“Old fashioned homely hotel”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Stayed here for three nights in July for my husbands birthday,good location all in all, access to cable cars /mountitlis a short walk away.
The room was large by most hotel standards, but basic in that there was nothing in the mini bar, minimal toiletries in bathroom. The beds were two singles together with seperate duvets, but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fine, nothing too special, but plentiful in supply. Staff were lovely, helpful people, this is a small family run hotel, does what it says on the tin!! The hotel was perfect for our needs so would be happy to recommend.

Room Tip: The corner rooms are much larger and have two balconys, down side streets can be noisy at night.

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.
