Known as the “Mountain of Mountains”, the Matterhorn is the most-photographed mountain in the world and stands proud at 4,478 metres (14691.6 feet) tall. It is situated on the Swiss-Italian border, overlooking the Swiss town of Zermatt in the canton of Valais to the northeast and the Italian town of Breuil-Cervinia in the Aosta Valley to the south. It also features plenty of things to do that are suitable for travelers of all kinds. There are also a number of excellent accommodation options around the area, so you don’t have to worry about finding a place to stay in Zermatt. Check out these top hotels in Zermatt with views of Matterhorn.

Upcoming events

  • Test yourself by participating in the Matterhorn Ultraks trail races, held annually in August. The routes are of varying difficulties, ranging from 49 km (30.45 mi) to a kid-friendly 2.6 km (1.62 mi) route.
  • If you're here with your family in September, I recommend attending Shepherd’s Festival and Wolli's birthday. It includes food, open-air church service, children’s games, and a birthday party for Wolli, Zermatt’s mascot. You'll also get to see beautiful black-nosed sheep.

Hotels with views of Matterhorn

1. Hotel Metropol & Spa Zermatt (from USD 221)

Are you wondering where to stay to see the Matterhorn? If so, consider staying at Hotel Metropol & Spa Zermatt. This hotel and spa combo offer a friendly and relaxing atmosphere from which to enjoy your views over the Matterhorn. This family-owned hotel offers comfortable, simple rooms with varying views over the Matterhorn. The best choices are the Superior Double Room, a south-facing location with excellent Matterhorn views, and the Junior Suite, which has views from the balcony.

I also think there would be nothing better than relaxing in the spa area because even the pool seems to have Matterhorn views… pure bliss! Be sure to book in advance though because this hotel is extremely popular.

Best option with Matterhorn views: Superior Apartment (views of Matterhorn from both rooms)

On-site locations to check out: Heated pool (views of Matterhorn)

What guests are saying about the view:
“…The views are amazing. Try to catch burning matterhorn right after sunrise…” - by Google reviewer, Doe Yi

Tip from tour guide

Hotel Metropol & Spa Zermatt is just a minute-long drive from the Matterhorn. If you only have one day during your winter visit to the country, I recommend a 3/4 hour helicopter ride at an altitude of 4,400 through the Alps to the symbol of Switzerland, the Matterhorn. You can even stop at an altitude of 3,800 for a picnic.

3. Mont Cervin Palace (from USD 452)

First opened in 1851, this hotel is a member of “Leading Hotels of the World”, and I can definitely see why! With an a la carte restaurant, full-size pool, spa, and fitness centre, it’s perfect for a relaxing break whilst the views will leave you breathless.

It’s also lovingly known as a ‘one of a kind hotel because there are many unique factors about it; we particularly love the red horse-drawn carriage. The views of the Matterhorn are best enjoyed from the higher-level floors.

Are you looking for a place to stay near the Matterhorn? If that’s the case, Grand Hotel Zermatterhof is your best bet. This traditional property dates back to 1879 and offers a luxurious resort including three restaurants, spa facilities, and, this time, a white horse-drawn carriage.

The bedrooms are decorated in neutral white and beige colours with original wooden beams and features which make a sophisticated and elegant ambience. Unspoiled views of the Matterhorn are best enjoyed from the double rooms, Junior Suite, and Chalet Suite.

“Great hotel. We stayed in 107 and had the semi private patio all to ourselves. The view of the Matterhorn is fantastic from there and we sat in our chairs until sunset. We saw the "Matterhorn on fire” twice. Also great meal in the M 1 star restaurant that should be a 2 star. There is a horse drawn carriage for trips to the train station from 11-3. Picture is Matterhorn on fire.“ - by Google reviewer, David Tuggle

5. Matterhorn FOCUS Design Hotel (from USD 564)

The views from this hotel are amazing, and I particularly love the pictures of the sights from any of the windows in the spacious Royal Suite. If you’ve not got the budget for a big splash out then don’t worry, because come rain or shine you can enjoy the views from the ground-floor terrace.

The location, directly beside the “Matterhorn Express” valley station, is perfect for exploring the surrounding nature. If that sounds too adventurous, though, you could always relax in your open plan room or enjoy a hot chocolate in the lounge, or on a sunny day a cocktail by the outdoor pool, which also has breathtaking views!

Best room with Matterhorn views: Royal Suite

Alternative room with views: DR Skylight (views of the sky)

What guests are saying about the view:
“Amazing hotel with a great view on the Matterhorn. Nice suites with big windows ensure to have a great view at all times. The best thing about this place however is the staff..

6. Riffelhaus 1853 (from USD 485)

Using only natural materials in the rooms, we adore this unique ski hotel. There are two room types that offer views of the Matterhorn: the Junior Suite and double room. Be sure to check that the double room you are booking has views of the Matterhorn as some offer ‘mountain views’ only. One of our favourite places to enjoy the view is actually in the outdoor hot tub where you can rest after a long day skiing.

