Stayed in this hotel after climbed Mont Blac in Chamonix. Relaxed in the spa and I reined all my energy.

Pros
Quiet, clean room. Perfect location to enjoy the view of Matterhorn. Spa is huge and wonderful. Breakfast is also nice. Everything what I needed was here!!

Cons
not found any spots.

While visiting northern Italy in September, we chose to spend a few days in Zermatt, Switzerland
since it was close and our traveling companions thought we would enjoy the unique aspects
of the town. The Christiania was chosen since in a good location, and had rooms with direct
Matterhorn views. The hotel turned out to be a very nice place to stay, with spacious rooms,
views as advertised and good amenities. The pool area and exercise room were very adequate.
We did not use the spa. The staff were extremely helpful, and our exhausting requests for help
with restaurant reservations and hiking trail info were met with courteous, prompt assistance.
The owner, and her sons, are on top of all details in the operation. We did not dine in the
restaurant except for the very extensive breakfasts which were included in the rate, and they
were first rate.
The hotel's location is convenient to the central shopping area and tram station for the
upper slopes and hiking trails. Zermatt is obviously a tourist target, given the volume of
tourist traffic in the in-between season when we were there. The lack of vehicular traffic
and crisp, cool but not unpleasant temps in September made it a good time to see the area.
We would definitely return to the Christiania if revisiting Zermatt.

Room Tip: Those with a Matterhorn view are the most desirable.

Decided to go to Zermatt after watching the batchelor on tv late in Australia!! Well my husband and I loved the hotel!! We had a beautiful room with a view of the Matterhorn and enjoyed the pool and spa area!! We had robes and slippers so as not to wet our clothes and sitting in the spa at the end of a busy day seeing this glorious town was just what we needed! The staff were wonderful and we were treated like royalty. We took a summer special and had lovely breakfasts and a dinner included in our 2 night stay and were picked up at the railway and returned at the end... Which we didn't want to end. Thankyou to all the staff and owners for our wonderful experience at your hotel and hopefully get back again someday!!

I stayed in room 404 one of the cheaper rooms in the roof area. Room is not as good as the more spacious Matterhorn view ones with flat screen TV that I stayed in last time. This one is smaller still enough room for a double bed but older CRT 20 inch TV. Only a few UK channels but still good free WIFI. Rooms are kept very clean. The service from the staff has been very good too. The waiter guy is good at his job very smartly dressed and has a good professional attitude. Yet again the swimming pool and SPA area is what makes this hotel special. The free tennis court outside, the free mini golf on the swimming pool roof and the free billiard/pool table overlooking the pool. A small gym area next to the billard room. The beds are comfortable and I have no problems sleeping. No excessive noise from other guests. A small ski room perhaps not big enough to handle high season but not been to see that. It seems about half full. Breakfast is good buffet style help yourself. Cooked breakfast I like the scrambled eggs. Plenty of variety, selections of bread types, jams, a good expresso/latte coffee machine, chopped fresh fruit, various yogurts and types of cheese and cold sliced meats. I'd recommend this hotel and would visit again.

A hotel staff member was very rude to us. Early in the morning, we were locking the door when he suddenly appeared from nowhere and told us to be quiet. We were not making any noise to disturb the other guests. Also, when one of our tour memberes was to leave the room, he suddenly entered the room and switched off the lights. Why could he enter the guest room without any permission. We told him he was too rude to the guests and should apologize to us. However, he pretended not to understand any English and didn't say 'Sorry'to us. Why could he be hired without speaking any English, I wonder. The hotel manager should train him to be more disciplined. Although the other staff members were very kind to us, the hotel gave us the bad impression because of him.
