“Beautiful Boutique Hotel”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

This is a small boutique hotel right in the centre of Zermatt. It is beautifully decorated and is peaceful and restful, despite its central location. The staff are outstanding and the service is excellent. The hotel is part of the Seiler group and offers a "Dine Around" option, which we really enjoyed, trying Thai, Japanese, Italian and Swiss food. We also tried the fantastic spa facilities at the sister hotel, Mont Cervin Palace. This is a great retreat for a Swiss ski getaway.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a better view of the mountains and make sure to get a room with a balcony.

I stand 5 days for business and for pleasure in this hotel. This hotel is a traditional charming hotel: cozy (and luxurious), conformable and is in an excellent location. I had a junior suite in the 2nd floor with 2 balconies and all windows had view to the Matterhorn. It was incredible to open the windows and have such a great view! The service was very kind and the breakfast buffet was good. I had a great time!

Room Tip: Rooms in the 2nd or 3th floor south side have the best view.

We stayed 4 nights at Monte Rosa in April and loved it. We always try to stay at historical, more personal hotels and Monte Rosa combines historical charm with comfort and service perfectly (which is rare, unfortunately). When returning from the slopes in the afternoon it was wonderful to find tea and homemade cakes in the parlor. To be invited to "appertivo" one evening, with local wine, snacks and an elderly man at the piano, is also the kind of thing you appreciate and remember as a guest. We normally stay at slightly less expensive hotels but Monte Rosa offered discounted prices since it was the end of the winter season, which made our stay excellent value for money!

We (three adults) stayed for two nights. The rooms we had were spacious, nicely decorated and all-around pleasant. The staff was very friendly and helpful from the moment we were picked up at the train station until we left. We were truely impressed with this hospitality and we got this impression from each and every staff member! This place is highly recommended and we are already looking forward to our next trip to Zermatt.

I stayed here some time ago now but wished to review and state how excellent I found the hotel. Rooms very cosy with hot cherry stones in bed ready for you to collapse in. Well appointed bathrooms - again good shower and bath. Breakfast buffet excellent for a day's skiing and dinners were exquisite particularly the gala dinner. Staff and manager (at the time) made us feel very special indeed - manager was a lady with reddy/gingery hair, had great attention to detail. When I was there there were no spa facilities but you could easily go 2 minutes down the road to the sister hotel and use them there. Excellent to ease away any aches or pains.

If I got the chance again, I would come back to this hotel in this amazing ski resort in a flash! I would even consider during summer months. Zermatt is full of delicious restaurants and bars. A really special place.

Thank you for taking the time to share your lovely comments about your last year’s stay with us and I am very pleased that you have enjoyed your vacation at the Monte Rosa. With our little services, we would like our guests to feel spoiled and the cherry stone cushions are a much appreciated tradition here in the house. I’m delighted that you felt it the same way.

I do hope that we have the pleasure in welcoming you back to the Monte Rosa in the near future; by the way, summer is beautiful, too!

Where do I begin?
Room - Matterhorn view & Church view, sprawling..old yet amazingly new decor. Even the jaccuzzi bathroom (yes it worked) had a matterhorn view.

The housekeeping had an amazing attention to detail with replacing more of what one used.
The breakfast - The best in our entire trip was made of the usual and also home made yogurt & cheese. Royal in true style. Dont let the front facade fool you.

Each staff was extremely nice and I wont take names incase I forget some. MUST STAY !

We stayed at this wonderful historic hotel at the start of this summer season (16th June '12) for a week. On arrival we were unexpectedly upgraded to adjoining suites ( when we had just booked superior rooms). We were accompanied by my 91 year old mother, so the central location was ideal.

We had a superb week and all the staff were so attentive and accommodating to our every need. The food in the restaurant was exquisite, and portion sizes just right.

We will definitely return, and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone who likes that little bit of extra luxury and service from a hotel.
