Reviewed November 23, 2010

We were in Zermatt for one night only, and glad we stayed at this hotel.

We did some research online on the cheapest rate they offer before we arrived, so we had a figure in mind when we walked in asking for a room. Initial quote from their staff was CHF100 more than that figure so we mentioned the website and the price we saw, and they duly matched (saving us CHF100!). So, it's really worth doing your research and bargaining if needed. Note though that we went there during the quieter season in mid-week.

Like many other reviewers, we were "upgraded" to a room with a view of the Matterhorn. The weather was horrible on the day we arrived, so I thought nothing of this upgrade (as we couldn't even see past buildings a few blocks from us), but when we woke up the next morning where the sky was clear, the view of the Matterhorn was quite stunning.

Hotel's location is good - only a few minutes walk from the train station (complimentary taxi if you're feeling lazy) - but it's away from the main street and it's quiet. The room is very clean, and warm (important for Zermatt!). Contemporary simple design. Free wi-fi in room. Great bathroom facilities. Breakfast was decent - good food and nice restaurant area. Staff were friendly. Spa and massage center if you fancy, but we didn't try.

There was one small incident that made the stay not 100% perfect. The staff told us they serve free cakes and drinks everyday at 3pm for the guests, so we went down after checking in to the room for a little bit of refreshment. However when the drinks arrived the waitress said it's only the cakes that are free not the drinks, and asked us to pay. We declined, as we even double checked with the staff who initially told us about this, but the waitress was still very polite and took the drinks away without fuss. We just thought, for the money we're paying, they shouldn't insist on charging for a little hot drink like that, even if it was a case of "lots in translation".

Overall, however, I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

We arrived mid week when it wasn't busy, and got upgraded to room 403 with a view of the Matterhorn. We enjoyed 2 clear days, and the view was simply awesome -- see it to believe it. The rest of our Swiss vacation was dull after the Zermatt experience.
Hotel offered complimentary pickup/drop from the nearby rail station. All places of interest in Zermatt were within walking distance. Nice spa for relaxation at the end of a tiring day. Everyone at the hotel were extremely nice and helpful. Even the chauffer was so nice.
Nothing much to say negative, except a male waiter who served us a completed charred fried egg at breakfast. He is one person who needs more traininng. The overall experience was excellent, in spite of this small waiter related incident.
Strongly recommend Hotel Mirabeau

Stayed at the Hotel Mirabeau for two nights, and there is nothing I would change about this place: great view of the Matterhorn, extensive breakfast, surprisingly gourmet dinner, and we slept like babies on their comfortable bed with no sound at all from the other rooms. We tried their water treatments room in the basement which was fun, and were very appreciative of all the help the staff provided with our questions on skiing, rentals, hiking, other restaurants in the area, etc. Lovely stay!

Great staff and modern, super comfortable accommodations. We spent three nights in a junior suite with great sunlight and the Matterhorn overlooking our balcony (room 802!). The spa, swimming pool and refuge was great after a long day skiing on the glacier. Good location near the train terminal and main street with shops and restaurants. Easy hop and short ride on the bus or tuk tuk cab to the ski lift. Highly recommend the Mirabeau for a perfect stay in Zermatt.

We could not have picked a more accomodating place to stay. The management went beyond the call of duty in helping with anything we needed. They went so far as to help us find sheep skins to buy and take home! That is beyond the call of duty in my book!!
Our room was wonderful. Our balcony looked up at the Matterhorn. The beds were very comfy and the food was excellent.
If u r going to Zermatt look no further than Mirbeau Hotel.
P.S. They will pick u up at the train station :-)

We enjoyed our stay at the Mirabeau from start to finish. On arrival at Zermatt station, we phoned the hotel, who sent their electric car to collect us and our luggage. It was a short drive to the hotel, which is a 5 minute walk from the Bahnhof Platz and all that is going on in Zermatt. On check in, we were given a guided tour of the hotel and luggage arrived at the room by porter. Our room was spacious with a sunny balcony and a magnificent view of the Matterhorn. The 2 comfortable chairs and table meant we could sit out in the sun and enjoy the really fresh air and wonderful scenery of Zermatt. Our room had 2 extra wide single beds which were most comfortable, if a little soft, but with support. Two enormous easy chairs, one almost a couch, made this the most comfortable hotel room we have used for a long time. Lots of desk space too. Spacious bathroom with tub & shower over, lots of space to lay out our personal toiletries and plenty of towels. Everything worked. The staff were as nice as the accommodations. Always smiling, friendly and happy to help. Breakfast was a feast, with hot and cold food on the buffet. We ate dinner in the hotel only once and it was a sophisticated, well prepared and beautifully presented 5 courses. The wine list is extensive but, like most of Switzerland, the wines are not cheap. We found a Swiss Pinotage on the list and wondered how this originally South African wine would taste, having been grown in Switzerland. It was excellent. We would stay at the Mirabeau again and without hesitation would recommend it to friends. Only one point to mention is that beauty treatments should be booked in advance of arrival as the salon is so busy.
