Hotel Bellerive

Zermatt, Switzerland

Sleekly modern yet warm with rustic Alpine touches, Hotel Bellerive is a chic hideaway centrally located in Zermatt. With its chalet-style structure, central lobby fireplace and relaxed atmosphere, this boutique hotel presents a family-run feeling in a stylish space.

The hotel is located within a ten-minute walk to all the main sights, including the Glacier Paradise Cable Cars and the Sunnegga Express. It also operates a convenient electric shuttle to the train station, an important touch since Zermatt is a car-free resort.

Each of the 25 rooms and suites is individually designed to give a feeling of comfort, with contemporary furnishings in soft neutral tones, fuzzy blankets and rustic wood accents. The south-facing rooms boast views of the Matterhorn through their large windows or from balconies.

While Hotel Bellerive does not have a full restaurant, it does serve an excellent buffet breakfast featuring local meats, cheeses and pastries. The hotel also sets out sandwiches for picnic lunches, should you wish to take some on the go to your mountain adventures.

There is also a small spa with a sauna, Jacuzzi and massage available.

OUR OPINION:

We love Bellerive for its convenient location, friendly atmosphere and stylish interiors. The hotel’s extra touches, like complimentary fresh fruit, set it apart.

Rooms

All 25 rooms are warmly furnished with plush mattresses and feather pillows, with rustic wood featured throughout. Wi-Fi, espresso machines, minibars, robes and slippers all come as standard, and dogs are welcomed in all rooms.

The Chic rooms offer showers and north-facing balconies. The Deluxe rooms have seating areas, French doors and south-facing balconies; an upgrade to the Panorama Deluxe gets you Matterhorn views.

The Junior suites all have a spacious living area in addition to the bedroom. Two of them offer a separate bathtub in the room, and the other has a fireplace.

The singular Sky Room offers floor-to-ceiling windows, a skylit bathtub in a loft and the chance to watch the sun set over the Matterhorn from your bed.
