About Hotel Lo Stambecco

Situated in an incredible position, 2550 metres above sea level and at the very base of the ski lifts, Hotel Lo Stambecco Hotel offers clean and basic accommodation in the shadow of the Matterhorn.

The rooms are simply furnished, with lovely wood panelling, and include private bathrooms, TV’s, telephones and some of the most breathtaking views in the Alps.

The hotel can only be accessed by cable car, and features a reading room, a games room and a reception that will assist with ski passes and booking tours. An entertainment program for both children and adults is offered.

The restaurant serves typical Alpine cuisine, with a focus on locally sourced ingredients.

The main attraction is undoubtedly the skiing. The slopes are so close that if you happen to fall out of bed you’ll be right on them, so it’s best to sleep in your ski suit.

Positive Reviews

Incredible and unique location

While not all guests were fans of the location, the majority certainly were. They liked both the dramatic site, so far above the valley, but even more, they really liked the genuinely ski-in/ski-out position. A few mentioned that staying up the mountain saved at least an hour a day that they would have had to  spend in the cable car queue.

Friendly and helpful staff

With very few exceptions the staff at the hotel were described as very friendly and helpful, always wiling to go out of their way to serve the guests.

Excellent food at the restaurant

Some guests were a little apprehensive about booking this hotel, because its position essentially forced them to eat breakfast and dinner at the hotel. They were worried that they would be stuck if they didn't like it. Happily, the overwhelming majority of guests describe the food as ample in quantity, very tasty, and excellent value to boot.

Negative Reviews

Décor a little dated

This was by far the most common complaint aired by guests. The décor was described as being in dire need of a major update. There were also a couple of guests who mentioned items in their room not working.

A bit isolated for some

While most guests loved the dramatic location at the top of the cable car, it was not entirely without its costs. To some guests the remote location meant that they missed out on nightlife, and found it awkward to get down to the base when they wanted to.

Problems with the heating

Surprisingly, several guests spoke of problems with the heating in their rooms. It seemed to go a bit haywire, first kicking in and making the room uncomfortably hot, only to then shut down entirely and plunge the room into the depths of frigidity.
