I went there for a few days to hike the trails. The hotel is a short walk away from everything: train station, cable cars, stores, restaurants, trails, etc. The room I got is small but perfect for me, a solo traveler. It also provides everything I need from a hotel. The hearty breakfast buffet is included in the room rate.

I stayed here just for one night (I wished it had been longer). The hotel is an easy 5minute walk from the station - handy as Zermatt is car-free. All the staff speak excellent English and are very welcoming and friendly. On checking in, the receptionist changed her mind about which room she was going to give me (September is...

We stayed 5 nights with a two year old (partner climbed the Matterhorn). We choose the hotel because it was close to the train and was centrally located. We were welcomed by Theresa, the lovely lady who runs the hotel. She was an excellent hostess, always asking us how our night was the next morning. We felt like guests at...

Hotel Parnass is located a few minutes walk from Zermatt station. Very classy from outside with a well maintained patch of green outside, things get crampy as you approach the reception. Very pleasant, friendly and smiling ladies man the reception. I was allotted a double bedded room. In my life as a tourist I have scarcely seen a double occupancy...

Great room with balcony overlooking Matterhorn for an extra $20 only. Very friendly staff. Breakfast served - minimal selection but did the job. Centrally located to everything and only 5min walk from train. Would stay there again!

We literally got off the train in Zermatt one late afternoon with no local knowledge of where to stay. Used trip advisor to find this gem. Spectacular view, attentive and welcoming hosts, and wonderful down duvet bedding. Take the train up for even more views! If had more time would have stayed longer to explore. Great breakfasts too!

This hotel is a little gem where the attention to detail makes your stay extra special. Our room was very comfortable with a newly fitted bathroom, both with an exceptional standard of cleanliness. We ate in the restaurant most evenings and the service and food were excellent. The location is central with an amazing view of the Matterhorn from the...

This was fully booked so I had to spend my second night in another hotel. By comparison, this one is definitely not as good as the other one although it ranks higher.. Good thing: location, the garden, the view at the dining area, ideal for families Poor thing: single room is super small compared to the other hotel, no balcony,...
