Are there any benefits or things I should consider when staying in Zermatt? We will be a family of four. I can rent great penthouse rooms at some of the nicer hotels but then there are quaint apartments available too. I’ve stayed in other towns where there was definitely a better choice and just curious about Zermatt.
Very difficult to provide an intelligent response. Especially so since you are unfamiliar with the village and its infrastructure. How long are you planning to stay? Are you planning to ski? For me, a central location is critical. For others, it could be amenities, view, services, transport, etc. The more we know about your preferences, the better. For example some top hotels are centrally located, others not so.
What do you mean by “benefits or things”? And “penthouse rooms”? And when are you staying – this makes a huge difference.
I am fairly well-travelled, and I would say Zermatt has a wider range of accommodation – in terms of price, type, facilities, decor, etc – of almost any place I’ve visited, including some capital cities. And Zermatt is a quaint little village not a town 🙂
