    I went to Zermatt last year and stayed at hotel CERVO Zermatt, and it was very nice experience! The hotel is not very close to the city centre, but provides convenient path to bring guests there. The food and spa were fantastic! If you happen to stay there, you should try to have a dinner at there restaurant outdoor, facing the Matterhorn. It was unforgettably AMAZING!!!
