What makes this property is the wonderful sisters who Ron the hotel. They are hard workers, honest and go out of there way to make you happy. The rooms are simple. The breakfast is very good. I highly recommend this property to base your ski vacation from.

Spent a few days at Alpina hotel when skiing in Zermat area - a lovely skiing experience! This is an ordinary hotel when it comes to facility standard, but great service from the 2 sisters running it! Zermat is a nice village, and a great area for skiing.

Old-fashioned and simple but very clean and good hotel in the heart of Zermatt! Small rooms but all facilities are ok. Very friendly ladies who run the hotel and btw they gave us money back for 1 night as we decided to leave earlier which was really nice of them!!! Pragmatic option to stay in expensive Zermatt!

The Alpina is situated in the very center of Zermatt- anything is in walking distance. The hotel itself is old fashioned but has its charme. Rooms are small and functional. The two ladies running the hotel are very helpful and friendly. Walls are bit thin- bring ear plugs if you have a light sleep.

Hotel Alpina is a family run hotel. It's easy to find with the map and direction gaven by the hotel. Good location, it's just a short walk to the main street in Zermatt with many restaurants and shops. The sisters who run the hotel are superb friendly and nice. As I was leaving early in the morning, they packed my... More

Hotel is cozy and clean. There is lift (3-4paxs only). Breakfast is pretty simple but its tasty. The 2 sisters who are in-charge of managing the hotel are friendly and helpful. There is no kettle in the room. But you can ask the ladies for a thermoflask of hot water. The view from rooms are good. The environment is good... More

Beautiful small hotel tucked away in a cute, quiet little corner, off of the main street. Although Zermatt is a car-free village, it still sees it's fair share of taxis and service vehicles, so you are far from any street noise. It is an easy walk from the train station, and I was carrying two backpacks. My lovely single room... More

This was our second stay at the Hotel Alpina. Both Natalie and Manuella, the property managers for the Aftenblattens (who own the hotel), were extremely kind and friendly to our family. One afternoon hike, we were caught in a downpour and Manuella helped us dry our things when we got back to the hotel and Natalie helped us with our... More

The hotel is split into several buildings. We are on the first floor with a view of the Matterhorn from our balcony. The room is very comfortable with separate bath and sitting rooms. Dinner and breakfast were both good quality and plenty of it. There is a large building being built next door. This may block the view of the... More
