Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 September 2013

We stayed at the hotel Eiger for 2 weeks. After researching carefully hotels/resorts, we settled on the Hotel Eiger in Murren. We had a memorable holiday from start to finish, swiss transport network exceptional!!. The hotel Eiger and its team and owners truly spoilt us throughout our holiday. room 108 was perfect and the views are spectacular. food and service in the restaurant were exceptional yet unobtrusive.

pool and health club were perfect after a tough days hiking

Myself and my wife would reccommend the hotel and resort to anybody.

Remember to say hi to the wild chamois feeding in front of the railway station!

Room Tip: book a room at the front, the views are amazing.

We just loved our stay in this hotel. I knew i wanted to book to stay here when i read an interview on line with the owner and manager of this hotel. The family has owned and run it for the last 100 years, and it shows. It is the attention to detail that makes this place so special. They have taken great care to modernise the hotel whilst maintaining its original Swiss charm. we had a wonderful room - a suite - which had amazing views out over Munch, Jungfrau and Eiger peaks, and it was so close to do all the walking etc available at the resort. In winter this place would also be awewsome for the skiing. We cant wait to go back! We would highly recommend it to anyone. Muerren is also a fantastic destination in the Alps - anyone wanting to experience Switerland would be truly amazed with this location. It is simply stunning. The hotel also has a great restaurant, and a good bar / pub type place down stairs, with reasonable prices. Happy days.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the mountains. level 3 and 4 are best views. Suites are fantastic and...

Quite a journey to reach Murren (train from Interlaken, cable car then another train) but the location is well worth the effort. Perched 2625 feet above the beautiful u shaped valley floor, Murren is a very quiet Swiss resort, largely consisting of hotels and restaurants. The Eiger is a very long established family run hotel which offers its visitors a very friendly welcome. You are given a tour of the hotel and escorted to your room on arrival. Rooms are quite traditional in furnishings - free standing pine wardrobes and bathrooms with shower curtains - but everything works and is very clean. Flat screen TV offers British TV channels and unlike many hotels, wi-fi is free. I had a front of hotel room which had its own balcony overlooking the stunning mountains. Excellent restaurant where I dined every night, enjoying especially the Autumn seasonal menu and some very good Swiss wines. If the weather does turn misty (and it can very quickly at these heights) the train station directly opposite the hotel can take you down to the hopefully sunnier bottom of the valley where you can easily explore the surrounding area - I went as far as Thun and took in a lake trip (no additional charge using my Swisspass) on a classic paddle boat down the Thunersee. Some wonderful walks from the hotel which you can easily combine with the extensive cable car network.

Murren is a special car free resort town and Hotel Eiger is a very special 4 star hotel. Family owned and opeated and very friendly. Serious and concientious staff and although quite expensive (by the way everything in Switzerland is expensive) the rooms were furnished with care, comfortable with great views of the Alps. Very nice complimentary breakfast buffet and although the restaurant is not inexpensive the service and quality of the food was first class. The sauna and indoor pool with jacuzzi jets was perfecrt for massaging the sore muscles after our long hikes and the managers cocktail party was a good opportunity to meet the hotel owners, staff and our fellow guests. Yes, when we return to the Alps we will return to Hotel Eiger. Job well done.

Room Tip: Corner room 456 - Great views and almost as large as the junior suite. Matter of fact we preferred...

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Eiger for four nights from August 31 to September 4 for our first wedding anniversary. Simply, this hotel and the staff met every one of our expectations. I can't say enough about the staff, and how friendly and helpful they were. Corinne helped us schedule a paragliding experience, and we enjoyed talking with Michael through our dining experiences. Another staff member arranged to go breakfasts when we told her we'd be leaving very early in the morning to head back home. Our room was a beautiful suite with gorgeous views of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau mountains...while a "splurge" for us, I felt it was worth every penny to have such a wonderful experience. We would absolutely stay here again :-)

Our family of 4 stayed here for 3 nights in August 2013. Murren is a fabulous village to visit and this hotel made the stay all the nicer. The location is great- right across from the train station. The very friendly owner welcomed us upon arriving and every morning and evening after that. Staff were helpful and pleasant. We stayed in two adjoining rooms which worked out well for us and our kids ages 8 and 10. The breakfast each morning offered a huge selection and was a great way to begin a day of hiking and exploring. Our kids loved the pool (a rarity when traveling in Europe) and we loved the on-site restaurant. Altogether a wonderful place to stay in a beautiful area of Switzerland.
