Hotel Cheminee
Ranked #9 of 32 Zermatt B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 March 2013

Had a great stay here for 5 nights Feb 2013 with another couple. The hotel is a basic 3 star but very good value for Zermatt. The hotel is clean and tidy and serves a typical continental style breakfast. In the evening the restaurant becomes a steakhouse which actually serves a very nice steak from an open fire grill but nothing more exotic than that. We ate at Le Mazot a couple of times... very good. The owners are very friendly, Kathy very helpful. A particular mention to the headwaiter Morris (Italian) who was very attentive and charming.
The best feature of the hotel is that it is ideally suited close to two of the main ski transports : it is exactly opposite the Sunnegga express funicular and only 5 minutes (maximum) from the Gornegrat railway.
You will be hard pressed to find better value in lovely Zermatt!
Incidentally eating on the mountain in Zermatt is fantastic.. Chez Vrony, very good. Alphitta, very good. Findelnhf, amazing. Zum See incredible!

Family-owned hotel next to the mountains! Wonderful. We stayed there only for a night. We were warmly greeted by the staff upon arrival. Our room was large, airy, had a patio and a great view of the mountains.The beds were comfy and we had a fan! The hotel was close to the train station and an easy walk.

Stayed here with friends visiting us. We had double superior rooms. Rooms were very big, clean and excellent balconies with Matterhorn views. The staff in the restaurant were excellent in accommodating our children. This is a great hotel, and an excellent location right opposite the Sunegga funicular, which is a great area for families to ski.

I hate the idea of recommending this hotel because it could mean that it won't be available the next time we go!

Room Tip: Take the superior rooms, the extra space is well worth the price difference!

I would recommend this hotel for many reasons. Firstly it was close to the train station (less than 5 minutes walk) and easy to find. Secondly the room was very spacious and with large bathroom. It had a lot of windows and large balcony with a view of Matternhorn. Beds were comfortable and down blankets and pillows made them very cozy to sleep in. Internet access was fast and included in the price of the room. Thirdly the people that run the hotel took very good care of us. I would definately stay here again.

Great location - opposite Sunnegga Express which takes you up into the mountains for a fantastic days skiing! From here you can access all areas - saves taking the bus to other lifts, plus, there's not that long a wait at Sunnegga. Hotel rooms are very spacious and clean. Breakfast is quite basic - just the average continental style offerings. Hotel is about a 5 minute walk from Banhofstrasse where there are lots of shop, restaurants etc. We actually prefer to stay away from it and eat in the little stubli's in the vacinity of the hotel - more traditional. Stockhorn pizzeria is a must - such atmosphere and the best pizza in town!
