        • Family with children
          8.2

          Friendly and helpful staff. Location close to Matterhorn cable cars. Very nice view from the breakfast area.

          A bit dated decor. A fair walk from train station (better to take one of those electric taxis)

        • Couple
          6.6

          Room size and clealiness

          Cash payment as only cash was accepted. Shuttle service cost of 25 CHF each way (25 x 2 = 50 CHF) is very very high. Location is good for mountain view but bad for commute.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          close to cable car station ...away from the city center(20-25 min walk from the train station or ready to pay 25 CHF etc from the city center to hotel for taxi

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          The owners were extremely helpful with how to get around Zermatt on the local buses and were available right on time when we needed to get back to the railroad station. Breakfast was excellent. Although we booked no balcony for a better rate, we were upgraded to balcony as we were between seasons and there weren't many tourists in town.

          The hotel was on the far end of town, not easy to walk up the hills from the train station, but this could also be a plus as it was quiet and a bus stop was just yards away.

        • Older travelers
          4.2

          The view of the Matterhorn was nice, very nice balcony on room. The staff members were very nice. There was yogurt with breakfast. The internet worked and was free. The room was quiet. Good location to access the Cable Car lifts. If you are looking for a functional, minimalist place to stay, this will be fine, but it is not for a romantic weekend.

          Overrated, this property is more like a bedroom in a large house than a hotel. We would not say "bed and breakfast" because the breakfast was minimal. There must be no standard for what constitutes a "superior" room vs a "standard" room on bookings.com, as this was not "superior". The breakfast was: chopped apples in fruit cocktail, lunch meat slices and cheese slices, toast, & cereal, but at least there was yogurt. They do not offer a ride to/from the train (they are at the far south end of town and up a hill). We booked a non-smoking room, yet there was an ashtray on the balcony, and the room smelled musty. It was a disappointment compared to its online description. The reading lights and radio were all unplugged when we first got to the room, so we had to go around trying to figure out where the outlets were. And if you want to plug in your laptop on the desk, you have to unplug a lamp.

        • Group of friends
          4.2

          The location is very far away from the train station, especially when I was carrying a heavy luggage in a very hot weather...there was no hotel staff in the reception when I arrived, only a piece of paper stating welcome and tmr breakfast time with a key on the table near reception. Also, my room was in the first floor. While I was taking shower, I could still hear people playing basketball outside which made me feel very uncomfortable.

        • Group of friends
          3.2

          the view is very good and also the breakfast.

          is very far from train station, if you are planning to take the train in the morning that I don`t recommend you. you can`t use nothing faculties that they mentioned on the website, because the reception is always close, is impossible to ask for helping when you need it. and the staff's attitude is soooooooooooooooo bad!!

        • Older travelers
          4.2

          Good location for Gandola ride to Matterhorn. Good size room with a view of the mountains.

          We did not feel welcome at all at the hotel. The website gives no information about location of the hotel being a 15 min bus/ taxi ride from the train station as Zermatt is car free. The hotel staff did not provide clear instructions to the address nor is a taxi included in the price. At the hotel we were told there are no facilities for tea/ coffee in the evening after 7 and that there is no place to eat accept the town centre ( which would mean we go back the same way we just arrived and pay up 3.40 franks each way! ) . However we realised next morning there was a small shop nearby where we could've had a bite. We were charged the room fee upfront (Fr 150/-!) and this was the only hotel in our entire trip that did this! Overall very disappointing after a tiresome journey!

        • Older travelers
          4.6

          The Room is clean and reasonable nice. The location near Matterhorn is also a plus in terms of view. You can see the matterhorn every morning during the breakfast.

          However, the distance from station to hotel is incredible far. The most terrible thing is that way is uphill, so if you have a luggage with you. You will have to suffer. The staff is unfriend. There is no elevator in the hotel, thus you will have to suffered again if you have large luggages. I also felt been discriminated due to the room i booked with her language. The cheapest room in the hotel located in the forth floor. No view at all. The staff is never in the lobby. Thus, you will have to find the hotel by yourself. Anyway, I would not recommend the hotel at all.

        • Single
          9.6

          Friendly and helpful staff. great dinner buffet value. Was 25 sfr per meal but for what you got it beat anything you could get in town. Free breakfast also very good. Was upgraded to a corner room with an outstanding view of the Matterhorn from the balcony. Very comfortable bed.

          Little out of the way from center of town/train station. With luggage, recommend taking a taxi or a bus

          best view of Matterhorn ,espeicial sun rise

        • Family with children
          7.0

          Staff was very good & were co-operative.Good guidance was given for sightseeing.One night is not enough for Zermatt.

          It was far from station & so they have keep free pick up & drop.

        • Group of friends
          7.0

          I loved the ever friendly staff who never failed to answer our numerous questions and always recommended places to visit as we were unable to go up the Matterhorn due to the weather.

          Getting there was a problem. You could maybe provide more signboards? Otherwise asking the locals would suffice.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          The location of the hotel which is secluded near the mountains can have both plus and minus points (rather far from centre). The hospitality of the staff makes you feel very welcome. My room was even upgraded to a balcony with Matterhorn view with no added costs!

          Location which is far from the centre and train station. I would advise travellers with huge/many luggage to take the taxi as walking along the hilly paths can be very exhausting.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          Very helpful staff go over and above what was expected, they even made us sandwiches when they found out we were to leave before breakfast! Hotel so close to cable cars. Can see Matterhorn from the garden.

          Steep hill and a bit hard to find! It's worth it tho I'd say!
