Although high season is really in Winter, we visited in early August for the incredible (and sometimes exhausting!) hiking. The hotel (I'm not referring to the Eiger Guesthouse next door!) is situated immediately across from the tiny Murren terminus of the railway. Don't worry; it's a one car tiny train, and you will never be bothered by noise from the railway. You should certainly ask for a room with a view of the Eiger. All the staff are wonderful, friendly, and multi-lingual. The breakfast that is included is bounteous and varied---a buffet with perfectly scrambled eggs and bacon, all the Fleisch-centric options (and smoked salmon!) that a German-Swiss would love, fruit, warm and crumbly croissants with butter and superlative jams, and...it goes on. They will meet you at the train to carry your luggage--they will do anything. Swimming pool indoors, great outdoor terrace with A+ views for drinks or food any time. AND! By far the best dinners anywhere in Murren. Herbed rack of lamb cooked perfectly, superb reindeer, and my steak was also superb. Upstairs dining is too bright but has the superb views of the mountains. Downstairs is cozy and luxurious--I think it's the better choice. Whar a wonderful experience--we will certainly return!
