We stayed in Zermatt for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Great location just 10 min walk from the train station, very friendly staff - the owner was very welcoming and helpful. Very nice hotel, delicious breakfast with a good selection of cold cuts, cheese, bread and yogurts. They have a cozy outdoor terrace where you... More

This was one of the best hotels We have stayed in for a very long time. Initialy we were concerned as several reviews stated that there was construction taking place that is obscuring the view of the matterhorn. To our surprise that although the construction was in taking place and a crane was errected for this purpose we found that... More

Our room had a view of the Matterhorn! It was a beautiful sight and we took dozens of photos. We took the train to view the Matterhorn as was suggested to us. The 360 view was awesome. Breakfast at the hotel was good and the owners were very helpful in recommending activities and restaurants. Another lovely car-less city (except for... More

The Hotel Welschen is a fantastic, family owned hotel in the heart of Zermatt. The owner, Christian Welschen is friendly and helpful. The rooms are spotless and the common areas have many wonderful touches. There is a great view of the Matterhorn with the balcony rooms. Breakfast is well done and included with the room price. We would stay here... More

Its been a while since my last visit to Hotel Welschen in Zermatt and the hotel keeps getting better and better. The owners are very helpful and welcoming, giving some very useful tips on the best hiking trails during our stay. The rooms are excellent for the price and it is located very close to the centre of Zermatt with... More

We stayed at Hotel Welschen as a group of six friends for an extended weekend. They picked us up from the station (even if we arrived later than expected, at midnight) and the check in was done in seconds. Rooms are cozy and comfortable, and bathrooms new warm and with full amenities. One of the rooms we booked had a... More

We had a very comfortable three night stay at Hotel Welschen. The owner is a delightful gentleman. The hotel has been his family home since birth and he takes great pride in providing an excellent service. We had Room 9, and had paid extra for a balcony and a Matterhorn View. Only down side was that we could not use... More

As the title says, it is a very nice and cosy hotel. There is a lift to the hotel but it is not noticeable initially. It is near the garage and bike storage area. The hotel is conveniently located above Zermatt - Sunnegga funicular. Makes a good base to explore Zermatt.

Hotel Welschen is about 10mins walk from the main train station with luggage. U need to ascend a gentle upslope to reach the property. Look out on your right hand side for a chance to turn in while walking up. There is a lift that is sort of hidden which will bring you to the reception level, lookout for an... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our HOTEL WELSCHEN is situated at a quiet and sunny location, providing a magnificent view onto the Matterhorn. Even though the hotel was fit to offer modern conveniences, we strived to preserve the homey and rustic nature of the chalet-like building.The Sunnegga Express is only a minute away. And also Gornergratbahn, the bus to Matterhorn glacier paradise – Valley Station, the train station, and the village’s center are in only a few minutes walking distance. In a new outbuilding, we offer a private spa on 95m², which can be booked at a fee for up to 8 persons. As from summer 2014, a lift will take you from the street right to the hotel’s entrance door level. We strive to make your holidays in our hotel a stay as pleasant as possible. Free WIFI is available all over the building. The entire hotel is non-smoking. ... more   less
