Very comfortable room in this family run hotel. Would give it top marks if it had a restaurant, however the breakfasts were excellent. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Staff very pleasant. A short walk to the town centre.

It is more expensive but the view to Matterhorn is greater than you think. In the morning and evening I looked up at the mountain during my stay from my room. It never bored me. The room is big enough for two and a dog. Extra cost for a pet was 10 CHF, which is reasonable. Good breakfast, especially high...

The Capricorn hotel is very well located in Zermatt and has a beautiful view. The rooms have been renovated and are very nice. The breakfast is excellent. The staff is very friendly. It is possible to change and take a shower on the last day after having checked out and before leaving Zermatt. I recommend the hotel Capricorn.

The offer of the hotel is convenient for families or people who don't want to spend a fortune in Zermatt. The rooms are nice and of good size. The breakfast could be improved a lot and what a disappointment when you see artificial honey and industrial marmelade instead of good, locally produced products ! But this is unfortunately quite often...
