It was not enough for 3 adults and 1 baby, but I liked the hostel like atmosphere. Name is hotel but it's closer to hostel since no breakfast, room service is available. Shower room was nice and there is a kitchen in the basement. And it's very close to Coop and train stations. If you are not with more than... More

I'd like to start off stating that the hotel was located in a beautiful place, but the hotel itself wasn't as lovely as where it is located. Firstly, the hotel doesn't cost what they are asking you to pay. I paid 200 euro per night for a hotel that has a receptionist that only works during specific hours. I've been... More

We arrived at the hotel around 4pm and were greeted by a very friendly receptionist. Upon trying to check in it turned out we had arrived a day early! We were on a three week whirlwind trip, but thanks to the lovely lady at reception she made a few adjustments and got us the same room for the two nights.... More

This is probably the best budget option there is in Zermatt. I was a solo traveler so I did not mind staying in a dorm (top floor). The dorm room has several beds which are in little nooks. The dorm beds each have their own light and electrical outlet. It is quite a trip up to the top floor so... More

If you're looking to do Zermatt on a budget (which is otherwise impossible), can handle no frills and want to meet up with some great people (all ages, all nationalities) then this is your place. Literally steps away from the railway station, Gornergrat station and eBus stop; less than 10 minute walk in ski boots to the Sunegga station. Speaking... More

Location Adjacent to the main station and mountain railway and to a ski bus stop. Shops, including Migros and Co-Op supermarkets are a few minutes walk away.

Amazingly well-equipped kitchen and common/living area. Everything sparkling crispy clean - not like a hostel and puts the other three low budget places in town to shame. I've stayed in double, single and dormitory rooms over the last ten years and they all are great value. The staff are very helpful. The clientele can be mixed - usually it's good... More

Good location at the start of town, and across from the train station. Is a nice hotel, the best feature was the large and well appointed kitchen. We were very excited to be able to cook a nice meal, and a large grocery store is only blocks away. The dining area was very cozy. Even had an latte machine for... More

The hotel is just near the train station ( that's why called Bahnhof- means train station in german). And that's really good thing because you cannot move with a car in Zermatt, you have to use expensive taxi or walk. The only way of reaching Zermatt is with train. Zermatt is really expensive resort, like one of the most expensive... More

Because I'm afraid it will get full next time I visit! Being next to the train station ( I counted with hundred of steps), it's unbeatable for us since my mum took a big luggage for her first European trip. Rooms were clean, we didn't have a chance to get a private room but we had no problem at all... More
