My husband and I have been going to Zermatt for the past 18 years. Almost every time we have stayed at the Alpenhof.The hotel can best be described as "elegant chalet" I think. Once we stayed at the Grand Hotel Zermatterhoff but I found that hotel to be a bit soulless.One of the chief selling points of the Alpenhof is the excellent food in the restaurant. A 5 course dinner is included in the price as well as an extensive breakfast. You are an easy walk to the main street and the Sunnegga/Rothorn train is a 2 minute walk in the morning. Yes, I am definitely tempted to stay in one of the sexy new hotels that have been built, but they don't offer dinner and that is important to me. The hotel has wonderful service from all the employees and lovely ambiance. That, along with the exceptional food, keep us going back year after year.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The family run Hotel Alpenhof lies in the center of Zermatt in a sunny, quiet location. The cable car Sunnegga, which access the ski slopes and hiking area, is directly across from the hotel and the train station and Gornergrat railway are just 5 minutes' walk away. The 5 floor Hotel Alpenhof offers 62 comfortable rooms, most of which have their own balcony. The rooms are equipped with bath/WC, minibar, telephone, radio, Wi-Fi, cable TV, safe and a cozy seating area. Look forward to the naturally lit, Alpenhof SPA area on the first floor. The new, stylishly renovated hotel lobby offers plenty of space to relax and enjoy regional snacks and wine specialties. We pamper our hotel guests every day with a new and freshly prepared 5-course selection menu. A special highlight is the exquisite cheese buffet. Our refined Cigar Lounge, one of a kind in Zermatt, offers fine digestives, smoky whiskys and a solid selection of cigars. Sitting in front of a roaring fire listening to our pianist is the perfect way to end a day's hiking or skiing. Every Wednesday during the high season the family run business offers you a free visit to their herd of black nose sheep. ... more less
