Great budget accommodation in the centre of Zermatt. The rooms are clean & comfortable breakfast is substantial & of good quality. Manuela & Nathalie that run it are both friendly & knowledgeable about the walks, skiing, village life etc.

We stayed 4 nights at the Alpina and had a wonderful time. This little hotel is centrally located, near the church, a few steps away from the main road and within walking distance of everything else. The owners, 2 sisters, could not have been friendlier and more accomodating. The hotel itself has a decidedly vintage touch and is cosy and...

I went to Zermatt as a group of 5 people for 3 nights. We looked for accommodation in Zermatt 3 months before leaving and soon realised that everything was booked out or too expensive in January. We finally found Hotel Alpina and booked 2 double rooms (one was a budget double and the other was a normal double room) and...

I stay for 2 nights. Zermatt is the nearest town you can stay when you visit Matterhorn/Gornergrat, so the price of Alpina is actually fair. I booked the room quite early therefore I subsequently changed the date and room type a serval time, but the host is very nice and gave quick respond. Although it's a room for single occupancy,...

We stayed here for one night back in 2011 and it was wonderful. This time we stayed here for 5 nights. We were hiking the Tour of Monte Rosa and we stayed there before and after our hike. The location is great- just a block from the main street. It is super-clean and quiet. The rooms are lovely with nice...

I'm not sure if there is a bad place to stay in Zermatt as the town is pretty small and almost everything is within a 15 minute walk but Hotel Alpina was a pleasant surprise. Located in the older district of town, I booked a solo room on booking.com for $67.50 CHF a night which included breakfast. I had a...

Nathalie and Manuela were very friendly and helpful and recommended where to hike. My room nr 25 was lovely with view to Matterhorn. Location was great, just 10 minutes walk from train station. I was there 3 nights and slept very well - no noise at all. Breakfast was tasty. There was even list of the TV channels in the...

The staff were lovely, great friendly service. Lovely breakfast - homemade bread and jam. Rooms basic but they, and whole hotel, were very clean. Very old fashioned traditional place, not what I normally like at all but I loved it. Comparatively reasonable in price too (all hotels expensive in Zermatt)

We spent three nights in Zermatt, and was quite content with this hotel. The room was simple, but clean. Breakfast was good. The location is very good with short walking distance to train station and main street. Hotels in Zermatt are expensive, so this is a good alternative to the pricier ones.

At the price point the Alpina operates, and recognising that it's in the hyper expensive resort of Zermatt THIS horel cannot be beaten. Owned by Thomas & Elizabeth and operated by Natalie and her sister it is uber friendly, comfortable, clean,.great breakfast and well situated. If you're interested in mountaineering, Thomas in his younger days was a high mountain guide....
