Where to stay in Andermatt: best hotels in the Swiss Alps
From design-lead boutique hotels to rustic Alpine lodges, Andermatt has accommodation to suit most tastes and budgets – and that’s before we come to the Chedi Andermatt, Andermatt Swiss Alps‘ flagship hotel, which opens towards the end of 2013. But if you can’t wait till then – and with all the glories of an Alpine summer ahead, why would you? – here is our selection of the best places to stay in Andermatt.
* The River House: Andermatt’s best boutique hotel combines original features (the building is 250 years old) with slick contemporary design. If it’s space you’re after, the very spacious 7th Heaven suite is what you want to book.
* Bären: Housed in one of Andermatt’s oldest buildings, renovated recently in accordance with the ‘Sustainable Andermatt’ project criteria, Bären is the perfect alpine retreat which, also serves some of the most refined food in town.
* Hotel Schlüssel Andermatt: Centrally located, Hotel Schlüssel is just a 5 minute walk from Anderatt Train Station and is in the perfect location to reach the Nätschen and Gemsstock ski lifts. Each room as well as having modern services also has a balcony, which means guests can enjoy a panoramic view of the mountains. All rooms were newly renovated in 2012 and kitted out with ‘soft sleep’ mattresses, making it the ideal spot to rest your head after a day on the slopes.
* Three Kings: don’t expect cutting-edge design from this quintessentially Alpine retreat – just traditional hospitality. The spa also offers a tried-and-tested combination of sauna, sanarium and jacuzzi to soothe you after a day’s skiing, hiking or cycling.
* Hotel Monopol: this is a traditional hotel offering a warm welcome. Its La Curva bar is one of the best spots for après-ski, while the rooms are quiet and cosy. Apartments for families and larger groups are also available.
* Piz Calmot: set apart from the village, Piz Calmot is rustic guesthouse in the centuries-old Alpine tradition. No-frills, budget rooms mean you can focus on the great outdoors.
The Chedi Andermatt, meanwhile, is nearing completion and is on target to open December 6th 2013 – read more about the latest Chedi in Europe and keep up-to-date with construction here.
