Staying in Gimmelwald was one of the highlights of our Switzerland trip. The quaint village was so quiet, beautiful, and something out of a storybook. Olle & Maria were very welcoming, provided us with restaurant and hiking suggestions, were there to help but not intrusive at all. Olle was so kind to let us borrow hiking shoes and sticks and...

We really enjoyed our stay in Gimmelwald. The accommodations and hospitality were excellent. The double room is spacious and comfortable. Wifi is great. The bathroom is big and shower has great water pressure with plenty of hot water. Everything was clean and neat. We didn't get the breakfast, so can't comment on the food. We stayed during November and everything... More

My darling Husband and I saw this town on Rick Steves Europe, and we were so excited to stay there. Ollie was on the Rick Steves show, and we were excited to meet him in person. He is a very interesting person and I can't really find the words to describe him. He will tell you like it is, and... More

This is an amazing location with views that compare to no other. We are staying at the apartment with kitchen facilities, in suite and kitchen nook. The apartment is fully stocked to cook and you can even buy local cheese, milk, sausage and eggs from the neighbor. For all other needs you will take a quick cable car ride to... More

My wife and I stayed in the off season and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We travel in the off season because I can't stand tourists lol. Beautiful house and lovely room. They are a nice couple who are interesting to discuss global topics with. Nice to hear a different perspective on subjects from someone halfway around the world. It was great... More

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
