Arrive and feel comfortable

Our rooms highlight the different characters of Switzerland in accordance with the Swissflair motto. Every room is dedicated to a canton, and every floor highlights a different region of Switzerland. Their furnishings combine modern design linked with the traditional elements of a bright and warm atmosphere.

We have different types of rooms varying in size, furnishings and style, entirely geared to the needs and wishes of our guests.

Some rooms offer a fantastic view of the Matterhorn.

Island of wellness in the Valais Alps

At the “Aristella” you will find a place which is ideally suited to end an active holiday in the most pleasant manner: our wellness oasis! The design of the spa complex is a tribute to the alpine lakes. Warm wood elements characterise the facility.

Our “sauna with a view” vies with the uniqueness of the relaxation room, where you can also enjoy a wonderful view of the beautiful village of Zermatt and the magnificent Matterhorn from its ergonomic lounge chairs.

But before you take a rest you can splash around: two whirlpools, a steam bath, heated footbath, bucket shower and a splash shower are great for the body and soul – so you can enjoy the evening while feeling invigorated and relaxed!

We gladly and proudly run this cosy four-star hotel in our hometown of Zermatt. We feel deeply connected to Zermatt and all of Switzerland, and that is why we gladly uphold local traditions – in everyday hotel life as well as privately! For example, we are active members in the Fife & Drum Association, and we also belong to the organisation known as “Zermatt Alphorn Friends”.

As locals, we know the most exciting stories about our village, its most beautiful corners, the best ski slopes in the area and the greatest excursion destinations like the back of our hand – we will gladly share valuable tips with you! If nothing else, Bernard Perren’s training as a qualified Swiss snow sports instructor should be quite helpful.

We have also been able to augment the advantages of our hotel through the extension and renovation implemented in 2010. With great passion and professionalism we do our utmost every day so that you enjoy a beautiful stay. We look forward to inspiring you with our passionate enthusiasm for Zermatt!


Hotel Aristella was built in 1964 by Elsbeth and Manfred Perren, Bernard’s parents. They ran the then-3-star hotel with great love and dedication. Then in 2010 we decided to renovate and extend the hotel. After a short but intensive construction period, we were already able to welcome the first guests in December. During this time we change the style of the hotel into a stylish 4-star hotel, and at the same time we were able to follow in great footsteps as a very young family.

Zermatt is a popular mountain village for skiers, climbers and hikers. The village is located at an elevation of 1,600 metres at the foot of the famous, majestic Matterhorn, surrounded by 29 other 4,000-metre mountains in the southern German-speaking canton of Valais (Wallis). On Bahnhofstrasse, the main street in Zermatt, you will find boutiques, restaurants and smaller shops to discover while taking a stroll. Together with Cervinia in Italy we offer skiers or snowboarders the suitable slope, with about 360 kilometres of ski slopes in total. In addition, there are public, unroofed rinks for ice skating, curling and ice stock sport.

Gourmets get their full money’s worth year-round here in Zermatt. In the village as well as in the mountains you can enjoy a gourmet offer like hardly any other. The hearts of connoisseurs quickly beat faster here!
