“Always A Great Time At Chalet Bobs”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We have stayed with Kitty and Albert, owners of Chalet Bobs, 4 times and look forward to many future visits. Kitty and Albert are gracious and knowledgeable hosts who make us feel welcome every time we visit. We consider them our friends. They know everything about the area and are happy to share their knowledge. Their clean apartment has everything you need during your stay. Murren is an experience, not just a place to stay. Taking a cablecar and a cog railway to arrive in Murren, Chalet Bobs overlooks the Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau, just above the Lauterbrunnen Valley. We use the location as a base, staying at least a week. Besides the local hiking (North Trail, Hike down to Stechelberg, Winteregg, and the beautiful Lauterbrunnen Valley), you have access to the whole Bernese Oberland area. We like to go to Schynige Platte and hike, then head to First via Grindelwald to hike to Lake Bachalpsee and then to Grosse Scheidegg (take the Post Bus back to Grindelwald), Mannlichen via Wengen and either take the gondolas down to Grindelwald or hike to Kleine Scheidegg. We often go to Interlaken Ost to take the boat to Spiez or Thun to visit their castles. The area is definitely what we envision when we think of Switzerland. Can't wait to go back to Chalet Bobs.

Even if Kitty and Albert weren't fantastic hosts and incredibly nice people, we would have had a fantastic visit at their chalet. The little apartment was just what we needed: comfort, a place to cook (there was even a cheese slicer!) and a fair price. We even had a perfect view of the Eiger, Monk and Jungfrau just outside our window. It was lovely going to sleep to the faint sound of a nearby waterfall, and waking up such a beautiful village. We were nice and close to the gondola, and Kitty suggested a great restaurant for our first night in town. We were only there for three nights, but it definitely felt like a home away from home. My only regret is not getting a chance to hear Albert play his alphorn. If we were to go that way again, we would absolutely return to Chalet Bobs! It was my favourite part of our Eurotrip!

I had a great stay at Chalet Bobs. The owners are helpful and welcoming, the apartment lovely (especially for the very reasonable price) and the views are just incredible. It was easy to find and there are lots of beautiful walks close by. Highly recommended!

I loved my trip to Murren, and there’s not much I can add here to what’s already been written. But I will give some helpful tips I wish I had to keep from looking like a clueless tourist. I don’t speak any German so there was a bit of a language barrier.

The garbage should be emptied in the metal box by the road.. This is basically a small dumpster with wheels. For recycling, I was able to throw milk containers and plastic bottles in bins right in front of the Coop. Glass bottles, however, go in “a small hut” by the Coop. I was completely lost on this, but a helpful local pointed me towards a squat unlabeled building a few down from the Coop on the same side of the road. The glass dumpsters were inside this building. You should take all the sheets off the bed when you leave, including the duvet covers. Also, don’t be afraid to ask questions. Maybe it’s just me, but seeing notices around the room written in German with exclamation points is… intimidating. But Kitty and Albert could not be nicer.

Hikers, make sure you grab that nice color map of the area. It’s helpful to a degree, although there are no distances, and the elevation marks don’t make much sense with the way the map is laid out. There are no bad hikes in this area. We went to Gimmelwald, Spurtz (a waterfall), Gimmla (a farming area), Almenhubel, and Winteregg. I’ll come back as soon as I can.

Amazing views!!! We stayed here 2 nights. We had to cut our trip short and the hosts were flexible and understanding of our situation. We went to the local co-op for groceries and used the kitchen to cook which was really nice after two weeks of hiking! Wish we could have stayed longer!

if in the murren area of switzerland, do yourself a favor and just make reservations at chalet bobs-you will have a beautiful small apartment with the most incredible view and the most gracious hosts you could possibly ask for-all this for about half of what you would pay for any of the other comparable accommodations-it is a no brainer; you'll be glad you did

We stayed in Murren for 3 nights. Murren itself is awesome. It is so peaceful and scenic , you want to stay more no matter how long you have been there. Chalet Bob's is apartment kind of arrangement with a kitchen , bedroom and bathroom. We stayed on ground floor and the view from our windows were awesome. You will feel heavenly in this place. The owners are great people and it was nice to be able to meet them. Only problem with us was that we traveled with lot of luggage and Chalet Bob's being a walk of 15-20 minutes from BLM stop, it was little troublesome to walk all the way with that much of luggage to and fro. But otherwise if you are travelling light , i think you cannot find a better place to stay than this one .
