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

My husband and I really loved this place! We wished we could have had more nights here. The room was adequate, nothing special, but the views were amazing. The area was very quiet and peaceful with many hiking paths. Walter is a great cook, and the price for dinner here was better than any other prices we could find! We... More

There is no way you could get a room with a view like this for $116 in the states! On top of that, the homey atmosphere is great--meeting others and chatting. Tim provides excellent service and advice for hikes and other activities. Walter provides the best meals we've had in Switzerland and at the best price! We've been here three... More

My wife and I enjoyed 2 nights here. The views were spectacular. I would consider this a hostel, but it is very comfortable if you have that perspective. If you have a car, you can drive to Stechelberg and park there, taking to cable car to Gimmelwald.

We stayed in April 2014. "Hotel" is a misnomer....this is more of a hostel. We were aware it was rustic, but at the rates charged it needs improvements. Lumpy beds, skimpy pillows and towels, and you still need to put a coin in for a shower. The heat only comes on at 10:30 or so, so if you retire before... More

On our 1 month Europe trip, Gimmewald and Hotel Mittaghorn were by far the most memorable! We cannot wait to go back one day! We stayed for 3 perfect days. We met wonderful people at the family style dinners. It was such a magical and peaceful place to stay!

My friends and I stayed at Walters place in 2004 and it was a great experience. You can't ask for better scenery than the Mittaghorn mountains. Everyone at the hotel was nice and inviting and the place is full of charm. The food was great as well as the company. I hope to go back again one day soon.

My fourth trip to this place and it gets better every time. The owner Walter is a true gentleman and has incredible stories to share. I hope he never changes the place. His assistant Tim does a great job making sure you get to the place and knows all of the best hiking trails no matter what the weather is... More

Loved the location and meeting Walter was the highlight! After hearing his stories I can almost hear the laughter in the bar from years gone by. However...as sad as it is..those days are gone, I think the hotel needs some TLC to bring it back to where is was when I'm assuming Rick Steves gave it a raving review. The... More

Spent 3 nights with Walter and Tim in June 2013. Room was charming, even the funky coin shower. Reminded me of boarding school days with timed showers. My husband and I competed with each other to see who could shower without a second coin. Mountain views from our window were stunning. Comfortable beds. Slept like a log. Fresh air, cows... More
