I just ended my second 4 nights visit to Zermatt. Both visits were for ski purposes with friends and family. We reached Zermatt by train (with one connection in Visp) directly from Zurich airport. The Admiral Hotel is just 10 minutes walk from the main Zermatt train station. They gave us a lift , to and from the hotel which...

We stayed at the hotel as a crowded group and we were all very happy with our rooms, but we were especially happy with the staff. Every one of them were kind and friendly, and did their best to make us feel welcome. I would definitely recommend staying there. (also great location - in front of the water but thick...

Best hotel we had on our trip. Great rooms and breakfast, friendly helpful staff (spoke great English), and great location and view. Only complaint is the bad pillow but I still give it 5*. I highly recommend this hotel.

Great location, good service, clean room, comfortable beds and delicious breakfast! The view of Matterhorn right at the balcony was the best. We enjoyed the stay at this hotel a lot. Strongly recommend the room with Matterhorn view.

Great location, welcoming desk crew, friendly multilingual waiter and very comfortable suite and room! What else are you looping for? The 6 of us just loved every minute spent there. It is only a 5 minutes walk from The train station and The view towards The Matterhorn is just breathtaking, even on a cloudy day.

My wife and I started coming to Zermatt regularly for ski vacations in 2001. This year our go-to hotel was sold out so we decided to try the Admiral Hotel. Based on location and price it seemed to be the best fit. In the end, we concluded we will definitely be back! On arrival in town we decided to do...

I spent a long weekend end of August in this family run hotel. I requested a single but was upgraded on arrival to a double with balcony with a "to die for" view of the Matterhorn. Excellent room, bathroom, and facilities. Breakfast was excellent too and you can request eggs to your specific needs. Robe and slippers included in the...

Spent 3 days & 2 nights in room 404 at the wonderful Hotel Admiral. Cute, clean, friendly the Hotel Admiral delivered from start to finish. We received a warm welcome and were shown to our large rooms with balconies overlooking the river, town and if you're lucky The Matterhorn! We enjoyed the spa one afternoon after hiking.

I spent one week at the hotel. Even if the breakfast was not premium, but good, the service was very good and I can reccomand the hotel not only for that but also for the position- close to the ski lift - one minute for Rothon skilift- and one minute to the bus station for Matterhornglcier skilift. Very nice view...

We just returned from a wonderful two week trip to Zermatt. The first week we stayed at the Admiral Hotel. Karin Julen is one of the most gracious hosts my husband and I have ever experienced. We arrived very early and our room was ready. Room was small but just enough and very comfortable. And I might add everything was...
