“A Swiss Alpine chalet experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Soon after my online booking was confirmed, I received an email from the hotel welcoming me,wishing me a wonderful holiday ahead and requesting to know my time of arrival for the complimentary pick up at the station. This set the tone for a very warm welcome and a great stay at this charming Swiss chalet style, centrally located hotel with well appointed rooms and free wifi. I had a spectacular view of the iconic Matterhorn from my room (with a balcony) on the 5th floor from where I could enjoy the scenic beauty of the entire Alpine valley and river flowing by. As this was the topmost floor, my bathroom had a glass roof with a view of the sky above. The continental breakfast was delicious and the afternoon tea and pastries a bonus! As Zermatt is a car free zone, the battery powered car with a gracious liveried chauffeur to receive and see one off at the station- all contributed to a splendid interlude in Zermatt.

Room Tip: The fifth floor with a view if the Matterhorn is highly recommended.

Arrived by train in light rain. Hotel had a small electric taxi waiting to pick up patrons for a fee. Bags were unloaded into the foyer. We did not get wet. We were then welcomed by the friendliest of welcomes, greeted with orange juice and champagne, a full explanation of the hotel, breakfast, shopping, ski hire and the restaurants. Rooms were very comfortable. We had 2 adjacent rooms with balconies with clear views of the Matterhorn. Magic!

Buffet breakfast had a good selection of hot and cold dishes. Free beverages were also available at 6pm on the patio to enjoy the Matterhorn, sunshine and church bells. Sheer bliss!

We were at Allalin Hotel for the weekend and it was an amazing weekend. The view from room was beautiful; it was the view of the cemetery. The breakfast choice was limited but the food was good. Our room and bathroom were small but comfortable and cozy. The service was great and the staffs were friendly.

From the moment you step into this hotel you feel at home. From the drinks on arrival to the warm fire and friendly front desk staff.

The decor is very authentic but not too overdone. The rooms are simple but very clean & neat. Traveling with a teenage boy means food is of the highest priority and he gave a double thumbs up to breakfast. Again just like the hotel itself simple but really well done.

Out of all of our hotels during our Swiss holiday this was definitely a stand out. Great value for money. I would definitely recommend it and have no hesitation staying there again.

We liked the hotel very much during my 5 nights stay. The hotel is in perfect location where you can simply walk to most of the best restaurants and shops as Zermatt is eco car-free little village. Skibus stop is 1 minute walk after I picked up my gear from the ski room provided by the hotel and just located down besides the hotel by the riverside. The hotel itself is beautifully decorated in cozy Swiss alpine style with lovely fireplace in the living-room. Everywhere is well-maintained and clean. Staff is friendly, helpful and well communicated . I even bought skipasses at the reception in order to avoid long line-up at ticket office. You will be so happy when you come back from all day ski in the afternoon and see free refreshments, tea and snacks in the lobby provided by the hotel everyday. The room is clean and tidy. I really enjoyed everyday breakfast. Please share more time in the morning in the breakfast room and enjoy the delicious local cheese, quality food and great deli.

Room Tip: First priority is to choose rooms facing Matterhorn.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Lots of snow making the sort of winter wonderland Aussies can only dream about. The timber decor is incredible. Unfortunately I was unwell and confined to bed for part of my visit. Bummer!! But it gives me the opportunity to say said bed was very cosy, and the crinkly European doona totally comforting. Breakfast was delightful when I finally emerged from my cave, as was the short walk into the village. The taxi drivers at the station square are an endless (free) entertainment.

If you're on a reduced timetable, as I ended up:

Gornergrat by cogwheel railway is a must. Hop off at Riffelberg for a coffee at the cafeteria if the summit is snowed in. Go the whole hog if you're ski-ing back down. You can also admire the ski-ing expertise as people of all ages and sizes zoom past the panorama windows. There's hope for me yet. Also, don't miss the Matterhorn Museum. Check their website for opening hours.

There are plenty of powerpoints for overnight battery charging. My room was thumbnail #6 of the professional photos. The view was over the cemetery, which bothered other reviewers. I liked it. The rear rooms face the Matterhorn.

Room Tip: Rooms onto Kirchstrasse look over the cemetery, so if you spook easily, go for the other side and st...
