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!
