Subject: Zermatt hotel
To Pat (from Pat) -- We loved the hotel we stayed in part way up the Gornergrat RR -- at the Riffelalp stop. It was the Hotel Riffelalp, set in a glorious location, with room balconies facing the Matterhorn---what wonderful morning views before the almost inevitable ring of clouds settled over the top. Superb hiking from the door, great food, charming ambiance. Our trip was a few years ago when the hotel was small and quite a bargain; now Seiler Hotel chain has expanded it greatly and, I am sure, raised prices. But I would go there again for that magnificent location--our four days there were the highlight of our Switzerland trip. Cheers, Pat in Baltimore
