Scout tips

  • Connecting rooms available
  • There is a surcharge for using the spa


Hotel Welschen perfectly combines rustic alpine styling and modern touches to create a relaxing atmosphere with all the conveniences of a great, friendly ski hotel. The small hotel lounge includes comfy sofas and a roaring open fireplace which is a wonderful place to unwind and warm up after a day on the slopes.

The dining room at Hotel Welschen has huge picture windows which offer spectacular alpine views. The restaurant serves up a breakfast buffet of hot and cold cuisine and some dishes (such as scrambled eggs) can be made-to-order.

There is a connecting spa and wellness center which can be used at a surcharge. The spa includes a steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi and the intriguingly-named ‘fun shower’. Although there is an additional fee for the spa, it can be included as part of a wellness package.

Hotel Welschen provides a range of room options from simple hotel rooms to studios and apartments so there is something for everyone. The apartments (called Haus Hornligrat) are modern and stylish and allow guests to enjoy a self-catered ski vacation. They have a full kitchen and spacious living rooms most of which have spectacular views of the Matterhorn. The apartments also have washer/dryers.

One of the best aspects of Hotel Welschen adn the apartments is the location. While the hotel is perched up high, allowing it to enjoy Matterhorn views, it has a lift that accesses a road below. From there it's a 1 minute walk down the road or some stairs to the entrance of the Sunnegga lift accessing the mountains. It is a further 10 minute walk across the river and up a hill to get to the main street. There is a supermarket about a 5-minute walk from the hotel.

Who should stay here

Hotel Welschen is great for solo travellers, couples, families and friends. Thanks to the different rooming options everyone can find accommodation to suit their needs and preferences. 

Scout Customer Reviews

We absolutely LOVED staying at the ‘Haus Hörnligrat Apartments’. The good vibes started when the owner of the Hotel (Weshen) & apartments collected us at the train station in his electric car – the kids loved the novelty of it! As soon as we opened the door to our apartment – it was a gloriously ‘WOW’ factor! The kids were just as excited as us and quickly went and checked out their rooms to find that they each had their own robes and fluffy slippers – seriously happy campers! It’s the little things! Meanwhile, I could not tear myself away from the 180 view of the surrounding mountains, village and of course the Matterhorn, it was breathtaking. The apartment was very sleek & modern. The kitchen, laundry, bathrooms were all very well equipped with all the necessary amenities that travelling families need when they finally reach their destination. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone planning on visiting Zermatt! We would definitely stay there again. Most importantly, the apartment was positioned footsteps from the village and also from the Sunnegga Express (up to the ski fields) which was just a 2-minute walk away – you need to be this close when you have young kids and all the ski gear to carry….!!
