Every bit of Zermatt is an experience to remember. Its quaintness doesn’t escape you despite it being such a tourist hub. A lot of travelers take the Glacier Express from/to this town that has a strict view on pollution. Albana Real offers a pickup and drop to the station in its electric car for a nominal price.
It is a family run hotel with very warm service, the family is also very helpful and friendly. It has a nice log cabin feel to it. Our room, though tiny, had a great view despite being on the first floor. When we were in Zermatt, the weather was not suitable to go atop any mountain and the Matterhorn was hidden under the gentle snow. Our extremely cozy room was one that would befit a honeymoon! For such a tiny hotel, with small bedrooms, the bathrooms were surprisingly big, with separate his and hers washbasins!
Good breakfast selections with friendly staff waiting to serve you completely made our morning. Our highlight was the spectacular Thai dinner at Rua Thai. By far the most potent and fantastic Thai green curry ever. This was one of the few European restaurants that got the Asian flavor & spice so well. The Malay head chef is highly entertaining and talented. The hotel also has a Japanese restaurant Fuji though we didn’t get a chance to try it out.
Though the hotel doesn’t offer room service, they were willing to make an exception for us! But we’re glad we chose to go down to the restaurant. I would go back to Zermatt just to stay at Albana Real. You should too.
