Very friendly stuff, quiet place near city center, clean room with stunning view on Matterhorn. We arrived later than 8 pm after reception is closed, they left us with the keys on the door despite we didn’t confirm our late arrival. So better to inform them before, so u spare yourself from stressful situation like us to make sure they count on you! Overall very pleasant and enjoyable experience in this resort!

A superb gem in Zermatt
The hotel is conveniently located, but also situated in a quiet part of Zermatt. It is extremely cosy and the staff are fantastic. Highlights are the superb breakfast and the newly renovated spa - a first class addition to the hotel. I would highly recommend a stay at Hotel Capricorn
