A short walk from the train station, manageable even with a heavily laden bag of ski gear in tow, the hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Zermatt. Upon arriving the exceptionally friendly and helpful multi-lingual staff escorted me to my room while expounding all that Zermatt has to offer. The floor to ceiling wood paneling of the room gave the sense of being warmly nestled within a cozy cabin - a cabin with a large flat screen TV, CD/speaker system with ipod connection, ample sized wardrobe, small desk, and free wi-fi. The room’s modern finishing spillover into the clean and stylish bathroom which offers a heated floor and shower, no bath. Tucked behind the room darkening double curtains are the full length windows and door opening onto the spacious porch – one can imagine enjoying their morning coffee on a summer’s day here, however in December the extent of my time spent here was the 17 seconds it took for me to capture a photo of the view. Unfortunately without the Matterhorn in the background, but nonetheless the surrounding mountain scenery primes you well for the view on the other side of the hotel. Start your morning’s right with the complimentary breakfast that has plenty of options, whether seeking something light or a more hearty feed. There are many ski rental outfits in town, but 'Stoked' is located only steps opposite the entrance to the hotel. Any rented gear can be stored in the hotel's equipment room located in the lower level. The lifts are all walkable in ski boots, but Gornergrat (5 mins) and Sunnegga (10 mins) much more so than the gondola to Furi (15 mins). Sunnegga and Furi offer small storage lockers, Gornergrat however might find you stashing your trainers in the snow. After a day on the slopes the hotel spa offers a great way to relax - the hot tub is large and vigorous, but don't plan on having a chat if the jets are running. The night can easily be topped off in one of the hotel’s 5 happening bars/clubs – I only made it to the Brown Cow pub which provided a fun and laid back après vibe. Without a doubt I’d come back; I’ve got 4 more bars to try!
