Hotel Firefly
Ranked #3 of 110 Hotels in Zermatt
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 24, 2012

We stayed at the Firefly in Zermatt in the second weekend of July and it was a real treat!
The suites are very uniquely designed, with different themes, I asked for the theme "water" because my husband loves the blue color, and we got what we asked for, the suite was as great as the pictures on their website, and the view of Zermatt was even more beautiful than what we thought.

The hotel is strategically located in the heart of Zermatt, very close to the cable cars stop, and to many wonderful restaurants and shops.

The Nespresso machine in the room, and the complementary fruit basket as well as the wide range of DVDs available for guests were a really nice addition... we could go hiking in the morning and then come back and relax in our big bed watching a film that we selected from their DVD selection on this huge LCD screen!

And one last thing, the hotel does not have a restaurant, but do not let that discourage you because when I asked for an in-room dinner to be arranged the super friendly staff offered to arrange for a delivery of whatever we choose directly to our suite! we ended up enjoying the Matterhorn view and dining out, but the staff reaction made us feel that they are ready to make anything to make sure that their guests are satisfied.

The breakfast is served to your suite based on the selection you make the night before, very fresh and amazingly tasty.

It is definitely a great hotel and we will be coming back :)

Room Tip: Suites are themed with quite strong designs, so make sure to check the different designs on the webs...

Just brilliant! We have just returned from 4-days in Zermatt staying at this wonderful hotel. We were upgraded to a suite that was huge. The decor was contemporary with a traditional Swiss twist, which worked really well. Everything was high spec, the only thing I would say was that the Tempur mattress was not to my husband's taste. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble.
The gym was excellent and spa facilities perfect. The bar 55 is very cool. We borrowed mountain bikes for a day, skied on the glacier one morning and just generally ate lots and chilled out. Bliss. Would love to be able to return during the winter season should the pound/Franc exchange rate ever improve!
Very highly recommended.

Greeted with a glass of French Champagne by the adoreable front desk hostess.. Upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment! Beautiful decor, tastefully done. Perfect location. Matterhorn viewed from 3 windows. Friendly and welcoming father of the owner who made our trip memorable in the first hours. Need I say more? I've been here less than a day and I took the time to write this review. We are extending our stay!

What a wonderful hotel. We have had a great time, big luxerious rooms, outstanding cosy flair and a phenomenal breakfast delivered to the room.
The spa and sauna is the best I have ever enjoyed and on top of that Maria and Micky, the owners are a couple you like to meet again.
Thanks for a great stay and a wonderful time in Zermatt

We had forgotten a small vanity case after departing and even before arriving home and having noticed, we had an email asking where we wanted to have it sent free of charge!!!
The Firefly hotel is by far the best hotel i´ve been to and i´ve travel a lot!
The handwritten welcome note by the family who owns the place makes the stay start with warmth and a feeling of personal attention. All the staff is very friendly and helpful. The cool atmosphere makes you feel very relaxed and pampered. The elevator has lights that change in every floor, the gym is great and the spa has two different steam baths, a great sauna with music and a place for ice therapy. Even the two showers are special. And the swimming pool with an aluminium floor instead of tiles is fantastic, also with changing colors that made me feel like swimming in heaven. The roof works as a mirror making the space seem huge. I loved seeing myself while swimming looking upwards. Last but not least, having a kitchen in the suite allowed us to prepare some snacks and dinners. And in the mornings having breakfast brought to the room gave us more time to enjoy a second honeymoon to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Can´t wait to be back to celebrate my 50th bday along with family and friends next time.

Room Tip: it all depends on the number of people in the group. For a couple, suite Water on the 4th floor is p...

What a wonderful hotel with such funky owners! We had a great time, big luxurious rooms compared to the poky others we have experienced in Zermatt. The spa must rate as one of the best for a small boutique hotel with superb finishes and style. The breakfast delivered to the room every morning is great touch many should follow. The bar is spunky with some really good cured meats served with the drinks. Beds, linen and toiletries very good. Beyond expectation!
