                My, Youth aged son and I went into the Thai/Swiss restaurant for some lunch for him as I wanted soup and a drink or just a drink not feeling hungry. There was no one to greet us upon arrival and we sat down and looked through a menu. My son felt like eating sweet and sour chicken and pork and plain boiled rice. I only wanted soup and a drink or a drink alone but was open to both. Eventually when the Thai/Swiss lady arrived she refused to accept an order for under 50 CHF so we had to leave. The special fried rice and sweet and sour would have been too much for my son and he only wanted plain boiled rice. I felt discontent toward us. We have been in Zermatt for five nights and have eaten in and out and always treated with respect. This came as a disappointment as we had been thinking about eating here all week. Anyway the 50 CHF limit was not written on entrance or on the menu. So maybe takeaway would have been allowed however service was abrupt and non negotiable. We welcome Europeans in Australia and Asians and feel free to purchase what you feel like eating. This was a disappointment to us.

                Enjoyed breakfast and dinner in hotel restaurant. Location is good.

                The bathroom is incredibly small. Don't drop the soap in the shower as there is no space to bend over and pick it up!

              • Couple

                Our room at the view on the Cervin. What was wonderful.

                The heating was working at the maximun so it was too hot.

              • Couple
                7.4

                Great location.

                Hardly any sockets in the room and the sliding bathroom door often got stuck. The room was also poorly lit.

              • Single
                6.6

                The Helvetia is an adequate, reasonably priced hotel in the centre of Zermatt. My room was very small but comfortable. There was a wiring problem with the lighting which made it very gloomy. The hotel staff tried to repair this, but weren't able to solve it. Breakfast was fine, and the hotel serves evening meals, which were very good value (for Switzerland).

              • Single
                7.8

                warmly small wooden room, very comfortable

                not convenience for carrying heavy larggage becaause no electric lift

              • Couple
                6.6

                Free wifi inside the room. Bfast is fair. Staff are nice. Baclony can view Matthorn.

                Our room is Room 1, on the 1st floor facing the main street, rather noisy. At our first stay of night, 2 ladies were chatting in the pub in the restaurant that opp to our room, very annoying. The bedding linen were in rough quality. No double bed inside any room, just place 2 single beds together. No ventilation system in the toilet.

                Good and conveninet location close to Matterhorn and Gournerratbahn.

                No lift and room is very small

                It was right in the centre of town so close to everything we needed for a stopover before boarding the Glacier Express.

                The room was very small but we did expect this being a ski resort.

                Location

                Room was too small and I had to seek someone to clean the room.

              • Group of friends
                7.0

                Great location and clean rooms.

                Be careful about leaving luggage in the bag storage room. I checked out of the hotel on Sunday morning and left one of my luggage bags in the bag storage room while I did some sightseeing. When I returned to the hotel later in the afternoon to grab my bag and head to the train station, one of my bags was not there. After desperately searching for 45 minutes thinking my bag was stolen, while the reception desk was closed for the afternoon downstairs, I eventually found out that one of the hotel employees moved the bag into another guest's locked room by mistake. Once the front desk reopened, they sent someone to retrieve the bag, and weren't very apologetic about the mistake. Also note that the wi-fi connection was extremely weak, and aside from being prone to employee mistakes, the bag room is not guarded.

              • Older travelers

                Position, close to the station, on the main street
