My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights out of a 2 week trip to Switzerland that started in Zurich and ended up in Geneva. We love beautiful scenery and simple hikes. This stay could not have been more perfect. One day while describing our long day to Daniel, the owner, I mentioned how amazing it was to return "home" to the spectacular views of the Jungfrau. We both recognized right away that this feeling of being at home is better than any 5 star hotel! A couple of things are worth mentioning. First, the chef at the hotel is wonderful. He does a 4-course meal almost every night which was worth the 25 chf that it cost. He uses fresh ingredients from the garden. The soups were my favorite. Secondly, Daniel is a wealth of information. It was very beneficial to go over the map and plan excursions with him. We purchased a Swiss Saver Pass for our basic transportation needs and museums, but to access some of the amazing sites at higher elevations, including the wildly popular "Top of Europe" you have to pay extra for the cog trains and gondolas that take you there. It was worth it because if you go to Switzerland for the beautiful alpine views and some hiking, then you just have to pay for it. One of our hikes to Schnigge Platt from Mannlichen was not quite as pleasant at the end because of a very steep ascent that I was not prepared for. My husband talked me through it, but it would have been better had we consulted with Daniel and staff beforehand so that we would know this was an alternate route due to a path closure. Finally, I have to mention that this hotel sits fairly low in the village as do many of the hotels so it was a real workout every morning to climb the hill back up to the train station. This was not a problem for us, but more than once we thought about some of our friends, who like us are in their 60's but are not in terribly good physical condition and therefore would not be too happy with the climb. All in all, we felt that the Edelweiss was a perfect place for us!
