We just landed for a two night stay earlier this month. We had booked a family room for our family of four. We did walk from the train station with large suitcases which had wheels. We didn't mind at all and enjoyed walking through the lovely village of Zermatt taking in the shops and sights. When arriving at the hotel,... More

We did not realise the train to Zermatt terminated at Brig, which was our primary base of stay and introduction to Switzerland. We had just come off the train from Milan, and being immersed in Italian kept mumbling ‘prego’ and ‘graci’; instead of ‘bitte’ and ‘danke’. The train ride to Zermatt was pleasant, time and season of the day makes... More

I stayed 3 nights in Alpenrose in Oct. The hotel is a bit hard to find for me but the people here are very helpful to have directed me there. By foot from the main train station it takes about 20 mins if you have a few pieces of luggages. Hence, suggest to phone the hotel to provide electric van... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Alpenrose. We were lucky because we made our reservations somewhat last minute and there were 2 rooms available for our family for a reasonable price. For us, the location was perfect. We enjoyed being close to the gondolas up the mountain. The view of the Matterhorn was magical and the hotel staff... More

We loved this clean family run boutique hotel and Zermatt was the highlight if our 12 days Swiss vacation. You will get whatever they promise you during reservation. Good clean... More

We recently spent a week of ski vacation at the Hotel Alpenrose in Zermatt. It was a great place for our family. The hotel staff is very friendly and accomodating, from pickup and dropoff at the train station, to helping with lost luggage, suggestions for activities and local information, and dining. We are a family of 4 (two teenagers, ages... More

Depending on the device you use to access the internet, you don't have to redo the access code every time. That's something we cannot change unfortunately. Otherwise our system is very reliable for a free WiFi hotspot. Sorry I wasn't too glad to come down at night more than one time because of forgotten keycards. Most guests don't leave their... More

A very nice family run hotel (in the same family since three generations). Prefect location for skiers, clean. Our room had a completely renovated bathroom. Very reasonable price for Zermatt. They come and pick you up at the train station with a little electric car.

Hotel is located at a quieter end of the main road in Zermatt which allows for unobstructed views of the Matterhorn. Balcony room was above restaurant area which was fine but could imagine that might infringe on privacy during busier time of year. Clean, modern room and great breakfast. My husband and I would stay here again.
