Almost one year has passed since we stayed here and I dream to come back someday! My husband and I hiked the Tanzbodeli trail from Gimmelwald on a fortunately beautiful mid-June day. On our ascent to Tanzbodeli we passed a local farmer working on his fence before bringing up his cows for the summer. This trail can be difficult to... More

Staying at this guesthouse is unbelievable! The views hiking to and from it are spectacular and when you are there you are surrounded by the most incredible mountain vistas one could imagine. I am dreaming of returning.

I've decided to stay in the hotel because of the beautiful name for the hotel, travellers call it 'Candlelight hotel' and i thought celebrating birthday in the mountain is kind of awesome, and so my friend and I hiked up to stay for one night. It was a beautiful hike with amazing view from Gimmelwald up to Obersteinberg, steep but... More

I agreed to stay here based on the reviews from previous visitors. It was a good place to stay--the first mountain hotel for me. We walked up the long way round on an old hunting trail. We were welcomed with drinks with an amazing view. The rooms are basic and quiet. The meal was just what we needed--soup then tasty... More

We wanted to explore upper Lautenbachtal in more extend and experience the mountain atmosphere more intense. So we decided to stay the night in Berghotel Obersteinberg and reserved a room in advance. We really loved the hospitality, the rooms and the food. Everything was excellent. We were prepared for a basic setting, no electricity, no heating, no warm water, no... More

This hotel is known for its unforgettable views so you better hope that you arrive there on a sunny day as there is not much else to recommend it. The hike up along the Lauterbrunnen Valley is beautiful and relaxing but then becomes strenuous as you head up to Obersteinberg. We were lucky to hike without rain until we reached... More

We arrived at this hotel after a long walk/hike from Lauterbrunnen. We left Lauterbrunnen in a light rain, but it stopped after about an hour and we were in just some cloudy and cool weather. We went through Stechelburg on the way. When we arrived, it began to rain and instead of sitting outside, went in and check in to... More

The hotel is comfortable, if not rustic, but that's what you stay there for. The views of the alps are unforgettable, and you are wonderfully rewarded for your three hour strenuous hike up the mountain. So worth it! The beds were comfortable if not a bit damp but it had been raining for several days prior to our arrival. We... More

We thought people should understand what you are getting into here and think carefully about the weather before going. Rustic hotel that could be fun in good weather, however, a bit hard in bad weather. The reason to go here is for a hike, away from touristy areas and a rustic experience. We unfortunately hit bad weather, hiking in thick... More

We are a family of four (kids age 10 and 13) and did the hike from Gimmelwald to Obersteinberg, stayed overnight, then back down to Stechelberg. We made the reservation at Obersteinberg through the tourist office in Stechelberg and that worked out fine. Be forewarned - the hike from Gimmelwald to Obersteinberg is no joke. It took us 3.5 hours... More
