The hotel is quite lovely and was renovated to include modern facilities. Our room was on the front side of the hotel which provided an interesting view of the town and hills beyond, but was rather noisy until late at night. The room was quite large and had a beautiful bathroom, with amentities like hair dryer, heated towel rack, shampoos, robes, etc. The waters, sodas and fruit juices in the minibar were included in the price of our room!
Although the hotel has an electric shuttle from the train station, it is in easy walking distance and the walk is quite nice. The hotel is the oldest in Zermatt and was made famous by Edward Whymper who was among the group that was the first to scale the Matterhorn. Although the hotel does not have great views of the Matterhorn, it is just a short distance on foot before you see it looming above you.
The restaurant is beautiful with crown moulding and crystal chandeliers and a wonderful breakfast buffet is served each morning. The staff were all outstanding - and you have access to the spa at their sister hotel The Mont Cervin which is just down the street.
I would highly recommend the Monte Rosa.
