We stayed here for one night on our way to other accommodation, because it was cheap (ish). Pros: It was centrally located. It was clean and comfortable enough (for one night). The balcony gave access to a nice view and fresh air. The breakfast was a good continental spread! It was sort of cheap. Cons: The room was tiny and... More

Tiny room but everything you need. Very clean. Owner is a delight. Great breakfast included. Go up stairs above restaurant to find instructions to room. They will see you at breakfast. Easy walk from train station which was a fabulous trip. Chalets and skiers every where. The church bells ring at 7:55 for five minutes; nice but wasn't sure what... More

This isn't a smart or luxury hotel, but it is very good value in this expensive town. Rooms overlooking the street likely to be noisy. Didn't eat in the restaurant ,(plenty of options nearby), but breakfast OK. Having just hiked from Chamonix via huts etc it provided all we needed in terms of comfort. I'd stay again.

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

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
