Monte Rosa Zermatt (Switzerland), Switzerland

“Zermatt’s oldest, most historic hotel. Delightful private balconies and classically styled rooms in neutral tones. A cosy drawing room and sumptuous fine dining room with gorgeous chandeliers. An excellent family-friendly choice for a destination with old world charm. ”

“If it’s history you’re after, look no further than the Monte Rosa, Zermatt’s first hotel, opened in 1855 and the place from where Edward Whymper and his ill-fated companions departed to conquer the Matterhorn ten years later. Today the charm of the Alpine Belle Epoque remains tangible, especially in the hotel’s delightful balconied façade, its first floor sitting room, full of mementoes, and its ravishing dining room. Rooms are a perfect combination of classic style and modern requirements; those on the new top floor are modern, and very stylish. The indoor pool and spa is the perfect place to relax after a day in the mountains. ”

They say

“Instead of a grand access road a small projecting roof and modest wooden door – and no sea of flags, but a simple brass plate which one could almost fail to see.
A cosy lobby, homely entrance hall and diverse drawing rooms once lured with special flair – and although the Monte Rosa stems far back to the origins of mountain tourism, it has maintained its charm of donkey’s years ago and is far from a museum piece in need of a good dusting even today!

Immerse into a world many believe forgotten.

There is plenty to dream about – and although the mirrors have reflected many a scene and face in the past… they remain silent witnesses. Monte Rosa is not just a hotel, but a structure, mood and life-feeling.

Welcome to Zermatt.... A place where the past and present are reality and dreams come true!”
