We spent a lovely week at the River House hotel. It is a beautifully renovated property which mixes modern comfort with tradition perfectly. The evening food was delicious and the bar superb. We were particularly impressed by the comfort of our bed and loved our room.

This boutique styled hotel is situated on the main street of Andermatt a few min walk from the small train station one way and some minutes to the Gemsstock lift the other direction. The owners did a good job renovating this building a few years ago. The hotel has a modern-traditional Swiss look. There is a nice Bar at the...

Hard to know where to start with this review everything was excellent, just go , you will love it. Not a downside, but if stairs are a issue for you you might want to pass as all the rooms are up a winding staircase and there is no lift

This place has been my go too for the past two months. The food never ceases to amaze me. The staff is awesome and the atmosphere is delightful. They always have a different weekly burger special served with a fresh salad or country cuts or soup(yes soup). If ever you are in Andermatt try their food you wont be disappointed...

I was extremely pleased with my stay at the River House Boutique Hotel. I was looking for a "typical" Swiss experience in the Alps, where I could have a cheese fondue and go skiing in between work meetings in Northern Italy and Zurich. It was a beautiful drive into Andermatt, and this hotel is in the very heart of the...

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....