Best room with Matterhorn views: Junior Suite with direct Matterhorn view

On-site locations to check out: Restaurant Riffelhaus (views of Matterhorn )

What guests are saying about the view:
“Loved our stay here! The hotel’s location is exceptional. We woke up looking directly at the Matterhorn as the first rays of sun touched its peak. We booked half-board and were really glad we did; not only would it be too stressful to go eat in Zermatt and make it back with the Gornergratbahn in time, but we were served delicious cheese fondue one night, and had an amazing ‘French evening’ the other.” - by Google reviewer, Lisa Kathrin

7. 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat (from USD 616)

I would love to someday stay at 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat and experience luxurious living and breathtaking views. This is the hotel with the highest elevation in the Swiss Alps and provides a secluded location where it offers a slice of paradise from inside and outside.

The hotel features bedrooms that come complete with comfortable and spacious wooden red trim. There is not a single room in the hotel that does not have a breathtaking view of the Matterhorn and the landscape that surrounds it.

Best room with Matterhorn views: Junior Suite with Monte Rosa and Matterhorn View

Alternative room with views: Double Room with Monte Rosa View (views of Monte Rosa)

On-site locations to check out: Panorama Restaurant (views of the mountain), Stellarium (views of Matterhorn and 28 other peaks)

What guests are saying about the view:
“We stayed in the Monte Rosa room, it was such an unique experience, viewing the mountains from windows all around. We got to see a sky full of stars at night(But it was a little cloundy unfortunately). Restaurant view was also amazing. Surely worth the visit.” - by Google reviewer, sixsunss

8. BEAUSiTE Zermatt (from USD 433)

If you’re looking for excellent views alongside some peace and quiet, then Parkhotel Beau Site would be perfect for you. This 4-star hotel offers not only panoramic mountain views but also an indoor pool where you can go for a swim and spa facilities where you can relax and pamper yourself.

It is important to check out the room options online as not all views cover Matterhorn, but we know that our favourite, the Matterhorn Alpine Chic Suite does, but there are many other options available.

Best room with Matterhorn views: Tower Spa Suite

On-site locations to check out: Outdoor infinity pool (views of Matterhorn), sauna (view of Matterhorn)

What guests are saying about the view:
“This summer, I had the opportunity to stay at this hotel with my partner, and the experience was simply wonderful. The hotel stands out for its unique charm, offering clean facilities and attention to detail that exceeded our expectations. What we loved the most was the spa, from where we could enjoy spectacular views of the Matterhorn from both the pool and the sauna. Additionally, the relaxation room is perfectly equipped with individual lights, ideal for diving into reading and relaxation. Our room, with views of the Matterhorn, was spacious, comfortable, and simply impressive. The location of the hotel is excellent. I highly recommend this hotel to those looking for an unforgettable lodging experience.” - by Google reviewer, annabella antelo

9. The Omnia

Nestled on top of a rock, 148 feet (45 metres) above the roofs of central Zermatt, the best view of Matterhorn from this hotel has to be, in our opinion, from the outdoor hot tub. None of the rooms are identical and so they vary in terms of size; some even have a private balcony.

The best private view is from the Matterhorn Suite but there are plenty of lower-priced options available. It is worth noting that there is a minimum stay at the hotel.

Best room with Matterhorn views: Roof Suite

On-site locations to check out: Spa (views of Matterhorn and the village), sun terrace (views of Matterhorn)

Awards: Switzerland’s Leading Boutique Hotel 2024

What guests are saying about the view:
“Exceptional hotel, truly deserves the 5 star rating! Especially we enjoyed the spa facility with the outdoor hot tub facing the mountains. Very welcoming staff members, perfectly cleaned spaces and room, outstanding breakfast service and amazing view from the balcony!” - by Google reviewer, Tania

10. Tradition Julen Hotel (from USD 592)

Tradition Julen Hotel exudes a traditional tavern setting. This 4-star hotel offers rooms that have a private balcony, a perfect place to relax while enjoying the stunning views of the surrounding area. You can get pampered and relax at the same time in the three-story spa area that also features a fitness suite and comfortable seating areas.

The only selected rooms offer the Matterhorn view and the best is the Romantik Double Room. This hotel has such a warm and welcoming atmosphere that you really won’t want to leave.

Best room with Matterhorn views: Panorama Suite

What guests are saying about the view:
“The Matterhorn shots were taken from our balcony of our room. Amazing. We did have to be very patient in viewing the mountain since it was typically covered by clouds the three days we were here. Those are the only cloud free shots we got. Hotel is perfectly located both for viewing the mountain and being near everything. Just far enough from the busy areas but not far from anything.” - by Google reviewer, Greg Carraway
