Accommodation at Zermatt

Hotel Monte Rosa

Hotel Monte Rosa at Zermatt The Hotel Monte Rosa was the first hotel of the Matterhorn village; opened in 1839 by the village doctor as the only inn with three rooms 'Lauber Inn', it was taken over in 1853 by the Seiler Family and is now part of the Seiler group hotels. Its guests include Edward Whymper, the first conqueror of the Matterhorn, as well as numerous other famous mountaineers. Over the years, the hotel has been extended and refurbished on many occasions and today it meets the standards of a discerning clientele. Despite fundamental transformations it has kept the homely ambience and charm of a turn-of-the century alpine hotel. Various lounges and salons, the historical dining room - one of the most beautiful in the Alps - , the billiard room and the Montrose Bar reflect the aesthetic perception typical for the turn from the 19th to the 20th century.
