This small boutique hotel was completely renovated to its charming state by the husband and wife owners. This is an eco-friendly hotel and the renovation shows the thought and environmental responsibility that went into every detail. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast is delicious and great energizer before our Alpine hikes.

Very nice! Friendly owners / complimentary drink for each of us / home Cooke meal of local Swiss cuisine / wonderful breakfast. Easy walk from the train station; the village is small and very pretty (1300 residents. The hotel is a beautifully restored 250 yer old house, there are 8 rooms and each is different. Bed linens were very comfortable.... More

This is probably the best hotel in Andermatt for this price range. Clean and new amenities, well-appointed and lovely bed! We were lucky to get a quiet room facing the river and a good view of the alps in the morning. I loved the wood finishing and furnitures, as well as knowing that the the bathroom was modern and clean... More

We stayed with family and friends over New Year and had a lovely time. The hotel is very well situated in the middle of Andermatt (a small, beautiful village) next to the river. The rooms were perfect for our needs and the children loved the i-pads, bluetooth speakers and the orange juice and cordial/syrup left for guests in the rooms.... More

We stayed here for a night and found the hosts very flexible, accommodative and helpful to the needs of our two small children. They arranged for pickup from the station and drop back, even during heavy snow. Well maintained facility and great food.

We stayed for a weekend and loved the place. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the rooms are very cosy and comfortable. The hotel is located very close to the Gemsstock lift -walking distance- and there are plenty of restaurants around. Breakfast is very complete and well prepared.

Breakfast was delicious, the staff were very nice. Not that sound proof so could hear people above us walking around their room. River is noisy at night so could not sleep with the window open. Double bed was very small and no bath. They left chocolate, apples and a juice in our room which was a very nice touch.

The River House is a unique, welcome mix of modern amenities and style with mountain sensibility and pace. The rooms hit a mark that is difficult to achieve: comfortable and stylish at the same time.

Fantastic boutique hotel in the center on Andermatt. If you like the warm atmosphere of a typical Swiss Chalet, you are right here. The owners did the concept, build the hotel 10 years ago and continue to pamper the guests with the local Swiss Hospitality. The lounge bar is perfect for a drink and the restaurant offers delicious dishes.
