We arrived to the hotel early (10am) and we were able to check in right away. The room was very clean and equipped with most things you need (TV, shampoo, hair dryer, etc., but no hair conditioner - very minor issue). The beds were also clean though not very comfortable. I think the culprit was the duvet - I always... More

This was a 2nd visit for us; we weren't disappointed. We stayed 10 days at the end of the summer and had a great time. It's a real family hotel, and the Gober family (parents and 3 student-age children) pile into the dining room to eat Dad Gober's food when the guests have gone. We booked via their excellent website,... More

I was there for 2 nights during the spring. The room was clean but the bathroom very small. To go to the city center I had to walk for about 20/25 minutes. It is very close to the Mt. Titilis. As I had some problem. With the booking with booking.com I have contacted by email the owner and he was... More

Went three times this winter solely for extended weekend skiing. You can assume the fairness of the general appraisal from the other reviews. Rooms are small and clean and relatively quiet, breakfast is quite modest but fresh, its cost is lower than nearly all others in Engleberg, and, most importantly for my wife and I, there is often last minute...

Hotel Cathrin is perfectly located for the lifts to the main Titlis skiing area in Engelberg - a 5 minute walk in boots and carrying skis! The hotel is family run and suitable for people looking for some peace and quiet.I had the hotel's leisure facilities to myself on both days I used it. The sauna, steam room and plunge... More

The only positive points of Hotel Cathrin were: - clean bed - location is close to the ski lift If you are looking for the hospitality and comfort of a 3 star hotel you deserve for the room rate you pay, then you need to think further. How much they fulfill the criteria of a 3 star hotel (according to... More

The hotel room was nice with window opening towards rotair chairlift. Basic brakfast and they charged the child (3 years) breakfast as extra who just took one bread piece :).

My partner and I visited this peaceful family run hotel for 4 days skiing, We got an excellent last minute deal which included half board and lift passes, We received a very warm welcome and because we were too early for the room we were given a place to change and store our bags whilst we went out skiing.

We regularly visit Switzerland for the flowers and the mountains, and this was our third visit to the Hotel Cathrin. We can only agree with most of the reviews that it is a spotlessly clean family run hotel, and as Switzerland goes, very reasonably priced! The hotel (10 mins from town centre) is very close to the Titlis cablecar system... More

Stayed here 8 days in February. The main purpose for the trip was to go skiing with friends. And in relation to our purpose the location of the hotel is perfect as it takes just a couple of minutes to walk to the gondola that brings you up to the skiing area @ 1800 meters above sea level and all...
