Wonderful cozy room, nice bathroom, Nespresso coffe in the morning just around the corner. Warm welcome and a nice bar with a free welcome drink! ich würde jederzeit wiederkommen für 1-3 Nächte. Für einen längeren Aufenthalt ist das Zimmer 1 zu klein.

A nice and charming place to stay in Andermatt, small, simple and comfortable. Just one little negative on the room facing the main street. It is unfortunate that clients from the bar next door are talking loud, shooting and making a lot of noise in the middle of the night. I recommend to book a room on the river side,...

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....

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...

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....

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.

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.
