Back then I did not have that much money, I chose the Le petit Hotel because it seemed to be fairly priced.
I only stayed a couple of nights, it isn't called "petit" without a reason, but I was traveling alone so the rooms offered enough space. It was clean and c, what else can you ask for :-)

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Petit Hotel Zermatt
Hôtel fabuleux et le personnel était génial !
L'hôtel était simple mais pratique - il y avait tout ce dont l'on pouvait avoir besoin. La cuisine était succulente, et le personnel était le plus sympathique de tous les hôtels où l'on soit jamais allé ! Je conseillerais cet hôtel sans hésiter.
Magnifique terrasse sur le toit
Je reviens à peine du Petit Hôtel. J'ai passé de supers vacances, l'hôtel était parfait, bien situé, la cuisine était délicieuse, le personnel sympa et le rapport qualite-prix était formidable.
Fabulous hotel and the staff were great!
The hotel was basic but functional - it had everything we needed. The food was fabulous, and the staff were the most friendly of any hotel we have ever stayed in! I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Fantastic roof sun terrace
Just got back home from Le Petit Hotel, Had a wonderful holiday, hotel perfectly adequate, good position, good food, friendly staff and fantastic value for money
Great, friendly, cosy hotel
Our family of 8 stayed here for 2 weeks over Christmas. Had a great stay. The food and service was excellent. Tthe chef did his upmost to cater for one of our children who is a very fussy eater. The staff, who are all crystal reps were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The only complaint that we had, was there wasn't enough gravy on our Christmas dinner! Would definitely stay there again.
Le Petit is not really a hotel as it is run like a chalet. Cleaning patchy, management unwelcoming, unable to make tea or coffee except at certain times (no facilities in room). Radiator control knob broken and only half the radiator came on, despite promises to fix it, remained broken throughout our stay. Insufficient lighting in room particularly in wardrobe area. Wholly British staffed, with table-waiting, bar service, and room cleaning by Crystal reps. On the plus side, dinner generally good, and Crystal reps pleasant and friendly.
After staying in Chamonix in a professional establishment this was a complete let down. Staff ie management were unwelcoming, a total let down and a very disappointing end to a holiday. A cheap option but definately not worth it. The chef was super but the rest a complete turn off. I don't know how crystal can put their name to such a hotel. DIRE
I must agree with the main points given in the other two reviews. OK, the room was a touch small but it had everything we needed. The location is great, about 2 minutes from the main street but it was quiet and you could hear the steam from your room. We booked it through Crystal holidays as part of a package deal and the food was included, I was a little nervous about this at first but needn't have been. Everynight the food was excellent, a four course meal with complimentary wine (which was not bad either), a rather pleasant surprise. The atmosphere was very good here and the staff friendly. I would recomend both the resort and hotel.
Great little hotel
We stayed here in July, '98 and it is a great hotel. Just up the path from the main church square, not far from shops, dining, and bakery and deli.
The only sun terrace in Zermatt that I could see. It has an absolutely stunning view of the Matterhorn from the terrace. Rooms are very nice, everything worked fine. Restaurant was excellent, small but very well done with a small bar area also. Rushing stream goes by the hotel and is delightful to listen to as you fall asleep. Management was wonderful, doing anything possible to make our stay memorable.
Zermatt is such an exquistite place to go. And this hotel was a very nice place to stay, without spending a great deal on the accomodations, but enjoying all that it had to offer. We will go back, and I reccomend it highly as a place to consider staying.
A little gem!
Stayed here in July for a week. This was a great little hotel. It might look a bit like a concrete yellow block, but the inside was lovely, comfortable and cosy, complete with kinky seethrough bathroom door in your room! (Don't worry, you won't see each other on the loo!) It had stunning views of the Matterhorn from the sun terrace on the roof and the food was very very tasty! The staff were really knowledgable and some of the friendliest we have encountered. Location is good, just 3 mins from the main drag and the lifts etc. We would have given this 5 out of 5, but would have prefered more pillows on the bed than the one they supplied. (We were told they had a pillow shortage at the time!) Would most definately stay here again if we can.

... and around others, up one side, down the other. I was really impressed with the covered roads down the Alps on the Swiss side. Clearly it snows enough there for them to say "lets just put a roof over the road, that wound be nicer than clearing the road" We stopped in the little village of Martigny in the valley. The sign said on the way into town "The village of Art" Thinking it might just be a nice spot to stop, have some lunch, then head ...
... and peace up here and always seeing the silhouette of the matterhorn is unbelievable. We were sooo lucky with the weather. Then we jumped into our nice double sleeping in our romantic iglu. After I closed my eyes, all these stars were still on my mind. The next morning they brought us a cup of tea to our 'room'. After packing we walked down to the hotel and enjoyed a big breakfast. Then back to Zermatt and via Glacier Express route back to Bad ...
Since we have a Eurail pass and we had a few days to play with, we decided to take one of our travel days and detour to see the real Matterhorn (that's right kids the one at Disneyland is fake) so after three scenic trains through Switzerland countryside we arrived in Zermatt, home to the Matterhorn. Turns out is looks exactly like the one at Disneyland only bigger! ...
