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

Location of the hotel, ambience and view from the room balcony was simply breattaking. I stayed here for 2 days with my family during our summer vaccation in July2013. Courtesy extended by hotel staff right from reception to room service was amazing. We chose a room / suite with Matterhorn view. The room was spacious, had all the required luxury... More

Great pool and spa area. And well kept grounds with plenty of seating and loungers which were newly replaced while we were there. Great location for all facilities... More

My husband and I have just returned from a week's stay at the Rex. We deliberately chose a bed and breakfast hotel so that we could sample the various restaurants in Zermatt and we were not disappointed. The room was spacious with plenty of storage space and a lovely ensuite with everything we needed. Breakfast was plentiful with good choices... More

Lovely welcome as usual - this was our seventh stay. Great breakfast buffet. lovely room and beautiful spa. The staff are all excellent. The area is quiet but only a few minutes from the centre of town and a 100m from the ski bus.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Rex three weeks ago with our 6 year old son for six nights.

We will return to the... More
