Hotel Eiger
Ranked #1 of 11 Hotels in Murren
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 March 2006

We were made to feel most welcome at this lovely hotel. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, arranging ski pass, booking transfers etc etc. Service and food were both excellent and even though there was a mix of people, old and young in the hotel, the 5 children in the party were always made to feel at home. Rooms were traditional in style but had everything you wanted....wireless internet, Cable TV and were warm and welcoming. Not sure why this only has a 2 star rating, the hotel is without a doubt a four star. We will certainly return to the Hotel Eiger.

We stayed in a family suite in July, 2005 with our two children. The staff at the Hotel are very professional. The view of Eiger, Munch and Jungfrau is spectacular. The food in the hotel was fine. We will stay at the Eiger again when we return to the Bernese Oberland!

We stay at the Hotel Eiger every time we go to the Jungfrau region of Switzerland. We do stay during off-peak periods because it's less crowded, less likely to feature children, and is much more affordable.

The staff never fails to make us feel welcome. The rooms are comfortable, and the superior rooms feature awesome views of the Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau peaks. The air is always fresh, as this hotel is located in a car-free town. There is plenty of hiking in the summers and awesome skiing in the winters in this region. This is a very relaxing place to stay on vacation.

That said, I do wish they would renovate their lounge and convert it to a smoke-free zone. I have to hold my breath everytime I pass through because I am hyper-sensitive to cigarette smells.

We stayed at the Hotel Eiger for eight nights at the beginning of July and received a warm welcome the minute we entered the building. The room was clean and tidy and the view across to the Eiger was breathtaking.
The 5 course dinner in the restaurant was good and the waitresses very friendly.
Murren is a beautiful village that hasn't been spoiled by becoming over commercialized like Grindelwald. The hotel swimming pool is rather small but there is an excellent pool at the sports centre just 5 minutes walk.
The mountain walks from the village are well marked and suitable for all abilities.
Overall, a great hotel, friendly staff and a stunning location.

Murren is awesome! The Eiger is a nice, very traditional older style hotel. Rooms were small, but very clean and updated. Direct Eiger mountain view from balcony has got to be unmatched! Bed was great. Bath was updated and nice. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. Would stay there again, or try the Anfi which looked nice, but balconies there were not direct view of magestic mountains - their balconies were angled.

We stayed at the hotel Eiger in Summer 2004 for 7 nights. In our view an adequate hotel but old-fashioned and food not great. Highlights:
- Great views from South facing rooms. Good rooms
- Friendly staff
- Faded decor in lounge areas
- Very small pool (village pool is a more attractive alternative). Considerable late night noise from nearby bar (at nearb Eiger guest house) & drunks going home
- Food somewhat patchy in quality & serving style old fashioned (brought on platters then placed on plates). Poor choice in salad bar
- Lots of British package tourists
- If you like large organized tour parties in your hotel you'll love the Eiger (we didn't).
