Hotel Mittaghorn is an old building that is truly rustic and charming. The views do not get better than this. We had room 2 on the second floor. During the day I could look out and see the mountains and hear the cowbells. At night I woke up and saw the stars twinkling over the mountains. We had a shower... More

It was everything we hoped for in Gimmelwald. The manager Tim was VERY kind and helpful, we had great conversation and hiking with the other guests. It's certainly an old building, but the rustic feel and location was ideal.

Have been here four times over the past ten years. Always the highlight of any trip. Billion Dollar views, great dinner conversions with guests. This place has so much character! Walter, Tim and the late Rose-Marie always made me feel so welcomed here.

My favourite hotel during our euro-trip was definitely at Hotel Mittaghorn! Here are my reasons: 1) Beautiful Scenery - after a good night's sleep, we wake to up breathe-taking view of the snowy mountains. Note that we went in mid-September! 2) Hotel - clean, very comfortable, WiFi available, safe surroundings all around. It was a fun challenge to take and... More

The hotel is very old, and probably needs some cleaning. There was a propane smell that was a bother. The beds not very comfortable, and it was dark and dank and kind of awkward being there. However, it is exciting just to get there by gondola, and the mountains are incredible in the Alps. I would do a day trip,... More

Out of seven stops in four countries, the Hotel Mittaghorn is the one I would most love to return to someday. Walter and Tim are wonderful hosts. Tim solicited a lot of very good advice on hikes and excursions over our breakfasts and dinners. The family style dinners (cooked by Walter himself) with Tim and the other guests were very... More

This place is a slice of heaven. We stayed for 4 nights. Tim set us up every day with an action packed day. We went hiking, biking, and climbing. As mentioned in other reviews, it is an old rustic hotel. Simple but very clean. We had so much fun that we rerouted our plan and are coming back next month.... More

Had been to Gimmerwald's hostel years ago in my backpacking days. Saw this hotel mentioned in Rick Steeves book. It was fabulous! Great value! Tim and Walter, 90 yr old owner and excellent cook, so accommodating. Simple, all unstained pine furniture, shared bath with 1 Fr shower for which Tim left Swiss francs, creaky floor boards. Woke to sun shining... More

Gimmelwald is beautiful crown in Switzerland and hotel Mittaghorn is THE jewel in this crown. We enjoyed three days here and were very happy with the location and the hotel itself. Its more like vacation rental. Though we didn't meet Walter, we had opportunity to eat tasty food cooked by ' the chef'. Tim is very knowledgable and his suggestions... More

We had a great stay for four nights at the Mittaghorn, There are hikes leading in several directions right from the hotel and you could spend a week exploring the immediate area. The room views here are without doubt the best in Gimmelwald, although you have to make the hike up the hill with your luggage to benefit from these,... More
