We had an amazing stay at Central Wolter. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, we will certainly go to this hotel again the next time we're visiting Switzerland!

I was impressed by Central Hotel Wolter...the price is right and the place is clean and the staff was very friendly. Although I got a budget room, I still had a little balcony with a table and chairs so I could eat my dinner looking out to the Alps. Only about a 30 second walk to the train station, so the location can't be beat, and Grindelwald is so small that everything else you need is just a short walk away.

One thing to remember...the Swiss version of a single room is literal. The bed is barely larger than a cot. Not a negative, just something to keep in mind.

We had a room at the front of the Hotel with wonderful views of the mountains. Rooms at the back of the hotel without the view seemed darker and less inviting. Our room was large and comfortable. The bed was good. Bathroom was large. The breakfast was excellent for the price. It was very difficult to find initially as the signage is ambiguous. The location is near the railway and it is in the centre of town. A small supermarket is close by. The only detractor was that the car parking was behind the hotel in a very tight spot. We then had to drag our bags over a roof top walkway and come in through a back entry to the hotel. As a result of this outside foot traffic the carpets in the rear hallways were dirty and this seemed uninviting when we first arrived.

I have stayed here 6-8 times in the last 10 yearsfor hiking trips and always find the folks at the front desk very helpful and friendly.
With the US$ so devalued I usually opt for a cheaper room on the 4 th floor but it is always clean bright and modern and with a great view to the alps!
The breakfast buffet is quite good for a 3 star property offering the usual cheeses meats rolls breads fresh fruits coffee.This year noticed the addition of egg dishes which one does not often find at 3 star properties.
Excellent location :an easy 1-2 minute walk from the train .

A scene of fake 3D rocks overhead on the ceiling ('like looking out of a cave' said my wife), alpine views on the wall, cupboard and fridge, and even a mountain goat with its head jutting out from the wall, greeted us when we entered our bedroom but after the initial shock we took it in good fun and this reflects the whole hotel. The staff are lovely, really friendly and helpful, nice buffet breakfast with hot and cold food, a terrace for guests overlooking the Eiger, and we had a lovely dinner with some of the nicest staff I have ever encountered. OK, the bathroom was small, and our view out of the bedroom window was bleak, but it was still great value and the location in central Grindelwald, and only 2 minutes walk from the station made up for this.

Our room was small, but bright and cheery. The bathroom was large and had a heated towel rack that we really enjoyed. There was a small table in the room, which served as a dinner table (if you bought food from the grocery store) or desk. The associated restaurant was great -- we ate there 3 of our 5 nights, and we ate at an affiliated hotel/restaurant on another night. Kangaroo was even on the menu (because the chef came from Australia). The ice cream desserts were beautiful and tasted great. Breakfast was good, but as other reviewers have commented, you need to get there early in order to get any of the fresh fruit. There were always Japanese tour groups at the hotel, but they were well mannered. They did, however, tend to eat breakfast before we did, and the would overwhelm the breakfast room and eat the fresh fruit before we got there.
