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

Open 1 May-31 October

The Hotel Excelsior enjoys a very convenient, central location in this car-free resort, with shops and the railway station within walking distance and a shuttle bus stop next to the hotel to take you to the cable cars. From one side of the hotel you have a view of the village, and from the other you can see the magnificent Matterhorn. 

After a day's exploring, you may like to relax in the Ex-Bar, a popular place for mountain enthusiasts to meet and share a drink. At 5,000 hectares, the Valais is the largest wine growing region in Switzerland and the hotel's bar and restaurants reflect this, with a fine cellar offering many locally produced wines. For dining, there are two restaurants: Luna and La Ferme. A speciality is the flambée Medici fillet, tender beef with mushroom sauce and mustard prepared beside your table. Both restaurants make 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 staff are happy to help you make the most of your mountain holiday, with local knowledge and suggestions for activities in and around picturesque Zermatt. 

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