“Excellent hotel throughout”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

I am a frequent traveller and have stayed in many hotels - Hotel Christiania exceeded my expectations. The hotel has an excellent location close to lifts and trains but still tranquil overlooking the Matterhorn from our room but also from the large terrace. The public areas and restaurant are warm and friendly in chalet style and the room was large and fully equiped with everything you expect in a luxury hotel and spotlessly clean. The food was superb, the breakfast impressive and the staff.....well they couldn't do enough for you. Every single member of staff was professional but friendly and so helpful. The pool is larger than expected. This should be classified as a de luxe hotel. My expectations were exceeded which is not often and I can only congratulate the owners and their staff for the superb way in which they run this fine hotel. Thank you so much for a lovely stay - we will be back.

Room Tip: I can recommend a room with view over the Matterhorn - it is magic

this was among the best hotels during our stay in switzerland.

the best part was the pool (25m long, supposedly the longest in zermatt), and good jacuzzi. however, spa/sauna was a designated nude area......not sure what purpose it served....certainly was a disappointment.

internet was free and this made up for the lack of english entertainment channels.

location was bit off the main area and needed some commuting, but also gave a better view. good part was that they offered free pick-up and drop from/to the station and that was a big +.

reception was average as though they were helpful, they did not provide info in as much detail as we got from Stella, the hotel we stayed at in Interlaken.

room and bathroom was very comfortable and housekeeping was also good.

Room Tip: we had the option of choosing room with Matterhorne view, but we didnt go for it and in hindsight th...

Booked the hotel for the pool and spa area, but was pleasantly surprised to find a very swiss chalet style hotel. The hotel staff was great from the start and very helpful. They walk you to your room and explain the hotel and amenities along the way. The pool and spa area were one of the best I have seen in a hotel anywhere in Europe, however runs very odd hours and closes early. The rooms were clean, but seem a bit dated. Although the rooms seem dated the feel was very much a swiss chalet so I didn't mind the older style. Bathroom was clean and updated with more recent amenities. The View was fantastic of the matterhorn and I was pleased with the advertised promise of a matterhorn view. Overall the hotel was great and I would stay again!

This hotel has excellent view from everywhere, service is above expectation, spa is superb. We couldn't find any problem with this hotel. It should be 5 stars. The room is big, beautiful and extra clean.

We had a very nice stay at Hotel Christiana. There are several different room types and views so book carefully if you want a good view of the Matterhorn. We had room 401 a Superior room. Great view from balcony which was nice to sit on and enjoy the view of town and The Matterhorn. The room was large and comfortable, clean but a little dated. It was a bit darker in the room than I prefer even with the doors to the balcony. I saw some other rooms that looked brighter. The bathroom looked brand new, granite double sinks, tub shower combo, spotless. It is a 10 minute uphill walk from the train station and center of town. They do have a shuttle that will pick you up with your luggage from the train terminal, just call them from the courtesy phone at the station. The staff was very accommodating, and friendly. We did not use any of the pool or spa areas but they looked very nice. We would stay here again and reccomend to friends.

Nice clean and well appointed rooms. Really nice hotel with pristine pool and spa. It snowed while we were there, so I actually skied through the little roads to the hotel at the end of the day.

But here is my story that put it over the top: not only did they meet us at end of the last day at the train station with our bags (so we could ski the entire day and not have to go back to the hotel), but at the train station the guy gave handed me a little white envelope. Inside was my key ring that apparently I left in my hotel room or in the hotel restaurant that morning. WOW! That is great service. I am not sure if they realize how much of a hassle this saved me, but they have a customer for life.
