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. I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened the balcony door! The room was very clean, had a nice in room shower/toilet/sink, and the hotel was... More

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

Stayed here as part of a tour package and was very impressed. The hotel is a ways away from the train station in Zermatt, so it was a bit of a walk. However, the hotel came and took our luggage for us in the "taxi" (electric golf cart since no cars in Zermatt). The hotel is a traditional Swiss style... More

I stayed at this hotel during the first week of March 2014 together with friends (we booked three double rooms including half-board) for our annual skiing holiday. Conveniently located, within 10-minutes’ walk to the ski bus, as well as close to the centre - for those enjoying shopping and après-ski activities! It is a quiet, “no frills” family-run hotel that... More

Good value for money. Our triple room at the top floor on the southside of the hotel (which provides Matterhorn view) had stairs leading to a separate area, with sofa and bed for one; that makes our child very happy in having his private space above our heads. Good breakfast and dinner, spacious bathroom, nice view from the balcony. Quiet,... More

A quiet family run hotel which we found to be friendly and well situated for both the skier and non-skier! Our Matterhorn view was wonderful to wake up to each morning. Breakfast and the two evening meals we had were excellent. As it was Christmas during our stay the basket of nuts and chocolates were well appreciated. The transfer to... More
