Stayed in February 2015 for a Saturday night to ski over the weekend. Incredibly convenient location, a short walk from the cable car to Titlis. The hotel has free parking which is probably closer to the cable car then the far side of the normal ski car park. We had a suite which worked very well with the kids having... More

This is the best located hotel in Engelberg for access to the Titlis Mountain ski lift. It is also a short distance from the railway and to the centre of town. The rooms are small, but adequate . The breakfast buffet was satisfactory. Dinners are not served, but a number of good restaurants are nearby. The staff is very helpful.... More

Hotel is in a beautiful location and views from balcony are fantastic. Beds are more than comfy enough and breakfast is nice. Parking free and easy. However bathroom is tiny and old. As for dinner. We arrived at about 3:30 and we're told too late to book for dinner. Apparently you need to book by 10am.!! Tbh the menu looked... More

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
