Hotel Excelsior, Zermatt
Why this hotel? Perfectly placed in the heart of Zermatt

Open 1 January-31 October 2024

The Hotel Excelsior enjoys a convenient, central location, with shops and the railway station within walking distance and great views of the Matterhorn. You may like to relax in the Ex-Bar, a popular place to have a drink, while the restaurant has a fine cellar offering many locally produced wines. For dining, there are two restaurants: Luna and La Ferme, both making good use of fresh local produce. If you stay on a half board basis, a 4 course meal is included; the breakfast for all guests is a welcoming buffet. The rooms are modern and comfortable - and it is well worth the modest supplement to upgrade to the superior room to have a Matterhorn view!

Monika Bodnovicova and her team are happy to help you make the most of your holiday in Zermatt.

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