We spent a wonderful week at the Hotel Albatros just before Christmas. The friendly and helpful owners, Anette and Yves, and their efficient multi-lingual staff (Andrea and Rosa on Reception and Isabella in the breakfast room) make every stay unique. As has been mentioned by other reviewers, the hotel is just enough out of the way to be quiet but close enough to walk easily to the Klein Matterhorn ski lift, bars, restaurants and shops. In fact, nothing in Zermatt is far,even on the coldest, stormiest days. The hotel is also spotlessly clean everywhere. The wellness room on the lower level boasts showers, sauna and steam room, very nice after a cold day on the mountain. Breakfast selection is varied ( breads, cheeses, cold cuts, cereals, fruit, yogourt etc) and you can order eggs and bacon or whatever you like from the kitchen. You can also order various types of coffee, my favourite being cappuccino. Although tHe hotel does not have a restaurant, the staff and owners will gladly recommend places to eat and make reservations for you. Everything at this hotel is done with a genuine concern for the guest's well being. That is why they have so many guests who return year after year as will we..
