We didn't stay at the hotel but we did enjoy the whole atmosphere of the place. An unusual idea with amazing views. It's a fun place with live music right on the piste. Well worth a visit. Enjoy the experience.

What is better than being able to say you stayed in an igloo for a night? Saying that you stayed in an igloo in the Swiss Alps. There isn't a more charming view than that of the Matterhorn from the iglu-dorf location. This was extremely accessible from the lift locations and train. We were able to ski for the day... More

It's a nice place to visit. We visited last week and the kids loved the igloo experience. The restaurant offers fondue and soup. It's quite cold inside but the food tasted nice and the staff was pleasant. Didn't stay in the hotel but it's quite expensive for a night in igloo and the bathroom/toilet is outside in a container.

This was the part we were most looking forwards to on our trip! It didn't disappoint. We were almost unable to go up, as a warm December meant that they had had trouble completing the complex, and weren't officially open. However after initial disappointment they were able to accomodate us, as long as we understood that. We are extremely grateful... More

We are pretty adventurous and couldn't resist the idea of spending a night in an igloo! Absolutely rip off and a miserable night to boot. The camp is poorly maintained, you could see the tops of the "igloos" exposed where the fake snow had melted off. The smell inside the igloo was terrible, the food atrocious, and the restroom facilities... More

We visited this hotel in April 2015. It was a once in a lifetime thing. We stayed in the romantic igloo at Zermatt for one night. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the moonlit snow covered Matterhorn views at mid night. It can be quite cold up there and the guidelines for packing should be followed. We particularly liked the Hot...

We were there on a fondue evening, and it is a fun and special place, but the arrangement is quite expensive compared to what you get. The guides treats guests almost like a herd of animals and the content of fondue evening was unnecessarily poor. Too bad with a good idea, that it delivers such poor service and it would... More
