We have just completed a fantastic week in Zermatt staying at the Rex and we couldn't praise it more highly. We had a lovely room looking out over the front of the hotel so had a view of the Matterhorn, which was wonderful. The staff were great, greeting us with smiles and conversation whenever we returned to the hotel. Particular... More

Fantastic hotel with extremely friendly, happy staff. Free shuttle from the train station, sauna, jacuzzi, pool and breakfast included, the price is about as good as it gets for Zermatt! The location is also superb, a short walk from anything you need.

My husband and I stayed here for one night. Zermatt is not very big so almost all the hotels are more or less at walkable distance from Bahnhof (Train station). Hotel Alex is a beautiful hotel and it also provides pick/drop facility from/to Bahnhof which was very convenient. You can also leave your luggage after check-out which they can deliver... More

We spent the last two nights at the Hotel Rex and loved it, it has been the best hotel in Europe we have stayed at over the last two weeks! The receptionist Christina is devine, she cannot do enough for you and her sense of humour is great. The hotel prizes it self on service and all the staff certainly... More

From the time we were picked up from the hotel in an electric car to the time we were shuttled back the stay at Hotel Rex was perfect. Very, helpful , polite great staff. Nothing was too much from lending chargers to providing helpful advice and then a little thermos for a night cuppa. We felt utterly spoilt. They even... More

It's the unforgettable hotel when I travelled in Zermatt in July. I was arranged the room which faces to the Matterhorn. When I stand on the balcony, the mountain and the peak is in front of me. A sunny day afternoon I had a cup of tea on the balcony and enjoyed the shining from Matterhorn, then I knew this... More

Nice comfy rooms with all possible amenities. The spa in the hotel was good. The jacuzzi n the indoor pool was awesome experience. We were on our honeymoon here. Zermatt was the best place to be in all the places we visited in Switzerland n Paris. The ride on the Glacier express which got us to Zermatt from St. Moritz... More

Stayed here for the second time (first in 2009) We returned because of the great value and friendliness of the staff. This time even better!! Very comfortable rooms and excellent spa area and swimming pool. Good central location but very quiet. If you are skiing I would recommend the Azzura Sports ski shop just over the road.

The Rex is just perfect, clean and comfortable, with everything you could want, it even has twins that you can separate. I have stayed here summer with my wife and winter skiing with a friend, and it is perfect for both. It has a great wellness centre with sauna, steam room, pool etc, and its close to everything Zermatt has... More
