I went to this hotel on a hike of the Bernese Oberland Traverse and this was the highlight of my trip. The hotel is a tough day hike from the valley but there are stunning waterfalls and stunning mountain scenery on the way. There is an outside terrace where you can grab a beer or wine and watch the waterfall... More

Its a strenuous 3 hr hike from Stechelberg to the Inn but well worth it. The views from the Terrace are amazing as you look up at the great walls of the Breithorn. As others have indicated, the accommodations are simple and rustic. The food is excellent and the beer is cold. It is truly a "special" place and deserving... More

An uphill hike of about 10 miles or so from anywhere or by helicopter. That's the only way here. Absolutely breathtaking views of the Alps and waterfalls. Family owned. The nicest people ever!! No electricity, Wi-Fi or air conditioning. Just perfect. Wonderful food and deserts. Very reasonably priced adult beverages. Booked through a trekking company so I don't know the... More

We loved staying here during our hiking trip through the Alps. We booked a private room, and it was absolutely charming. The view from the bedroom window was spectacular, and the romantic candlelight dinner was a treat. The place feels quite rustic -- there are no showers or hot running water. But we had wash basins in the room, adding... More

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
