“Friendly and great value”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

This is a small friendly hotel near the church just off the main street in Zermatt. Rooms are clean, warm and good sized with modern bathrooms. Good continental breakfast buffet is constantly replenished. It is a 5 to 8 minute walk from the station and almost anywhere else in town you are likely to want to go. Zermat is a great town but is expensive and this hotel was excellent value for the location and quality. Free wifi worked well.

The name is appropriate... It is a very small hotel and is fairly basic with friendly service. Le Petit offers a fantastic value, especially in this very expensive town. The hotel rooms are original, clean, and basic, while the bathrooms have been modernized. The facility is well maintained and there is a small elevator which is helpful with luggage. The breakfast was good and the service at the front desk was exceptionally excellent and helpful.

The hotel can be difficult to find and does require walking uphill with luggage. The best way to find it, easier than the map, is to know that it is located right next to the Primary School in the Village.

Zermatt itself is magnificent and a place that must be explored. I wish I had stayed for another night. When I go back, I will definitely look to stay at this great little hotel that is conveniently located to all that the town has to offer.

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.
