    Exceeded expectations. Great value.

    My stay exceeded expectations. This hotel is comfortable and cute and a great value. There is a ski storage room downstairs that is a quick little (snowy path) walk to the place I rented my skis at SkiSet. There is an e-bus (free) stop just past there for easy access to the slopes. The bed was comfy and the view was marvelous. The bathroom had heated floors which was a surprising luxury. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Breakfast featured some lovely Swiss cheeses, homemade rhubarb jam, and excellent coffee. Highly recommend!

    Excellent hotel !!

    I really enjoyed my stay here at hotel Capricorn. Excellent service and cleanliness! The view from 4th floor is amazing, and there is even a make up mirror for me. The bathroom floor is heated, and the is a wide range of tv channels. The staff here were really nice as I asked for a vacuum cleaner and they immediately came up to us. We had a free taxi ride back to the station when we left as we stayed more than 3 nights. The breakfast could have more hot foods in my opinion and the beds could be a double bed rather than two single beds stuck together. However, I really think the money for this hotel is very worth it and I would definitely recommend to my family and friends to stay here!!

    Beautiful hotel, great location.

    The Hotel Capricorn was great! We had a beautiful room with a lot of windows. It is in a great location and very clean. They had a nice large room for us to store our ski gear as well. The only downfall was one the receptionists was not very kind. When we arrived we asked if there was a restaurant she would recommend for dinner, she asked if we had any reservations to which we said no and her response was “good luck”. We were in Zermatt four days over Christmas and did not need a reservation anywhere. I’m not sure why she responded to us that way.

    This was our second year spending Christmas in Zermatt. We like rooms that offer a little more space and a view of the Matterhorn- this hotel did both of those at a reasonable price.

    Great Hotel with Great Staff

    Amazing hotel, short 5-10min walk from train station. The balcony was such a sight especially when it was snowing and seeing everything covered in white was beautiful. Breakfast had plenty of choices and very filling and the room was nice clean and plenty of space. Staff are fantastic and very helpful. Would stay here again.

    Wonderful hotel and views

    Room 404 with Matterhorn view was simply wonderful. The view over zermatt from the balcony is to die for. Spend the little extra to get one of those rooms.
