“Friendly family-led hotel in central Engelberg”
Reviewed 20 January 2013

For a couple of years we have been staying at Hotel Engelberg during the Christmas holiday. We are a family of 3 with a son who is 9 years old. My wife's mother, brother and uncle were also staying at the hotel. All members and staff of the family-run hotel are really very friendly and welcoming. We felt very comfortable and well taken care of. The hotel also serves excellent food in their restaurant. The hotel is conveniently located in the center of Engelberg.

We recently stayed at Hotel Engelberg for three nights after New Year for some skiing. We found the staff extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful on arrival with a good understanding of English. Prior to our arrival the hotel was able to suggest car parks, connections, ski hire and other important information which helped our stay greatly. Breakfast was good and a reasonable selection of breads, cheeses, ham, cereals and pastries. We enjoyed evening dinner once and sampled the hotel's fine award winning cuisine. The service was great, however there was a tiny bit of confusion regarding the quote they gave prior to our arrival and the bill price. The basic room price is quoted per person, not per room. The management were very swift in finding a suitable solution for both parties. The hotel is dog friendly and allows dogs in the rooms, this is great and was a key reason in us choosing the hotel. I would stay here again on a similar visit to this area.

"Great Experience"
We booked this hotel for out honeymoon in Switzerland. Its the cheap and the best.
The connectivity is good and facilities are amazing. Best part is the location of the hotel, the sight seen is amazing with all the beauty. For the people having less budget, this hotel is fun.
Thank you very much for making our stay so pleasant!!!

We went with a group of 8 people, and I can say that the price for the stay was very good. Some rooms have bathrooms, and ours did not. It was ok anyway, since we were mentally prepared for it. The rooms were a ok size, but the beds are too short for people over 180cm.

We did not try the restaurant, and I would have appreciated a bit more choices for the breakfast - but overall, this hotel is for travellers that needs the basics. A (short) bed to sleep in and breakfast in the morning.

The staff were friendly and the hotel is located in the middle of the town.

We stayed in Hotel Engelberg during our skiing holiday. I booked the hotel via Engelberg web pages for two adults and a child. In the alps, when you a travelling with a child, there is always some excitement about the size of the room. Hotel Engelberg was a pleasant surprise: we had a large room in the topmost floor and our window was facing the Brunni cable car.

We had half board and the quality of food was excellent. The dinner had three courses and a separate menu for child. Also the breakfast was very good, they also had several Swiss cheeses in the breakfast buffet. New years buffet was huge!

The staff was very friendly. The rooms are clean. The hotel is located on the pedestrian zone, so there is no noise coming from cars. There is a short was to the ski buss and to the train station. I can truly recommend this hotel to anyone. It is not five star, but it is very cosy and comfortable.

We were very happy with our experience at the Minotel Engelberg, from the moment we checked-in until the moment we checked-out. The rooms were not as updated as we had expected based on the website's claim; however, they were exceptionally clean and comfortable, including the bathrooms and shower room which were cleaned throughout the day. The breakfast was simple, but very filling - for three days we never had to stop skiing to eat lunch. The staff was delightfully friendly and helpful. Due to the age of the building we were concerned about the potential for noise; however, this was never a problem. The guests were very respectful of each other and even though our room overlooked the main street it was completely quiet thanks to the new insulated windows! The room temperature was consistently comfortable and there was always hot water in the shower (great water pressure too!). If you are looking for a 4 star resort this isn't the place for you, but if you don't mind having to walk down the hall to take a shower or use the bathroom then by all means book a room! I was curious to see what the experience would be like and I am happy to say that I will come back and stay here again! I would highly recommend staying here!!!

  • Liked — How clean everything was.
