Ask any seasoned skier to describe the mountains in Andermatt, and they’ll tell you two things: it’s steep and it’s deep. The skiing takes place largely between Gemsstock mountain and the sunnier, somewhat more beginner-friendly Nätschen, connecting to Sedrun. Accommodation options allowing you to reach both areas are in no short supply – from comfy youth hostels and eco-boutiques to game-changing five-star hotels. Alpine charm and Michelin-starred restaurants await beneath the ski slopes while these are the best hotels in Andermatt, Switzerland – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. The Chedi Andermatt

Designed by the Kuala Lumpur-based Jean-Michel Gathy, the multi-award-winning Chedi Andermatt combines Swiss chic and Asian aesthetics without sacrificing alpine charm. Dark wood and fireplaces meet softly lit paper lamps and a Michelin-star Japanese restaurant. The Spa and Health Club boasts a 35m (115ft) pool in a glasshouse, a heated outdoor pool, organic saunas and complimentary yoga. In-house “ski butlers” will even have your boots warmed and waiting for when you’re ready to get back on the slopes.

2. The River House Boutique Hotel

The River House is a hotel with a focus on traditional decor (old wood panelling and ski artefacts) and a serious commitment to sustainability. The bed linen and towels are made from 100% organic cotton, while eco-friendly geothermal heating is used throughout the hotel. There’s also an in-house recycling programme, and the food is regional and fresh. The River House bar is home to Whisky Club Andermatt – so keep an eye out for their whisky tastings.

3. Hotel Postigliun

A wonderful showcase of the traditional architecture of the Canton of Grisons, Hotel Postigliun in the centre of Sedrun, oozes mountain retreat inside and out. It’s the kind of place you’d expect in a Netflix Christmas special. The Fernando family, who run it, offer wood-fired pizzas, regional games and Asian specialities. They have nine guest rooms, and the Sedrun-Oberalp ski area is a 10-minute drive away.

4. Chalet Stella Alpina Hotel and Wellness Spa

A historic mountain chalet near the Nufenen Pass, the Stella Alpina, dating back to 1898, was renovated in 2010 but has managed to keep that old character intact. The rooms boast panoramic views of the valley, and the wellness area has a sauna and jacuzzi for rewarding those legs after a big day out. If you’re looking for a day away from the chairlifts and downhill, Stella Alpina also runs snowshoeing and cross-country excursions, starting just 200m (655ft) from the hotel.

5. Radisson Blu Andermatt

A modern take on the Swiss chalet, the Radisson Blu is a reliable all-rounder. It’s a short walk from the village centre and the ski lifts and comes with an on-site pool and spa. If you’re here on business, you’ll find six meeting rooms and a conference hall suitable for up to 700, making it perfect for a company getaway. There’s also a great terrace for a morning coffee before exploring the slopes of Andermatt, Sedrun and Disentis.

6. Mountain Lodge Sedrun

Run by hoteliers Serena and Michele, “Swiss mountains and Italian charm” is the motto at Mountain Lodge Sedrun. The rooms are simple but stylish, with festive decor and warm lighting. Down in the community lounge, the fireplace burns bright amongst comfy couches. The lounge has a self-catered bar, games consoles, table games and tends to be bubbling with conversation. It’s a great spot to grab an après beer and watch back the GoPro footage of your friend falling down the slopes.

7. Jugendherberge Hospental

Hostel, Hotel

Hospental youth hostel, in the heart of the Urseren Valley, has two quadruple rooms, perfect for small families, two six-person rooms and three larger dorms. Sitting between the Gotthard, Furka and Oberalp pass, it’s a great place to stay if you’re keen to ski somewhere different each day – or for meeting pals to hunt powder with on the nearby Gemsstock or in the Galenstock.

8. Hotel and Restaurant Zum Schwarzen Bären


The Bären is a charming refurbished Swiss chalet, with chopped wood piled high on either side of the entrance. The rooms are bright, with wooden beams, alpine flooring and modern Eames furniture, but the big pull is the gourmet restaurant. It serves upscale Ticino cuisine with French and Italian influences and has been awarded 13 Gault Millau points. Extra bonus? The hotel is also only 100m (330ft) from the Gemsstockbahn cable car.
