A really wonderful way to have an adventure in the Swiss Alps. This is hard to describe as a hotel but a very accessible mountain refuge staffed by a very friendly and helpful couple. Don't expect luxury - this is a mountain hut! but for all that it has charm, character, the most beautiful of walks to access it and... More

Hotel du Trift is a sanctuary nestled in the mountains. It's a solid hike to get there, but you can stop midway for refreshments at Edelweiss Hotel. The hosts are warm and helpful. The food and beer is top-notch and I promise you will sleep soundly under many layers of blankets. Leave the tourists behind and be a part of... More

This is one of the most terrific places I have ever been in the mountains. The views are fabulous, the hiking opportunities offer something for every level of mountain experience, the guesthouse itself is really more than a nice place to be. Hugo and his family / team make you really feel like home here. For a guesthouse in the... More

We have been coming to Zermatt for many years and always look forward to our hike up to Trift to see Hugo and Fabienne. They run Hotel Trift and do an amazing job. Hugo is extremely knowledgeable in the local hikes, geography and history. We always learn something new every time we meet with him. Fabienne's home cooking is yummy... More

after a few days in the mountains of Jungfrau, I decided to head down to Zermatt to the see the Matterhorn. I didn't want to stay in the town, as I heard that it is VERY touristy. Luckily I found the hotel du trift! I hopped off the train, stashed my backpack in a locker at the station, and grabbed... More

This is a very well run mountain hut. The owner Hugo and his family make all guests feel very welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are cosy and exactly what one would expect ie simple but comfortable. Fresh bedlinen can be hired and a hot shower is possible. The toilets are spotless and the food was excellent....

This is a gem of a mountain hotel operated by a wonderful family, Hugo and Fabienne Biner and their children. Hugo was an incredibly knowledgeable and welcoming host who made sure my family got the most of our stay at his hotel. He gave us great suggestions for hikes, as well as giving us detailed weather forecasts and at one... More

Now, I should say that I did not actually stay here. However, I did stop here twice while I was walking up the Trift valley and had some of their excellent ice tea and a chat with the owners who were very friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English. The Trift hotel has a wonderful location alone in a beautiful... More
