As soon as we got off the train, we knew we were not in for a good stay. Right off the bat, sooooo many tourists and vehicles. They keep touting Zermatt as a vehicle free place, but there were electric cars everywhere and we almost got run over by one. Unfortunatly we lost our way to the hotel so it was not a fun start.
All in all the hotel was very very nice and the reception was first class. The room was a tad small but the extremely comfortable bed made up for it. Upon arrival, school children were out for recess and it was awfully noisy for well over half an hour, with kids yelling and screaming outside our window. There are 2 schools right behind the hotel.
We found Zermatt so terribly touristy, that we decided to leave after just the one night there. The hotel was kind enough to discount or second nights stay so we did not have to pay full wack for not staying our second night.
We did have a view of the Matterhorn out our side window, which was nice - however all the building cranes in the way did not make for a good photo op.
The breakfast was excellent. Lots of variety and great coffee.
All and all if this hotel had not been in Zermatt, all would have been fantastic.
