We were given a free upgrade to a room with a Mattehorn facing view with a balcony. The room was very spacious despite of the extra bed. The balcony had a nice lounge chair and the view from the balcony was fantastic. When I called the hotel from the station, they sent a vehicle to pick us up for free. The drop to the station was also free. The breakfast was good with veal sausages & boiled egg being the two options for hot breakfast in addition to all the cold things. The restaurant staff was very helpful. The best part about this hotel is that if the weather is bad, the hotel has a huge indoor swimming pool, a kids pool with warm water and a big Jacuzzi. In addition, there is a billiards table and reasonably good gym.
Nothing really but if you press, it is a 10 minutes walk from the main station. But the walk is not that bad. The dinner menu is fairly limited. No lunch is served.
Welcoming and friendly. Excellent restaurant. Brand new and complete spa and pool. Great access to skiing. Fabulous view of the Matterhorn.
Felt my mattress slanted to the side a bit and no thermostat to regulate head in the room. Also, no bar soap. Very minor complaints in an overall wonderful stay.
The location is excellent just couple of minutes walking from Sunnega undergroubd station - also the room was very clean and the staff very friendly.
