Hotel Alex, Zermatt
Why this hotel? Family run hotel with a warm welcome

Open 1 January-5 October 2019 and 22 November 2019-18 April 2020

The Alex has been welcoming visitors since 1960, when mountaineer Alex Perren opened the hotel. Today it is run by his children and their families and offers a warm welcome. The atmosphere of the hotel is reminiscent of a luxuriously comfortable mountain chalet and it is ideally located in the centre of the village, with all the mountain railways and lifts within easy reach.

Your buffet breakfast is taken in Le Jardin restaurant, while half board (4 courses) or à la carte evening meals are served in the Alex Grill, popular for its grilled fish and meat specialities. For after dinner drinks, try the hotel's Montana Lounge with its cosy sofas, the exclusive Lounge Bar which offers fine wines or the elegant Smokie’s Corner for a cigar and a glass of whisky.

The impressive wellness centre has a romantic grotto swimming pool with Jacuzzi, bio and Finnish saunas, tropical shower, steam bath, with massage and beauty treatments payable locally. For active guests, there is a gym, badminton, table tennis, squash and tennis.  

The Hotel Alex is highly recommended and your friendly hosts will ensure you have a wonderful stay. 

Discover the lakes and mountains excursions available in the wider Valais region here.
