              An excellent 3-star hotel indeed! Clean, well-kept, good location yet quietly tucked away. And thank you Hotel Butterfly, for upgrading my husband and I to a junior suite for free, during a very busy time in Zermatt.

            • Family with children

              Hotel Butterfly is very close to the train station. The rooms were comfortable, and we appreciated the bar/breakfast area for socializing with friends. They easily accommodated our request for 3 people in a room, and my kids were thrilled that the beds were all separate. We traveled with a group, and we were pleasantly surprised that the hotel was able to place all 5 rooms together. The reception worker was very helpful with directions and information about activities. She confirmed that generally has great prices, but did suggest emailing for specials/packages during ski season.

              It takes about 5 mins to walk from the train station, easy to find. There is heater provided which is good. The staff there are nice. And, the view of the room is very nice, facing the mountain with snow.

              It is better to provide slippers in the hotel.

              The location of the hotel is very conveninent from the train station and the main street. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Since we travelled with a four-year old, the hotel kindly upgraded us to the triple room which was more spacious. Our daughter was very happy as she had her very own bed! The room was clean and comfortable. There was really nothing to complain about.

              Friendly and helpful staff and nice atmosphere in both the hotel and its restaurant. Convenient location close to the ski train and bus and the main train station. Very clean and spacious rooms and bathrooms. Good selection at breakfast. This was my third time staying there and it has been equally good each time.
