      Very amazing hotel. We booked for three nights, but missed the climbing train on the first night. Everyone must be optimistic about the train schedule. It will be gone after 7pm.

      The hotel is directly connected to the small town of Zermatt by a small train, and the traffic is very convenient. The service staff are very professional, including the front desk and restaurant service staff are very friendly and caring. When I checked in, I saw that my identity was my birthday, and I also sent a free birthday cake when we had dinner. There is another point that Ctrip did not specify. The hotel includes breakfast and dinner. When I booked, there was a Matterhorn view room with a small living room, and the room was large enough. The outdoor jacuzzi and sauna experience are great, with a view of the Matterhorn. The hotel guests are very qualified, and everyone tries to wait for the outdoor bathtub when there is no one. The jacuzzi is open from 3pm to 8pm, and the stars can basically be seen after dark at 7pm. You can take very beautiful and private photos. In short, the hotel is very worthwhile, and the scenery alone is worthy of full marks.

        Like ~ Although I only booked a double room because of the set night, I enjoyed my stay. There will be a welcome drink, and the front desk will let us enjoy the scenery (but we still hurry up and drove up to the Gunera observation deck), and the double room can actually see another snowy mountain. Bath products are good and comfortable to use. Convenient transportation, the cable car line next door will open in summer, you can take the funi to the cable car to go to Glacier Paradise, no need to waste time going to Zermatt. But ski gear can only be taken in Zermatt, pay attention when skiing. You can go out for breakfast and watch Matterhorn. The staple fish at night is so salty ...
