            Very friendly staff

            Expensive! We ended up finding an apartment to rent for cheaper. Then again, I prefer to cook my own meals and not have someone cleaning up after me, so an apartment was more my style anyway.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            We chose this hotel because of it's location and value for money. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were very good. The hotel was close to shopping and supermarkets, and within walking distance of mountain lifts. Rooms were very clea

            Only downside was that rooms are small and basic.

            View of the Matterhorn from balcony and the bed.Internet acess was good.

            Shared staff resources with neighouring hotel but unable to use their facilities without extra charge. Walk from and to station 250 meters. Van available but not offerred. Hotel Alfa is getting a little tired; but the prices probably reflect thay.

            The view of the Matterhorn was amazing. The breakfast was excellent and the staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient.
