It’s finally here. The hotel rating guide by Karl Wild has now been published. Once again, Zermatt’s hotel landscape is top of the list. Eleven out of the 125 rated hotels in Switzerland are located in Zermatt - a wonderful achievement. On top of that, Zermatt is also home to the best concierge in the whole of Switzerland.
