“Well-run hotel in Zermatt”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2011

I have stayed the Alphubel Hotel in Zermatt 4 times. While it is a 2-star hotel, it is very clean and well run by Bruno Julen and his brother. The restaurant serves breakfast and dinner for hotel guests only. The food is very good. The rooms are clean and well appointed for the price (about Sfr 116 with half board. Its location is very good (off the Bahnhofstrasse) on a quiet cul-de-sac. I would recommend this place for people on vacation or business. Also, the hotel has free wi-fi, which is a plus for me.

Zermatt has got to be one of the most expensive places to get a hotel in Switzerland, so the Alphubel is a breath of fresh air if you don't want to spend 500 CHF a night.

The location is perfect - 5 minutes from the train station and gornergrotbahn, the breakfast has everything you need (cereal, fruit, meat, cheese, bread, eggs, yogurt) and they offer free internet access. It's clean, everyone is friendly and it's nice and quiet.

Had a wonderful stay at the Alphubel in Zermatt. Spent three nights and I felt right at home. The manager was helpful and the staff, was quiet as a mouse! Free internet service, a nice breakfast and a great location just about 200 yards to the train station - which you never hear since it is electric! The bed was a little small, but I am a pretty big guy and a few extra pillows did the trick :^)

This was the second time we stayed at the hotel and we agree with the other reviewers; you will not be able to find better value in Zermatt. It is not a luxury hotel; but centrally located, reasonably prised, very clean and very friendly staff with large (although not stylish any longer) rooms. The food is good and plentiful. Although the menu is fixed, our daughter (who suffers from allergies) was immediately offered alternatives when she said that she was unable to eat something. The hotel shows proper old fashioned hospitality at its very best.

We stayed 3 nights at the Alphubel. It is only 2 minutes up the road from the train station in a side street. The rooms were simple but comfortable. The bathroom (shower room was a bit tight but had all the necessary gadgets. Breakfast was buffet with juices, cereals, cold meat and cheese selection, fresh bread and crossants and joghurts. However what we really enjoyed is the dinner. At breakfast time, the evening menu is displayed and if it takes your fancy you just advise the waitress that you will be eating in. A 4 course meal cost only CHF 29 which is a bargain when you consider that with CHF 29 you may only get a single dish in other restaurants. Moreover, all the veggies were fresh: coming from the hotel's vegetable patch at the back. This menu is available for hotel residents.
All in all the staff were very friendly and helpful. We were even given a lift to the station on our way back.

Ranked as such because as a 2 star hotel in the centre of Zermatt at a very un Zermatt price we all considered it excellent value. Rooms were largish and comfortable if a little dated, food was pretty good - four course fare. We ate out one night,, and got a reduction on our half board price, which was totally unexpected. Bit of a trek to the lifts, but we managed to hire from a shop at the foot of one of the lifts,, and left our skis there, saving a load of hassle. All in all an excellent choice if you are more interested in skiing than style - didn't view the sauna.
