We spent Christmas in Zermatt and loved our stay here. We have a family of 5 with kids. We stayed in one room that had 4 beds that fit the whole family. It was such a great value compared to the other hotels.

Hotel Capricorn is a very good value for money hotel in the heart of Zermatt. The single rooms are not huge, but very comfortable with comfortable beds. The Matterhorn view rooms are definitely worth the extra money. The breakfast spread is really nice with very good coffee.

"We had a room with a view of the Matterhorn and it was magnificent."
"Fanstastic Views. I would ask for a room in the remodeled section!"
"If you can afford it get a room with a direct view of the Matterhorn"
"Maybe nearly all rooms have a Matterhorn view, but ask for one just in case!"
"If you want a view of the Matterhorn consider upgrading to a superior room. However Room 101 was more than adequate for our needs."
