I really liked this hotel. It is off of the main walking street of Zermatt about 10 minutes from the taxi drop-off. You walk in the door and walk up a few steps to the reception area. Off of the reception area is a large breakfast area. After check-in you precede by elevator to the upper floors where the rooms... More

The location of about 2 blocks from the railroad station combined with excellent reviews brought me here. The nice quiet room and spacious clean bathroom welcomed me and the many choices for breakfast convinced me this was a very good place. If I return to Zermatt, I would choose it again.

We 5 (Mom, Dad, Son,11, Daughter,7, and Grandma) stayed in two rooms for three 3 nights, the first week of January. We arrived by train and left on the Glacier Express. This hotel is a jewel in Zermatt. You cannot get a better location, friendlier, more helpful staff, and great rooms. One of our large rooms had a big balcony... More

The Hotel Testa Grigia is the perfect choice for Zermatt. It is in the heart of the village, newly renovated, and the rooms are impeccable. Everything was thought of and built with the highest standards, you even have a coffee machine. Standards of cleanliness are extremely high. As to the service, every staff member is polite, knowledgeable and professional. Really... More

We stayed here for two nights in Feb of 2015. Very conveniently located. A quick 5 minute walk from the train station, and was close to all attractions in Zermatt. It was a bit hard to find at first - but once you realize it is by the green apothecary sign, you'll have no trouble at all. No need for... More

We picked Hotel Testa Grigla while we were on our way to Zermatt. It was a really good choice. You can see Mount Matterhorn in certain rooms. Although, you have to pay a little more, but it's worth it. You come outside to the balcony you will see Mount Matterhorn. It is also very close to the train station, walking... More

Very large, clean, comfortable room and bathroom. Matterhorn view from the balcony. Good breakfast, helpful staff, luggage storage after check out. Great location - only a 5 minute walk from the train station and close to Rothorn and Gornergrat lifts. Klein matterhorn lift is about a 20 minute uphill walk. Not cheap but great value for Zermatt considering the location.

I stayed here for one night in mid-November. The hotel is located less than five minutes walking from the train station. I arrived before check-in but my room was ready so I was given the key early. The check-in hostess spoke excellent English, provided me with a map of the city, and escorted me to my room. The room was... More
