This historical Cervinia hotel, owned by the Zanetti family and famous for its excellent location just in front of the ski area and close to the main pedestrian street, is now under important renovation works since the last summer. It would be nice if the owners could publish (on the official hotel website) and communicate all the novelties, upgrades and...

Home away from home with food wine and service at its best. Positioned 1 min from te lift and still in the middle of the village. Host and hostess make you feel special and still part of the family. 7 years in a row at Excelsior and we have 40 years in the alp region tocompare with. Excelsior has "it".

Our 9th visit, which probably says it all. The top quality service, the spacious rooms (choose a junior suite), the amazing dinners, the comfortable lounge with a real log fire and the location, close to the Cretaz lifts, all combine to make this the perfect ski hotel. We especially appreciated Matteo's specialist advice on wines - just describe in outline...

Very nice hotel. Location is perfect near the ski-lift. Dinner: lot of choice and delicious food. Breakfast buffet is OK, but we missed fresh juices and more egg choices for free. You could order a omelette but at extra costs. Staff is great and very helpfull. Rooms are spacious, bathroom a little bit small. Nice view of the Matterhorn.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at the Excelsior Planet. The service is excellent and the hotel is extremely comfortable. We also love the fact that it is so close to the Cretaz chair lift with its excellent connections. The food is absolutely delicious and we love the big lounge for coffee afterwards.
