“Good hospitality, views & food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2010

Hotel bijou is just a 5-10 minute walk from zermatt which is great to avoid the noise of the shops and tourists. It's in a great quiet location just 2 minutes from the gondola up to the ski hills. Probably best hotel in town id your here to ski, and food if your here to ski or explore the town.

Yes, it's on top of a little hill, so of you don't like waking up the hill 2-3 minutes the bus can help you.

Zermatt itself is a pretty pricey town to eat at, however carol put on 2 dinners that were excellent and better value than in town. My recommendation, if they have the restaurant open, eat there. Breakfast daily was good too.

Carol (owner/operator) is always helpful, will give you local tips etc.

For it's star rating, location, price, it's good value for money.

Yes, if we come back here we will definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for one night. We had some problems finding the hotel but if you ask a local they will gladly help you. the hotel is about 15 minutes per foot away from the trainstation it is possible to call the hotel for pickup. The last few metres are quite a hike to the hotel, so if you are not the fittest I wouldn't recommend it. Very nice view of the matterhorn. The rooms are big enough and clean. The staff is friendly and we could even check in 3 hours earlier without having to pay more. I would definetely stay here again.

My father and I stayed here in Nov 2009 while I was on a business trip to Geneva. The other reviews are correct. Small room (as most European Hotels are), beds were fine, traditional breakfast included in reasonable price, long walk (uphill) from the train station, take taxi cart or bus if you are concerned about the walk. Beautiful town of Zermatt, excellent view of the Matterhorn. Didn't ski so I can't comment. Excellent Service from staff.
Defiantly try the Fondue, Raclette and Würste/Rösti ... yummy Ein Pils bitte!

The hotel is about a mile from the railway station and you can get the electric bus, 3 Francs, from outside the station.

The Bijou is a simple, no frills hotel which gives good value for money. It is spotlessly clean, comforable, and has friendly and helpful staff.

The bedroom and bathroom were of a good size and there was a TV with several English speaking channels.

There is no tea/coffee in the rooms nor is there anything other than liquid soap and towels in the bathroom.

The breakfasts were fine: juice, coffee, cereal, yogurt, bread, cheese, ham etc

From the dining room and some of the bedrooms there were fantastic views of the Matterhorn

The cable car station was about 4 minutes walk from the Bijou and you could comfortably walk into town in less than 15 minutes.

this is the second time i have stayed at the bijou, and for skiing in zermatt i dont think for a hotel package it can be beaten, Yes it is starting to show its age a little (or Charm as its called) but for a skiing holiday it is a hidden gem, Good food good clean rooms Carole & Rainier have got into their stride now and are very welcoming, the only downside is the walk back up the path at the end of a hard day on the piste, so as before top tip is to rent a storage locker for boots & kit down at Klien Matterhorn station or sports shops. Value for money the Bijou (as a hotel in Zermatt) is tip top. ps after a bad crash on the second day of skiing this year, I could recomend a trip on the Gornergrat Bahn to the top and hit the walking trails and coming back down get off at Rothen Boden and walk back through the pine forest to winklemattenweg & the bijou (i dont think you can beat being in a pine forest on a mountain in switzerland in the middle of winter ) ENJOY
