“Great location, nice front office staff. Rooms are a bit dated.”
Reviewed 23 November 2010

Hotel's location was wonderful if you are training to Grindelwald. It's only about 25m away from the train station. It's also central to the shops and restaurants.

The staff were very nice and accommodating. They spoke perfect english and were able to point us in the right direction.

The facilities themselves are a bit dated. Typical european quality, not a 4 star in American standards. The furnishings are 'Swiss' with lots of wood accents. The bonus was the rooms were really large, ours included a sitting area with two chairs, plus a balcony with two chairs. We also had a fabulous view towards the Eiger/Jungfrau. I'm not sure if thats normally an upgrade. The spa area was interesting; a very nice sauna and cold showers but the steam room and whirlpool were older and not very nice.

One thing to note more about Grindelwald; The offseason is a great time to visit if you want to spare the crowds. Just be aware that not all the hotels are open (this one was!) and that also a lot of restaurants are closed (this hotel's was open and delicious). I wouldn't choose to come back again in November because i'd rather be able to hike or ski, but if you just want to see the mountains its a great time.

My husband and I were here for 2 nights on a recent hiking trip. We found the staff VERY friendly and helpful with hiking trail suggestions, train schedules, etc. The room was a bit tired, but clean. And the bathroom looked as though it was recently updated. Beds were comfortable - and the restaurant was very good. Overall - very happy with the hotel. And the hiking around Grindelwald was some of the best!

Switzerland is one of 10 countries I've visited since I begin international traveling. I visited Switzerland in 2009 on a group hiking tour. Of last year's group, three of us decided to return on our own using our previous tour leader's projected 2010 trips . One of the ladies I traveled with picked up the ball and planned the two week trip and selected hotels based on each other's experience and other recommendations. We started in Zurich, and onto Interlaken and Grindelwald before going back to Zurich for our last overnite before returning to the U.S. The Hotel Kreuz & Post (none of us had heard of or stayed ) was the ultimate in location from the bahnhoff (walkling distance). The package accommodations included breakfast & dinner, Spa availability, a modernized hotel yet retaining its character, view from terrace was spectacular, rooms were immaculate, service beyond what I have received in higher rated hotels, and the Staff was exceptionally friendly, warm and attentive to all of our needs. Specifically, for me, their care went beyond the expected. I came down with a flu/stomach virus of some kind that rendered me so sick I had to stay in my room for almost two days. The care and concern expressed by all including the owner of the hotel was compassionate and consistent until our day of departure. That concern cannot be measured in money, only in goodness of people. I highly suggest to others, particularly Americans to come to Switzerland, the friendliest people I have come across in my travels and in particular, to hike the beautiful Alps by using Grindelwald as your base.

excellent value for money. Great location. Jacuzzi helped unwind after a long hectic day. Breakfast served in the room for no extra cost. Rooms were spacious, got a balcony facing the mountains. Staff was very efficient and helpful.

This small, cosy hotel situated among mountains. The view through the windows of this hotel was very amusing. The service was good. People on reception were very kind and always ready to help you. The room is very neat , tidy and has a beautiful balcony. On the first floor you can have a small restaurant, with interesting furniture and kind waiters. I had a pleasure to stay in this Hotel.
