    The staff were especially attentive. It was worth the price.

    We were there in the off season and hotel had just opened after a period of closure. There were very few guests. The choices for meals were a little limited, but it is understandable given the location and the logistical challenges of keeping food fresh up on the mountain. The quality of everything

    Incredible location, friendly staff, and an amazing view of the Matterhorn!

    Room was sometimes loud at night, with high winds and snowcats grooming around the hotel.

    Very good

    Ligging: je hoeft alleen naar buiten te stappen om te kunnen skiën. Omgeving: altijd uitzicht op de Matterhorn. Vriendelijk en behulpzaam personeel. Ook vegetariërs kunnen er erg lekker eten.

    Het gesjouw met bagage en skies via de Gornergradbahn naar het hotel is wat gedoe. Niet te veel meenemen dus!

    uitstekende keuken, uitstekende ligging tegenover de pistes, rustige en stille omgeving. Propere kamers en attent personeel

    soms luidruchtige groepen aanwezig.

    Verder super Hotel voor de sportieve skieers en ook voor kleine kinderen is een ski schooltje naast hotel. Je zit echt op de piste, met super uitzicht op de Matterhorn en de bergen om je heen! Heerlijk rustig.

    Super, alleen bij slecht weer slecht of niet bereikbaar, moet wel voor gewaarschuwd worden, je zit wel op 2600 meter! Zermatt kom je na 19.30 uur niet meer in, of terug naar je Hotel! Wij zijn vanwege heel slecht weer , hele gebied was dicht, een nacht eerder vertrokken.Ook om verkeer van de volgende wissel dag te vermijden.

    Die Lage des Hotels und die Aussicht auf das Matterhorn sind fantastisch. Die Zimmer sind sehr geräumig, das Personal ausserst nett. Das Morgenbuffet, begleitet vom Sonnenaufgang über dem Matterhorn, ist der Hammer.

    Uns hat einfach alles gefallen, das Hotel ist sehr zu empfehlen.

    L'emplacement magique. La qualité des repas. Le côté chaleureux et intime de l'hôtel. L'attention du personnel.

    L'éclairage de la chambre et de la pièce où se trouve le buffet du petit-déjeuner.

    Fabulous

    Восхитетельный вид на Маттерхорн, тишина и покой. Хороший набор продуктов на завтрак и восхитительный ужин. Отличный сервис и радушный персонал. Отличное место для тех кто влюблен в горы!

    Не очень большие комнаты, но это не критично. Номера компактные, сан узлы менялись более 10 лет назад. Но все как новое и очень чисто.
