“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

I enjoyed a 4 night stay here while skiing in Zermatt. I phoned ahead from the station and the driver was there to pick me up within about 30 seconds. Check-in was painless and I must have been in my room within about 10 minutes of getting off the train. Having originally booked a single room I was pleased to be given an upgrade to an excellent and spacious double room with balcony and Matterhorn view. My main reason for booking this hotel was the Spa and it really is an outstanding facility with 25m pool, various saunas, steam room and hot tub. Great for winding down after a day on the slopes.

The hotel is about a 5 minute walk form the main Sunnega lift which saves a lengthy hike in your ski boots or getting the ski bus. You can easily walk to the town centre in 10 minutes at a leisurely pace.

Being so exhausted after my first skiing of the season I ate in the hotel restaurant a couple of evenings rather than venturing into town. There was a reasonable choice on offer and prices seemed reasonable for what is, after all, an expensive resort.

The free wi-fi was fast and reliable with good coverage throughout the hotel. There's also a computer available at the entrance to the bar providing free internet access.

Overall I had a great stay here and would definitely be my first choice if I return to Zermatt in the future.

I had a fantastic stay at Hotel Christiana while I enjoyed some of Zermatt's early snow during the first week of December. We took advantage of Christiana's "off peak" prices which made our stay a great value, especially for Zermatt!

Hotel Christiana is located right next to the main lift. It was only a 3-minute walk to the ski rental shop, which meant minimal time schlepping around in our ski boots. It was a 10-minute walk to the main town for dinner, but it was a very pleasant stroll along the river.

The rooms at Hotel Christiana were spacious and the showers had great water pressure. Our room had a beautiful balcony and an incredible view of the Matterhorn.

The Christiana is known for it's spa and deservedly so. The indoor swimming pool was huge. And soaking in the hot tub was the perfect way to end the day. There was also a steam room and sauna.

We had a great time at Christiana and will stay there again when we return to Zermatt.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Matterhorn!

I chose the Hotel because after some research it was the best I could find with a large swimming pool. My worry before going was the bedroom but they were nicer than I expected - I didn't think the photos did them justice on the websites I saw. The breakfasts were nice. Its close to the funicular. A short walk over to the center of town. I'd definitely stay there again as I thought I got good value for money. I spent the last day skiing so was in a bit of hurry at the end of the day and they made sure I got to the train station on time.

First rate service, the spa is fantastic and facilities are great, the personnel is really nice and helpful. I've enjoyed a lot my week end in the hotel to kick off the ski season. Moreover the location is close to the ski lift to rothurn (the best view of the Matterhorn) and close to the bus stop to go to Matterhorn glacier paradise.

While visiting northern Italy in September, we chose to spend a few days in Zermatt, Switzerland
since it was close and our traveling companions thought we would enjoy the unique aspects
of the town. The Christiania was chosen since in a good location, and had rooms with direct
Matterhorn views. The hotel turned out to be a very nice place to stay, with spacious rooms,
views as advertised and good amenities. The pool area and exercise room were very adequate.
We did not use the spa. The staff were extremely helpful, and our exhausting requests for help
with restaurant reservations and hiking trail info were met with courteous, prompt assistance.
The owner, and her sons, are on top of all details in the operation. We did not dine in the
restaurant except for the very extensive breakfasts which were included in the rate, and they
were first rate.
The hotel's location is convenient to the central shopping area and tram station for the
upper slopes and hiking trails. Zermatt is obviously a tourist target, given the volume of
tourist traffic in the in-between season when we were there. The lack of vehicular traffic
and crisp, cool but not unpleasant temps in September made it a good time to see the area.
We would definitely return to the Christiania if revisiting Zermatt.

Room Tip: Those with a Matterhorn view are the most desirable.
