Hotel Alphubel Zermatt
Ranked #81 of 110 Hotels in Zermatt
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 August 2017

We enjoyed our stay at the Alphubel in Zermatt during the Christmas/New Year's holiday. A bit dated yet cozy and well-situated, the Alphubel provided us with a spacious room, good breakfast, and very close proximity to the center of Zermatt.

The hotel is a very easy walk from the Bahnhof in town and the train up to Gornergrat. Upon arrival, the reception was empty and we waited some minutes until the owner arrived. He was moderately friendly and provided us access to our room. The rooms are a bit dated, with classic Swiss furnishings from the 70's. However they are clean and well-kept. There is an elevator.

Breakfast is a nice variety of Swiss meats, cheeses, jams, eggs, and various breads. For Swiss standards, the bread was okay and the coffee needs improvement. Otherwise the dining room is large, comfortable, and charming.

We were pleased with the value we paid for this hotel, the large comfortable room, and the close proximity to the town center.

Expensive for facilities, continental breakfast included, paid about £110/- per room for three rooms.
Rooms were clean, access for disabled not available. Internet connection in rooms. Close to expensive tasteless eating places like other locations in Switzerland

This hotel is in a great, central location, a short walk from the main and Gornergrat train stations, Sunnega train, and a bus stop.
It's very central, but far enough off the main street to be quiet.
I was travelling alone (staying in a single room) , meeting with friends in the day and evening, so did not spend a lot of time in the hotel, but the room was perfectly adequate, spotlessly clean and well serviced. Same goes for the decent sized bathroom, though the rest of the hotel looks a bit tired.
Breakfast is OK, but it's a shame they don't offer any fruit. Cooked breakfast is not an option, but there is a device for boiling eggs.
Staff helpful.

Stayed here for a couple of days and had the best view of the beautiful Zermatt. Place is close to the main street and the hotel service was very warm and friendly. I recommend this place as a practical choice if you want to go around Zermatt

Recently returned from 5 days skiing in Zermatt, stayed at this hotel.

Great location in central Zermatt and just a few mins walk from the train station.

Nice and clean, breakfast excellent and fresh.

Would definitely return.
