Switzerland offers a lot of natural beauty that many newlyweds head to for their honeymoon. There are Zermatt hotels that are quietly nestled among the Alps and there are others that are right in the center of all the action. 

And for the family that is looking for a vacation of a lifetime, they will find it here in Zermatt. With festivals happening year round, plenty of shopping and more outdoor activity than they can get to in one visit, the kids will want to return here year after year. Some of the finer Zermatt hotels are:

Hotel Mirabeau

This is one of the Zermatt hotels that is situated in a tranquil area but close enough to Zermatt center you won’t be too isolated. The train station is just 650 feet away two of the best restaurants are right there, the Gault Millau and the Michelin. At either of these restaurants, you can enjoy a buffet breakfast every morning that is light and made from market-fresh ingredients. And in the evenings, enjoy a 5-course gourmet style dinner here or you can chose to dine from a themed evening mean with cold and hot buffets.

There is a mountain-flower steam bath as well as a hot-stone bath and a sauna, all for you to indulge yourself for relaxation. The hotel has free wireless internet for guests use as well.

Testa Grigia Hotel

This is one of the Zermatt hotels that have stylish rooms with a private balcony and free Wi-Fi and a coffee machine.  A renovation in 2010 left carpeted rooms that have solid wooden beds that are covered in quality fabric. Each room has a private bath that is spacious and will have either a bathtub or glass-walled showers.

The Sunnegga express and the Zermatt Train station are only a five minute walk away. This location is centrally located with boutiques for shopping and excellent restaurants all around. There is a pharmacy in the hotel and you can take a two minute walk to play tennis or to go ice skating. This is a perfect setting for a family with children on vacation.

Hotel Julen

Cable cars only fifteen minutes away on foot but why leave when you’ll have so much right here? Like the elegant restaurant or the traditional tavern. Like the indoor pool with a spa. The fitness room has Technogym products and several different spa treatments are available for a low price. Dine in the hotel restaurant and enjoy a variety of international foods or stay with the local traditional food. Either way, you’re sure to find a fine wine you’ll enjoy from the local wineries.

Like most Zermatt hotels, this one also has an open fireplace where you can sit after a day of shopping or on the slopes and enjoy your favorite beverage. When you’re ready to venture out, you can take a ten minute walk to the Zermatt Train Station.
