      Very comfortable. Our rooms had amenities we wanted--seating area, balcony, view of the Matterhorn, and a hot water kettle. The staff was helpful and accommodating. Breakfast setting and variety of foods made it a delightful way to start the day. Very quiet.

      It's location in the town made it a little cumbersome getting to and from the slopes with ski equipment.

      location, room confort and view

      breakbast buffet ok but not as the level of an hotel charging CHF +400 a night. Some hotel staff not speaking very good english or french

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      the bed was comfortable and the linen soft and smooth, and given a good room with balcony facing the matterhorn

      charge for kettle even when the weather was minus 16-20 deg C

    • Single
      6.6

      Staffs are friendly. Room is clean and quiet. Very nice view from the balcony.

      1) Restaurant at the hotel had only one menu and no choice (choice is to have a dinner at the restaurant or going out). We had a dinner one night and food was goood. If they provide several choices (for example, 5 course dinner was their standard, but provide 4 course, 3 course), that would be much better !! 2) For skiing, the hotel location was not good. it took 10 minutes' walk to the bus stop.

      We stayed for 3 nights in a double room with a great view of the Matterhorn. We were in fact upgraded from a more standard room for the same price. Can't fault anything really: very friendly staff, nice rooms, great value for money. I hope I will be coming back soon!

      It was a great time staying at Hotel Ambiance. We got double superior room with the view on Matterhorn - waking up and going to bed with such a view is amazing. The location of the hotel is good just 10 minutes from the railway station/ Zermatt center. The hotel personel was very nice and helpful. Breakfast was very good. We belive we will be back there soon :).

      Fantastic Matterhorn views from our suite on the top floor; pleasant staff, picturesque town.

      The staff were friendly and welcoming from our arrival. We had a lovely floral balcony with views of the Matterhorn. Breakfast was delicious and dinner great. we were made to feel like guests.

      The hotel was alright I guess. Nice and tidy.

      I got the impression from the website, that it was closer to the centre of Zermatt. The website told me that the parking could be arranged on their own area. Not true!!! Due to bringing 4 relativily expensive bikes, I neeed to park safely. I even sent a separate email about it the day before, without any response. Well the parking at the public psrking-area in Tasch, a small neighbouring village, looked quite safe. Snd I crossed my fingerd that I would find our bikes locked to the car, the next day. The hotels in the area could explain that they all had the same parking-arrangement and that everybody needs to park outside Zermatt and take the local train.

      Convenience, location, food, quiet atmosphere

      With a lot of competition in your business in Zermatt, i feel you could still lower the price to gain a definite advantage over others.

    • Older travelers

      Our room included a balcony with a direct view of the Matterhorn, which was the primary purpose for our visit to Zermatt. Many of the rooms provide this same view. The candlelight breakfast service was absolutely top notch.

      The rooms are a little dated. There clean and not dilapidated, just a little dated in styling.

    • Group of friends
      10.0

      Staff was very friendly. Allowed us an early check-in so we could drop off our luggage. Breakfast buffet was wonderful- wide selection of food and very delicious. Highly recommend this hotel.

    • Group of friends
      7.8

      The staff were very friendly and flexible, we did not have time to go to the hot tub on the first day and they arranged for it to be opened for us the next day. They were great with directions. The breakfast was excellent! Feels like a family atmosphere and is very comfortable.

      The only thing which was slightly incovenient was to find the hotel, it said 10 mins walk from the station it was very confusing without a smart phone. I'd recommend an easy map or directions to be sent with the booking confirmation.
