Hotel Parnass 2017 We just completed our second stay at Parnass and booked another week in 2018! We love this hotel because it provides all the elements of a great stay – convenience, excellent value, friendly atmosphere, good dining and marvelous views of the Matterhorn. The owner just upgraded the bathrooms. The hotel is extraordinarily convenient-it is situated about five...

I went to Zermatt for skiing holidays and stayed in this hotel for five nights. I had an amazing stay. The hotel's owner always did everything to make the stay as enjoyable as possible, even taking the time to explain me about Zermatt on the day of my arrival. The hotel room was larger than I would expect for a...

I have just come back from a week's skiing in Zermatt, staying at this wonderful hotel. It could define Swiss hospitality. The owners/managers could not have been more friendly or helpful, right from our warm welcome through to the buggy trip back to the station at the end of our trip. One particular feature is that they have proper single...

Stayed for one week in a single room in Hotel Parnass, taking the dinner option on five nights. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Position excellent with the ski bus on the doorstep for the Klein Matterhorn and the Gornergrat and Sunegga trains easily walkable. Food was excellent at both breakfast and in the evening. Room was comfortable. All in all...

The hotel is located right next to the river, very close to Sunnega lift and to the main area for restaurants and night life. Perfect for skiers and guests who like to explore the village, too. From the breakfast room (and many guest rooms) one has a stunning view of the Matterhorn - bring your camera! Rooms are small but...

Nice, spotlessly clean room for an affordable price. The staff was outstanding; warm, friendly, available, and helpful. Rooms were small but had everything you would need. Fresh breakfast offered at a convenient time.

Everything seems to be perfect for me. The location is just few hundred metres from the station which you can drag your luggages to the hotel easily from the train station even during snow. The room faced directly with Matternhorn and if you are lucky, you can view it both day and night from your room. The service is great....

The manager is very friendly and extremely responsible. The view from my room was amasing: if the day was sunny I was able to see the Matterhorn. What I realy enjoyed very much is that the dinner was served really fast and I didn't spend time waiting from one dish to another.

We paid a little extra for a room with a view of the Matterhorn and felt it was worthwhile. The location is central and seemed convenient to walk anywhere we wanted to go, but not in such a busy place so as to be too noisy from crowds at night. The inn keeper, Theresa, was superb, and very helpful with...
