The great advantages of this hotel is the location and the great breakfast buffet. I would also like to mention the great service level given by the staff, from the reception to the ski rental.

The sportive and easy-going hotel at the heart of Zermatt The Hotel Schweizerhof is located in a traffic-free zone on the Bahnhofstrasse at the heart of beautiful Zermatt. In fact, the railway and Gornergratbahn stations are just a few steps away. Guests from all over the world appreciate our buoyantly refined, rustic, easy-going and sportive atmosphere together with our qualified, warm-hearted and friendly team of staff! The establishment comprises over 95 large and cosy rooms and suites, some of which with a balcony and stunning view of the Matterhorn. Our bar with open fireplace is centrally located and offers your favourite cocktail in a cosy atmosphere. In our Dining Room we serve every day a rich breakfast buffet and, in the evening, international table d'hôte menus / à la carte. In our Schwyzer Stübli, an intimate restaurant in the style of a Swiss village inn, we serve deliciously prepared authentic Swiss specialities. Live music is provided every evening by Swiss folk music groups (only during the winter season). In the framework of the Dine Around our concierge team recommend our preferred restaurants and leave you spoilt for choice.
