Situated off the main street next to the church and Zermatlantis museum, the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof has been welcoming guests since 1879. Constantly undergoing renovations, the hotel has updated the décor of many of its 78 rooms and suites towards a modern, Swiss alpine aesthetic with stone pine wood and rich tones of reds and beiges as well as grand chandeliers and marble floors. For families who want to have their children in the same room, request one of the un- renovated suites, which can still accommodate a sofa bed. For those who prefer a more modernized, sleek décor, request the top floor chalet suite under the eves, with a wrap- around balcony, direct views of the Matterhorn, fairy-tale slanted beams and a skylight in the bathroom. Guests can enjoy Swiss and Italian cuisine in the more casual Lusi restaurant or in the more formal Prato Borni, après ski drinks on the terrace or in the Stars Bar, as well as the fitness room, spa with Swiss Cellcosmet products, and large indoor pool. The lobby is a bit faded, with an old-world décor that borders on dated, but the overall vibe is that of a traditional grand hotel, rich with history and storied guests who return year after year because of the warm service.

Who Should Stay

The Zermatterhof is a traditional and historic mainstay of Zermatt with guests who return year after year. Those who require top-notch service and a buzzy lobby scene should consider the Mont Cervin Palace.
