Disclaimer: I proposed to my girlfriend here and the place and experience was everything I had hoped for. This was our first time staying in a luxury hotel of this caliber and I definitely plan on coming back sometime in my lifetime. The hotel location and ambiance is simply something I have never experienced before in my life. The location...

I have stayed at 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat three times. That is wonderful stay experience and highly recommend to stay 1 night at least. You can see amazing view of Matterhorn and fabulous surrounds day and night. If the weather is good, you have to get up early to see the amazing sunrise over the Matterhorn, the sunset over Monta Rosa...

Absolutely fantastic location, full marks with breathtaking views on Matterhorn and Monte Rosa and glacier. Sunrise and sunset are a sight to behold. The ride up on the cogwheel train (only way up unless you like hiking mountains with luggage) was very pricey but unique. Reception is just 1 desk/speaker stand next to the stairwell but very informative hosts who...

Cons: Very small room and bathroom. Dinner was rather basic. The candles lit at the restaurant, clearly for the ambience, were making me feeling 'short of breath' as a result of both high altitude and limited ventilation. Junior staffer at reception was rather unhelpful, if not culturally insensitive nor discriminatory, when handling miscommunication which dragged on and on. Pros: Amazing...

Stayed for one night before Christmas. Full moon in December just a month after the big moon night in November this year. It was such a fantastic stay -- the front desk staff was very welcoming and friendly, the dinner room staff were amazingly patient and the food was great -- and besides, as I had to leave with the...

What an experience to spend a night at 3100m surrounded by breathtaking a mountain range while still enjoying the comfort of a first class hotel. A worthwhile and unique (side) trip for couples and families alike. However, be aware of the height and subsequently thinner air!

That’s always our travel preference, so we decided to treat ourselves to 2 nights in the Gornergrat Hotel. We’re regular summer visitors to Zermatt and have joined the day-trippers up the mountain a few times in the past. However, although that gave us the lovely views, the experience once the trains have stopped provides those views with a quietness that...

because of food. Dinner was like shabu-shabu? that we had our country. I expected to have some swiss food course. Even though it has absolutly perfect view of matthorn so it worth every penny, if room rate is around 350fr, the food should be better!

Unique place for a hotel. Great views especially during sunrise and sunset (depending on weather off course). Nice comfortable rooms but way to expensive. Food quality is really bad. No bar in the hotel.

We arrived on top of the Gornergrat - 3'100m - about noon on a sunny summer day. The view around to all the uncountable mountains (most of them over 4'000m) is majestic and grandiose. In earlier years we were here for skiing and had not so much time to look around. But this time we enjoyed everything. The good food...
