My husband and I stayed at the Coeur des Alpes for 4 nights last summer and absolutely loved it! It is a small property, maybe 10-15 rooms in all if that, and is the closest hotel to the Matterhorn. We got the penthouse suite, which has stunning views of the Matterhorn. The room is pretty cool, with its own fireplace, and a little balcony, as well as a nice tub in the room itself. Some of the best features of the hotel were the location and views, the amazing breakfast, and the hosts, Thomas and Leni. They literally look like they stepped out of the pages of a hospitality magazine, and could not be nicer. My husband and I were on East Coast time, and kept waking up later than we would have liked, and Leni was nice enough to leave the breakfast out for us so we could enjoy it!
There are all sorts of amazing hikes from walking distance of the hotel, or you can take the train for other gorgeous hikes as well.
The one negative was one day after it rained, our room sort of flooded - maybe a window was left open? And it took them a while to get that sorted, but they eventually did.
While the room was certainly pricey, we felt that it was worth it from a value perspective. If we ever come back to Zermatt, we would certainly stay here!
