Before traveling to Zermatt, i inquired at about 40 hotels in the town….many were closed already for the season, which narrowed it down a bit, but considering all that, i don't know how i got so lucky as to have chosen the Suitenhotel Zurbriggen. Obviously the angels were shining down upon me for this one.
They picked us up from the train station in their little covered electric vehicle and when we walked into our apartment-sized room with floor to ceiling windows looking out on the glorious Matterhorn, we instantly changed our plans and booked an additional 2 days here, for a total of 5.
This hotel has uber personality imbued in it from attention to all the details including the many touches from renowned artist Heinz Julen. The architecture in and of itself is stunning, interesting and goes way beyond a typical hotel building with each suite situated on its own half level (easily walked up the stairs or a glass elevator that stops at each). Perfectly, the rooms are arranged so that if you are more than 2 people, they rather seamlessly connect to another double room, so you have essentially a 2-bedroom, 2 bathroom suite with kitchen, living room, multiple balconies
The top level suite is 3 bedrooms.
Waking every morning to a view of the Matterhorn from our bed and breakfast table was a pure treat.
One other reviewer plied every detail in much better prose than I. Suffice it to say that this hotel is pure perfection. Having traveled the world my entire life, i can honestly say, this is the best hotel i have ever stayed in. The service is as good or better than many of the top hotels in the world but you can stay here and never see another guest because there are only a couple handfuls of rooms.
Ideally situated across from the Klein Matterhorn gondola if you are a skier. Far enough from the bustle of town to be quiet. For the kids and us, the wellness center (ice grotto, sauna, steam, fun shower, foot bath, pool, jacuzzi, game room with fireplace, afternoon tea and cakes, free movies, and resting beds) was all so much fun to go try out. Though only a single massage room, the treatment menu is interesting and goes way beyond typical by offering lymph drainage, lomi limi and other unique healing methods. You will fall asleep to the rustle of the river below if you tilt the sliding glass door to the vent position and wake to the grazing sheep and their tinkling bells in the morning.
did i mention that the breakfast menu is essentially order-whatever-you-want? Experiment and try the various swiss meats, swiss cheeses, breads, mueslis, cereals, yogurts and more. During turn down service, the staff sets the table for your breakfast the next morning. Our room even had a Miele dishwasher!
My entire family can't wait to return here. We recommend it to anyone traveling to Zermatt.
