My husband and I booked a room at the Kulmhotel hoping for a true mountain experience, and boy did we ever get it. We requested a room with a view, and we were not disappointed. Our view of the Matterhorn was just spectacular, which made for some amazing photos as the sun set and rose. We could not have been more pleased.
We also enjoyed exploring the area outside the hotel, including the incredible overlook just outside and behind the hotel. Just amazing panoramic views.
As others have said in previous reviews, you really are quite isolated after the last train leaves for the night. It’s a very quiet, peaceful experience to be up on the mountain, so close to the stars! It's perfect for disconnecting from the world (even though there is good WiFi access) and just enjoying a serene evening in the clouds.
The breakfast spread was fair, and the dinner options were just fine. I wasn’t blown away by the quality of the food, but it was good hotel food, and quite frankly, it was the only option. ;)
My husband did experience a bit of altitude sickness, being in such high elevations, so keep in mind that you might need to slow down a bit here. But… isn’t that why you’d visit such a majestic place? Enjoy!
