5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Even though it has no electricity, nor hot running water, I'd rank this among the very finest hotels I've stayed in, including the Park Hyatt Tokyo and the Amangiri. It's a fair walk to get there, but remotenessthe wonderful setting, simple but well kept rooms, and hearty food, make this an idyllic place.

This was a wonderful experience in a fantastic setting. We hiked from Stechelberg, and arrived fairly quickly. It is a pretty steep hike. After a short rest and dropping our packs, we went for a beautiful dayhike to Oberhornsee and Schmadrii Hut. The scenery is just fantastic and the hiking is superb. The hut itself is spotlessly clean and the... More

The trek to this hut from the valley floor is not easy and we were looking forward to a relaxing evening...... One of our party described the place as romantic..... not quite sure of his judgement after our experience.... The location is fantastic, the views are outstanding and we were fortunate to have great weather. The proximity of the farm... More

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
