Spent five nights in August at the Hotel Riffelberg above Zermatt; a wonderful base for many different hikes, comfortable hotel with very good kitchen -- took half pension and loved the dinners. Very friendly management: when I wanted to leave for one night at an Alpine hut, they let me keep my stuff in the room without charging me for that night (even though it was part of my reservation and past cancellation date). It was great being up above the village with terrific views all day and night, the Matterhorn directly in front of the hotel and trails starting from the front door. The Gornergratbahn made it easy to get to other hiking spots around Zermatt on a whim. Highly recommended.
