Hotel Sonne Zermatt
Ranked #27 of 111 Hotels in Zermatt
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Just got home from Our fifth stay in Zermatt, for Christmas week, but our first stay at the Hotel Sonne.

My wife and I booked a Jr. suite facing South, and we did not get a stunning view of the Matterhorn, but considering that we see it all day long while skiing, this is not a problem. We always stay Half board (Breakfast and Dinner included) when traveling in the Alps, and the Sonne really presents a wonderful mufti course dinner menu. If there are dietary concerns or necessary changes desired, the Dinning Staff actually preempts your request by asking each table if the menus suits. We enjoyed the prefixed offerings for seven nights, but witnessed tweaks form neighboring tables with no one leaving un-satisfied. The wine list was great and the overall presentation rivals any European 5 star Restaurant. Breakfast is an ever changing buffet style, and we found it to be a perfect start to each adventurous ski day.

The reception desk is staffed by true Professionals, who know only to make each guest feel welcome and important. It is also a comforting change to learn that the staff is completely internet savvy, and I have experienced almost immediate responses to emails, be it form my home in the USA or from the train riding from the Swiss Airport.

Indoor / outdoor hot tubs, an indoor lap pool and a whole floor dedicated to different aroma therapeutic steam rooms, made for a great "down time" session after each day cruising the mountains.

A high recommendation for this family owned and operated establishment.

We went to Zermatt for Christmas, and we could not have picked a better place to stay. The staff was so welcoming and helpful, from the owners to the housekeepers. Every day started off with a great breakfast and ended with a swim in the pool before dinner. In between the staff gave us advice on where to ski, helped us get to and from the mountain, made dinner reservations, and most of all made us feel at home. We will definitely return.

We stayed at this hotel recently and it was one of the best experiences. The people who work there were amazing - very friendly and helpful with everything we needed - advise of food, skiing, sightseeing etc. I feel this was just a 5-star level of hospitality. After we checked out and went skiing, they not only kept our bags, but we could also come back and take a shower and change before heading out of town. Will always come back here.

We have stayed at Sonne during our short 5-day holiday in Zermatt... I was very grateful to all the people who left their lovely comments and recommended this place... It was wonderful, starting from the very friendly pickup at the train station, and throughout all the stay... Every single member of the hotel stuff was kind, helpful and very sweet. Rooms have been recently refurbished and are spacious and very cosy... Lovely view from the balcony... Yummy breakfasts... AMAZING pool and jacuzzi area... Very nice and tidy... Breathtaking place for jacuzzi outside right next to the waterfall... =) 4 different types of steam rooms and really nice relaxation area... Great gym... What is most amazing that every little detail is made with love and attention...

The place is located just few steps away from the main street, which is a huge advantage, as because of this, it is very quite and peaceful at night...

We loved this place very much and will definitely be staying there next time we visit Zermatt. =)

Room Tip: Junior suite is worth the money and is spacious, cosy and has a lovely view over the mountains...

We stayed at Hotel Sonne after a recommendation from our Travel agent. He couldn't get a room for us, but I was able to after making contact with the hotel directly, and I am so glad I did. Every request was catered for and the staff and owners were absolutely delightful. We enjoyed experiencing the new Wellness area, spa and pool and dined in the restaurant both nights (fondue the first night) as well as breakfast. The food and service was fantastic. I can't wait to go back and for alot longer this time!

This family run hotel is excellent, welcoming and friendly. I have stayed already three times during a ski-training camp. Excellent food, fantastic spa and pool. After sunset an external jacuzzi with brilliance coming of a frozen icefall extend the feel of the sun. The rooms are spacious and ultimately functional though the interior is somewhat classical (a matter of taste). I shall be back.
