          Nice quiet, functional hotel - no frills!

          Very difficult to find as it is tucked away round the back streets. I walked around in circles trying to follow local's instructions. I recommend you get electric taxi from station on arrival and walk at the end of your stay! It's actually not far!

          Location to skiing and main part of town Good free breakfast Friendly staff nice high pressure shower Elite is an okay place if you're on a budget. Next time I will spend a few more francs and stay somewhere else. For the money and location it is not that bad, especially since other hotels cost double what you pay here. Good Italian restaurant at the base of the hotel. Great pizza.

          room was small (though i did book it a single). Room had a stale musty odor, thin walls between rooms. Sauna you have to reserve, not always open. No hallway lights. they only come on after you have walked half way to your room in the dark. Makes the place kind of depressing.

          We went to Zermatt for 3 days to visit friends who were staying in the centre of the town in a very expensive hotel. We wanted to be near them and the Elite Hotel was perfect. Only a few 100 yds away. We were greeted warmly, the room was clean and well furnished and the en suite bathroom was perfect. We even had a little south facing balcony. An excellent buffet breakfast was included. My husband broke his collar bone skiing and the receptionist arranged doctors, taxis etc. for us. Thank you, Hotel Elite

          Only the ski room. Nowhere to sit down !

          Central, clean, nice facilities, eggs to order at breakfast and good bang for the buck.

          Beware, the Italian building manager is a dodgy fellow, trying to make new, English-speaking guests pay for past repairs on their rooms without sufficient proof, not to mention he was extremely rude. The rest of the staff including the owner, receptionist and breakfast helper were excellent. Just be careful to check that everything is in order upon arrival in your room and watch out for the building manager. Otherwise, they could upgrade the TVs in the double rooms.

          The location was phenomenal and the staff very helpful in planning our ski day.

          The beds were quite hard and the heating system we were not able to control from our room and it was too hot.

          It was close to the centre of town, close to the train station. No need for transportation to get there from the train station.

          not really, it was clean, the breakfast was excellent. Staff were friendly.

          We got a good rate at this hotel and didn't expect much of it. But the hotel is located on a prime location. The sauna was good.

          If you want to sleep in you might experience some noise of all the people going skiing (heavy boots).

          The bed was excellent, I slept wonderfully. Very friendly staff and great breakfast buffet.

          The walls are thin between the rooms, one can hear the voices next door.
