“I could only give it 5 stars”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

The Trip Advisor rating system only allows 5 stars, but this place deserves more. Not only was the room beautifully appointed, but the staff was exceptional. My wife and I stayed there in September in an upper floor room with a balcony and drop dead view of the awesome trio of mountains. I had a very bad cold which I picked up prior to arrival and because the village does not have a resident doctor, the staff opened up their personal medicine cabinet and gave me some cough medicine and cold tablets to tide me over. But their concern did not stop there-asking me several times a day how we were doing and if I was feeling better. We ran into one of the desk clerks in town, and she came over to my wife and I and took several pictures of us for the memory book. All in all, it was the Eiger Team that made our stay unforgettable, although the pumpkin soup in the restaurant might have had something to do with it too.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor room with a balcony. And don't forget your camera!

Stayed here for a week, skiing in March this year. Highly recommended. Would happily return. Extremely courteous restaurant staff overseen by Fritz the Head Waiter. The owner and his wife were usually at Reception and always on hand to help and advise. Service and Food standards were high at every meal and the buffet style breakfast; starters and salads offered plenty of choice. Superb views of the mountains opposite with the Eiger taking pride of place.
The skiing was very good and a short train ride to cross to the other side of the valley makes it possible to ski in Wengen as well.
Will return.

Room Tip: The back rooms are a little dingy, but spacious.

The last week of September enjoying the hospetality which makes this stay to something really special! The trip was even better due to the fact that we had superb weather conditions. It was almost like a real Indian Summer. Hiking conditions were excellent. After a day of walking through the mountains, swimming in the pool makes it even better. Relaxing 2.0.

The peace of travelling by train is a new chapter for me but it works out perfect. It's easy, convenient and reliable! We will be back.

Room Tip: Overlooking the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau is so good. Frontside!

Hotel Eiger was simply amazing. My husband and I stayed during the middle of September for a romantic and active (lots of hiking) two nights for my birthday and our anniversary. The owners made us feel welcome from the second we arrived. The hotel is beautiful with classic mountain resort details. Our room was perfect. We had a suite with a breathtaking view of the Alps. We loved sitting out on our balcony and taking in the view and fresh air. The bed was very comfortable and the master bath had a luxurious soaking tub. Breakfast and dinner were both delicious. For dinner my husband and I had two different preparations of the venison and we loved them both. For breakfast there was a huge buffet with American and continental options.
The owners have a cocktail hour on Thursday nights. We had a great time chatting with the owners and getting a chance to mingle with other vacationers. The free champagne was a great touch, especially since it was my birthday. The owners made celebrating my birthday at Hotel Eiger better than celebrating it at home.
We only stayed two nights, but wished that we had planned a week or more. The hotel was perfect and Murren has a very long list of activities for every season. We will definitely go back for a longer stay.

Room Tip: You should definitely splurge for a room with a balcony on a high floor or a suite. The views are a...

There are so many wonderful things to say about this hotel, I don't even know where to start. First, Murren is gorgeous and conveniently located for all the things we wanted to do in the area. There are several restaurants and places to enjoy a drink - the town is simply adorable. Stay in Murren! Hotel Eiger was absolutely lovely with breathtaking views. We loved Murren and the hotel so much, we decided to extend our visit. The owners of the hotel, Adrian and Susanna, were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Adrian stopped by our table while we were having dinner to chat and they hosted a cocktail reception with free champagne for their guests. The room was beautiful and the view of the mountains from our balcony is indescribable. One minor negative: the balconies are connected and if your neighbor was out, there wasn't much privacy. The complimentary breakfast was fantastic! Delicious and plentiful. The hotel restaurant has gorgeous views of the mountain and the dinner we had there was fantastic. This hotel was peaceful and lovely. Do not miss the opportunity to stay at the very best hotel!

This was our 5th stay in Hotel Eiger ! It was simply perfect... as usual. All you can ask for you will find in Hotel Eiger. We love the views, relaxing in the swimming pool area. The food is great, very good selection of wines. Superb Breakfast ! Beds are really comfortable. Very friendly and professional management and staff (not always easy to mix both, but here they manage perfectly). Good to see they keep up the level of standards ! We will be back ! Thank you again !

We absolutely loved our stay at Hotel Eiger. This place is breathtakingly beautiful, and the service is extra ordinary. Susanna and Adrian are wonderful hosts, and they go that extra mile to make your vacation perfect. The complimentary breakfast was delicious, and was easily the best breakfast we had during our entire stay in Europe. We highly recommend hotel Eiger if you are planning on visiting Murren. We can't wait to go back!
