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

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
