“Alpenlodge Zermatt Switzerland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Alpenlodge was a great experience. Even though it is one of the furthest hotels from the downtown area, we enjoyed walking to the slopes, restaurants, and nightlife. It helped burn those extra calories we ingested from the cheese, wine, and bread. The breakfast they provide was delicious. The people working at the hotel, including the owner, could not have been more accommodating. We bought our multi-day, multi-country lift tickets as soon as we checked in. They made us lunch reservations on the mountain, dinner reservations at night. Loved the hospitality. The one thing I wish they had was a hot tub, but the sauna and steam room were relaxing after a day on the slopes. When we go back, Alpenlodge will be on our short list of hotels to consider.

Room Tip: Get a room with views of the Matterhorn. It is an awesome way to wake up everyday!

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.

Only stayed for one night, but the view in the morning was worth it. Had an early train so could see the sun rise behind the Matterhorn. Only downside would be, there was no restaurant and at 20chf taxi into town, it is expensive to get there and back for a meal.

We stayed here for 2 nights in January. The hotel was very clean, nicely decorated, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was very spacious with 2 twin beds and a set of bunks. The complimentary coffee bar was a nice bonus, and the breakfast was fresh and delicious. The only downside was the distance to town. It was easy to walk down (without ski boots), but was easier to hire a taxi for the walk up and when traveling with skis.

Alpenlodge is well managed by its owner 3* hotel. The place is very clean and beautifully designed. We loved The Spa with fantastically organised sauna and relaxing area - our favourite place to chill out after whole day of skiing.
Breakfast offers quality products but is a bit limited. I would add few things there, e.g. porridge.
Room that we had was very nice and clean. Beds were comfortable, shower- hot and powerful.
I really liked how the ski room was organised- easily accessible and clean.

And the most important: fabulous service from Tamara and Rosemary- nothing is a problem, very helpful and kind, always giving us an honest opinion and advice.

We will recommend Alpenlodge to all our friends planning a visit to Zermatt

We stayed for 2 nights during the early part of winter 2012 based on the reviews online.

The views of the Matterhorn and the other mountains (when its not cloudy/foggy) were simply SPECTACULAR. This is especially when we booked the deluxe unit with downstairs living room and upstairs bedroom and floor to ceiling windows.

Getting to town was fun as we sledded (or you can ski) downslope all the way. Coming back up was easy with the eco-friendly electric taxis (costs CHF15 with voucher from the hotel / CHF20 otherwise).

Rosmarie, the owner was a great host and made us feel absolutely comfortable. She let us know the great restaurants in town and kept us informed about the weather (extremely important in winter) and what to do about town.

There was also a nice and simple spa with sauna, massage/yoga room, bath and toilets that guests can use for free during the evening.

Everything was clean, very good condition - couldn't ask for anything more.

Just note that as there are 2-3 ladies working in the hotel, you might have to do most of the heavy hauling of luggage yourself but its not big deal for us.

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hotel to couples, families, skiers and hikers wanting comfort, a clean and well maintained lodging, great views, wonderful service, great value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for the deluxe rooms with living room and upstairs bedroom units, south-facing to view the Matte...

My boyfriend and I just stayed here for a couple nights on a trip throughout Switzerland and Italy. We just loved this hotel. It was very clean, cozy, and the service was wonderful. The staff were always so great and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful too. They have a very cute terrace off the breakfast area with a beatufiul view of the town and the Matterhorn. Our room was basic but the bed was so comfortable. Don't hesitate to book - you won't regret it! Hope to come back someday :)
