A family run hotel in a picture book village. We were picked up by the hotel from the station and delivered back to the station when we left. The suite was very comfortable and large with a balcony giving us a view of the Matterhorn. Breakfast was quite adequate served in an inviting breakfast room. There was a indoor pool,... More

we booked this hotel through makemytrip as it was height of tourist season and we were travelling to zermatt for only one night. i wish we had stayed there atleast for three. Zermatt is a beautiful town, with no fuel cars. The hotel was an icing on the cake, with comfortable room, a surprisingly resplendent swimming pool to dip yourself... More

I have stayed at Hotel Rex on 8 separate occasions over the last 10 years (the last being in June 2016) and can not rate this establishment and the staff highly enough to. This is simply a fantastic hotel! The location is excellent being within walking distance from the train station. The hotel do offer a service to collect you... More

Our write-up called this a bed and breakfast and while technically it may be, it is so much more than that. Wonderful lobby and bar, very comfortable rooms with a balcony, great breakfast including champagne, exceptional staff - and those views of the Matterhorn, wow. Get up 10 minutes before sunrise and have your camera ready for a spectacular photo.... More

This was the best hotel we stayed in during our two months in Europe. The service was second to none, the location is magnificent and the views of the Matterhorn are unbelievable! The room was huge, it was more of an apartment than a room. The pool, spa and sauna are fantastic and the breakfast is that damn good it... More

The location is not near the lifts but is ok for shopping. The concierge is gentle and the spa is very nice. The room had a great view of the Matterhorn but the furniture is a little old. The breakfast was sufficient and the price reasonable.

We had a wonderful week in Zermatt with our kids. The hotel was in a great location. We were picked up by the hotel from the train station and we had two rooms with a fantastic view of the Matterhorn.

Very friendly family run hotel in ideal location close to centre and to lifts. Note it is bed and breakfast only - but very good breakfast, and plenty of restaurants nearby for evening meals. The pool and spa facilities are excellent and a perfect way to loosen up after a hard day skiing. Rooms are large, comfortable, and with good... More
