We stayed here at the end of our Haute Route, so to be honest, any room would have felt like a palace at that stage! Check in was quick and there was a toblerone left on each pillow in the room. The room was OK, it had a view of the side yard but large french doors to let the... More

I stayed at this hotel over Christmas 2013. It was located on a main street near shops and restaurants. The room served it's purpose, and was clean and comfortable. We had a great view of the mountains and town out our window. The building was classic for Switzerland. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel. We ate there one... More

Here's the scoop on this little gem: It isn't the best hotel in Zermatt, and might be on the lower end for quality, but for the price you pay, it is perfect. You are never in your room anyway. I am 54 years old. If you are 65+ you probably should find another spot. Free breakfast, Boom. The rooms are... More

Hotel Helvetia is situated 5 min walk from the train station. This place really needs a lot of updating, we stayed at the top floor and had no wifi, and our friends a floor below also had no wifi which is too bad since they advertise wifi. Everything is really dark and a bit dingy, furniture don't function right and... More

This hotel has a perfect location right on the main street of Zermatt, Bahnhofstrasse. We walked from the train station with our luggage and skiis in 7 minutes. It takes the same time to walk to Gornergrat Bahn in the morning, and about 4 or 5 minutes to the bus stop behind the church to to the other lifts. Check-in... More

The staff were so friendly throughout my stay, welcoming and smiley. The room also small was clean and comfy. Breakfast was good. It is in a fantastic location right on the main street. Would recommend.

Hotel Helvetia is situated in the heart of Zermatt. Great location. 5 min walk from the train staion, 2 min walk to the museum and the Church. All the lift are around so they can take you to the top, to the magnificent views. But that is just about it..... Cheaper than most hotels, but still whoever owns it, needs... More

I stayed during the summer months. Overall: An affordable 'crash pad' after hours of hiking/exploring in a very pricey/touristy area. Don't expect an amazing view but do expect a clean room, good breakfast, and convenient location in the heart of Zermatt. Pros: 1) The lady who serves breakfast was amazing; she also performs other job roles at the hotel/restaurant too.... More

At 100 CHF for a night including breakfast you won't find a better deal on central Zermatt (summer rate). the hotel is just 10 minutes walk from the station right on the main street were all shops and restaurants are. it is a short walking distance to all ski lifts as well. the breakfast is not a massive buffet but...

This little hotel is located just opposite of the Brown Cow pub, about 10 mins walk from the station. Its a great place for food and drinks, but if you're carrying all your ski gear, I would recommend staying a bit closer to the ski lifts (closest is gornergrat, which is near main station=10 mins). the breakfast buffet is OK,...
