                    Getting there.

                    Since private traffic is only permitted up to Tasch (5km before Zermatt), and the road between Tasch and Zermatt is also closed to public transport you are to park your car there and then from Täsch, shuttle trains (Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn) will take you to Zermatt in just 20 minutes.

                    Also international trains stop at Visp and Brig. Then Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn will get you you directly to Zermatt.

                    Sion airport is 39km drive away as well as other airports in Zurich, Geneva, Basle and Milan. Zermatt also has its own Heliport, which is managed by Air Zermatt.

                    Until 7pm., transfer to and from Zermatt station is included in the price.

                    Getting around.

                    Since Zermatt is no-motor-vehicles-city, horse-drawn sleighs and carriages, electric vehicles and bicycles are among tourist’s best amusements and the only modes of transport allowed. What an ideal place for relaxing and peaceful holidays. Private traffic is only permitted up to Tasch (5km before Zermatt), and the road between Tasch and Zermatt is also closed to public transport. Though Sion airport is 39km drive away, you can get any bus towards Zermatt and easily get there.

                      Unbelievably friendly staff, very helpful and willing to ensure our short stay was perfect. Fantastic room and bathroom, with wonderful interior finishes and comforts. Wonderful location in Zermatt, off the tourist madness but close to everything. Will definetely be back.

                      Nice small hotel with swimming pool and spa area with sauna and hammam. People at the reception are very friendly. Rooms spotless. 5 course menu for 25 CHF/pers was very tasty.

                      Spa area open only from 4pm to 8pm. Even if I understand their reaction, we didn't really feel comfortable with waiters when we took our breakfast at 10.30am since they were a bit pushy to finish their morning shift...

                      The hotel was fantastic. I got way more luxury and service than I expected. The room was so beautiful I almost did not want to leave it! Overall I liked the ambiance of the hotel the feel the overall comitment to a quality experience for the hotel guests.

                      The Hotel exceeded my expectations in every way I have no complaints.

                      Friendly staff, lovely rooms, nice spa, good location.

                      The rooms on the first floor we a little noisy until the restaurant closed, but the hotel was very quiet at night. And Zermatt has something to learn about customer service, there is a minority of people who should find employment outsidethe tourist industry- noone in this hotel, I should add.

                      This is my 2nd time staying at the hotel and again, I am extremely satisfied with the room and service provided. I'd recommend this hotel to other travellers and I will definitely stay at this hotel again in future should I visit Zermatt. It is also recommended to go for the half board as food is rather hard to come by in the evening. Do bring your swim wear as there is a very interesting heated swimming pool in the basement. Cheers!

                      I think the hotel offers exellent facilities. The staff was very friendly. The two vegeterian dinners we had were very good. The breakfast is included in the room price also has freshly squeezed orange juice wich some of the five star hotels in switzerland also do not provide.

                      Excellent service! Friendly supportive stuff! Very cozy and clean! Great value for money!

                      Don't go in May! Lots of renovations around, can be loud!

                      The location of the hotel is great. I had a room with a balcony facing Mattterhorn which is just perfect. The room is big and clean, and its deco is lovely and romantic. I booked for a halfboard package and the food is just marvelous and value for money. There is a very welcome bar and lobby area for relaxing and drinking as well. The best I would say is the spacious sauna and hammam area - one should not leave without using them. The service is also great - the hotel provides free shuttle service to/from the train station.

                      the staff was very accommodating, the rooms comfortable and large. The staff allowed us to use the wellness center to shower after our hike, even though we had checked out. they also packed us a lunch for our hike because we left for our hike before breakfast.

                      pricey, but all of Zermatt is pricey

                      I loved the views of the Matterhorn from the balcony of our first floor room. The swimming pool and spa facilities offered to hotel guests were excellent, especially after a day of walking nearby mountains. The basement restaurant was excellent - I'd recommend it - and the daily breakfast buffet was also very good. I would easily recommend this hotel.

                      Great location, beautiful breakfast room and nice breakfast, very quiet, comfortable room.

                      Room a bit small/cramped, and no view. The hotel is a bit overpriced for what it offers.

                      Staff were very friendly. Breakfast was good. Nice comfortable public space.

                      Single room was small but was not expensive and was comfortable with a good bathroom.
