“Well located, friendly staff, breakfast needs improving”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

We stayed for a very last minute winter holiday over new year. The hotel is well located. Very close to the railway and bus stations. There is ample parking behind the hotel. If you are a good skier you can ski down to within about 50m of the hotel from Grindelwald Fitprst following a yellow run down the mountain.
The staff were very friendly and could not do enough to help you. There is a fantastic view of the town and the mountains from the upper floors. Breakfast was a little sparse with not manyoptions beyond cereal bread, cheese, and meats. I have certainy stayed in other swiss three star hotels with more selection.

Overall an excellent hotel in a good location.

Room Tip: For the best views choose the paper floors.

We stay 3nights here from 17th Dec to 18th Dec.
The hotel is off the main street where Grindelwald station is. Resturants and Supermaket Coop is about 5mins away. Very convenient.

If you drive, front wheel drive or 4 wheel drive is reccomended to Grindelwald. Hotel is up slope during some weather conditions can be slippery. Reccomend Winter tyres during winters.

Hotel Restaurant serve nice food but not open some days. Few Restuarant down the main street is pretty good too.

We did the Sledging and was fun. Check with the reception for info.

We love this place and we hope to be back.

The hotel is located 100m from the train station up on a slope. It can be slippery pulling your luggage on melting snow. But otherwise, its a short and pleasant climb. We were given a room with an excellent unblocked view of Eiger mountain. The room is of good size and both room and bathroom are comfortably heated. Breakfast served consisted of a simple assortment of cereals, breads, ham and cheese. Free wifi is fast and reliable. Only wish is that the pillow and mattress are firmer.

Flower bedecked chalet hotel, comfortable newly refurbished rooms in modern alpine style with contemporary shower room. We had a side room with a balcony giving views of smaller chalets & gardens to the rear & mountain tops from side & front - perfect! [as was the weather for our 6 days].
Located 5 minutes up from the main street & station; however the short walk up is very steep so maybe unsuitable for the less fit or able.
Menu limited but food great & deserts are fine as long as you like ice cream.

Room Tip: Front rooms with balconies & views of the mountains are more expensive but standard rooms at the...

I stay here every June on my hiking trip of Europe and am never dissapointed. The owners are friendly and very helpful, there is wifi, a filling breakfast, great restaurant and fabulous views.

Even though only about 100 meters from the train station (so very easy to walk to) it seems to be a little oasis on the edge of the village. There Is no road noise, and you can relax on the front lawn staring at the Eiger, while lying in a deck chair.

Thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose the balcony rooms for wonderful views

Reviewed 12 June 2012

This is my second time reviewing this hotel. Having stayed there in 2009 and now again in 2012. We came back because the hotel staff and owners are warm and friendly and the hotel very clean and comfortable.
The restaurant serves delicious food which is very well presented. The rooms are spacious, very clean, new carpets and new linen on the beds. The beds are comfortable and snugly. Free wifi is available in the lounge/library room on the first floor. Breakfast is ample with various cereals, delicious breads, home made jams, ham and cheese, yogurts, fruit. You can also request eggs. The waiting staff are all efficient and helpful and nothing is too much bother. The hotel has a fast working lift. The hotel is situated across the road from the train station and slightly up a driveway. You are right in the township and very thing you need is close at hand. I fully recommend this hotel as good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms looking out to the Eiger which will be directly in front of you. Amazing.
