“Beautiful Location”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

My wife and I enjoyed 2 nights here. The views were spectacular. I would consider this a hostel, but it is very comfortable if you have that perspective. If you have a car, you can drive to Stechelberg and park there, taking to cable car to Gimmelwald.

We stayed in April 2014. "Hotel" is a misnomer....this is more of a hostel. We were aware it was rustic, but at the rates charged it needs improvements. Lumpy beds, skimpy pillows and towels, and you still need to put a coin in for a shower. The heat only comes on at 10:30 or so, so if you retire before then, you may wake in the middle of the night to a room much too warm! At 100 Swiss franks a night, the hotel is not worth it.

Room Tip: Try the hostel in town or stay in Murren.

On our 1 month Europe trip, Gimmewald and Hotel Mittaghorn were by far the most memorable! We cannot wait to go back one day! We stayed for 3 perfect days. We met wonderful people at the family style dinners. It was such a magical and peaceful place to stay!

My friends and I stayed at Walters place in 2004 and it was a great experience. You can't ask for better scenery than the Mittaghorn mountains. Everyone at the hotel was nice and inviting and the place is full of charm. The food was great as well as the company. I hope to go back again one day soon.

My fourth trip to this place and it gets better every time. The owner Walter is a true gentleman and has incredible stories to share. I hope he never changes the place. His assistant Tim does a great job making sure you get to the place and knows all of the best hiking trails no matter what the weather is like that day. Great job guys!

Loved the location and meeting Walter was the highlight! After hearing his stories I can almost hear the laughter in the bar from years gone by. However...as sad as it is..those days are gone, I think the hotel needs some TLC to bring it back to where is was when I'm assuming Rick Steves gave it a raving review. The view from our room was breathtaking and the town adorable but the rooms could be cleaner and something should be done about the strong smell of kerosine downstairs. The shared bathroom was freezing as well as the rooms which were suppose to have heat starting at 10 pm but ours never came on...all in all it was ok but I would not stay there again!

Spent 3 nights with Walter and Tim in June 2013. Room was charming, even the funky coin shower. Reminded me of boarding school days with timed showers. My husband and I competed with each other to see who could shower without a second coin. Mountain views from our window were stunning. Comfortable beds. Slept like a log. Fresh air, cows with bells walking by. Friendly people outside, and inside with other guests at mealtime. Meals were more than expected for the price.Walter rules the kitchen! Very well cooked and tasty, and wine as well.
Tim was a veritable font of good information and stories about the region. He loaned me some hiking poles for the gorgeous hikes on creaky knees. So fabulous to stay in this dream of a 'Heidi village". No stores or cars. Just a gondola ride...and yes, they take cows on the gondolas. Too funny. Suffice it to say, we enjoyed the stay immensely and would love to return someday. Thank you Walter and Tim.

Room Tip: ask for mountain view room, Try the Swiss raclette at the hostel.
