Welschen is a clean, cozy and nicely-appointed chalet-style hotel, situated along the side of a hill, across the river from the center of Zermatt. The hosts provide a friendly, professional level of service, comfortable rooms with a terrific view of the Matterhorn, and a nice breakfast each morning. It's quite lovely and situated just far enough away from the bustle... More

A lovely hotel- just the way you picture a romantic hotel in the Alps. Nice rooms, a lovely breakfast and the owners to meet and greet you and give you the tips you need, We spent NewYear's eve and had a room facing the valley (and MAtterhorn) it was absolutely spectacular. When I first saw that there were I do... More

Stayed for 2 nights, was given a room with the kitchen. clean and comfortable. Great place, but only if you are able to climb a few flight of stairs. Will choose this again if return to Zermatt. Away from the bustle of town, but just 5 minutes walk away, Great host and well and thoroughly personalized attention.

We had a very nice stay at the Hotel Welschen. The breakfasts were just as you'd hope for, with rich coffee and lots of fruit and a variety of fine cheese and etc. Our room was also fine. The location is, as others have remarked, quite nice as it's just a little bit (minutes) from the main cow-paths. Zermatt can... More

We stayed here for two nights and would definitely return if we come back to Zermatt. The room we stayed in (room 10) was traditional in style but with a modern bathroom and a great view of the Matterhorn. As other reviews have mentioned the 'fish bowl' bathroom is not to everyone's taste but there is a curtain you can... More

Lovely family-owned hotel. Well situated close to centre but not amongst the bustle. Our bedroom looks out to the Matterhorn, surely the most spectacular mountain view in Europe. Hotel very tasteful and a lot of trouble has been taken over the details. Steps up to hotel but everything in Zermatt is up.

It's uncommon to find most reviewers appear to agree that this is a lovely little hotel/B&B. Maybe that's because it offers good, reliable service and is very clean and comfortable. So I'm not going to repeat all the praise given by everyone else, but will just highlight a few things. My first reason to book this hotel was because of... More

From the moment we arrived at the hotel welschen we were made to feel at home. The hotel is 3 star but in my opinion should be awarded 4 stars. The service given is among some of the best I have experienced. The hotel has a home feel to it and has plenty of character with some quirky edges to... More

My wife and I recently visited Zermatt and stayed at the Hotel Welschen. While Switzerland is expensive, we found this place to be a great value. The staff were very friendly. The hotel's location is close to the main train station with a shutttle service to and from the Hotel. The Sunnega Cable car access is located right next to... More

We booked this hotel because it had one of the cheaper rooms with a view. They shows us to our room (#1) and it was amazing! Clean, quaint, all the things you need. This is not a posh place, but it has tremendous character. The distance from the city is about a 5 minute walk. I am writing this post... More
