After a journey with the Glaciers Express from St. Moritz to Zermatt we stayed for one night in this beautiful hotel. We received a room with a balcony with direct view to the Matterhorn. We have a excellent diner and we recommend the “ filet Medici “. The personal was absolutely pleasant.

Cosy hotel, friendly & helpful staff, very clean, new and well maintained. Junior suite for 3 is also spacious enough for 4 due to the uncluttered, clean-lined furniture they have. A stone's throw from the railway station, eateries, Zermatt Museum & old village.

My room looked out over the town and had a balcony where you could watch the people walking by but was quite sound proof when the door was closed. This room had a refrigerator which I have not always found in mid range hotels in the UK and not in the only other hotel I experienced in Switzerland. The young... More

It is situated beside the River, next to the old part of Zermatt village, and only a five minute walk from the main tourist centre. There are excellent views... More

We went as a family of four and were given a beautiful suite of two modern rooms and a very large bathroom with a wonderful view of the Matterhorn. This would have been the best hotel experience ever if it weren't for the VERY STRONG presence of smoke in the room from the bar on the floor below us. We... More

We like this hotel very much except a little pricey. 1. Modern rooms with balcony facing Mount Matterhorn. 2. Free breakfast with good quality food. 3. Free wi-fi. 4. Train station pick up and drop off. 5. Central location in town.
