Stayed here for three days while skiing in Engelberg. This is a super cosy hotel. Friendly and helpful staff, nice atmosphere, great breakfast and a very good restaurant. Wonderful location with view over the entire city. Close to the ski lifts and the hotel offers a free bus service to the lift as well. Price is reasonable - I mean... More

The Banklialp sits alongside the Engelberg ski-jump, but don't let that put you off as it looks a walk to town. It is actually only a 5 minute walk into town. The location is up a hill with the most fabulous view over Engelberg. We had a car, so the parking next to the hotel was most welcome. When checking... More

Perfect location, very friendly personnel and classic, well equipped rooms with beautiful view into the village proper. Located just outside, with 200 meters walking distance into the village and perfect shuttle service to ski lift! Works best for small groups for active holidays, will be back next winter for skiing

This review is on the restaurant portion of this business. This was our second visit to this wonderful place. The first time was a few years ago, when we looked for a lunch place while walking in the area, we lucked upon this place located just slightly uphill at the edge of the town, enjoyed the food, service and view....

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
