      • Older travelers

        Particular room we had was beautiful (401). Everything about it was perfect. Clean, amazing view and perfectly decorated for a ski-resort. It was on the top floor, so perhaps was just luck of the draw (Not sure what the other rooms are like). Spa area was also clean with well appointed decor perfectly decorated for a mountain holiday. Breakfast was what we expected with friendly staff. Sophie at reception was also very friendly and made us quite welcome.

        Noise from the street level, and that was out of season - however that was to be expected being right on the main strip.

        This hotel was a little treasure - it had been renovated a couple of years ago and the interior was beautiful - very classy yet comfortable. The room facilities and decor were vwery modern but homely

        I cannot fault anything about this hotel.

        I loved the rustic/contemporary design theme and the luxurious sauna and jacuzzi facilities. The breakfast was better than the average European hotel breakfast. Location was dead center of the town in Zermatt and the restaurant attached to the hotel had very good Italian food.

        I found the staff a little less than helpful and not very knowledgable about the local restaurant scene.

        Very cosy and comfortable room, decorated in elegant and warm lodge style. View on the Cervin (Matterhorn) from the little balcony. Room was on 4th floor, so rather quiet, otherwise it can be a bit noisy from the street passages, bars and hotel discotheque. But well insulated from noise from the street with windows closed.

        Lobby a bit tiny and reception a little impersonal at times./ A little problem with the shower too ("capricious" changes of temperatures), which was mentioned to the reception, but it didn't change afterwards, so nothing could be done apparently.

        The room was very clean and tastefully designed. We also had a great view of the Zermatt from our balcony. There was also a shuttle service to the station.

        Superb hotel, well positioned, well set up and great staff. Good summer rates so felt it was geat value for money. Very good rooms and breakfast. We have been traveling for 5 weeks, and apart from Dubai this is the most enjoyable we have stayed at.

        Temperatures were cooler so did not need airconditioning, but if temps were hot, without airconditioning and windows open it would have been quite noisy.

        Excellent hotel. The only flaw that we experienced was their poor internet connectivity on the 4th floor. Very weak signal that continually dropped, making it useless.

        Stylish hotel centrally located. Abundance of restaurants/bars within hotel complex, but only fully operational mid-July to end-August. Delicious extensive breakfasts available. Junior Suite (2 levels) with balcony offered nice living area with fireplace and views, with bedroom upstairs. Little hanging space provided, but adequate shelving for clothes etc. Downstairs bar facing onto street a welcome respite at the end of each day!!

        Whilst hotel is very centrally located and offers good selection of bars and restaurants in nearby streets, it can also be a litle noisy late at night!

        This is a wonderful Hotel in every way. The rooms was beautifully appointed with comfortable beds and a great view of city and mountains from the balcony where we spent lots of time sitting. The room was remarkably quiet; we didn't hear any other guests even though the hotel was full. The staff were kind and helpful. The included breakfast was incredible; a healthy, fully stocked buffet meal with great servers who were happy to chat a bit and give us good tips for the day's exploration. The Spaghetti Restaurant served the best pizza ever and great salads and full menu. The spa is wonderful and we had great massages from a world-class practitioner. We were also impressed by the modern, restful decor and the energy efficiency of the place. We'll definitely stay here again if we return to Zermatt. (I'm in Salem Oregon).

        This is a truly excellent hotel in the centre of Zermatt. A great combination of old timber framed restaurant area with a very modern and tastefully decorated hotel area. Our room looking onto the Matterhorn was excellent, as was the spa area. Cannot fault it.

        I felt that the price was a little hight but give the town and the exchange rate there is not alot to be done about that I guess.

        This is the best hotel that we have stayed in Switzerland. We were upgraded for free in a junior suite and our room has a terrace with views over the Matterhorn. The hotel and restaurant staff were also very kind and helpful. The restaurant delivered pasta to our room (though they do not really do it) as we cannot go down to eat in the restaurant. And when we inadvertently locked our suitcase with the keys inside they very kindly arranged to unlock it. We had a very nice stay and we couldn't have asked for more.
