Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

Gornergrat peak is a very good place. Very good to stay too. Stay at 3100 Kulm. Just superb. Heaven is so close by. By the time its evening all tourist have left along with the departure of the last train. And then we had the whole peak and surrounding mountain ranges exclusively for ourselves without any distraction. The food was served by Alex who as a special mention here made our vegetarian course very memorable. Go there guys and enjoy the fresh air. Full moon . and bliss on earth.

Here is my dream destination , definitely one of my honeymoon place and here has been in my remarkable moment. I love all professional staffs, great service-mind, they know what they should do. My husband and I were so impressed with Matterhorn view, chic designed room and service, we will absolutely come back again, if we have chance. Finally, I have nothing to complain and I would love to say that "3100kulmhotel is perfect hotel for honeymoon"

It's all about the view. Hotel room looked straight out at the Matterhorn - we couldn't help laughing every time we looked towards the window and saw such an awesome sight. The room itself was pleasant: kettle (but no milk), beds comfy, nice rock on the wall - but that was all secondary. And not that we slept that much - kept getting up to look at the mountain in different lights. And to see it first thing in the morning, sunlight on its tip, was magical.
One gripe would be that all the shops in the vicinity shut really early - about 4pm - and don't open til after 9, so if you want that T-shirt/souvenir don't delay (sorry, daughter).
And one really infuriating thing - there would have been a spectacular starscape had it not been ruined by the ridiculously bright light from the station clock which was on all night. Was that really necessary? I realise that may be nothing to do with the hotel but it made me wish I had an air rifle handy.
Restaurant was excellent - seemed a bit bizarre that we got Chinese-style sweet & sour chicken instead of Swiss-style grub but it was good, and the staff were very helpful and pleasant. Bit odd the following morning that we had to compete for breakfast with a tour group who weren't staying at the hotel but the staff made sure we jumped the queue, so kudos to them for that.
And it was fun watching the ibex and the marmot when you could drag your eyes from the magnificent mountains.
Stopped on the way up for a walk round cloudy Rotenboden - thank you to the station guy who let us leave our baggage and advised us on our walk. Worth it for the view of the glacier.

My husband n i were recommended by my cousin who stayed here a year ago. We were really amazed how lovely n heavenly Klum hotel is. Next to Gornegrat train station n a 3 mts walk up. Check-in smooth n fast. Rooms hv names of mountains n height. Our room faced the Monterosa-heavenly view to b up. We had a corner room n fabulous view. Dinner was amazing n so was breakfast - staff very helpful, service great. Alex in the restaurant was very passionate about his job - he served from his heart n always said ENJOY. To top it Alex knew name of every mountain - do ask him. We were cold n reception immediately brought up an addnl heater. Stay here - Highly recommended, nothing like the experience staying at Klum. Getting up 5am to view sunrise was a licetime exp.

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!

At the end of a one-week visit to Zermatt, we decided to stay one night at the 3100 Kulmhotel. We had made many day trips in the past on the Gornergrat Bahn to the hotel for lunches and day hikes, staying overnight in Zermatt itself. However, given the unique location of the hotel at high altitude with great mountain views, we thought it would be worthwhile to try it.

The room rates included dinner and breakfast, since the railway shuts down in the evening and opens after breakfast starts. The dinner menu offered several choices for entrees and dessert, plus you could order salads and soups. On a scale of 1-5, our collective rating was 4 for dinner. we were looking forward to having their delicious garlic soup and goulash which they serve at lunch. Although they don't usually serve it at dinner, our waitress graciously got the kitchen to make the garlic soup and goulash for us. For breakfast, we were able to get eggs made to order, including omelettes.

There was an evening event beside the dining room - the World Cup game involving Switzerland was put on a large screen TV. Unfortunately for our hosts, Switzerland lost and was eliminated from the competition. However, it was exciting to watch part of the game with lots of locals.

Although we reserved two standard hotel rooms for our party of 4 adults, we were upgraded to the Matterhorn junior suite for one of the rooms. Great views from both rooms. Enjoyed being able to open the windows to get the fresh mountain air. Rooms were nicely design; good-size, modern bathrooms. Free wifi.

We were generally acclimatized to the 3100 m altitude since we had been in Zermatt for a week. All of us slept well that night. However, be aware that gas (the intestinal type) expands when you are at higher altitudes.

All in all, a unique and enjoyable experience for us. Very quiet in the evenings since all the day trippers are gone, and the stores shut down. Best combined with hikes.

Room Tip: Go after you get used to the altitude in Zermatt.
