My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Eiger Guesthouse in late April. Murren was a fairly random destination for us before we went on to France and Spain. We arrived on a gorgeous, sunny afternoon. After asking Ema about whether it would be worth our time to visit Shilthorn so late in the afternoon, she checked her phone for the weather forecast and immediately said, "Go now, tomorrow the weather is turning bad." So we hustled up to the top and experienced an unforgettable view of the Alps. Ema even called ahead to ensure we could make the last tram of the day. She and her staff provided regular advice for us during our stay.
Our room was on the third floor (be advised, no elevator). I'm attaching a photo of the view outside our window. Tremendous!
The room was clean and well-appointed. The bathroom was also clean. The shower is very euro-tiny, though.
The hotel gave us a free card with access to the town's indoor pool. This proved very valuable during our second day when it snowed about a foot.
Breakfast was delicious and during our brief visit downstairs to eat, the staff was able to get in our room and completely make it up for us.
Drinks in the bar downstairs were a bit pricey. We paid over 9 euro for a 12 oz. diet coke and a club soda with no alcohol.
I highly recommend this hotel for your stay. Top-notch service, clean, comfortable rooms and an excellent breakfast buffet. For the bargain price of the room, it's a winner.
