        • Older travelers

          The hotel was perfect for our holiday in Zermatt. Our room with a balcony had fantastic views of the Matterhorn, as did the restaurant and the swimming pool. The hotel can arrange to pick you up at the train station which we were unaware of when we arrived. It was terrific to swim in the heated pool and finish in the spa after spending the day doing the tourist things. Being away from the main street was a bonus as there was no noise and the room was very quiet. The staff were excellent and helpful with a good command of English although I understand that German is the main language. We would certainly recommend this hotel.

          We found the restaurant menu to be lacking in choices and a tad expensive. The menu offered no more than those in Zermatt which was disappointing given that the hotel was excellent. Maybe that is just Switzerland.

          I was impressed by the friendliness of the staff and willingness to help and be flexible.Loved the pool and spa

          ... a bit big ... lends itself to the pacjkage or big groups

        • Single

          Very good level of service (flexibility regarding breakfast time, suggestion to take care of the luggage). Warm welcome.

        • Couple
          9.2

          Beautiful and clean rooms, and very good service. Got a room with Matterhorn view even if we didn't pay extra for it.

          Note, only the pools are open in the morning, but not the sauna (and fitness?) facilities.

        • Family with children
          9.2

          Impeccable service. Decent sized room with fabulous view of the Matterhorn. Great pool and jacuzzi. Challenging mini golf course!!

          Not really a dislike but it would have been good to have known in advance that the hotel shuttle could have picked us up from the station

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Excellent hotel with wonderful facilities. Friendly, polite and helpful staff. The food was very good and presented well. The spa, pool and wellness facilities were nothing short of excellent; spotless and looked after. The room was everything we thought it would be and the decriptions given in Booked.net are accurate. A large, comfortable room with a good sized balcony and an outstanding view of the Matterhorn. Yes, you pay a bit more for the view, but it is certainly worth it. Would we stay there again? Most certainly.

          very good value for the money in a city as expensive as Zermatt. and the pool and sauna are great

          It was an excellent hotel. Wonderfull stuff, very good breakfast. Spa and swimming pool - best you can get. Highly recommended.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          A very nice and friendly hotel with very attentive staff, excellent location and good facilities. I have nothing negative to remark and I'm a picky customer.

          This place does most things right and the staff is polite and attentive. The hotel consists of 2 sections merged by the spa area and some may find the 80 m walk to the spa hard to cover. Distance to city centre of 500 meter may also be to much for Americans, but most Europeans will find this place fascinating and compelling. Great tarrace with a view to Matterhorn.

        • Family with children
          6.6

          The Christiania has a superb swimming pool and spa - definitely the highlight of our stay. Fantastic for relaxing after a hard days skiing. Also, location is very convenient for the Sunnegga lift (train) which is not always easy to find in Zermatt.

          Our room was very spacious but decor a little old-fashioned. If the rooms had looked like the Spa then everything would have been superb.

        • Single
          8.2

          Pool / Spa area is top notch.

          the hotel is a bit far from the main action - it is near one of the smaller ski lifts but far from the main one which is generally the one you will descend from when done ski/boarding on the mountain. Had I known better, I would've stayed closer to the main lift for similar price.

        • Couple

          The view of the Swiss Alps and Matterhorn and location to everything in the village

        • Family with children
          6.2

          Location is fantastic..Very nice spa facilities. Good variety for breakfast, clean rooms.

          Spa area including swimming pool was closing at 8:00 pm. This was incredibly early. If you go skiing and want to rest swimming in the pool, its almost impossible. We were very dissappointed as we could use the pool only for 30 mins.
