“Favorite Place in the world”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

Mürren, the little place in the Swiss Alps, with its great mountain sights like the Schilthorn where one James Bond-movie was filmed, is my favourite place in the world. However, I'm sure this would not be the case if my good feelings about Mürren wouldn't be directly connected with the Hotel Eiger, an incomparably great place to stay. If you're interested in comfort, good food and nice people that is. The hotel owners, all members of the Stähli-van Allmen-family, are the best. They do not only care for you professionally, but as people and friends. This also applies to the hotel staff. One example: Every evening room service goes back to your room after already having cleaned in the morning and places a little chocolate heart on your cushion. So everybody gets a good night's sleep for which the calmness and greatness of the Swiss mountains also does a great deal. So if you really would like to see something unique, go to Mürren, see the Schilthorn and stay at the Eiger. Oh, something I didn't mention before, when you sit on your hotel balcony you will see Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau directly in front of you. So, after all, is there any place you would rather be during your holidays? No? Me neither.

We were given this hotel recommendation as a must from a friend, and we went here blindly. From the trip up the gondola, to the train and then the hotel with it's unbelievable views it was a magical place. You truly felt like you were somewhere special in the world-unlike anyplace we'd ever been. The hotel is family run, and is very charming. The rooms were comfortable, and were fine for a 2 night stay. The furniture was a little spartan, and the sitting area adjacent to our bedroom was not that comfortable to sit and have a drink or watch tv. It was a good place to keep our luggage out of the way! The balcony facing the mountains was absolutely awesome--whether it was sunny and an incredible view or cloudy, dark and ominous, giving you a magical feeling. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with suggestions as to what to do since we arrived at this hotel having no idea what we would find in this town. The breakfast was lovely and we had dinner there as well and it was excellent. Definitely a special place that will be highly recommended!

Room Tip: Definitely get a mountain view--one of the reasons you are there!

We booked this hotel for 3 of us (my wife, 16 year old and myself) the afternoon we arrived in the area as the hotel we had reserved in Interlaken was horrible. Hotel Eiger is amazing. Incredible views of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau, the three most beautiful and magnificent peaks in the alps. The room was fabulous and had a sitting area with couches. The staff was fabulous and the location could not be beat. Food was terrific. You really feel pampered. Highest recommendation

Wonderful hotel in a picture perfect location, great breakfast. It was hot during our stay, though, and they didn't have air conditioning. That was the only downside.

Stayed overnight on 14th April. The welcome from the staff was wonderful and we were made to feel at home in minutes. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were very well-appointed and comfortable. We had a front-facing double and, had it not been for the clouds, the views would have been spectacular! We brought a bottle of wine with us, but no corkscrew! Not only did the hotel provide one, but they also sent up 2 glasses. On leaving we were supplied with a bottle of water each. Cannot be faulted!

We came here on honeymoon and we returned for our silver wedding anniversary. What's changed? Apart from the beautifully modernised facilities-nothing. The amazing views, the friendly welcome, the efficient service, the excellent food, the sheer pleasure of being here are just as they were before. Congratulations--in a changing world you've only changed the things that need to change and not the things that matter most.

Myself and a friend stayed at Hotel Eiger for a week at the start of March.

We got a very late deal and were accommodated on the 1st floor at the rear of the hotel. The room was excellent with plenty of space and a large bathroom with a nice, powerful shower. The view from our room won't win any awards as it was facing a big pile of snow (as we were on a ski holiday we couldn't really complain) but i'd recommend asking for a room at the front of the hotel as the views here are spectacular.

Food was excellent here also. Silver service most nights and a very good selection of meals.

The swimming area/ sauna was a real joy and very well received after a hard day on the slopes. Naked saunas seemed popular but you can go in clothed if you want.

The main point to make, as it seems every other reviewer has mentioned, are how incredibly friendly/helpful/fun the staff are. All of them were extremely sociable and would all go out of their way to help.

Murren hasn't got a particularly huge night life so we ended up drinking in the fantastic Eiger bar most nights, sitting on the prime bar seats and enjoying banter with the various bar staff.

The snow was unbelievable here too. Coupling this with the Hotel experience made it one of the best holidays i've ever been on. Can't recommend it enough!

Room Tip: Ask to be at the front of the hotel for the best views.
