Good location, we stood here for 2 nights in room 206 ...it was very clean, we could see Materhorn directly from the bed. Friendly staff, we had a problem with the booking, meaning that we were charged twice for the stay but we received in few days the money back on the card...so everything went well. We stayed one evening... More

We stayed one week from 27 Dec until Jan 3, 2015. Summary of the week: great Zermatt, poor hotel. Feedback given based on dozen of stays in Zermatt in many different hotels. I had much better experience in other places for less money. Here is why I won't go to Hotel Ambiance in the future: - If you want your... More

The hotel is not as big as others which makes it very charming and cosy. We enjoyed the days with a lovely view to the Matterhorn. We had a great room that was newly refurbished, very clean and comfortable. It is definitely good value for money. Even though the hotel is situated a bit further away from the train station...

Hotel Ambiance is value-for- money. Though situated a little far from the train station, it is easy to get there by foot using the main street. Do not use the short cut way up Hofmattstrasse as what follows will be an upward slope which ends with the railways. This route is especially tough with heavy luggages. The rooms are clean... More
