First impression, now this is what I thought a Swiss Hotel would look like. Heavy warm wood interior. The Bar is not to be missed (Bartender, not friendly, but I think most of the Swiss residents have a stern personality) Room was quite interesting in a good way. Large, clean, good beds, slippers and robes supplied. Do not, I insist,... More

Stayed here for a couple nights while on a tour. I have to say it is definitely one of the most unique hotels that I have ever seen in my life. Almost an overload to the senses when you walk into the bar area, which made it kind of hard to take it all in. The front desk staff was... More

WOW. Is all I can say. Bravo and A+++. The style, the service, the location, the cleanliness are all A+++ I had a room facing the town and could see the Matterhorn from our deck. I loved this hotel. The sitting rooms, the gym, the pool area. Just beautiful. I would love to come back here one day. This was... More

We stayed at the Hotel Alex in Zermatt and it is a most charming hotel. It has carved wood everywhere, a good restaurant that serves an excellent breakfast and dinner, a beautiful pool and whirlpool and a sauna. It is right around the corner from the railroad station that brings you into Zermatt. It does not have a view of... More

We spent two nights at Hotel Alex. Our room was great. It was comfortable and close to everything. My husband loved their collection of rocks scattered throughout the property. We spent time on the terrace enjoying the sun and ambience which includes the Matterhorn peaking out over the rooftops. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Once you have enter to Hotel Alex, you'll feel like you are on another Era. Beautiful Gems, Stones, Wood Carvings will greet you on their Lobby and Restaurant. Rooms are spacious and note that Alex offer Swimming pool (which is extraordinary to Zermatt Hotels) plus Squash and Tennis Court. Staffs were mostly Portuguese which are very friendly and helpful.

Suggestion: book a room/suite with a... More

The view out the window of our room was beautiful. We even took pictures of our room and the bar area to show family and friends back home. Very unique and wonderful. Clean and well maintained. Zermatt is a must visit if you are in the area.

We love Zermatt and always stay at the Alex. A great hotel. The staff make your stay really special. The food is fantastic both for the evening meal and the breakfast buffet. Lovely swimming pool. Great decoration throughout. Convenient for both the main railway station and the Gornergrat station. Can't fault it.

A great hotel where the staff were friendly and competent. Very close to the Zermatt bahnhof. We had a wonderful view of the Matterhorn from our verandah. The best hotel swimming pool that I have seen. The decore of the hotel could be described as 'novel' with carved furniture and timberwork but very comfortable. Even the room keys are proper... More
