The manager is very friendly and extremely responsible. The view from my room was amasing: if the day was sunny I was able to see the Matterhorn. What I realy enjoyed very much is that the dinner was served really fast and I didn't spend time waiting from one dish to another.

We paid a little extra for a room with a view of the Matterhorn and felt it was worthwhile. The location is central and seemed convenient to walk anywhere we wanted to go, but not in such a busy place so as to be too noisy from crowds at night. The inn keeper, Theresa, was superb, and very helpful with...

This is our first time to Switzerland and Zermatt. The hotel is close to everything in town and I am sure it has to be the most friendliest hotel in town. We stayed three nights and each day got better than the last. Teresa and all the staff made us feel as if we were the only guests here. Reccomendations...

I went there for a few days to hike the trails. The hotel is a short walk away from everything: train station, cable cars, stores, restaurants, trails, etc. The room I got is small but perfect for me, a solo traveler. It also provides everything I need from a hotel. The hearty breakfast buffet is included in the room rate.

I stayed here just for one night (I wished it had been longer). The hotel is an easy 5minute walk from the station - handy as Zermatt is car-free. All the staff speak excellent English and are very welcoming and friendly. On checking in, the receptionist changed her mind about which room she was going to give me (September is...

We stayed 5 nights with a two year old (partner climbed the Matterhorn). We choose the hotel because it was close to the train and was centrally located. We were welcomed by Theresa, the lovely lady who runs the hotel. She was an excellent hostess, always asking us how our night was the next morning. We felt like guests at...

Hotel Parnass is located a few minutes walk from Zermatt station. Very classy from outside with a well maintained patch of green outside, things get crampy as you approach the reception. Very pleasant, friendly and smiling ladies man the reception. I was allotted a double bedded room. In my life as a tourist I have scarcely seen a double occupancy...

Great room with balcony overlooking Matterhorn for an extra $20 only. Very friendly staff. Breakfast served - minimal selection but did the job. Centrally located to everything and only 5min walk from train. Would stay there again!

We literally got off the train in Zermatt one late afternoon with no local knowledge of where to stay. Used trip advisor to find this gem. Spectacular view, attentive and welcoming hosts, and wonderful down duvet bedding. Take the train up for even more views! If had more time would have stayed longer to explore. Great breakfasts too!
