Excellent location , our room , as always , had a wonderful view of the mountains , and was spotless , can't wait to see Ema and her team again in the ski season , looking forward to it already !

We arrived at about 3:30 and had to wait about 45 minutes for our room to get cleaned. The room is very basic and shares a balcony with a few other rooms. We had two twin beds and the room was a decent size, but was crowded with two unnecessary little sofas/beds? It was also dark with little lighting. The room looks out to Eiger, Jungfrau and Monch mountains. Currently there is construction going on directly in front of the hotel at the train station, right across the small street. The constructions starts at about 7:30 every day except Sunday, we could not sleep through the noise. The people who own and run the hotel are very friendly and helpful with maps for hiking trails and things to do. If you are looking for a rustic setting, this would be perfect. Murren is somewhat remote, accessible by small train and cablecar, with great hiking close by. I believe we got one of the better rooms, but the whole place would benefit from new carpets; I understand this may be a challenge with all of the hiking and pastures nearby. We ate downstairs one night; it was good but expensive, like all the other restaurants in the area.

Room Tip: Stay here if you are looking for a rustic hiking or skiing experience.

Boyfriend and I LOVED Murren and were very happy with our choice to stay at the Eiger Guesthouse. Its RIGHT across the street from the train station so that was handy, and we had a lovely 3rd floor room with a great view. We had our own bathroom so didn't see the shared bathrooms but everything in the hotel was spotless so I am sure the shared bathrooms are as well. I thought it was a great value for Switzerland, which is an expensive place to visit.

We had a great stay at the Eiger Guest House. The view from the balcony was amazing. The hotel and restaurant staff were very friendly. The hotel is located steps away from the train which made it convenient if you have luggage. We ate one night at the Restaurant/Pub and had the Rostii which was very good.

The views from the rooms are absolutely wonderful and you can see snow on the mountains.This accommodation is directly located across from the exit of the train station. We had a room with shared bathroom & toilet which were very modern and exceptionally clean. The room was very comfortable and clean also. All staff were very friendly and accommodating. We were very impressed with Joseph, Daniel and the lovely young lady who does the breakfast each morning. The chef cooks beautiful meals at night and we ate at the guesthouse each night for the 3 nights we were there. Breakfast was included in our accommodation and the buffet was fulfilling. There is a bar area at which you can enjoy a drink or play a game of pool for 2 CHF. We would highly recommend this guesthouse.

Room Tip: All rooms at front of hotel have a great view.

This hotel is in the perfect location - directly across from a little train station with big comfortable rooms and very clean! Our room had a balcony too. The staff is so nice, and helpful with what walks to take etc. The breakfasts were good! This is the only place we would stay when we come back to Murren!

Our family of six stayed in adjoining rooms (one with a bed for the parents, the other with two sets of bunk beds). The train station is right across the street from the hotel so it would be very convenient to arrive by train. However, we arrived late at night so we had to take the cable car up from Stechelberg and walk through Murren to the hotel, but it was maybe a 10 minute walk and fairly flat. Also, the cable car is an experience in itself, going straight up the cliff to Gimmelwald and then you transfer to another car that takes you up to Murren. In daylight you can watch the paragliders during your ascent or descent At the hotel, the kids enjoyed their hot chocolate in the mornings with the breakfast buffet and the dinner we had in the restaurant was delicious. The rooms had a nice balcony to look out at the beautiful view. We were able to take advantage of the free use of the swimming pool at the Sportzentrum nearby. The staff gave us discount coupons for our trip up the Schilthorn as well. I would highly recommend Eiger Gueshouse for their kind and courteous staff, clean rooms, beautiful location, and terrific food.
