Elite Hotel
Ranked #7 of 8 Hotels in Tasch
Reviewed January 2, 2011

This Hotel is sure enough very expensive since its just a three star rating that is because Zermatt itself is very expensive due to its popularity. We booked anyway because we have no choice, and this is the only available in Booking.com. Only to our surprise when we came, the hotel features barely meet 2 star rating. According to European Hotelstars Union a 3 star would have 24 hour reception, telephone at room and many more that is not present inside the room. Based on what I see the hotel could only meet the 2 Star criteria of the EHU, the hotel may also fail the 2 Star since it doesn't accept credit card without additional 5% increase in rate if you use credit card. You will also find out that this hotel is family run. I only seen four staff, the father who do the breakfast, and welcoming of guest at the breakfast table, the mother who do the management, preparation of table and sometime reception as well. I seen a son who cleans up the table and dishes, and the a daugther maybe whom I met at the reception when we came but could not decide and called the mother. If you are going to this hotel on non peak season, try to find another hotels. But if you don't mind the hotel and your are just in Zermat to enjoy the adventure, It's not bad just sleeping in this hotel. But the 5% increase when your paying credit card were not mentioned in Booking.com so I want to raise it to Booking.com.

Close to train station which is handy but you hear the trains. The room was adequate but the cheapest we cold find in the area. There is little in Täsch but it is cheaper than Zermatt.

Fabulous location for the budget minded visiting Zermatt, which is just 10 minutes by train. Be very careful with your calculations as the shuttle train is very expensive. Having said that, it was the only availability for a booking less than a week at that time of year. Breakfast was more than adequate with a wide selection. So close to the train station, only about 200 metres and it's flat walking. The woman at the front desk was highly efficient in the typical Swiss manner, however, the old man I suspect was a little dodgy (perhaps just old and not efficient & I'm still not sure which).

What was that smell? Vicks Salve? Mildew? Friendly husband & wife (who we assume are the proprietors) double as cook, waitress, front desk reception, shuttle driver,etc. By the way, the shuttle is NOT free, but cheaper than the train which is a quick jaunt down the road. The room was a shocker. Bare minimum. One table with a 13" TV. Two wooden chairs. A wardrobe. A sink with two thin, old hand towels. No wash cloths. A mirror...yea! There was a hair dryer. A small WC with a tiny shower stall which offered cold, medium and scalding water all within the same minute. Two thin, old bath towels like "grandma" has in her rag bag. No phone. Buffet is extra charge.The price of the room was the only redeeming factor. Probably around 400 CHF plus less than Zermatt.

I don't know what the smell in our room was but it was vile!
I couldn't/wouldn't walk on the floor without shoes. I might as well have slept on either the main rd or the train track right outside the window and the food was inedible.

Hotel wss much better than we were led to believe fromthe reviews but it was the only one that would accomodate us for one night so we had to risk it!!
it waa pleasant enough with the staff really making the effort to ensure we enjoyed our stay - maybe they had read trip adviser.
Rooms and breakfast were all fine.

We stayed here for two nights and from the moment we walked in we regretted our decision and felt we had been cheated. Given the amount that we spent and the photos that they post up on their website we expected reasonable accommodation, sadly we were mistaken! When we walked in we were hit by the overpowering stench of what can only be described as wet dog and mildew/mould. Front desk staff (who may possibly be the owners) were quite rude and when we left they tried to overcharge us for breakfast for the second day which we did not eat. The only saving grace about this place is its proximity to Zermatt but definitely try and avoid this place if you can.
