Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Zermatt

The Pipe
Fancy an informal eatery that doesn't take itself too seriously? Then the Pipe is the place, with a relaxed menu and an even more relaxed clientele.
Pizzeria Roma
Pizzeria Roma serves the tastiest, widest, fattest pizzas in the region. What's not to love?
Sparky’s
Cheap 'n' cheerful Sparky's offers mouthwatering meat and other cheap eats in an intimate, non-smoking atmosphere. Bliss.
Lanna Thai
Looking for tantalising Thai? Call off the search; Lanna Thai offers the best in the biz with awe-inspiring Asian, and then some.
Grampis
Far from gourmet grub, Grampis offers perfect pizzas; forget about high-end and enjoy this place for what it is.
Heimberg
Wine shop-cum-bar-cum-restaurant Heimberg has a focus on wine, and then some. Expect to get sozzled.
Zermatterhoff
The rich and famous flock to Zermatterhoff in their designer-clad droves - and with five golden stars attached to its name, it's not hard to see why.
Chez Gaby
Despite the lack of obvious kitchen, Chezy Gaby serves the kind of meat that would please even the most bloodthirsty of carnivores.
Romantik Hotel Julen
As is suggested by its name, Romantik Hotel Julen has romantic, rustic interiors that would melt the heart of even the most stone-hearted skier.
The Omnia
The Omnia is one of Zermatt's sleekest design hotels; expect cutting-edge minimalism and first-class amenities.
Monte Rosa
The Monte Rosa is a discreet, tucked-away hotel with five-star appeal; so good is it, in fact, that Winston Churchill used to stay here when in town.
Riffelalp Resort
An Hg2 favourite; the Riffelalp Resort has lashings of ski style, all at 2,222-metres up.
Mont Cervin Palace
Mont Cervin Palace is the biggest hotel in town, and proves - once and for all - that size really does matter.
Hotel Sonne
The Hotel Sonne is worth the steep slog up to its entrance; inside are fabulous four-star interiors and a real family-run vibe.
Hotel Alex
The Hotel Alex has all the makings of an Hg2 favourite, with an in-house swimming pool and tennis courts; the rooms aren't half bad, either. In fact, they're rather lovely.
Hotel Bahnhof
Hotel Bahnhof is something of an institution in Zermatt, with a location beside the railway station and dormitory rooms that cater to the student crowd. Who said you can't ski on a shoestring?
Chalet Maurice
Sumptuous and exclusive chalet in a quiet part of town. Only for the really, really wealthy.
Coeur des Alpes
Coeur des Alpes is a beautiful bed-and-breakfast, with cosy interiors and impeccable service.
Chalet Les Anges
Beautiful, luxurious chalet with stunning views of the Matterhorn appeals very much to an upmarket crowd.
