Convenient for the station, Hotel Helvetia is also well situated for hikers and climbers, close to the path to Trift and the Rothorn hut. Clean and very good value and an excellent breakfast to set you up for your hike. Expect some noise at night from the bars if you have a room at the front of the hotel but... More

This place sucked! They advertise free wifi but they dont tell you you gave to be on the first floor... in itself not a big deal but everything about this place was terrible. This place wreaked of a cheap skate immigrant family that was purely trying to get as much from you for as little as possible. Obviously the cleaning... More

I am the "cheap skate immigrant family".... Yes, the wife of the restaurant tender is thai, for me as a open minded Swiss no problem. I look for the hotel since 7 years, and yes I save money - for my guests! In Switzerland everything is expensiv, so are the hotels. Our hotel is situated in one of the best... More

This hotel is right off the main street. We were on the top floor, room 15, so we had a view from our room. The bedroom and bathroom was very large. The bed was comfortable. As others have stated, there was no elevator. Trekking to the top floor wasn't difficult for us, but if you have trouble with stairs, it... More

The room is just nice for a solo traveller, clean and neat. It's quite near the train station. The single room overlooks the main street and it's not exactly quiet at night. The breakfast spread was quite good and sufficient for me. I would go back there again if I'm travelling alone!

We stayed here for one night on our way to other accommodation, because it was cheap (ish). Pros: It was centrally located. It was clean and comfortable enough (for one night). The balcony gave access to a nice view and fresh air. The breakfast was a good continental spread! It was sort of cheap. Cons: The room was tiny and... More

Tiny room but everything you need. Very clean. Owner is a delight. Great breakfast included. Go up stairs above restaurant to find instructions to room. They will see you at breakfast. Easy walk from train station which was a fabulous trip. Chalets and skiers every where. The church bells ring at 7:55 for five minutes; nice but wasn't sure what... More

This isn't a smart or luxury hotel, but it is very good value in this expensive town. Rooms overlooking the street likely to be noisy. Didn't eat in the restaurant ,(plenty of options nearby), but breakfast OK. Having just hiked from Chamonix via huts etc it provided all we needed in terms of comfort. I'd stay again.

We stayed here at the end of our Haute Route, so to be honest, any room would have felt like a palace at that stage! Check in was quick and there was a toblerone left on each pillow in the room. The room was OK, it had a view of the side yard but large french doors to let the... More

I stayed at this hotel over Christmas 2013. It was located on a main street near shops and restaurants. The room served it's purpose, and was clean and comfortable. We had a great view of the mountains and town out our window. The building was classic for Switzerland. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel. We ate there one... More

Here's the scoop on this little gem: It isn't the best hotel in Zermatt, and might be on the lower end for quality, but for the price you pay, it is perfect. You are never in your room anyway. I am 54 years old. If you are 65+ you probably should find another spot. Free breakfast, Boom. The rooms are... More
