We booked this hotel at the last minute, and didn't quite know what to expect. Zermatt is very busy during the winter season and it can get tricky to find a room if you don't book in advance - so we just felt lucky to have found a room.
We were pleasantly surprised: the room at the Alpenlodge was bright and nicely furnished, the beds were comfortable and we had a stunning view. What really made us like this place though was the excellent service: the lady at the reception (Tamara) booked us a restaurant for the evening, organised us taxis and also sold us ski tickets so we wouldn't have to queue. She was very pleasant. We also liked the little spa with a sauna and stunning views of the Matterhorn.
Only "negative" point: it is not so close to the city-center, so it's worth to leave your skis back after a day of skiing and return to the hotel by taxi.
