“Hotel Europe - A Wunderbar Hotel!”
Reviewed 19 October 2006

My nine year old son and I traveled to Zermatt on October 14th for a short visit. Our purpose was of course, to see the beautiful Matterhorn and the surrounding Swiss Alps. Our choice for accomodation, selected with the helpful reviews of other Tripadvisor travelers, was the lovely Hotel Europe. Even though we arrived late in the evening, we were picked up at the train station within minutes of our arrival. Our quoted rate of 160CF/night included a five course evening meal and breakfast. Each evening meal was well planned and prepared and utterly delicious. The owners, who are active in all aspects of hotel operations, acted as our hosts, our sommelier and went above and beyond to ensure we were completely satisfied. The hotel is very family oriented and kid friendly. My son was offerred alternatives to the five course dinner each night to his satisfaction. They even catered to his dessert desires.
The room was spacious and clean. Our balcony afforded us beautiful views of the Matterhorn. The bathroom was large with a tub shower and courtesy hairdryer.
There are games and books available for family's on each floor.
There is free internet access in the lobby.
The restaurant has a substantial wine list and a nice bar and lounge area for the adults.
The hotel, while tucked out of the way, is a short 10 minute walk to the bahnhof and the shopping areas as well as to the Kleinmatterhorn lift area.
Our favorite, and most unexpected, pasttime was the forest fun park, located near the Kleinmatterhorn lift area. My son and I spent 3 hours climbing and gliding along cable paths in the trees. And, being in view of the Matterhorn made it that much more awesome.
Marianne and Rudi, the Hotel Europe owners, were the most gracious hosts. When I return to Zermatt, I will stay no place else!

Stayed October 2006

We stayed at Hotel Europe from 9/10 to 9/14. The room was booked for us as part of our self guided tour through Alpinehikers so we don’t know the room type or how much we paid. Hotel Europe was amazing. The front desk staff and restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was large and immaculately clean. We had a nice sized patio with chairs that had a great view of the Matterhorn. See the attached pictures for room and view pictures. The bed was very comfortable and the duvets were very cozy.

We had breakfast and dinner in the hotel everyday. The breakfasts were great. They have an amazing selection of bread and they give you a small pitcher of espresso and another of steamed milk to make your own cappuccinos or lattes.

The full 4 course dinner menu was included in our stay through Alpinehikers. Each course was excellent.

We will definitely stay at Hotel Europe if we return to Zermatt.

Stayed for a few nights while traveling with my daughter during the summer. This hotel was definetly one of the most spacious, yet coziest, of all of our lodging in Switzerland. The restaurant was incredible, the rooms were well decorated with very nice bathrooms, friendly staff, great breakfast, and the beds were very comfortable. All rooms have small balconies showing amazing Matterhorn views! A real gem of a place! We were fortunate to have perfect weather to be outdoors, but honestly if we hadn't, in this room I could really enjoy just lounging and reading a book.

Spent a couple of nights there in August. It's a lovely little hotel, location is quiet but fairly central, maybe a 10 minute walk from the station or they collect you in a little electric taxi. Fantastic views (you pay a bit more for rooms with Matterhorn view but well worth it if one is available), friendly staff and management. I didn't stay for dinner but the breakfast was better than you get in an average English 4 star hotel. In all regards a classy little place, excellent value, recommended.
