Finished the Haute Route in Zermatt and were welcomed by the staff at Allalin with a bubbly beverage, and then a wonderful room with crafted wood ceiling panels giving a rich feel to an awesome room. Stayed two nights, and enjoyed the delicious breakfasts, typical Swiss fare, eggs, cheese (yum) meats, many bread offers, croissants, and coffee. This hotel is... More

The Swiss Alpine Hotel Allalin was just charming! We were met by a friendly, helpful staff member at the front desk who offered us a welcome drink. She also had excellent restaurant recommendations. Our room was knotty pine with an incredible carved ceiling. The room was clean, comfortable, and charming with a beautiful view. A key issue for us was... More

Very chic boutique hotel, alpine style, very well located, VERY friendly and helpful and last but not least: Free delicious homemade swiss apple tart and ice tea! Absolutely recommended and can't think of any minus points - except that you can't stay here forever ;)

Really friendly and helpful staff, breakfast is good, hotel and room is small, surprisingly, turndown service is also provided. Within walking distance to the railway station, the hotel also offer free transfers between the train station with the hotel's electric car.

We specifically booked a room with a view of the Matterhorn. Unfortunately it rained while we were there, so the extra expense wasn't worth it. My suggestion is to book a normal room and go outside for your views! Very nice staff, good breakfast, and a nice tea room off the lobby. We asked for a recommendation for dinner, and... More

Enjoyed 2 beautiful days at this very Swiss hotel. Pick up and drop off at train station with electro taxi, no cars allowed in Zermatt. Welcome drink and farewell tea for the trip, plus excellent breakfast with lots of goodies. Extra special view of Matterhorn on a clear day.

A very nice hotel , friendly staff , fantastic breakfast. We had an unforgettable time at Spa. Lots of great and interesting mountains, of course Zermatt was the Highlight. Had a 3- day pass for all cable cars. Absolutely the best you can do. We enjoyed the Mountains of Gornergrat, Matterhorn Glaciere, Rothorn etc. We gladly plan to come back.

Terrible experience overall. Our nightmare began with a very cool welcome and got worse from there. The bathroom was old and dirty, the room was outdated and the staff was rude. The sheets were dirty and the rooms had mold in them. They did not clean our room and did not clean our bathroom or replace anything in there. The... More
