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

We spent 10 days at the Riffelalp Resort on a family skiing holiday earlier this year and it was an experience that would be hard to beat. Zermatt as a ski resort is up there with the best of them and the Riffelalp is the icing on the cake. We woke up to views of the Matterhorn. The hotel is... More

We have reviewed this hotel before and described it as Paradise. This visit was very different as we transitioned from a personal experience to one that was a truly family occasion including grandchildren. While we knew that there were facilities for children including outside playground and inside play room, this was the first time we saw it from the child's... More

Get out of the tourist traps of Tasch and Zermatt and go to Riffelalp. This hotel is right at the base of the imposing Matterhorn and offers amazing views and a great launching point for hiking and other outdoor activities. Although it takes some effort to get there, do it! The two on-site restaurants are excellent and truly authentic.

We just spent 3 nights at the wonderful Riffelalp resort. Without asking, we were upgraded to a junior suite with a view of the Matterhorn from our large veranda and bedroom. The room was superior. The entire hotel was rustic elegance. It was great to have an indoor and outdoor spa pool after days of hiking and exploring. The buffet... More

Zermatt was our last stop of our hiking trip through Switzerland and I must say that getting off the train and strolling through the city was disappointing given how touristy it seemed, until we boarded the train to our Hotel Riffelalp! What a gem! We walked from the train to the resort and were greeted by the Matterhorn in all... More
