“Room with a view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

My husband stayed in the hotel for one week in January 2013, The room was nice and spacious. Good beds. No minibar in the room. Breakfast was very simple continental style, without any extras, the choice of fruits was very poor and not fresh. Staff was friendly but not very interested in their job. Will look for another place next time.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south have the view of the Matterhorn

Stayed here in September....Lovely little rustic hotel. Had a beautiful loft room with three sky lights above the bed and a balcony. Room and bathroom was very clean. Style of the hotel is typical Swiss ski lodge. Staff were friendly, breakfast was fine. Free WiFi in room and use of the hotel wellness center which has a sauna, steam room etc. Would recommend and would also stay here again.

While located along a line of hotels, once in the door, the great ambience of this hotel takes over. Pay a bit extra to have the Matterhorn view. As the weather was warm, we enjoyed walking the streets of Zermatt in shirtsleeves. The bed was comfortable, the room good sized and everything ran perfectly. If back this way again, we'd come back here.

Stayed 2 nights in the hotel. Nice large size rooms. Had a Matterhorn View Room with Balcony on the first floor. View was pretty good but a higher floor would have been better. Service was okay but some staff just did the minimum. No mini bar or air conditioning. Breakfast was simple continental style. Hotel is located about 10 minutes walk from the train station. Internet worked well during the stay. Opposite the hotel is a small cemetery which may be an issue for someone. The town is quite small so everything is close by. We visited Gornergrat by train which was very nice but no snow underfoot. Glaciers on the mountains and Matterhorn could be easily seen. We would recommend this hotel.

I think I will do this review by listing out the positives and then the negative.
The Positives.
1. The hotel is easy to find , and not too far from the station.
2. The reception is friendly.
3. The room are spotlessly clean, with hot water and large rooms compared to european hotel rooms in general
4. It is good value for money.
5. The breakfast is wonderful.

The Negatives.
1. We got there at about two in the afternoon , but were told that we would have to wait for about two hours for the room to be readied ( we'd booked months in advance at the hotel directly by email). When one gets to a hotel after a long journey , one needs to freshen up and not sit around a lobby for two hours.
2. My train was scheduled for 6:13 in the morning and the reception promised to arrange a taxi ( an electric cab of sorts ) to be at my doorstep at 5:45 AM. The taxi never arrived , and we had to half run and half trudge through three inches of snow with our baggage, to make it to the station on time.The reception opens only at 7 in the morning,so the option of ringing up the taxi was absent
3. The email said ' Room with a View'. It was a view alright , but a view of the road outside and NOT of the Matterhorn.
4. I stayed at the Annexe and it was a Saturday night with quite a lot of noise at night from the road outside.

My conclusion ; An OK place, but they are rather inflexible .

This hotel is centrally located less than 400m from the railway station on level ground and better still tye bustop to all the lifts is just outside the back door and very handy.
Its also a very short walk to all the restaurants and bars.
The Antika serves a decent breakfast and the bread is exceptional.
The rooms are quite large, great beds and with modern bathrooms, a balconey and amenities.
Wifi throughout is good.
I would stay again for sure.

Room Tip: Had a great room with open outlook over the cemetary and mountain

Excellent location, easy to find hotel on kirchstrasse, easily marked by the big church. Near the pappardelle pub and a short walk to the sunnegga gondola, or there is a bus stop for the free ski bus down the stairs conveniently located next to the hotel ski room. No restaurant and the breakfast bar is basic but fine. There is a cute little bar beside the reception but you are not allowed to bring drinks to your room. Expensive for a solo traveller but then that is a major ski resort in switzerland in mid february!

Room Tip: All rooms hav a view of the surrounding mountains. The ones to the rear of the hotel are likely to h...
