Reviewed 6 August 2012

My husband and I have done a lot of travelling and generally stay, in Europe, in 2/3 star accommodation. I have NO REGRETS for breaking our tradition to stay in this quirky special hotel. i totally agree with other reviewers, so won't repeat it all here. Suffice to say, we wished we could have stayed longer to utilise all the facilities; This is NOT the place for dumping your bags, going out all day and night - you need time IN the hotel enjoying all that's been mentioned.
Also- we thought this was good value for what was provided, considering it's Ski resort territory:Zermatt.

Previous reviews have said it all and we agree with the exclamation points. I would just add that Dominique Julen provided excellent recommendations for a range of dining options in Zermatt and likewise good tips for our summer skiing.

Room Tip: The web site says that rooms are for max double occupancy, but in fact rooms can fit more than two p...

We spent 10 days here this year and of all the places I've visited this has to be my top choice. The design is fantastic and meeting Heinz Julen the designer and his wife who personally ensured we had a fantastic stay was an added bonus. As for the Hotel itself this is quite amazing and the benefit of the Vernissage Cinema and Gallery add exponentially to the value of the experience staying. The Wellness Centre sets the highest standard for this facility and was a fantastic place to relax after a days skiing.
We had our two children with us and were accommodated in the Cube room with adjacent kids room complete with shower, basin, wc and cupboards which was truly a marvel of design and fabrication. There aren't enough superlatives to describe this hotel and we would recommend this to anyone without hesitation. Zermatt itself is a fabulous destination and this hotel is really the pinnacle of design in this outstanding resort.
What more can I say, we loved this place and will happily be back sometime in the near future!!

Room Tip: The rooms at the South of the Hotel have an excellent view over the city and the mountains. Don'...

This is more than a Hotel, it is an unique experience. Starting with the friendly & personalised welcome , the staff was amazing ! The room , well... you have to see it ! the cube Suites are great ! You can personalise your room theme it's amazing ! Then your room is equipped with plenty of little attentions from coffee machine to a automatic fire place.
The morning breakfast buffet is beautiful and everything is freshly cooked in front of you. After skiing don't forget to enjoy the SPA , a beautiful track trough the creation of earth , my favorite the Dead Sea Bath ;-) aaaaaammmazing !
The hotel is also very central for those skiing and those enjoying the nightlife of Zermatt (but far enough so you don't have the noise !
And for on site NightLife the Vernissage club and cinema is a legend !!! the Bands playing there are great ! and try the Cinema dinner & cocktail just great !

Overall you don't really feel in a hotel here , it is rather a friendly house , with all the staff passionate about what they do !

Room Tip: Get the Cube Suites they're Great !!!

Let me start with the fact that a Hotel really has to blow me away before I write a review. Secondly, I am from the Hotel industry and have experienced and been to countless hotels all around the world.
This hotel is by far, the most incredible one! (this is not an exaggeration). This hotel exceeds their 4 stars by a mile. In my opinion i would consider it a 5++ star. All the thought and details that have been put into this hotel is amazing!
The location is perfect! You are in the centre of the town, 2 minutes by foot from the Train station, yet you feel it is private. The Rooms are one of a kind! The designer/architect really has put their heart and soul into this. You will never find a hotel remotely comparable to this one. The beds are super comfortable and you feel like your sleeping in heaven! (no joke). Then there is the Spa. The Spa is incredible. Again, the details to attention is great. Due to the fact that the hotel has a limited amount of rooms, and they control outside guests very strictly, you feel as if the entire spa is reserved for you alone. The spa consists of 7 rooms and a Jacuzzi. I highly recommend to try out all rooms. Every one is unique in its own way. Afterwards you feel like a new born, completely relaxed and fresh!! But do take your time for this (i recommend around 2.5-3 hours). As for the food, they have an amazing concept!! the Flight box! TRY IT! Basically, its rooms service, for any location in the hotel, with a fixed 3 course menu. It is amazing! The chef has a great sense of tastes and portions! It is a MUST!
Underneath the hotel, there is a stylish bar with access to a private art gallery.
I could go on and on with praises for this hotel (in all honesty), but at the end, you really have to go there to experience it.
For any questions regarding this hotel, it would be a pleasure to answer anything. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this to anyone. It is worth every penny and more!
