“Amazing Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

We stayed for two nights at the Backstage,- never been in a Hotel like this before. The Cube Loft was amazing, there was always something new to discover in the room, and the hotel area. Great style, comfortable and in the center of Zermatt. The breakfast was very varied, healthy and well presented.

We stayed there with my wife and our 8 year old daughter for a weekend. Really nicely appointed room and very friendly service. The spa was rather just ok, but came in handy after a day on the slopes. It was expensive at about 450 franks per night, but it's more or less reasonable for this kind of place and the area. Overall I enjoyed the stay, and would recommend it for a nice weekend getaway (but I think it would be more suitable for a romantic weekend for two rather than for a family trip with kids :)

Stayed November 2013, traveled with family

If your like cool architecture then this is the hotel for you. Great rooms, comfortable beds friendly service. Sometimes service can be limited. There is nobody at the desk after 10pm. What happens if you forgot your key? Breakfast was being offered too late one morning being that we were meeting a guide for a hike, they called me on my cell the night before to tell me that the person who prepares the food would be in early for us. Now that's what I call service. The spa is as funky as the rooms. This is not a five star hotel, but many of the luxury hotels I have stayed at could learn a thing or two from this boutique family run property. Job well done!

This hotel is fabulous. My 5.5 year old and I met my husband in Zermatt after he had been out climbing and we stayed at Backstage for 2 nights. We were in a Cube Loft, so our son had his own set of bunk beds and my husband and I had a very comfortable bed to ourselves. The whole experience was fantastic, and I will stay here the next time I get to travel to Zermatt. We were lucky enough to meet Mr Heinz Julen and his beautiful wife and son, along with his parents one afternoon, and they are all lovely people. What a great experience.

We chose the hotel because it looked original, so we are not complaining. But be prepared for very original. We had the "cube" room and though I was happy to have tried it, I probably wouldn't return. One example of a downside: it gets very warm at the bed-level, while the temperature is just good at the ground level. Also the bath tub would not really fill.

On the other hand, I would have returned to their - very original too - spa experience. It's an amusing concept based on the 7-day creation. You discover one station after the other. Some you like, some less so, but it's an interesting discovery all the way. Really fun to do your with your partner. Moreover, we were almost the only ones, so we had a great time.

If you want to experience the work of the same artist in a more classic environment, pick the Focus hotel.

The location is just perfect, in the center of Zermatt. But, you have no view from the room.

Very short walk from train station, 2 minute walk from best view of the Matterhorn. Very funky design. The staff was very welcoming and helpful, the rooms were trendy design, impecably clean, very confortable. The breakfast (you can eat inside or outside) was excellent! Get there!!!
