The town is a pretty old typical swiss really small resort. Note that I didn't see a pharmacy in town, lots of nice restauranta though. For good skiers and snowboarders the ski runs are really short and very dependant on weather conditions. What made our stay really nice is that it is the first time we skied with our 5... More

Our group of four stayed there for three nights, during the week, in October, and wished we could have stayed for longer. Getting there is a bit of a challenge as finding parking was a little confusing and it took us a couple trips to haul all our stuff. I imagine it's easier to do during the winter months when...

Basecamp had good atmosphere and it provided great place to rest. Sauna was great even in Finnish standards and hot tub outside was cherry on top. Lars was good host and gave some great advice for skiing off piste. Would and will come again if possible!

if you are looking for a good, simple accommodation in Andermatt, this is the place. I say simple but it is not simple, it has everything you need including a sauna with a terrific view as well as an out door Jacuzzi with a lovely view. As well as that, the owner is very helpful, friendly and quick to respond.... More

I stayed here in September with friends as the base for a cycle tour in the region. The place is friendly, clean, well equipped and stylishly furnished. It is also very good value in an otherwise rather expensive area. I would definitely stay here again.

Simple but very nice hotel / hostel. Clean and all things you might need for a long weekend. Kitchen to cook in, sauna, new friends, very close to the slope (0m). Perhaps a bit long to walk to the city but that is no problem.
