We had a two night stay in the Riffelalp hotel in August 2014. This was my second visit to Zermatt and I would say this hotel has amazing views of the Matterhorn. You can relax in the pool just staring at the majestic mountain and watch it change colour as the sun sets. The hotel staff were very helpful and... More

We did not stay at this hotel but went for dinner one evening and fell in love with it. It was so warm, fantastic bar and set high up, it felt like a set from a James bond movie. Dinner was in the cellars , it was the best meal we ate all week ,and great service. Finished off with... More

Take the obvious things aside first of all, of being up a mountain, the stunning views, the great hotel....the number one thing to comment on about the hotel first of all is the service. Absolutely first class, with all members of the Riffelalp team doing as much and more to make your stay memorable. I'm sorry, as I didn't catch... More

This hotel is a luxury hotel above Zermatt with amazing views of the Matterhorn. It is located at 2222m right at the tree line and is only reachable by a mountain train. There were some things I really liked about the hotel: * The amazing view from the room's balcony of the Matterhorn and the surrounding mountains - beautiful, relaxing... More

The view on the Matterhorm is just amazing. The infrastructure and interiors are of highest quality, and still cozy and warm. The spa is great and the pool with view on the Matterhorn fantastic. Very quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful. You feel that the luxury here is based on intrinsic quality. Switzerland at its best!

We honeymooned here 20 years ago and the place is so dramatically different today. It hasn't lost it's charm but is 100 times larger, fancier, and has a full service spa. The service and food were great! We love this hotel for it's location though. It's away from the busy Zermatt yet simple to get to and you can hike... More

For our 19 anniversary we spent 8 nights in a junior suit overlooking the Matterhorn. I have stayed at plenty of hotels claiming to be five stars and while some of them were nice there was always something keeping it from being perfect. This hotel and their staff will do everything in their power to make your stay perfect. The... More

The Riffelalp resort was totally rebuilt after a fire about 10 years ago. While it has all new interior, the charm was not lost. It is a short train ride from Zermatt. At 2222 meters with a breathtaking view of the Matterhorn, it is an excellent choice for a luxury hotel. The staff is very attentive and helpful. There is... More

A wonderful weekend stay with a great service. The staff took special care from my arrival in the main station until my departure to arrange everything to the perfection always offering their best. The room had everything you can expect for this class of hotel with stunning views. The location is wonderful, although remote but offers such a peaceful environment... More
