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

Bang in the middle of Zermatt, most welcome after a long walk to reach it up the valley. Very friendly welcome and no fuss about heavy boots, rucksack or the trail weary Englishman. I would certainly return (and hope to). Great value. Nice balconies on one side of the building with views of the village church and the unrivalled Matterhorn.... More

This place is well-located and easy to find from the station and to walk to other places in Zermatt. The owners were very friendly and offered helpful advice on what to do in Zermatt. I stayed in a single room with shared bathroom. The room was simply furnished but clean and the cable TV had many channels. Like many places,... More

Hotel Alpina, well, what a fantastic hotel! I have nothing bad to say about the place. The hosts were wonderful (even with a rather sick 4 year old!) the breakfast was lovely, the rooms were very clean and the bed very comfortable. We had great views from the room of the mountains all around. It's in a wonderful location only... More
