Got complimentary pickup and drop to the Zermatt railway station. Cosy hotel with good rooms. Our room had a small kitchenette with basic kitchenwares. Extremely helpful staff with good breakfast. The view from the window was beautiful. Also has a temperature controlled swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam & sauna facilities.

Easy to get to Main Street from this hotel. Staff was good, with the exception of the bartender who was not all friendly. The young man we met when we first arrived was very helpful with suggestions for restaurants. Room was small but faced the Matterhorn and bed was comfortable but we could have done without the heavy quilt. Breakfast... More

We loved the hotel and especially liked that it wasn't on the Main Street. The staff were extreme helpful, especially the young man. Told us about places to go and tipping customs. Why this hotel isn't ranked higher I don't know since the rooms are nice, breakfast was good, and the location was great!

We have stayed at a few places in zermatt over the last 13 years, and I can honestly say, that this has been the best for value for money, location, facilities and most important the breakfast. The leisure facilities we fab, after a full day skiing, there was nothing better than relaxing in the sauna etc. Breakfast offered was a... More

Zermatt has plenty of really expensive options but few that rate really well on the value side of the equatio. % star luxury its not but if you want all the hotel features in what describes itself as a B&B this the option. Good sized, decent rooms and good public spaces along with excellent breakfast and the bonus of a... More

My husband and I stayed here a few weeks ago for a ski holiday with friends. It was my husband's birthday when we arrived so I asked for a room with a nice view and boy did we get one! Wow the Matterhorn was right there, smiling down at us as we sat on the balcony drinking champagne. Unfortunately my... More

Like most things in Switzerland, Rex is a well functioning hotel that has all the elements of quality. The location is OK, the rooms are tidy and the personnel both attentive and easy-going at the same time. And you even have a small kitchenette in your room, which may come handy if you do not want to eat out every... More

From the moment we entered, the front desk at the hotel Rex was incredibly friendly and helpful. My dad and I had a great week of skiing in Zermatt and found the rex to be an ideal home base. Pros: - spa facilities are sparkling with hot tub, indoor pool, sauna, steam room, etc. - room had a balcony with... More
