The bathroom was modern and clean. The location was perfect to everything that Zermatt has to offer. Breakfast was good, but what makes this hotel so lovely is... More

We had a wonderful time staying at Hotel Parnass. It is perfectly located in the heart of Zermatt being close to the train station and anything else that one would like to reach. It has a beautiful, unobstructed view of the Matternhorn. The rooms are spacious and excellently furnished. The bathrooms are particularly lovely. The staff are kind and friendly... More

I think you could best describe this hotel as "boutique", and it is a beauty. If arriving by train (how else to arrive in Zermatt?) walk to the street, turn right and then take the first proper street on the left which crosses the river. Hotel Parnass is the first building you see on your left after you cross the... More

The Hotel Parnass is in the perfect location for viewing the Matterhorn if you get a south facing room. Close to the train station and all amenities, with the ski buses stopping across the road the hotel is ideal accommodation in Zermatt. The restaurant is excellent and offers a reasonably priced meal. The owner and staff are wonderfully welcoming and... More

I stayed one night in April to meet up with friends who were visiting from the US. Even though I've lived in Switzerland for 12 years, this was my first visit to Zermatt. What a treat to have a room with a balcony offering a perfect view of the Matterhorn! The room and bathroom were very spacious and clean and... More

Zermatt is our favorite skiing destination – where else can you take a funicular, cog railway, cable car and gondola to the top of the mountain for the price of a ski ticket of $79? - the Hotel Parnass is our favorite Hotel in Zermatt.

Zermatt alone is magical. We stayed here for 6 nights 7 days. 3 days of skiing and 4 days of leisure. We stayed in a regular room for our 1st 3nights. It was small, no door that separates the room from the bathroom but both were very clean. Bathroom is modern and room is very cozy with a Swiss touch.... More

This is the first time I visit Zermatt, suggested by my colleague while I was travelling in Europe and have a weekend to be spend. Since I don't have much budget nor big plan to do something here, so I picked up a relatively cheaper but have good name's hotel listed in Tripadvisor/Booking.com. When I arrived and reviewed some trip... More
