I have been going to Zermatt for over 20 years and have definitely fallen under its spell. The mighty Matterhorn towering above the little village can leave no one indifferent. I bought my first property in 1994 and this is where I live now, when I'm not in Geneva. My hometown was Wimbledon and I still return there on the special occasion that takes place at the end of June/beginning of July.
Ann purchased this Apartment in 2001
Why Ann chose Zermatt
I bought the Imperial property in 2001 and then proceeded to renovate it into an apartment I would have liked to have rented myself: two bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, close to the village and everything else. Later I added the studio which is next door with the idea that it would be nice for people to have a nanny or a granny close by, but not necessarily too close.
What makes this Apartment unique
Everyone who has stayed in this property raves about it. Skiing in general is very hectic, and the logistics of getting to Zermatt are somewhat complicated...but oh so worth it. The proximity of this accommodation to everything important really helps to hit the snow running...and then keep running all week. The visitors book is a joy to read... or should I say the online reviews!
Everything we wanted
We had a wonderful holiday in Zermatt enhanced by this well equipped central apartment. Everything is close and the view from the balcony of the Matterhorn is just as the picture shows. We spent one day in Fiesch and climbed above the clouds to see Aletsch glacier- breathtaking! I will definitely be recommending this apartment to any friends visiting Zermatt.
Thank you for taking the time to review and so pleased you liked the studio, its proximity to everything and the amazing view!
Everything was well appointed and just as described. This was a perfect place to stay for our group of 5, and conveniently located near the train station, the town, and access to skiing. Thank you so much, Ann! We had a wonderful stay.
Thanks for taking the time to write this very nice review and pointing out that everything was as described....very helpful for future guests! So glad you all had a good time and come back soon!
Ann was wonderful! She promptly and politely answered my many questions. Excellent!
The apartment is close to the train station and very centrally located. The view of the Matterhorn from the main balcony is stunning!
I really appreciate you taking the time to write a review and am so pleased it worked out well for your family. Come back any time!
Soaked up the Matterhorn
Ann's flat was a treat to return from the trails to every day. My wife loved the superb view of the Matterhorn from her bed and the large bathtub where she soaked after full days on the trails. The flat was spacious with decks front and back, the kitchen well equipped, and it was conveniently located near markets and the train station.
Ann dropped by and offered some helpful tips on hikes and eateries.
Glad it worked so well for you and that your wife appreciated the view and the well-deserved bath! Look forward to seeing you back soon and thank you very much for the review.
Wonderful walking holiday in Zermatt
Haus Imperial is quiet, comfortable, well-appointed and close to all the Zermatt facilities, with fantastic Matterhorn views from the lounge and bedroom balconies. It is just a couple of minutes walk from the railway station and supermarket, and yet is a very peaceful location as it is located on a footpath. Lying in bed at night all we could hear was the sound of the river, the Vispa, that flows pass the end of the street. Zermatt is a beautiful place, in a superb location, with lots to see and do. As a family we had a wonderful walking holiday, doing lots of exploring, including climbing the Rothorn and climbing up to the Matterhorn base camp. We also enjoyed swimming in the mountain lakes, seeing lots of marmots in the wild and visiting beautiful mountain cafes in stunning locations. The children enjoyed riding in the gondolas, Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, the suspension bridge and the Alpine Adventure Park and we all loved the glacier walk. We thoroughly recommend it!

Thank you for submitting such a comprehensive and appreciative review and I hope you will be back for more exploring soon.
Perfect cozy apartment, close to everything, great views
This place seemed great on VRBO and in fact was even better than we thought!
A very reasonably priced two bed two bath apartment, minutes from the train station, the Gornergrat Bahn and the city center, with views of the Matterhorn from the balcony.
We had a perfect four day stay here (2 adults, 2 kids - pre-teen and teen) and would love to come back soon.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write that very nice review. I am pleased you appreciated the apartment and I look forward to welcoming you back soon.
