Went to Zermatt during mid May for enjoying the snow (yes there is still winter quality skiing/snowboarding even in May on the glacier at Zermatt). Staying at Casa Vanessa is a highly recommended location, due to the close distance to walk to the Gondola station at the Matterhorn Express, which is <200m away; very easy.
The hotel itself is a quintessentially Swiss building, with lots of natural timber and that Swiss village feel, inside and out. The rooms are excellent, and the photos on their website do not really do the luxurious feel justice; it is very clean and well set up with generous sized rooms.
The owner kindly provided a complimentary upgrade (low season) and the view from the room looked up to the ski resort and down towards the village.
The only missing element was no breakfast option; it is about 15min to walk to the far end of the village where there is a supermarket so that's easy to get around. They do provide a full kitchen, TV (no English channels though) and so life is pretty good.
Highly recommended. Zermatt is not cheap for anything, but Casa Vanessa is pretty well priced for what it offers. Free wifi in room also!
I recommend to ask for a higher floor room, they have nicer views (I suspect).
