Review 1365: Dent Blanche Apartments, Apartment


Review by Schoggi from AZ

apartments in Zermatt, Valais


2/19/05 - 2/26/05, 1 week


The location was excellent. On a quiet side street close to downtown Zermatt, restaurants, shopping and the train station.

Nearby Amenities

Zermatt is only a walking city. No cars are allowed. To reach the apartment, however, one needed to take an electric taxi. The distance was too great to walk with a lot of bags, ski equipment, etc.

The House/Apartment

The apartments were very clean and well kept. There were, however, two issues.

One of our party rented the loft apartment on the top floor. The elevator shaft shares a wall with the bedroom and made a lot of noise. They did not sleep the whole time we were there. The owner said she knew of the issue but did not seem to care. An easy fix would be to not allow usage of the elevator after 11:00pm at night.

The second issue was in the two room apartment for four people, we had four people and ran out of toilet paper. We had difficulty obtaining additional toilet paper from the owner when we requested it. We know we were expected to buy it ourselves, but we ran out soon after we got there, and the stores were closed.


No garden.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Yes, good quality and comfortable.

Very well equipped.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

The owner handled bookings and was fine.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Yes, but not the loft, or any apartment that adjoined the elevator shaft. Don't expect the owner to be overly friendly or helpful.

Things to do in this area

Skiing, hiking.
