We had an excellent annual trip to Switzerland and decided this time to experience the trendy skiing retreat of Zermatt. The Hotel is a work of art. Between the intricately carved wood panels and the lavish public space and the welcoming woody scent in the hotel, it is beautiful. Our room was just this way as well. Although, there was an unexpected surprise when we looked out the window and low and behold was the village cemetary. Besides that the view was picturesque. The night we spent there consisted of waking up sporatically to tell the obnoxious people downstairs to be respectful of the guests (us!). Other than the rude guests the experience at the hotel Allalin was magnificant. Additionally, the staff there was very helpful and understanding. Probably because our families knowledge of German, but English, French, and Italian are understood, too.
