This was the final stop after hiking the Haute Route and it took a short walk to find the hotel but was worth it. Christoph was wonderful and went out of his way to provide advice and information. The room was large and clean and the breakfast was well done. Walking around Zermatt is highly entertaining and you can't beat... More

I really want to rank his hotel higher. Christoph is an excellent host who will do anything in his power to make you feel welcome. It was raining hard when we arrived at the train station; a call to the hotel and Christoph was there in minutes to give us a ride. The hotel was a short walk to the... More

It has a cosy and warm atmosphere. Mr. Christof the owner, Lena and Andrea were really nice hosts & friendly people! The hotel is small, but its location is great, a little walk to the main area where shops, cafes and ski rentals are located. Also, room size was good enough, there's free wifi that works in the reception and... More

Our room was large with a great view. Great location. Friendly owners. That's the good stuff. Terrible, limited breakfast. There weren't enough products in the bathroom, i.e. shampoo, soap, etc. And what was provided was in small packets, so it wasn't even enough to wash hair and body. The furniture in the room felt broken down and rickety. I've seen... More

The hotel itself is great, rooms are good size with a lovely balcony.It isn't modern but if you aren't looking for a fancy hotel, something clean, friendly and comfortable,... More

The City Hotel Garni is a great little hotel in the heart of Zermatt. Ange and Chrisof are excellent hosts and very knowlegable of the area. Christof helps arrange for a mountain guide, who took us skiing on the Schwartzhof glacier, an incredible experience. The location is excellent - 2 minute walk to the Sunnegge train, less than five to... More

We had four nights at the Hotel City on a long weekend skiing in February 2007. I'd definitely go back again. The City Hotel is in a brilliant position - five minutes walk from the Sunegga lift, one minute from a bus stop up to the Klein Matterhorn and five minutes from the town centre / bahnhof. The rooms are... More

City Hotel Garni far exceeded our expectations -- the room was fairly large and extremely clean, we had a view of the Matterhorn from our balcony, the location was excellent (4 minute walk to the train station, 5 minute walk from anything in town), breakfast was more than adequate, etc, etc. Nothing to complain about. Also, the owners were very... More
