Me and my friends had a really nice time in Zermatt. The room was always spotless clean and the service at the breakfast table was very good. We didn't have to carry any suitcases so that was a relief. The room was fine just we were a bit squashed because we had lots of luggage.Our room had a balcony and... More

My adult daughter, son and I traveled to Zermatt for a ski trip of a lifetime. Great snow and spectacular scenery made for a wonderful week, but little did we know that the highlight would be the Alex Hotel. From the instant we walked up the street toward the Alex, we were treated to exceptional service, a great room, wonderful... More

I have to praise the Alex for being beautiful and truly conveying the feeling of an upscale Swiss chalet. You feel like you are in a cozy and decorative lodge whether you are in the dining room, the bar or your hotel room. The location is convenient to town (like most) and the train station. Much of the service ranged... More

Many friends ask me why we go back to Zermatt so often and why we always stay at the Alex. The answers are simple. In my opinion there is no better ski resort than Zermatt and the hotel Alex surpasses all others. I like family owned hotels because of the owner's involvement in making the right atmosphere. The Alex has... More

Having stayed in the Alex over 20 times, we can definitely say it provides everything we need in a hotel, and more. Close to all ski lift facilities, and with a very thoughtfully laid out ski room. Should skiing be impossible, there is a gym, squash court, tennis court and swimming pool, and a great spa. The food is always... More

It was our first visit to Zermatt and the Alex, but we shall be back. I cannot add much to the comments made previously. The hotel is quirky, the bar great, many of the the staff part of the family, the food is a class act, the rooms lovely and the Spa facilities spot on after a days skiing. Being... More

We returned again to the Alex for New Year, because if you want to spend this time in a Snowy mountain paradise, no-one does it better. This is our 6 or 7th visit over the years and is always as good, with an amazingly friendly atmosphere, warm and homely and welcoming. The staff all seem to remain the same, so... More
