The day was clear and the Matterhorn wore a stripe of light at sunset as we rode the train into town. We were advised "don't bother" to go to Zermatt unless it was clear - and we lucked out! Called the Tannenhof Hotel on the way into town and owner was very accommodating - she'd stay in the office until... More

This is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed at. Our room was tiny and the ceiling was so low you thought this must be the basement. The room was also right next to the staircase. Whenever someone walks through it all the wood is creaking so loud you can't sleep. Never again.

We stayed 3 nights here. A friendly hotel where you have a home sweet home feeling. Not expensive, good location. Their home made breakfast buffet is very delicious. Shared bathroom and toilet but you will not feel inconvenient. Clean area, internet at lobby but sometimes you can access in the room. They will give you advise to travel and also... More

My Swiss wife and kids, together with my sister in-law from Basel and her family joined us in Zermatt in ealry January during our visit to CH from California and Hotel Tannennhof came highly recommended. Not only because of its location but because of the manager Christiane Wittmer and the care she gives her guests. It could absolutely not have... More

Very friendly staff, clean and quiet rooms! This hotel is well situated if you want to stay in the middle of Zermatt without the noise of a "main" street. The (female) manager is very attentive and professional. She helps you whenever you ask for help (if she can). The rooms are small, but adequate. The bathroom was very clean and... More

We just returned to the US from a lovely trip to Geneva and Zermatt. Our four nights in the Tannenhof were heavenly. Great location, wonderfully friendly and helpful innkeeper, and comfortable, well-kept rooms. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and delicious (fresh breads, amazing homemade muesli, meats, cheeses, fresh soft boiled eggs). Our room was clean and quiet. As expected for... More

We visited Zermatt to work for two weeks and the Tannenhof was perfectly situated being in the middle of Zermatt so everything was a short walk away for us. The customer service was excellent and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I stayed here for one night in February with a friend in room 26. We were greeted on arrival by Christiane who was extremely friendly and gave us plenty of suggestions of things to do whilst in Zermatt. The hotel is an easy 5-10 minute walk from the train station. The breakfast included is great and has a wide variety... More

I have stayed here before and found it to be an excellent location. I spent two weeks here this January to find that there was a new manager. There are lots of nice changes to this very traditional hotel. Christiane has already made it feel so much more welcoming and the service is excellent. The breakfasts have always been good... More

The rooms are small as usual in Europe, but clean and they are enough for sleeping afer a winderfull skiiing or trecking day. Breakfast is very good and gives whatever one's need for... More
