Nice modern clean rooms with great amenities for a 3 star hotel. Staffs are very friendly and accomodating. I think this is the best area to see the Matterhorn in Zermatt. Breakfast was excellent far surpassed my expectation. Definitely recommend this hotel. 5 stars!!!

The view from the upper rooms (third floor) are probably the best you can get in Zermatt to have full sight of the Matterhorn. Very friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast and very good value for Zermatt.

This was our second trip to Zermatt. I was looking for a quiet hotel with a view of the Matterhorn. The Hotel Ambiance far exceeding our expectations. Located on a quiet street a short walk from the train station the hotel offered everything we needed during our short stay. We were greeted by a friendly and helpful staff. Our room...

Let me get this out of the way: the one thing this hotel didn't have that would have taken it to the next level would be a hotel shuttle, which many of the places there have. That being said, the town is small and the shuttle is not necessary, merely a convenience thing. We really enjoyed this hotel: the rooms...

We decided to take the Glacier Express from Zermatt to St. Moritz over a three day weekend. We stayed in Zermatt at Hotel Ambiance the first night and the hotel was great. We booked an economy double room and were very happy with it. It was small and that is all we needed, because we spent most of our time...

- We got a room on a higher floor offering views of the Matterhorn and Zermatt..absolutely worth it!! - The hotel room was very modern. - The staff was very friendly. - The staff at the reception stored our luggage for the day when we checked out since we would be leaving Zermatt that evening.

This hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the train station. The checkin went smoothly and we found our room to be nice sized with a large balcony with a view of the Matterhorn. Make sure you specify that when you reserve. It is with the extra cost. The bed is once again two singles pushed together which is...

This hotel is situated a few minutes´walk from the more buzzling center in Zermatt. To me, the hotel had a relaxing atmosphere, and I was always (during my three-day stay) greeted very friendly and warmly by the staff. The breakfast was good, the sleeping comfort excellent (I slept like a child), the room was clean and with a modern interior....
