The hotel is located close to the train station. I found it to be warm, cozy, and it has a nice patio looking into the mountains. Great location and near a grocery store. It is quite, clean, and comfortable. A hearty breakfast is served every morning. I love the old fashion key & holder. Helpful and friendly staff. We will... More

We have just come back from a week over New Year and we are so happy we found this place. Simple, basic, clean, comfortable and well situated and not extortionate like many places in Zermatt. Very friendly people who always had a smile on their face. Would stay here again no problem and would highly recommend. Breakfast offered enough to... More

My husband and I stayed here during Christmas vacation and it was picture perfect! The staff were friendly and accommodating. The included breakfast was varied and satisfying, and our room was absolutely perfect and romantic. It had the feeling of a rustic, mountain cabin with all the comfort of a high end hotel. We had a balcony overlooking the village... More

We visited hotel Elite Garni during Christmas briefly. The hotel staff Annalena is very helpful. We asked for recommendation for restaurant and we have got a good list from Annalena. She helped us booked restaurant before our arrival to ensure we have a place to eat during Xmas. The hotel also offers transfer from train station for free even though... More

We stayed for 3 nights. The room was well appointed and the bedroom and bathroom were both spotless. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was fine with eggs, cereals, good variety of bread and rolls, meat and cheese. There was also a tv in the breakfast room showing latest weather forecast and webcam views from mountain stations. The hotel is... More

We booked our tour of Switzerland a few months ago. We live in Basel and selected our train tickets with hotel. Everything was suppose to be 1st class including the hotel. I beg to differ. The train to Zermatt from Brig was close to about 3rd class... if there is such a class. We left Basel at 9am and what... More

The Hotel Elite is a little old-fashioned, but the rooms are very clean and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. This was one of the most affordable hotels available during the peak ski season. If you spend a little more for one of the superior doubles, you won't be disappointed. There are mountain views and the rooms are pretty... More

Stayed here for one night. Due to the ridiculous prices Switzerland attracts, this Hotel was one of the few in our price range. Last visit we stayed in an awful Hostel in Zermatt, so this visit we were intend on living it up in comparison! This Hotel was a great find. The owner was very welcoming and we were allowed... More

Booking this hotel more than a month in advance, my husband and I paid $300 US/night for two nights, but since this was the splurge on our vacation, we were excited about the trip. When we checked in, we asked to verify that our “Diner’s Club International” (aka Discover) card would work. It was listed on the check-in window as... More

For very expensive Zermatt we found a very good deal at this hotel. Considering that Zermatt is not very big, it is quite centrally located. It is very much a "mom & pop" type hotel, homey and old fashioned, with clean and comfortable rooms, but in an old world style (the TV was prehistoric, but we were not there for... More
