These are the hotels we recommend, either for their beautiful or convenient location, their friendly pricing or the excellent traveler reviews.
Zermatt is the place to be if you prefer a car free town, and if you value shopping, a wide choice of restaurants and lots of transportation services into the mountains. It's a lively, touristy, pretty town.
If you prefer smaller villages, then look into hotels in Täsch, Randa and St. Niklaus. Grächen is a good option for impressive views, but it's up on a plateau so you need to take extra traveling time into account if you want to explore the region. Täsch and Randa are close to Zermatt and are good alternative if Zermatt does not fit your budget.
You'll find the popular Hotel Gädi in the scenic village of Grächen, situated on a sunny terrace above the Matter valley. The hotel is located right next to the valley station of the cable car to Hannigalp and close to the village centre. Facilities include a restaurant, a spa area with hot tub and rooms with a mountain-view balcony.
