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!
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
This is a smart modern well equipped and clean 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment in a very convenient central location with great mountain views. We had a great week there and would definitely recommend it to others. Anne was very helpful with detailed messages giving advice on local walks and days out.
Excellent apartment in wonderful place
Ann’s apartment is fantastic! We were Family with 2 children there and there was plenty of space for everyone. 2 bathrooms is a great advantage.
Apartment is very clean and comfortable and equipped with all you need and has Matterhorn view!
Location could not be better: very quite and 4 minutes walk from the train station and Gornergrat bahn, 5 min to Sunnegga railway, 1 min to the green line bus station to Furi.
Denner supermarket just 2 min walk.
We had a great time there and hope sometimes to come again. We definitely recommend this apartment!
The Best will you find in Zermatt!
Ann's place was perfect! It was clean and had ALL the amenities one would need. I mean---it had everything! There was plenty of room for at least 4 people, although there were only 2 in our party.
Ann was very quick to respond and explain all the information regarding Zermatt. She even had recommendations of restaurants and things to do for us.
The check in and check out process could not have been any easier.
This place is a 4 minute walk from the train station, so it's very conveniently located. There are a ton of restaurants and shops within 2-5 minutes. There is a taxi stop just around the corner (1 minute by foot) that takes you to the entrance of the cable car used to excel to the Klein Matterhorn (Glacier Paradise).
If you're staying in Zermatt, it can be quite a chore to carry luggage up a hill. The benefit of staying at Ann's place is she is at the bottom of the hill, which makes carrying the luggage from the train station, fairly easy!
There is a spectacular view of the Matterhorn from one bedroom, the living room and one of the 2 balconies! The area is quiet and there are shades and black out curtains in the bedrooms and living room areas, so you will have a peaceful night's sleep on a comfortable bed.
There are 2 bathrooms--1 with just a shower and the other with a bath/shower. The hot water is great and the water pressure is perfect!
Sitting out on the balcony having dinner was the highlight of our stay.
I can't say enough good things about this place. If you're in Zermatt, consider staying at Ann's apartment. You will be glad you did!
You have said it all: thank you so much for pointing out all the advantages the apartment has to offer. And so glad that the highlight of your stay was the Matterhorn watching over you having dinner on the balcony! Hope you will be back.
It's a place not to be missed.
Ann's Place - Haus Imperial is immaculate.
She has put a lot of thoughts into making guest comfortable and enjoyable.
Her entire apartment is fully equipped from the kitchen to the bedroom.
Enough towers/shower gel in each bathroom.
The space in the apartment is fantastic for a good holiday.
Location wise, it is easy to find within walking distance of the BahnHof. 2 nearby Supermarkets.
Down the road, it is near the Ski rental shop and also the Sunnegga ski slopes.
I'm really pleased you enjoyed your time in my apartment in Haus Imperial and that you found everything you needed, and also that you appreciated the location and its proximity to everything! Thank you so much for the review.
Very nice apartment with everything we needed.
This apartment is very close to the train station, has a fabulous view of the Matterhorn, and is warm and cozy. Great place!
So pleased you and the family enjoyed the apartment and thank you for the review.
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!
Zermatt is a car-free village and can only be reached by train, taxi or helicopter. If you are driving you must leave the car in Tasch and proceed by taxi or train. Trolleys for your baggage which you can take onto the train are available in the Parking at Tasch. You can take the train directly from Geneva and Zurich airports and the journey takes around 3 1/2 hours. The train arrives in the centre of the village and depending on your luggage you can walk to the apartment.
Summer activities include walking, hiking, mountain biking, climbing, tennis and volleyball. There is also a Forest Fun Park (accrobranche) and for younger children there is a Wolli park near Sunegga with a play park, lake and a barbeque area.
