“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Hotel is clean, comfortable and spacious. Great views of the river and mountains with 2 balconies - one off the living room and one off the master bedroom. Perfect location to watch the sheep and herders pass thru the streets in the early evening.

Quiet location away from the main "town" and closer to the gondolas and mountains.

Nice kitchenette with an addictively delicious nespresso maker. Bathroom was large and nicely appointed with a rainfall shower head (and great water pressure!) Laundry facilities are available in the common area.

Casa Vanessa is to be reached through a tunnel in the rock and an elevator, our apartment on the 3rd floor enjoyed a wonderfull view onto Zermatt village and the surrounding mountains. It is 5 min away from the cable car that takes you to Klein Matterhorn and 8 min away from Zermatt village centre. The appartment was nicely decorated with big windows and a large balcony, perfect for zipping a morning coffee or evening glass of wine. I think you can book with or without hotel service. We did without, which for 4 days is perfectly fine. The kitchen is well equipped and has enough tools and panes to cook nice meals and save money from restaurants. There is even a Nespresso machines with "kapseln" available from reception. The sound from the downward river is pleasant and present. Overall I really recommend this place!

I stayed in this apparthotel in June, 2010. It was absolutely wonderful. The hotel is modern with astonishing view, in a high neighborhood of Zermatt . I got the room with 2 beds. It was very clean, comfortable, with soft blankets, clean and large bathroom with tub and very hot water. The furniture is also new. The attendance is very helpful and friendly.

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Vanessa. Zermatt is a beautiful village and the view from the room was great. The room was large enough . The pre-trip email correspondence was very prompt and courteous ( by the owner Norbert). The elevator was being serviced when we checked out and the owners and staff helped us with the steep descent with our luggage.

The one thing that would have been better is leveraging local information even that Zermatt is a tiny place. The hotel staff member kept referring us to the local information booth at the railway station ( 1 km away).

The place is very lovely, modern looking exciting layout and features. Close to the lifts (2min walk) to the Glacier Paradise, Close to the Free Shuttle (electric as well) bus stop (front of the building) 8 min walk to the bubbly city centre. Staff is very friendly, rooms are gorgeous, beds are super comfy, windows everywhere, view to the mountains. Honesty fridge downstairs ;) Reasonable prices. Balcony. Sauna is fabulous. I only can recommend this to to anyone who is looking for to visit Zermatt either a short romantic trip or a long big group holiday. Summer just as good as winter.

Room Tip: Everything on the fourth floor (Room No 4xx) are the best! As you can see on their website.

the pictures on the website enticed us to book a room for 4 nights at casa vanessa. the view from the hotel was great, kitchen was well equipped, beds were comfortable. however, the downside was that it was far from the town (needed to walk up a long slope) and the buffet breakfast was a disappointment. it is good as it is very near the furi ski lifts though. service was nice but i found it weird that even an electric taxi ride had to be paid even though it was just a short ride from the owner of this hotel. since was abit far from the main city center, we may stay somewhere else next time. however, it was certainly a great area to relax due to its fantastic views.

There was nothing not to like. The location was in easy walking to both ski lift and shops/restaurants . The layout of the unit was very family friendly. The kitchen had everything needed to prepare own meals, every gadget was thought of (very impressed).The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom had a great bath as well as several shower options, all great for after a tiring day on the slopes.Would highly recommend to friends and family.

Room Tip: Room 41 had a great view of the Alps and had 3 balconies
