“Good location, good price, good hotel”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

I stayed here as a group of 3 guys, all skiers! Riders is a short walk/warm up to the main lifts in Laax. We stayed on Saturday night, had ear plugs at the ready but we were pleasantly surprised there were not needed. Night club in the basement couldn't be heard on the first floor, and we didn't hear any revelers returning to there room. Maybe not peak season for the party animals but we 40 somethings were happy with our room. Rooms are basic, but functional and clean.
Price is OK this is Switzerland!

From the outside and during the day the hotel looks nice and modern BUT at night it becomes a club and you just can't sleep, no matter what floor you are.

Be aware. We would not come back.

If you are a party animal- go for it.

On the bright side, the rooms were clean but minimal and the location is great.

I was recommended to stay at riders by a friend of mine, an avid snowboarder.
I booked it while still in Zurich.
The room I booked was women dorm.
It had 8 bunk beds in a very small room and was quite crowded because of burton open.
While girls were fun and friendly, the room was clean and convenient to just walk to the lifts of laax.
I found it to be quite small and overly packed for the price I paid per night.
Service was also quite average, but I came from Asia where service is the best.
Also it is a party place. On Saturdays they have rave parties at the bar and if you want to sleep, you need to have noise canceling headset.

Overall I should say average from service and noise perspective, but a great place to meet people like I did being a solo traveler and very good location a 5 min walk to the lifts.

Don't go for breakfast packages, they r overpriced.

Have fun snowboarding.

Room Tip: Don't go for dorms. They r on the same floor with the bar and get a lot of noise. Go for rooms...

Board riders is something quite unique. Part hotel / part coolest hangout in LAAX. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel welcome and at home. Board riders is fortunate to hold one of the prime locations in LAAX, just a hop, skip and a jump from the main lifts you can be sure to catch the first lift up in the morning and get a full day skiing/snowboarding in before heading back for a cold beer and deliberate just how you are going to pack all your stuff back home and move here permanently. Love the place and will be back next year.

A great big thank you to all the awesome people at Riders Palace.

We've been staying at Riders every year for more than 5 years and this is the first time I've got round to writing a review.

This place is awesome. We wouldnt stay anywhere else.
It is a modern, well designed, lively hotel with everything in one place. Could be considered party central from Laax.

Its 10 minutes walk from the gondola and the shops and the restaurants and the bars. So no need bus anywhere. It has a massive bar on ground level, staffed by some of the friendliest people in town, and it has a massive nightclub in the basement.
On that point, noise has never been a issue, even when staying in the blue corridor on ground level, but come on, you dont go to Laax to sleep, you go there to board and to party.
(Anyway, Riders has complimentary earplugs to drown out your mate's snoring. Get some)

We've always stayed in the 5 bed dorms, which is excellent value for money. Comfy beads, good shower, full height window and secure. They provide bedding, towels, soap etc.
Even with 5 blokes in there for 10 days it was fine. Just sit at the bar, chat to the staff and drink "stange" till its your turn to go shower. Seriously, do that, you'll know everyone within 2 days.

Look, the building is cool, but the people make it. We've made lifelong friends there, and we'll go nowhere else.
So a great big thank you to Silke, Lena, Monica, Theresa, Rebecca, Helena, Illa, David, Tony, Mike and everyone that was the 2 weeks either side of New Years, it was awesome!

See you all again soon

We stayed at the Riders over New Year´s and it was the perfect choice! Apart from being a nice and clean hostel with very friendly and helpfull staff the Riders offers you a very well equipped bar and a really nice club (we saw a performance of Bonaparte!). The atmosphere was great thanks to the young und fun staff. The hostel is only 5 mins walking distance from the lift and a big choice of restaurants (ask the reception staff for recommodations!).
Our room was always clean and we had a nice view but we spend most of the time at the bar or in the club anyway.
I can totally recommend the Riders Palace and will definitely come back next season!!!!

We had an excellent time in the riders palace. The rooms are neat and good furnished. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Perfect location due to the short distance to the gondola and restaurants/pubs.

Special place due to the good nightlife at the bar and the hotel owned nightclub.

Can fully recommend the Riders Palace.
