Hotel Coeur des Alpes Hotel, Zermatt
You will be amazed about the harmony of nature and design in this place. The "Coeur des Alpes" is a total work of art as far as hospitality is concerned. It is intriguing to look at with its linear architecture and its modern interior – cosy and extravagant at once. Guests are warmly welcomed and cared for during their stay. All suites and lofts have enormous scenic windows that command a picture-postcard view of the Matterhorn, Zermatt's famous landmark. In addition to the panorama, you also get a nice view of things below you. The lobby's glass floor lets you look straight down into the pool.
