We stayed at this hotel at the end of a trip on the Glacier Express. The hotel is located just across the street from train station, so it is very easy to find. We were very happy with the hotel, the rooms we had were nicely made up and while the bathrooms were clean and serviceable, the decor was a... More

Came here a ski trip with a group of 20. The room was nice. The pillows are very soft. You are right in the middle of town can easily walk to the slopes. It's also next door to the food coop. You can buy snacks and booze there. Each room has a fridge. Bring your own shower gel as they... More

We stayed at this hotel on the night of April 5th. We arrived at Zermatt from Chur via Glacier Express. The is smack in front (on the right) of the station exit. We found the location very convenient. Some of the recent reviews of the hotel have not been very positive, however, we were quite happy with the hotel and... More

The room smelled like cigarette smoke as soon as we got there. We raised the issue with management and, initially, nothing was done. Subsequently, after about two days, they offered to change our room, but they never acknowledged there was a problem or that it wouldn't occur in any other room. We left.

This was - no question - the most expensive hotel we've ever stayed at. For £250 a night you get a room for the night right opposite the railway station, but that's about it. The location was the only thing going for it. There's a Co-Op right next door for snacks and drinks. I'm not sure if this was good... More

Stayed here for four night with my family. We paid 498 chf. a night. The service was bad, the room was dated and the food not even worthy as dog food. Do not know how this place can be a 3 star hotel - they do not even deserve 1.

This hotel was really nice. What nailed it for us was the extremely warm welcome and the enthusiasm of the young lady at the reception. The hotel is bang opposite Zermatt train station and since Zermatt in itself is such a beautiful place the walk from the hotel to most places around was pleasant. We did not eat at the... More

Close to railway station. Overlooks the town Square. Balcony with great views. Friendly Reception staff but not available after 7.30pm. Wi fi doesn't work. Lovely little mock Swiss town Views of the Matterhorn. Plenty of things to do even if not sking or boarding. Fabulous cable car ride to the top of Mt Pilateus. Nowhere to dry towels and wet... More

We stayed in this hotel a year ago. The price was low in comparence with the other hotels and for that we got a nice room, maybe a bit dated, with a great view. We had lots of fun watching the people in the main street and the Matterhorn was full in view! The people complaining about this hotel probably... More

We arrived in Zermatt having no reservation and on a busy day, and proceeded to scout out the hotel situation. Surprise, surprise...after walking all over town and visiting the tourist office, this hotel stood right across from the train station and had the best deal going for us. It was 156 Swiss Francs for two with breakfast, and by Zermatt... More
