Summary
Location

The town of Zermatt offers mountain vistas that pop up at every turn.

  • The instantly recognizable Matterhorn can be viewed almost anywhere from the hotel.

    And the biggest advantage - just perfect ski-in / ski-out access, the slopes are right in front of you!

    In summer, the Riffelalp resort could be reached in the probably shortest 5-min tram ride in the world from the Gornergrat station Riffelalp.

    You can arrive to the station from Zermatt in 20 minutes by train.

    In winter, you will be picked up by the porter with the skidoo.

    Other mode of travel to and from the hotel are ski rides via the adjacent Landtunnel trail.

Rooms & Suites

With over 78 luxury guestrooms and a handful of Swiss chalet style suites, the Riffelalp welcomes groups of any size.

  • All rooms have their own living and office spaces, including lavish bathrooms.

    In addition, the rooms sport the latest amenities, such as integrated entertainment systems and Nespresso machines.

    Being a 5-star hotel, the Riffelalp has ample space in all of its rooms, embracing each visitor in Swiss hospitality.

    The suites have their own private balconies.

Pools & Facilities

Spa 2222m distinguishes the Riffelalp from other premium hotels, offering a wide selection of amenities designed for all types of guests.

  • A large outdoor pool provides views of the Alpine mountainside.

    For cold weather, there is a heated indoor pool with whirlpool.

    Steam baths and saunas allow guests to relax after hours of trekking and skiing outdoors.

    Guests can choose between Finnish and organic saunas.

    Unique to this spa are its specialized steam baths that seek to simulate the experience of the outdoors. The Schonbiel cave and the Chriiter-Grotta feature waterfalls, natural rocks, and a cavernous ambience.

    Families and groups with children will also find the game room a welcome experience, providing hours of family fun with a ping pong table, a football table, Nintendo Wii, and PlayStation.

    Other amenities include a gym, relaxation center, billiards room, bowling room, and playground.

Food & Drinks

The Riffelalp features the best of Mediterranean cuisine.

  • Several establishments specialize in crafting certain menus, ensuring that everyone has something to look forward. In winter it offers 3 restaurants, and in summer 2 restaurants and a bar.

    Guests can also enjoy fine dining at the Alexandre or traditional cuisine Raclette at the Walliserkeller.

    For the finest wine selections, Maître d’Hôtel provides guests the best selections from Europe and the world.

While our trip was cut short by the Coronavirus, the staff was fantastic as usual. We always feel at home at the Riffelalp. This was our 8th year and we look forward to returning next year.

We're big fans of the Riffelalp Hotel - the location is wonderful, the rooms are beautiful, and it's a unique experience to be able to ski in and ski out so easily. We were quite surprised by the front office team on arrival, who did everything to accommodate our special wish of being in a matterhorn-facing room in the main building (vs. the historic building where the rooms aren't as cozy and the spa is further away). Lea went above our expectations, and that simple room change made our overall experience so much better. However, what is a shame was the check out with Hannes: After spending CHF 2'000+ for two days, we were not asked how our stay was or our time in Zermatt. It was a very strict procedure to pay the rest of the invoice that had to be paid. But he was kind so I just let it go.... However, after a day of skiing and 2.5 hour drive back home ahead of us, I asked for two bottles of water as we receive in each hotel upon check out (even the 3 and 4 star!) The answer? It costs an extra CHF 3 per bottle... I have to say that was really shocking after the amount we spent. It kind of felt like now that we paid we were no longer important, we could just leave. The hotel should really rework their check out policy as this is the last memory a guest holds of the hotel... and even if the rest of the stay was wonderful, this can really stain the experience. Moreover, what will clients tell their friends and family? This anecdote.
