Stayed here with a large group of friends over New Year's for four nights. We'd originally booked six rooms for anywhere between three and six nights. The owner, Mr Silvano, is very eclectic, as mentioned in other reviews. He only accepts cash--no credit cards. When we went to pay upon departure, he got upset and claimed that all rooms had... More

the hotel is less than 10 minutes from the train station. the old man who runs the hotel with his wife is really helpful. we booked a double room and a triple room. the triple room was meant to be on the top floor. when he saw the luggage we had, and because he had spare capacity, he gave us...

I went to Zermatt for just one overnight with my 5 year old and a friend and we were looking for a place with affordable separate rooms. We ended up getting 2 separate rooms at Cima, they each had 2 twin beds and a shower and sink, the toilet was in the hallway. The room was small, a little tv,... More

Located just 3 minutes walk from the station, so very easy to get to and easy access to downtown, lifts etc. There is a park on the south side so you get an unobstructed $1M view of the Matterhorn if you get a room on that side (like rooms 8, 9 and 10, I think). Simple functional room but double... More

We came at low season, and the owner won us over with his charm -- we had a comfortable, if basic, room with a view of the Matterhorn. No breakfast (because they were closing down for a few weeks) Very convenient from the train, the supermarket, and the rest of the town. Quite affordable as well (for Zermatt). No wireless,... More

The location, a little off the beaten path, was excellent- quiet and close to the train station and the COOP grocery. Our room had a small balcony from which we could take in a stunning view of the Matterhorn. The rooms we had were ample in size, but everything creaked: the floors, the doors, the beds- and the beds were... More

We had a similar experience to the other reviewer when making booking changes and getting an irate email. However when we arrived in Zermatt and met Mr Silvano, we understood. It seems to us that he’s still coming to terms with the computer age but other than that, he came across as a very nice friendly person. Our stay was... More

Excellent location: close enough to everything in Zermatt, at the same time a bit off the crowded roads. Most rooms have a view of the Matterhorn. The breakfast spread was fantastic for a hotel of this price range. Staff was friendly, we could use the TV room and bathroom facilities even after checkout. The bathroom/toilet was a bit cramped and... More

When I initially read the tripadvisor reviews, I wondered how so many people could be completely divided on the owner of this hotel. Half of the people say he is friendly and helpful, and half say he is rude, hangs up the phone and threatens to cancel reservations. It makes sense now because with me, he was both! Initially, he...

We stayed here for one night in July. The owner is a really lovely old man who is friendly and helpful. We had a room on the first floor. Our room had 2 single beds, sink & shower, table, tv and balcony. The toilet was located next to our room, don't think there were too many people staying there as... More
