3100 Hotel Kulmhotel Gornergrat
For an unbeatable location, the prize goes to the 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat, so-called because, at 3,100m above sea level, it's the highest crash pad in the Swiss Alps. All 22 rooms have glorious views over either the Matterhorn or the Monte Rosa massif and its glaciers. Fancy some stargazing? This lofty set-up is also home to the Gornergrat Observatory, a scientific research centre that has drawn astronomers for more than a century.
