The location of this charming small 3 star hotel is ideal, perfectly situated on the hill overwatching the Zermatt valley, nice spot to be on NYE if we are not keen to be sprayed by beer at midnight. We had a suite with a large balcony overlooking the Matterhorn. The furniture and the very large bathroom are outdated and plain but everything else makes up for that bit. You can ski down to the hotel if you plan your ski day appropriately. Warm fireplace and a nice spa retreat await after a day of skiing. (Note to my fellow North Americans: the etiquette in most spas Europe is to go in the nude. You are more likely to be stared at if you are in a bikini!) Ski room is warm and allows you to leave all the gear behind to be dry for the next day. You can even ask for urgent repairs to be carried out by an outside service and all will be in oder by the time you've had breakfast. The guide books in the room are very informative, as are the lovely ladies at the front desk. Make sure you arrive early enough (before 9PM I believe) to have the hotel pick you up from the train station. Otherwise, arrange for a taxi beforehand, makes life an awful lot easier (and warmer!). Enjoy, you will not be disappointed.
