“The best swimming pool ever.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2012

We paid extra for a mountain view room. It was spectacular when the fog cleared the first day. Murren is a cute little town. There are several hikes of various lengths and difficulties. The staff is very eager to show you a map. We ate dinner in the restaurant one night. It was expensive but very good and the service was also. But the swimming pool was amazing!

The rooms are very nice and renovated. Ask for renovated rooms when making a reservation as they have both. The ones on the first floor are renovated. The top ones are not. They are in the process of renovating those.

The breakfast was excellent. The service was excellent.

Overall excellent. It won't be a mistake to stay here. Only thing is that up in the hill here at Murren, it gets very cloudy. So staying in the valley of Lauterbrunnen is not a bad idea. The only problem in Lauterbrunnen is that none of the hotels are good. They are not even half-decent. We physically went to the top hotels in Lauterbrunnen including the ones that are recommended in Rick Steve's book. But rooms in those hotels are just too small. So there is no real choice of even half-decent hotels in Lauterbrunnen. So either stay in Hotel Eiger in Murren or in Interlaken. Not sure if there are any good hotels in Interlaken as we didn't look for one.

This hotel was perfect in every way. The food was fantastic, the staff very helpful welcoming and warm, the room was spotless with everything we needed and an amazing view of the mountains. The location was also wonderful, opposite the train station and close to lots of beautiful walks and pastures as well as shops, funicular stations, places to eat etc. The village is quite quiet but there is a great atmosphere and all the locals are very friendly and always happy to help. We could not fault this hotel (and village) and would love to return, it made a perfect destination for very memorable and happy holiday... keep up the excellent work to the owners and all the lovely staff.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the Jungfrau... its a perfet way to start the day!

The hotel was great and the city of Murren was a lot less crowed then the other side of the valley. Over all, this is a great place to stay. The spacious rooms and friendly staff make this a great place to stay. Additionally, this hotel has the best restaurant and not just in Murren but on that side of the valley.

My wife and I hope to spend many more weekends in Murren,

Room Tip: The rooms with the Mt Vally view offer the best view.

We stayed at the Hotel Eiger in Murren in mid August and very much enjoyed ourselves. The view is...well, what's higher than 5 stars? 6 stars? 10 stars? It's truly remarkable to see the mountains up close like that, it feels like you can reach out and touch them. The restaurant at the hotel is also top notch, easily in the best in town and possibly the entire region. Murren itself is adorable, straight out of a Swiss travel brochure, as it is central to several hiking trails and essentially perched on a cliff. You have to access the town by driving to Lauterbrunnen, parking your car, taking to cable car up to Grustchalp, and then hopping on a 10 min train to Murren, the hotel is acros the street from the train station. If this was the US, this process would be fraught with peril, but the Swiss are extremely organized so it's fairly effortless.The town offers easy access to the cable car (a 10 min walk) up to see the Schiltorn. The jungfrau "top of europe" trip is a bit longer trek from Murren as you have to retrace your steps a bit to go back to Lauterbrunnen before heading up the mountain, but it's a must-see attraction (despite the fairly outrageous cost). We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the years ahead.

Cannot say enough about this hotel - we arrived at the hotel on a Thursday evening around 8:45p after flying into Zurich airport. One of the owners greeted us and they held the restaurant open for us to have dinner.

Very comfortable rooms - views from balcony and outdoor dining area are great.

The customer service at this hotel is impeccable. The weather was unusually warm for Murren during June so they put a fan in our room to help cool it.

They opened the pool one night for us after the pool was closed.

I can't wait to go back to Murren and stay here again.

Room Tip: A room with a balcony is a must- we sat on our balcony every morning and evening - great view of th...
