My wife and I spent a wonderful week at the Hotel Eiger in late August . We stayed there 5 years ago and always wanted to go back. The location is fantastic for a week of hiking especially with the six day rail and gondola pass. The mountain hikes around Grindelwald have some of the best scenic vistas of anywhere in the world.
The hotel has a great spa with 2 saunas, steam room and best of all a cold plunge. Trust me, use the cold plunge to get rid of the aches and pains of hiking . If you can just make 20 seconds you will make it to a minute and your legs will thank you the next day. For us Americans the no clothing allowed in the sauna ,steam and cold plunge areas may take a little getting used to but "When in Rome........." besides the towels are big if you are bashful!
The hotel and the food (half board) are fine but the staff and service are great. Need walking poles...... they will get them for you. WIFI weak in your room......here plug in this repeater box. Train to the airport leaving at 5:19AM .....let me send a snack box up to your room tonight (Water, 2 pieces of fruit and a great sandwich) so you have something to eat for breakfast on the train. The staff could not have been more helpful and made our visit one to remember.
the view from the room is of the Eigers famous North face which on a clear day is fantastic! We highly recommend the Hotel Eiger and won't hesitate to visit again.
