Hotel Eiger Grindelwald
Ranked #3 of 41 Hotels in Grindelwald
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 September 2012

We chose to stay in Grindelwald so we could visit the Jungfraujoch and must say this is a fantastic hotel with great hospitality and a 5 min walk to the train station. Staff are very helpful, parking is secure and food is excellent! Highly recommended! Ps. Great view of the mountains!

Visited here 3 times for dinner during my recent visit as a solo traveller. Found the staff of the downstairs bar to be very friendly and the place had a great atmosphere.

Would recommend the "Wilhelm Tell Rosti" - Minced beef and Swiss cheese mix - all the better when washed down with a glass of Rugenbrau Beer!

Room Tip: South facing rooms have a balcony and views over the Eiger.

My wife and i have just come back from a holiday in Grindelwald Switzerland . We had been before two years ago and stayed at the fitness hotel Eiger . I gingerly booked the same hotel knowing that if you go back sometimes it is never the same . I am so impressed with the way the service has improved and nothing was too much trouble at all ,directions. heating . ironing board and plug adaptors all there all given with a smile . Every day the food was so special with multiple options .
We had a corner room this year and although it didnt have a balcony it was very spacious with a scrumptious bathroom.
Big thank you to all the staff from the maids upwards ,service this good needs to be applauded

Room Tip: corner room was very spacious with the advantage of a bed settee if required

The room was wonderfully clean and comfy. The in-house restaurant served lovely food and everyone in the place were friendly and helpful.

There is a separate smoking room where you can buy cigars as well. You can order from the restaurant, if you want your food spoiled by smoke ;-)

There was Swiss live music in the restaurant in the evening - an absolute joy.

During the summer, there are lots of local events. The night we were there, the whole street was closed off and there were jugglers and food stands and several shops stayed open late.

We are a family of 4 and we stayed in one of their apartments up the hill. Loved the town, staff and the apartment. We had the view of majestic Eiger mountain from our balcony. Breakfast was really nice with a huge spread of hot and cold items. The apartment itself was ok, kind of dated. Bed and pillows were terrible, bathroom quite big, but looks quite old, shower is not that great. No microwave in kitchen, not sure if this is Swiss standard. Staff was very helpful. Very spacious for families, would love to stay if they spruce up the bathroom. Washer and dryer didn't work.

This hotel is in a nice location on the main street. It has a beautiful loby and the staff seems nice. We expected a view of the alps, but instead got a view of the alley (very noisy at night). They called it a family suite, but it was the same size as a regular room with a bunck bed added - not what we expected for the price. The bathroom was large, although no place to do hair and makeup outside the bathroom with 4 people staying in the room.

I didn't try the exercise room, but it looked like they had very nice equipment.

The breakfast was wonderful. They had yummy rolls, meat, cheese, eggs, cereal, yogurt, etc. Everything was fresh and good.

The internet was free but very spotty.

The room was warm, so we had to keep them open to cool down the room. Unfortunately this caused the room to be very noisy.

Room Tip: avoid one with windows on the alley.

Started of fairly well, the service was good and it seemed like they were very focused on their service but some staff are very juniors. But things only got worse from there on!
The rooms are very dated and not very large, for the price we paid and compared to other hotels in the village it was a bit of a let down.

Things went bad to worse when I spend most of the night fighting a rash, it was only in the early hours I could see and realized it was bed bugs (see photos).

My hand and body has a lot of bite and I hadn’t had more than an hour sleep the night before. I went to the reception and showed them the photos I took and the bites, they didn’t seem overly apologetic or concerned, they asked a cleaner to go to my room, luckily I had caught one of the bugs in in a jar and they could see it was bed bugs, otherwise they would have probably denied it.
Was told the room would be cleaned again. Luckily by the afternoon a more senior manager come on site and offered a change of room for the “incident” in the morning.

At checkout I did tell them it wasn’t a very good stay and all they could say was that they never had it before and they were sorry. Which didn’t really help me much, a decent hotel would have probably offered a refund for the first night.

They are trying hard on the service and did the little things well, but I think they are forgetting the fundamentals, nice clean rooms and ad good nights sleep!
