Alpenlodge is a cozy, beautifully decorated lodge/hotel. The decor and furnishings throughout the hotel and rooms are very nice with many touches that make it feel homey - cozy fireplace, games in the sitting room, candles, etc. The hotel is a hike up a fairly steep hill away from the main part of the town. Not a problem because the...

The location of the hotel is at the middle of a hill. Travel to the centre area need to take a 5 min taxi or walk down about 15min. The hotel staff can arrange the taxi for you. Is quite convenient. The view of the room is great. You can see the mountain. The room is very clean. Staff are...

I was worried because I had not seen many people's reviews because it was a hostel that I learned through Internet search in Korea. In fact, Zermatt was most interested in traveling to Switzerland and wanted to see the Matterhorn. I thought Zermatt was a small town, so I walked with my baggage, but I recommend you take a taxi...

Stayed for 3 nights, they upgraded us to a room Marmotte with the Matterhorn view! The host, Rosemarie was warm and welcoming. There's nothing to complain about the rooms and breakfast at all. The weather wasn't good when I was there but I managed to read at the dining area and it's a lovely place to hang out. Do take...

Dear batengtengteng Thank you very much for your review here on Tripadvisor! We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Alpenlodge! It is correct, there is no private balcony on the room MARMOTTE, but only a little step-out-balcony. The other double room on 1st level does have a balcony. And yes, we are located a...

We stayed at the Alpenlodge for two nights in August. Overall we were delighted; the staff were helpful and friendly and the lodge (which was pristine) had a lovely family-run feel to it.  Our room was large with a great bathroom and lots of wardrobe space. We specifically went to Zermatt for some summer skiing, so we were happy that...

My daughters and I loved our stay at Hotel Alpenlodge. Wonderful staff beautiful rooms and a view that's just to die for. Highly recommend. Just be sure to splurge for the taxi from the train station to the hotel. It's too steep a walk with luggage (and especially with kids!)

We took a long time to decide on a place to stay in Zermatt, and were a little apprehensive about how good the Alpenlodge was going to be. But we shouldn't have been, its hard to find a single fault with this place. It isn't in the centre of town, but we knew that when we booked it. It is...

We absolutely recommend this hotel! The rooms are perfectly clean. Geeat staff. The breakfast buffet isn't huge but of great quality. Many products are from local farmers. Only the location is a bit up the hill, like a 10-15mins walk from downtown Zermatt. But we didn't mind. We were so happy with the place.
