whirlpool spa-bath providing the perfect way to relax tired skiing muscles after a long day on the slopes. The comfortable lounge welcomes you to afternoon tea on your return from skiing, and together with the bar, also provides for a relaxing drink before or after dinner. The spacious bedrooms all have twin beds and a single sofa-bed (1.8m long) suitable for a child under 12. Many bedrooms will also take a fourth folding bed if required. All are attractively furnished in traditional style, with en suite bathrooms, a TV and mini-fridge, and a balcony or terrace to enjoy the sunshine and the spectacular views.
Traffic-free Saas Fee
Saas Fee's traffic-free village centre is a major bonus, enabling you to enjoy the charm of the resort completely free of the noise, congestion and pollution of normal traffic, and only the unique 'elektro-taxis' (a little like glorified milk-floats!) hum quietly around the village streets. Coaches are also clearly not allowed into the centre, so on your arrival from the airport, you will be met off the coach by our resort team at the main entrance to the village. From here it is a gentle ten-minute walk along the picturesque main street to the Ambassador, enabling our team to point out useful village amenities and favourite après ski venues en route, whilst all your luggage is transported for you directly to the Ambassador's welcoming reception.
