We stayed at Elite for two nights in mid of June 2016. It is very centrally located and at very short distance from the Zermatt main station, the Gornergrat station and the town main street. It has several eateries around. The Klein Matterhorn station is about 15 min walk away. Mrs Grand is very helpful and speaks good English. They... More

Nice sized, clean room with hot water & great thermostat controls. Staff is very nice & helpful. Has sauna for getting the chill out of your bones & great location in the heart of Zermatt. Just a couple blocks off the main drag is perfect for a quiet nights rest. I'd highly recommend this hotel for a good nights sleep... More

Well you get what you pay. We were looking for a cheap place to stay near Zermatt. And this was the deal we got. Actually given the price it was not that bad. Very old hotel but still justified for the price.

I was quite disappointed at my stay in this hotel. The room furniture id very worn out. Even the bath toweld are old, discoloured snd worn out. I was afraid to use their toweld and I used my own. There was an insect crawling inside the bathroom while I was taking a shower.

The rooms are reasonably priced, but the beds are kind of hard and the bathroom in probably twice the size it needs to be which makes the bedroom a little cramped. Fantastic views from the balcony though.

The Hotel Elite is reasonably close to the station, not far off the main street. It is a position convenient for almost everything in Zermatt. The entrance is a little hidden up a side street next to a 'cowboy bar'. We were worried there would be a lot of noise when we saw the bar but in fact the bedrooms... More

My husband and I stayed here during Christmas vacation and it was picture perfect! The staff were friendly and accommodating. The included breakfast was varied and satisfying, and our room was absolutely perfect and romantic. It had the feeling of a rustic, mountain cabin with all the comfort of a high end hotel. We had a balcony overlooking the village... More
