This is everything you would expect in an Alpine hotel. Friendly, helpful staff - and very knowledgeable about their village. Dark, heavy, intricately carved wood panels the room - even the ceiling! There is a big skylight in the bath (top floor). Huge balcony with a PERFECT view - on one of the most famous mountains in the world!
There are also big heavy clunky keys (which always makes me think of Europe). These keys you of course leave at the front desk key-holder. One note on these key-holders - I've seen this sort in a few hotels in Switzerland now, and I think they are ingenious. You put the room key in its slot, and turn it, which locks it and allows you to take the bottom key, for the front door, with you.
The breakfast room is also uniquely Swiss. Beautiful carved wood (light, this time) adorns every inch of the walls and ceilings. Of course you must have muesli for breakfast! and hot chocolate.
Unique Quality: The view!!
Directions: The hotel electro-car will pick you up!
I just completed a week's stay in Zermatt that turned out beautifully due in large part to the Hotel Allalin. The hotel itself is located in a perfect setting, central to everything, yet on a quiet street near the church. The cleanliness of the hotel is wonderful, the breakfast was tremendous, and the staff was very helpful. It was my first time in Zermatt and many on this forum helped me prior to my trip so I thought that I would add to the knowledge base of Zermatt by touting this great place to stay.
(I know that this sounds like a commercial, but I am simply a satisfied traveler.)
Unique Quality: The setting, the staff, the breakfast, and of course...the view of the Matterhorn!
Directions: Between the church and the river
