8/10 Very Good

Great hotel, balcony over the street with lovely views. Unfortunately, it’s situated beside a very noisy couple of pubs which stay open late. We stayed on a Friday, so if you stay here, expect lots of noise if staying over a weekend even in the street long after pubs have closed. Ear plugs work wonders! 👍

Value for Money in Zermatt
Friendly lady boss reception and housekeeping. Clean pillows and bed linens. Good water pressure with warm water for showing. WiFi working well. Hotel is a little old and dated and in need of some maintenance but otherwise we had a comfortable stay and it was value for money.
