Walking the tmb, not impressed by this unfriendly, un welcoming hotel, staff will do everything to ignore you... Dinner was ok, breakfast very decent. Rooms are basic, fine for the price. Happy to leave Switzerland though, as they are so rude and un welcoming.

I would have given this a "terrible" rating but the food was tasty. Otherwise, the room was nothing special, in fact, it might have well been a refuge and certainly not a hotel. The towels were paper thin, the beds tiny singles, my roommate had a broken light above her bed, and the showers were shared down the hall. The... More

Stayed here on our TMB walk. On arriving at the hotel the woman was unfriendly and rude as was the man who checked us out. After having spoken with locals they informed us that this hotel has a reputation for rudeness. If you stay here don't expect any hospitality. Having said this, restaurant staff was good.

Bare essentials in the rooms with very thin bath towels and our TV didn't have a remote. At least the mattress was firm enough and the room relatively clean. Breakfast was adequate but not inspiring and service pretty much the same. It just didn't seem to have the atmosphere that most of the other places on our TMB walk had,... More

Our room was spacious. Although the decor was dated, it was adequate as we were only here for one night on the way through on the TMB. There was a nice attached dining room. Overall, We found other places in Switzerland on the TMB that were better value.

Great location in La Fouly. Check in was not great, myself and a French man arrived at the same time and the stress was too much for the receptionist who got very flustered. We were shown to the boot room and then eventually to our room. We had an en suite with hairdryer and body wash. TV and safe in... More

We stayed at Edelweiss hotel on our TMB and enjoyed it, especially after a big disappointment at the previous station (Elena Refugio). We arrived after a long day, got a good private room, the facility was good, the view from the room and the restaurant was great, and the food was better than other TMB locations. We needed help with... More

Mary S must have had a better breakfast than we did because we didn't get the same selection that she mentions, maybe because we stayed in the dorm. Overall there wasn't enough staff to provide good service. I booked for a group of 12, but they set a table for 6 and when I told the girl she asked me... More

We four Australian's had a warm welcome at this hotel while on the TMB, the rooms are basic but very comfortable, I had a very comfortable bed and the views are lovely, it was warm enough to sleep with the window open and hear the sound of the river, very relaxing. Dinner and breakfast were exceptional and the chef/owner came... More

We stayed here whilst walking the TMB in September and found the hotel very comfortable, especially after some of the mountain huts. The room had a delightful view of the stream and the balcony was great for drying our washing! The receptionist made a point of apologising for keeping us waiting whilst she dealt with another customer and she was... More
