Location of the hotel and the view from balcony can't get any better. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was good and had enough items on menu. Not-so-great were the rooms which could have been bigger and the balcony which should have been private instead of shared.

The famous Swiss hospitality is quite limited in quantity at this hotel/restaurant! Rooms appear recently remodeled and feature a great view. Nice patio, great bathroom and clean room. However, internet is only free in the lobby. There is an extra charge for in-room internet. While down in the lobby, we heard a guest complain about termites! The hotel provides a... More

We arrived at this hotel before check in and were told the dorm was not ready and needed to be cleaned. We waited around until 14:00 and asked if the dorm was ready yet. The receptionist told us the room had still not been cleaned but we were welcome to go up and someone would get to it later. We... More

We made a quick stopover with the main objective to take gondola Titlis. The accommodations were very comfortable for our family of four including 2 adult children. Room was quiet. Views were outstanding and walk into town was easy and pleasant. Front desk clerk was very informative and helpful, providing good dining options and assistance on experiencing Mt. Titlis. Breakfast... More

I need to begin by writing a little bit about the warmth I felt just stepping off at the train station in Engelberg. Having arrived around 8pm, there were not too many people in sight to ask for directions. So we walked into the nearest hotel (Hotel Central) to ask where the Hotel Banklialp was. The very kind lady at... More

This hotel is very charming. All made of wood, it looks very "swiss" and the furniture is very typical. I had a small room with one bed but had a balcony where you could see the mountains and all the town. A very nice view ! The staff was very nice and they even drop me to the train station... More

What a disappointment! We were recommended to book a table here but the cheese fondue was liquid and dull, the bread cut in far too big cubes, the service disastrous and the wine tasteless. Such a pity as the setting is inviting and the view very romantic.

This is the 2nd time I have been here. The location is really quiet, 15 minutes walk from Engelberg center. The hotel is is a kind of old fashioned alp hotel you find a lot of in Switzerland and Austria. Pinewood chairs, pinewood walls, pinewood bar and so on. Some reviewers claiming for redecoration, but to what without removing the... More
