This is an overdue review, my husband and I stayed in Olle and Maria's apartment for 4 nights in September and had a fantastic time. The apartment is lovely, with a nicely equipped kitchen, and very comfortable bed. Next door is a home with an honor's system refrigerator on their porch where they sell cheese, sausage, eggs and milk. Murren,... More

My wife and I stayed here on the first leg our European vacation. We stayed in the double-bedroom and had no problems at all with the shared bathroom. Olle & Maria were excellent hosts. We were a little early so we sat out on the porch (amazing views) and planned our hikes with Olle while Maria got our room ready... More

Rick Steves gives them more credit than they deserve. Gimmelwald is quaint and charming and we will look forward to staying there again, but we really felt like we were in the way for Ollie and Maria. We were reprimanded for locking our door with their key. Their breakfast is an additional $20 per person and you might as well... More

Pro's: Olle was very pleasant and knowledgable, he shared some great stories about Rick Steve's, our bottom floor apartment was clean and updated. We had a nice sitting area outside our door and had awesome views one way of Jungfrau mtn. range and another view of Gimmelwald hillside with goats and cows. Olle also did a good job on our... More

I sincerely enjoyed my stay with the Eggimman family last week. We were welcomed in to their home and I enjoyed conversing with Olle about everything from politics to Swiss History. Their double downstairs lets you operate as independently as you like. The bed was comfortable and the shower hot. Couldn't really ask for anything more!

Olle and Maria are two of the most generous and helpful people I have ever stayed with. Each day, they were happy to visit with us and offer us advice on things to do and places to go in Gimmewald and the surrounding area. The apartment was absolutely pristine - beautiful, warm, comfortable and clean. The apartment had a wonderfully... More

I had a terrible experience with Olle. On June 16/12 I booked a room for Sept. 24, 25 & 26/12. I provided a deposit of half of the total cost of this expensive B & B. On July 17/12 we had to cancel our trip. I immediately gave Olle OVER TWO MONTH's NOTICE. He would not refund my deposit. We... More

We chose this place based on Rick Steve's recommendation. It is located in Gimmelwald, a small town located above Lauterbrunnen. It is a very convenient place if you want small and quaint, and not as busy a Murren. Its also very convenient to get to Schilthorn first thing in the morning. It takes longer to get to JungFrauJoch since you... More

We just completed a 3 night stay at Olle & Maria's and the experience was wonderful. We were in their double room and our companions in the apartment. Olle suggested hikes each day based on current conditions and weather that were spot on. Of course, it's hard not to enjoy the beautiful Lauterbrunnen Valley, but my advice: listen to Ollie.... More
