                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.

                small but cheap

                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 cleanest room I have ever had in any hotel plus very friendly and helpful staff! The room was small and simple, but I knew it would be, and it had everything I needed.

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

                The mattress was extremely hard and uncomfortable - we had difficulty sleeping.
