A story about wishes, ideas and realizations

Since as early as 1975 we have been running Hemizeus, which is located in the beautiful hamlet of Tuftra. We love this house and hope to welcome you in our hotel for many more years.

The most common question from our guests is; what does hemiceus actually mean. Every building in Zermatt needs a name, the hotel consists of three houses with the names Hera Mira Zeus. This gave rise to the abbreviation; Hemizeus.

Read the full story here.

WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

"Beautiful room with a balcony with a wonderful view. Plus a top spa with sunlight while bubbling and in the morning a super breakfast and very nice staff throughout the hotel. Nothing to complain about."

Illona

Hotel Hemizeus offers everything your heart desires. Beautiful and cozy rooms, a great breakfast buffet and a small but nice SPA area. The staff is very helpful and if there is enough snow, you can ski off to the slopes right in front of the hotel. We will surely come back soon!

Sara S

We enjoyed the hospitality of this family-run hotel for a few days. We felt so at home that we preferred not to leave our penthouse apartment! Breakfast buffet and dinner left nothing to be desired! We will be back!

Schmid family

The perfect hotel for our stay in Zermatt.
Already the location of the hotel on the outskirts of Zermatt convinced us immediately with the unobstructed view of the Matterhorn, with the tranquility a little away from the very touristy hustle and bustle in the center and as a super starting point for hikes.
