10/10 Exceptional

Excellent hotel in the heart of Zermatt
This property is amazing. It is near the Very center of town. Walkable to everything. It has a courtyard with loads of chairs for enjoying the outside. Rooms are spacious, clean, and very well-appointed. Minibar, fridge, heated towel racks, robes/slippers, complimentary water and kombucha. The spa area is also exemplary--hot tub/jacuzzi, pool, sauna, wet sauna, and aromatherapy shower. All very clean. The staff are extremely helpful and attentive. Breakfast in the morning is extensive and delicious. Eggs, bacon, granola bar, breakfast, cheeses, meats, espresso, etc. We would definitely stay here again!
