We found this excellent family owned Hotel, about 23 years ago. Since then we have had 11 excellent holidays there. It is only a few minutes walk from Zermatt Railway Station. It is situated beside the River, next to the old part of Zermatt village, and only a five minute walk from the main tourist centre. There are excellent views... More

We went as a family of four and were given a beautiful suite of two modern rooms and a very large bathroom with a wonderful view of the Matterhorn. This would have been the best hotel experience ever if it weren't for the VERY STRONG presence of smoke in the room from the bar on the floor below us. We... More

We have stayed in 8 different hotels over the past 3 weeks and this is by far the best we have stayed in. Our room is quite big with very comfortable beds for sleeping, a table and 3 nice chairs and a workbench. There is a mini bar also. The bathroom is exceptional, large, clean and warm and has a...

We like this hotel very much except a little pricey. 1. Modern rooms with balcony facing Mount Matterhorn. 2. Free breakfast with good quality food. 3. Free wi-fi. 4. Train station pick up and drop off. 5. Central location in town.

The room was excellent, with small living room and spacious shower. Breakfast was excellent. Part of the staff speaks Italian and Portuguese. This is when I learned that over ~3 thousand Portuguese people live in town. The filet flambé served in the hotel was definitely great, prepared in front of you. Really a must. The manager of the hotel was... More

Stayed here for one night with husband. It happened to be Christmas Eve. We came to Zermatt to see the Matterhorn and to begin the Glacier Express on Christmas Day. We chose Hotel Excelsior because it offered the best price, was available, and was close to the train station. Total for one night was $259.78 USD or 225 CHF. This... More

This hotel is clearly only rated so low due to a small amount of reviews. We stayed in zermatt for one night before boarding the glacier express, but we wish we could have stayed longer! Upon arrival, we were upgraded to a balcony room with a view at no extra charge. The room was very clean and comfortable. We had... More

A nice way to spend your days while skiing in Zermatt. This is a nice, clean family owned hotel, Swiss way with all you need for a perfect skiing, other than a spa. Comfortable beds, excessive breakfast and a dinner you will remember. Service without remarks. I have spent several skiing holidays with my family here since 1985. This February... More

Terrible experience, terrible management and ownership (Doris). Room was not what was promised, breakfast is ENTIRELY exaggerated, the views promised were completely inaccurate. Very dirty..IT is NOTHING like the pictures, complete fraud. AND upon checking out, the staff was belligerent and now am having to deal with the fact that they overcharged my credit card. Spare yourself the headaches and... More
