“nice room, very long wait to check in”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

we arrived in zermatt and found that our hotel was a short walk from the train station plus it is centrally located on the main street. then we got inside to find 3 sets of folks ahead us a the desk. only one clerk and that clerk had to walk each check-in, up to their rooms. it took us a half hour to check in and get to our room. the room was very nice, all updated and we were very happy once we finally got in it.

What luck! We had no idea what to expect, and we struck gold. The hotel is within walking distance from the train station, but we took a taxi which dropped us about 20 metres from the entrance. A super friendly girl insisted on taking us up to our room and showing us where everything was. Our room had a balcony with views of the mountains, wonderfully clean fresh beds and a huge modern bathroom with all the usual toiletries. Very much appreciated coffee and tea making facilities in the room. ( not too common in Europe) The hotel is right in the main street, and within walking distance of several restaurants and the church with its poignant cemetery. We were crossing the river enjoying the views of the Matterhorn, when two sets of church bells started pealing. A magical experience. Breakfast was average with the omission of hot toast. (sadly missed) Having read some of the other reviews, we realise that as travellers with no intention of skiing, they have different needs. Also it was not cold weather.

Room Tip: Ask if your room has a view. Nothing like a hot coffee while contemplating the mountains.

We expected nothing great out of this hotel..but it turned out to be one of the magnificent and outstanding hotel not only in Zermatt but the whole Switzerland as well...so well centrally located..staff is courteous and complaisant...very respectful towards all your queries...escorted us personally to the room..the rooms are very well mainted and neat and large and spacious...bathrooms are modern and well equipped..
the wooden balcony was something we never expected...and a beautiful Matterhorn view from the balcony...
Its a walking distance from railway station ...shopping and food is just outside the Hotel...the breakfast is good and the lady serving tends to your every need...very very polite and smiling staff...
I would recommend it to travellers and definitely stay there on my next visit...
not a single bad thing to say about this Hotel
great Hotel :)

10 days traveling Switzerland and this was our favorite hotel. Loved the modern, really spacious room and amazing bathroom. Comfortable beds (and I never say that about beds in Europe). A really cool balcony too. Located right on the main street in Zermatt, it was a perfect location to explore from. Service and breakfast were great! Reasonably priced as well. Too bad we only had one night here...would highly recommend.

Lovely hotel with a very local and friendly character. Rooms were really spacious with lots of nice extras. View from the balcony of the Matterhorn was lovely. The lady who checked us in insisted on showing us to our room and showing us where everything was and how things work. Nice touch. And the lady serving breakfast in the morning was so smiley and friendly. The hotel is right in the main street in the middle of everything. Although not too noisy. Highly recommended.

The room is clean, modern and spacious. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is continental style with a lot if choice. The price... well it's Zermatt, there might be cheaper options but you're right in the middle of the center and the station is only a few steps away. Highly recommended!

The rooms at this hotel are great! Very large modern bathroom and a super comfortable bed. Location is perfect. Short walk from the station and right in the heart of the shops and restaurants. Free coffee pod machine in the room!
