If you’re planning a trip to the Alps, the mighty Matterhorn will be there waiting for you from all directions, but Zermatt has the best lodging. The vista is dominated by this magnificent mountain that offers the beauty, and the auto-free village of Zermatt keeps the village as quaint as you see in movies. There are three main streets, all running parallel through downtown to the Matter Vispa River. These three Zermatt hotels are just a sample of places to stay.
Hotel Walliserhof Zermatt
Centrally located, you’ll be just 1,000 feet from the train station. Rooms in this Valais chalet style are furnished with television, free Wi-Fi, and a desk, the bathroom is stock with bathtub, bathrobes, and a hair dryer. Start your day with a breakfast in the hotel restaurant, return for lunch, and dinner of international and regional cuisine will be waiting for dinner. At the end of your busy day on the slope, relax in the hot tub, sauna, or spa.
22 Summits Boutique Hotel
The Zermatt – Matterhorn is a few steps away, and the check-in and check-out process is fast, getting you to your allergy-free room so you can rest or get ready for a day on the slopes. Start your day with a continental breakfast or head to the fitness center. If you prefer eating in private while you watch television, room service is available. Have your morning cup of coffee in your room and use the free Wi-Fi and desk in your room to stay in touch with the office.
As the name indicates, of all the Zermatt Hotels, this is the perfect lodging for the honeymoon couple or a couple that just needs to get away. Located in a quiet area of Zermatt, there is a garden to relax in and your room is furnished with free WiFi, flat-screen cable TV, a coffee maker, and safety box. The Sunnegga Funicular Railway is closer than 2,300 feet away or go hiking down any of the nearby paths. Your day can start at the daily break buffet and the night can wind down at the cozy lounge bar.
Quiet surroundings at the foot of the Matterhorn – this is Mountain Paradise. Spend a day in the sauna or steam room and work out in the gym. Your morning can start with a buffet breakfast in the hotel restaurant on your room’s balcony. Catch the Winkelmatten Bus in front of the property and take the Klein Matterhorn Cable Car for a four minute ride up the slope.
