Our family of seven booked this hotel well in advance not knowing anything about it beyond what was given in the reviews. It exceeded our expectations. We had two large rooms and two smaller ones and all had a magnificent view of the Matterhorn. Mr. Julen, the owner, was helpful and friendly and took us to the train in his... More

The offer of the hotel is convenient for families or people who don't want to spend a fortune in Zermatt. The rooms are nice and of good size. The breakfast could be improved a lot and what a disappointment when you see artificial honey and industrial marmelade instead of good, locally produced products ! But this is unfortunately quite often... More

Good value, great views, good breakfast and service. If you are looking for luxury this won't be the hotel for you, but if you are looking for clean, comfortable and good value in Zermatt then I can throughly recommend the Capricorn.

I am giving this hotel a poor rating, in spite of the fact that everyone in the hotel besides the owner did a good job, and made me feel welcome. The owner is often the receptionist. I felt he had to force himself to speak to me, even though he answered all my questions. The daughter, sister in law and... More

We were three guests and had a room over two floors with two double beds. Everything was very clean and we felt comfortable in our cozy room. Had the weather been better, we would've looked straight out onto the matterhorn. The owner (I think?) was very friendly and the breakfast buffet perfect with fresh fruit and good bread. It's a...

Stayed for 2 nights and had a room with a view to the Matterhorn . Room was clean and adequate, only minus was the bed was a bit short. Breakfast was good with a hot and cold selection. The hotel doesn't offer pick up from station for guests staying less than 3 nights. This was rather inconvenient.

Hotel Capricorn is a great value considering how expensive Switzerland & Zermatt are. I had a single room on the corner top floor with an incredible view of the Matterhorn straight from my balcony.

We were in the hotel as group for skiing. Location is about 10 mins walking distance to main station and same as to Zermatt Bergbahnen. But it is better to take taxi while going to and coming back from skiing or main station. Rooms were different. We stayed in three different rooms. One was huge nearby the elevator, other room...

We stayed in this hotel for one night. The walk from the train station to the hotel was very long especially if you are carrying your own backpacks (possibly 15-20 minutes), but I did appreciate the quieter surroundings of the hotel once we arrived. Knowing that we would be going up to Schwarzsee Hotel for the next 2 nights, I... More
