From the moment we arrived at the hotel welschen we were made to feel at home. The hotel is 3 star but in my opinion should be awarded 4 stars. The service given is among some of the best I have experienced. The hotel has a home feel to it and has plenty of character with some quirky edges to it. The setting is perfect as it is set upon a small hill so you have views overlooking the village. Bathrooms in rooms have been recently refurbished so are in very good condition while looking modern. Bedroom although small is extremely comfortable with added extras like a welcome bottle of wine and water left each evening.
Hotel is a 5 minute walk to village and 3 minute walk to the sunnegga underground train.
I have stayed in many 4 star hotels in zermatt however the hotel welschen is now my preferred location and we have already made our booking to return for New Year in December 2013.
We stayed in room 9 which I can recommend as the view of Matterhorn is fantastic and the balcony has great views of the village.
We were travelling with another couple who stayed in room 4 and this was also a very nice room.
This hotel is highly recommended and will not disappoint.
Thank you to all the staff at hotel welschen for making us feel so welcome this last week.
