“A great little find in a awesome town”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Zermatt is one of those towns that you have to see to believe.
We stayed here to kick off our Glacier Express journey and this little gem did not disappoint.
A well appointed if not a little dated the bathrooms have been done up but that's it at the moment. Quite Clean and Comfortable at an affordable price in a very expensive country.

The staff was so friendly and our room was very comfy. The location was perfect and my friend and I discovered that we actually loved the cold 'porridge.' I was thrilled to be back in Switzerland and the clear view of the Matterhorn from the roof deck was amazing. The desk staff even told us that they'd make us a box lunch if we needed it. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Zermatt!

Room Tip: Take a tip from the name of the hotel - it is small and not many rooms so reserve it early.

The hotel is just as described. The front desk is very helpful and the breakfast is great. The rooms are small but clean and cosy. People looking for a cheap alternative this is Perfect for an expensive zermatt. The main cathedral is just 2 mins away and the Matterhorn gondola is 10 mins by walk. Train station is also just 7 min by walk. The city is car free so travel by walking is preferred. One with less luggage can walk to and fro the station comfortably. Pie ould recommend it highly.

I liked this hotel. The room was very good, very very clean, the breakfast was delicious. Simple but a good healthy choice of food.
The host, whose name I didn't get was very helpful to everyone.
Zermatt is not cheap but this new hotel is good value for money and I recommend it .
Mind you the lift is good for two people only, plus baggage.

Room Tip: The river side can be noisy. Try the other side if it affects your sleep.

This hotel is real value for money. Very clean easily accessible as it is close to the railway station and also in the centre of the city. The rooms will be on the smaller side, as expected but it's really comfortable and cosy. The bathrooms are great and the staff is excellent. Breakfast is included with the room and is served in the morning right next to the reception is a small dining area. The hotel also has a roof section on the 5th floor which is good for a quick view of the city and the Matterhorn or for relaxing for a while. Overall, a great experience at this hotel. I would highly recommend for travellers on a budget.

We stayed here on our recent stay in Zermatt. A bit of a walk from the station lugging our cases through the drizzle and snow but nice accommodation once we arrived. Cosy clean and affordable with incredible views of the Matterhorn from the roof terrace once the weather cleared. Breakfast was ample and served in a warm and welcoming dining room. Shame there wasn't tea and coffee making facilities in the room.

Room Tip: If you have a lot of luggage or weather is bad it may be worth using one of the electric taxi buggie...

We stayed at the hotel for a night for our trip to Matterhorn. The hotel was a bit hard to find since there was no clear sign (we walked follow the Google map). It was a bit off from the main street with fairly steep entrance. When we were there, the snow started melting so it was wet and dragging luggages made it a bit messy.

The hotel was very lovely. Checking in and out was efficient and fast. Our room was on the 4th floor with twin bed. We loved our room so much, it was comfy, plenty of English speaking TV channels, bathroom was OK. Breakfast was OK. It was a nice stay, Zermatt was such a lovely town.
