Splendid! Took a room at Matterhorn side. It was fantastic! Lovely and Cozy. Thanks a million for effort from everyone at this hotel. Room: Convenient, clean and very enough to stay. Food: A bit salty or a bit too sweat at the evening but was good. Fine enough. Service: Friendly and nice. Cost: Great performance. After we saw the great...

A stay here is a once in a lifetime experience. The trip begins in Zermatt when you board the cog wheel train to the hotel. The scenery on the trip up is a wonderful prelude to the experience at the top. We traveled up around 3pm and the cars were nearly empty which made catching the views from side to...

What a location, looking over at the Matterhorn! Staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms are very nice and large for european standards. It is great to be able to relax on the terrace and look at the top of the mountains in the evening and morning without mass tourists. While Zermatt is the worst (if you think Zermatt is...

The location is a one-in-a-lifetime experience. But to see the sunset on the Mont Rose and the sunrise on the Matterhorn, you need clear weather (so be lucky or make a last minute booking as we did). Also a good starting point for hiking/mountaineering, if you want the comfort of a hotel instead of a hut. From the hotel to...

We (couple plus dog) just spent the weekend there. Reception service outstanding, room large however w/o fridge. Dinner ok, even if limited to two main dishes (meat or fish). Good selection of wines (we took a bottle of heida). Waiter very helpful. Breakfast ok, but could have been better. Overall the hotel lacks of amenities, no lounge, no cheminee. After...

We stayed here by fluke, somehow my dad and I managed to read the Gornergrat Bahn timetable wrongly and missed the last train down to Zermatt. Luckily for us there was this hotel, a super helpful receptionist and free rooms that night we got stranded on Gornergrat. This turned out to be the best mistake we ever made - not...

This unique hotel, totally renovated a few years ago, is a must for anyone staying in Zermatt. It's not luxury, it's the location: on a mountain peak, surrounded by 29 (!) summits at 4000 meters or more and of course the famous Matterhorn. Of course, the weather has to be nice to really enjoy it. But what a treat! Staff...

We were about to book a hotel in central Zermatt when we discover among the options the 3100 Kulm hotel. We were lucky we booked. Half the fun (and money) is to get there. the special train from Zermat caried us to the 3100 meters above sea level and the clouds. I did not even know that we have in...

Sooner or later we will stay in this amazing-location hotel. We had drinks up in the lounge and watched a magical mountain sunset; it was a little strange that we weren't "allowed" to order something to eat along with our drinks as we were not registered guests. The view is exceptional and should not be missed; when it is already...

Take the Matterhorn Railway up to this unique hotel with breathtaking views. An overnight package includes a 4-course dinner and a delightful breakfast. The rooms are unique. Each is named after a mountain peak and the room number is its height. This is a great place for a romantic getaway. I've never seen so many stars! Our only regret is...
