We chose this hotel because it was a mid-range category hotel close to the ski station of Engelberg. We found it friendly and efficiently run, ideal for families with kids. With around 30 rooms, the hotel has a cozy personal feel. We were immediately impressed by its lovely lounge area with fire place, where guests could relax with an aperitif before dinner or a tea or coffee afterwards. There is no entertainment, so for young people looking for a wild time, you need to look elsewhere in Engelberg. As for the rooms, we took a superior room as we were three people. The room was big enough (23 sq meters), but the bathroom was very small. When sitting on the loo, you almost had your nose against the wall. I am 179 cm tall and it was just ok. If you are much taller than me, you may have a problem. Whether it is the same in the other rooms, I cannot say. Nevertheless, the beds were comfortable and it was very clean. As for the food, breakfast was fine with a small buffet of breads, yoghurt, fruits, eggs and cereals. We noticed that the eggs and milk were delivered from local producers. The only thing that disturbed us was that the orange juice was a cheap sugary watered down 30-50% juice. Such a pity. In the evening, there is one choice only, but the menu is posted in the morning so if you don't like something on it you just need to tell them in the morning and they will try to accommodate you. The food was usually simple and somewhat average (but edible).
