Very Good 8.0
Ski trip with my son
We had a great time. We had a corner room on the 2nd floor with a balcony where you can see the matterhorn by leaning out. Overall hotel was excellent. I had two main complaints. First, the room was so hot, it was unbearable. There is no way to turn

Excellent hotel in Zermatt
Food, especially breakfast was great. Very helpful staff. The location is walkable from the train station. Only disappointment is no view of the Matterhorn. Otherwise a perfect “10”.
Edward, us3 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
The hotel staff was attentive, room was very clean. The breakfast was great! I have only 2 complaints/comments: 1) the light switches were very difficult for us to figure out. Some switches seemed to be for individual lights, but when we turned them off, all the lights in the room went out. Labeling would be very helpful. 2) we had drinks in the bar anddinner in the hotel dining room one night. Both were understaffed and had poor service.

Great stay.
The hotel is located A 10 minute walk from the main start. If you have luggage the hotel provides transportation. The desk staff is super friendly. Our room had a nice view and was very comfortable. Breakfast was beautifully prepared and presented. There are lots of good restaurants a short walk from the Alpenhof. Overall a great stay.
