I stayed at the Hotel Rex for 5 nights between 06/08/2012 - 11/08/2012 and this is the third time I have used this hotel during my numerous visits to Zermatt, Switzerland. This trip was the first time I have not been given a room with a balcony at the Rex which was disappointing but the room I was allocated was...

We stayed here for a couple of nights in August 2011, it was their quiet time I believe, not too many people staying at this time. Staff were very friendly and helpfull, nothing was too much trouble. Our room faced away from the Matterhorn, but this wasnt a priority for us. The room was of a good size, plenty big...

We stayed at the Hotel Rex for a week's ski-ing after reading good reviews on Tripadvisor and it certainly lives up to its reputation. Check-in was quick, friendly and efficient. Our superior twin room on the second floor had perfect view of the Matterhorn and was spotlessly clean. Staff were accommodating and friendly and unfazed by our request for summer...

My wife and I stayed here as part of a package holiday and we chose it as a result of TripAdvisor recommendations - it did not disappoint. It is located on the edge of the main centre of the town in a quiet location, but within easy walking distance of everything. The hotel is modern and nicely decorated throughout. Our...

Staying at the Rex came via a personal recommendation, and it did not disappoint. Our room had a fantastic view of the Matterhorn, with a balcony space adequate for two to sit comfortably. We took advantage of the pool area, and although small, was not used by other guests, so there was plenty of room. The breakfast was nice too,...

We throughout enjoyed our stay in this owner-managed hotel. It's located in a quieter zone, but steps from everything. We had room 502, one of two rooms under the roof (the last two floors without a lift, but it was worth climbing up) with a fantastic view over the roofs of the village to the splendid Matterhorn. Our balcony had...

This was the first hotel of my Swiss + France Honeymoon trip , and I had heard enough about European hotel rooms being extremely tiny . But Rex was a pleasant surprise in all aspects. I have had 25 odd hotel stays this year - both official and personal , but the REX hotel staff wins the most courteous staff...

The customer service we received at this hotel was outstanding. It is excellent value, as whilst Zermatt is expensive, this hotel is worth every penny. The reception staff were extremely helpful and professional, and assisted us without hesitation arranging activities, providing advice about the area, and were very friendly and polite. The breakfast was good, and the room very nice,...
