Reviewed 25 July 2014

We spent a week in Engelberg amid absolutely spectacular weather, and the Schweizerhof was a great place to stay. It is just a few steps right around the corner from Engelberg's little bahnhof. If you're travelling by train, this is super convenient. It's also located within easy walking distance of the town, shops, restaurants, the monastery and the gondola to Mt. Titlis. We walked everywhere, but there is also a free shuttle bus to get around.

The hotel is not brand new, so if you want super-modern, this is not the place. However, everything was clean and in good repair. We had a spacious and comfortable corner room with balcony and a superb view of the peaks - which we could see very clearly everyday due to our good fortune with fine weather.

The breakfasts were excellent, and our requests for more coffee were met with no problems by the always helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast is served in a delightful, vintage dining room with many photos of Engelberg's past on the walls. There was more than enough food for anyone to fill up for the start of the day, including the normal tasty Swiss bread and rolls, fruit, cheese, cold cuts, muesli, plus scrambled eggs and bacon.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The corner rooms with balcony are really great for the view.

I was here with my family in Sept. & October 2013,
The family room with two bunk beds for children was ideal for us.
The views from the hotel of the surroundings was beautiful.
Everything was closeby.
The Indian restaurant nextdoor was one of the best indian restaurants in Switzerland.
Base of Mount Titlis is a short walk away.
Will surely stay here in future.

We had a large room, by Europe standards which was clean but a little dated. The bathroom is good sized and clean and we had a large balcony around two sides of our room. There is free wifi and a number of English-language Tv stations, and a small refrigerator. We haven't had breakfast yet so I can't review that!

We stayed for two nights and were disappointed. Location is good as it is centrally located in Engelberg, but the furniture is really really old. So old that patterns on the chairs in the room was totally faded and badly stained. TV was flat screen and had great range of channels for just about every nationality. Breakfast was basic with tinned fruit etc. To be fair though, this is a small family run hotel so perhaps should not expect so much. But one thing irritated me...I was sick on one of the days and could not even go out. My wife went out on an excursion (I insisted!) so I was alone all day. When I went down to the reception to get something to eat, they were less than helpful sending me out to a supermarket when I was in a fever.

Fantastic hotel with excellent location near "everything" in Engelberg. It is quite small, but offers different kind of rooms (incl family rooms) and a restaurant. Very friendly service from all of the staff. Have stayed here several times, and it has always been great ! The bathroom is not very modern, but really clean and well-kept. Excellent food in the restaurant and a nice little bar.

Very much near to Mount Titlis and close to a train station. Nice rooms & ever helping staff. For vegetarian Indians, there is a nice restaurant located next door. Even the surrounding area is very good and one can have nice leisure walk.

We recently spent a week at Hotel Schweizerhof and have to say we were very impressed with the hotel, the staff, the layout and the location. Being very close to the train station (only about 250 meters) getting off the train and getting to the hotel takes all of a minute. Yet being that close to the train station we never once heard the trains coming in and out when we were in the room. And being that close to the ski bus (at the train station) makes it easy to get to the mountain in the morning.

The room was very clean and very large, and not large by Europe standards just large. The ski closet was large enough for everyones skies and the boot dryer was a nice touch as well.

The morning breakfast was awesome, plenty of food to energize you for a day on the mountain. The restaurant for dinner was great as well with traditional fondue and other classic meals.

A tip:
If you have a room that faces the street you might get some bleed over sounds at night from people smoking outside.

Room Tip: Non-street views are quitter. First floor has very large balconies.
