I booked the cheapest room I could and knew I wouldn't get a Matterhorn view, but the upside was an enormous room and a pleasant balcony. Breakfast was good, location is convenient and everything works well with this hotel. It's great value, for Zermatt..

Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is perfect. Outstanding sleep comfort. WIFI in the room. Look at the Matterhorn in the early morning and watch the golden peak in the sunlight! Location quite central, 5 minutes from the restaurent-aerea.

Hotel Dufour is a friendly place owned by a typic swiss german family. It's a cosy place to stay in Zermatt and it's well located. The breakfast was delicious with a lot of choice and organics too. After a day of ski you can relax at the wonderful spa of Parkhotel Beau-Site (5*). Great place if you like simple but... More

First time we booked Chalet Dufour in 2012 in the very last minute before our arrival to Zermatt and were very much surprised with warm and truly welcoming atmosphere, very attentive staff, spacious and very comfortable room, nice breakfasts - we could not even imagine to find all these in 2* hotel. This year Chalet Dufour (already with 3*) appeared... More

We stayed in Room 3, with a balcony facing Matterhorn (!) in July 2015 and is now planning next summer trip back to Zermatt, and stay again in this hotel! The breakfast was sumptuous and yummy and the free use of swimming pool in BeauSite Hotel gave us a good break after the morning hiking.
