We had a good stay at the Bodmi. The owners are very nice; not the sort of warm hotel owners who revel in the lives of their guests, but polite and briskly helpful. The restaurant was good and probably no more pricey than most in Switzerland. Breakfast was good.
Some people might consider the location of the Bodmi, ten minutes up a steep path above Grindelwald on the First cable car route, a disadvantage. We didn't have a car. Certainly once one gets back to the hotel for the night after a day of hiking, we found it hard to summon the motivation to trudge back down to the village, knowing we had to hike back up again in the dark.
We actually liked the location for its quiet. It's a personal choice. The hotel will make bag lunches, for a fee. Another hotel we stayed at did that at no charge.
We had booked a non-suite. They put us in a nice room that we assumed was not a suite, only to be told on checkout that it was. They were rattled by that but charged us the lower rate, as agreed.
