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

We are in the Ambiance hotel in Zermatt right now. We have got an upgrade from a double room to a Junior Suite and we are more than happy here. We have a whirlpool in the room and a great view from the balcony. The food in the restaurant is perfect and the stuff is friendly. We gonna come back... More

I traveled from America to Zermatt to meet with a friend to do some skiing in February. I booked a one room/one person for two nights on the weekend. All was well until Friday night came around. My friend staying in an adjacent hotel came over in the evening(1030pmish) and had to use to the front ringer since they lock... More

The rooms are tidy, stylish and well kept. The very friendly staff helps you throughout the day. The restaurant offers an excellent 4 course dinner at exceptional prices - this alone is worth it. What I enjoyed most was the dip into the outdoor jaccuzzi with the Matterhorn in the background while nipping a beer.

stayed for one night in December on a whirlwind trip, beautiful hotel, lovely interiors and furnishings, breakfast dining room superb and so was breakfast. Would go again. A little way from the station to walk in the winter was a bit of a bind but otherwise it was lovely.

I booked a room for 5 nights with a balcony and view of Matterhorn. What I received was a small room with no balcony and no view of Matterhorn. When I asked the desk for the room I was promised, they told me that because I booked through an alternate travel company, they did not have to guarantee what the... More

The hotel was not what I was expecting for a room in that high price. I stayed in the hotel some days before, I took the suite but the room was not a suite, it was just a double comfort room, old fashion and not modern at all, too expensive just for the matterhorn view that was offering and was...

We stayed at hotel Ambiance in Zermatt for one Saturday night, on January 2014. We have booked the junior suite with Matterhorn view, in order to have a comfortable and very pleasant stay. The truth is that the junior suite is just a simple standard room, and the photos in booking have been just taken years before. Consider only the... More

Ambiance has a perfect view ar Matterhorn from some of the rooms. T he service is perfect and the hotel has an excellent restaurant. As a skier the location is perfect. It is a short way to the train heading for Rothorn and it is actually ski-in possibilities. Good value. The only negative to tell about the hotel is the... More

I haven't stayed in the Ambiance only eaten in the restaurant. The food here is excellent, especially the daily menu of five courses, one of which comprises a salad buffet full of delicacies. The chef cooks and presents excellent food. It's a family run establishment and the owners are very friendly and welcoming (in fact, he is the chef).
