Le Petit Hotel
Travel Blogs from Zermatt
I arrived in Martigny mid-afternoon after a fairly straightforward 4.5 hour stroll from Saint-Marice, where I spent a lovely evening with the Augustian community at their abbey in the town. Its claim to fame is that it is the oldest continuously functioning abbey in the western world, having been founded in 515AD. The basilica has had to be rebuilt a few times owing to rockfalls from the mountain behind it, but I was reassured that it ...
... Gornergrat. Hannah and allie met nanna. A really cute big Saint Bernard. And of course they got their photo with nanna. We hiked down a little bit bad then caught the train again down. It rained on and off. But didn't stop us. Hannah and allie were so amazed by the beauty of the Swiss alps. There was a photo op around every ...
Shopping in Milan in am in Galleria. Vittorio Emmanuelle II shopping mall. Only thing we could afford was souvenirs. Hannah and allie did go in the Louis Vitton store. Duomo. 3rd oldest church. Amazing how everything is old but is preserved so well. Driving to zermatt Switzerland. Through the alps. Left Milan it was in the 80's. Stopped for lunch in Swiss alps, it was ...
... stone bridge. We then got to climb back up a few hundred metres on those same gravel tracks. No problem for us seasoned climbers. Except when we were still in a high gear from going downhill! We climbed for quite sometime before emerging from the pine forest by a little church. The views across the valley were pretty cool, lots of villages scattered around different heights on the other side of the gorge. How do they get building ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsLe Petit Hotel Zermatt
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.
