The most impressive for this hotel is Matterhorn view from my room. Room was ok only shower was not work and very less amenities. Staff was not standby after 10 pm. Shopping a are just around hotel by 5 minutes walking. Breakfast was simple, not variety. I try teppanyaki at hotel for dinner, it was not delicious.

Stayed there 4 days in jan 2015. Very nice breakfast. Special orders possible. Nice big rooms and very kind service. Location was also great - 5 min walk from main street and also an easy walk to Matterhorn Express - took the buss though :-) - For smokers they have a super smoking lounge

My corner room was spacious, but the AC never worked. Service was geared towards getting things done with no additional warmth. It will be much better if this classic, touristy hotel could run half an extra mile to make guests feel at home.

This trip to Switzerland was a gift to my mom. We wanted to visit Geneva, Zermatt, Bern and Lucerne. We loved this hotel! It's 5th floor is a family suite. We stayed in the family suite. Our room faced an amazing view of the Matterhorn. Sophia was a great manager. She handled everything we needed. Thanks!

Well located, well furnished, with two good restaurants, one Japanese, one Thai. Clean and well kept rooms. The bar and the smoking lounge needs some warmth. Breakfast is fine except the lady server who was very stingy in parting with the coffee.

This is a very friendly family-style hotel, with a convenient location (about half-way between the main train station and the departure station for Matterhorn Glacier Paradise (about 10 minutes' walk from each). The rooms (even single rooms) are well equipped and spacious. Free wifi on unlimited devices is a big plus, although it seems to struggle a bit when the... More

Albana Real Hotel is the worst hotel where we stayed with the family due to the following reasons: 1) Rooms are dirty and not properly cleaned; 2) The elevator brakes very often. It just stops all of a sudden and opens it doors in the mid level. After all we started to avoid taking a lift; 3) Constant barking of... More
