We spent a week in Engelberg amid absolutely spectacular weather, and the Schweizerhof was a great place to stay. It is just a few steps right around the corner from Engelberg's little bahnhof. If you're travelling by train, this is super convenient. It's also located within easy walking distance of the town, shops, restaurants, the monastery and the gondola to... More

I was here with my family in Sept. & October 2013, The family room with two bunk beds for children was ideal for us. The views from the hotel of the surroundings was beautiful. Everything was closeby. The Indian restaurant nextdoor was one of the best indian restaurants in Switzerland. Base of Mount Titlis is a short walk away. Will... More

We had a large room, by Europe standards which was clean but a little dated. The bathroom is good sized and clean and we had a large balcony around two sides of our room. There is free wifi and a number of English-language Tv stations, and a small refrigerator. We haven't had breakfast yet so I can't review that!

We stayed for two nights and were disappointed. Location is good as it is centrally located in Engelberg, but the furniture is really really old. So old that patterns on the chairs in the room was totally faded and badly stained. TV was flat screen and had great range of channels for just about every nationality. Breakfast was basic with...

Fantastic hotel with excellent location near "everything" in Engelberg. It is quite small, but offers different kind of rooms (incl family rooms) and a restaurant. Very friendly service from all of the staff. Have stayed here several times, and it has always been great ! The bathroom is not very modern, but really clean and well-kept. Excellent food in the...

Very much near to Mount Titlis and close to a train station. Nice rooms & ever helping staff. For vegetarian Indians, there is a nice restaurant located next door. Even the surrounding area is very good and one can have nice leisure walk.

We recently spent a week at Hotel Schweizerhof and have to say we were very impressed with the hotel, the staff, the layout and the location. Being very close to the train station (only about 250 meters) getting off the train and getting to the hotel takes all of a minute. Yet being that close to the train station we... More

Prices in the bar cheaper than in town. Great location for everything. Great sauna & small gym/relaxation area. Will definitely go back. Well done to the... More

Staff are friendly & helpful, very sincere and patient to introduce the city with useful information, good location nearby train station, 1-2mins walk straight to the hotel. Suggested to make request in advance for higher floor with mountains view, it was so surprising that the hotel would give me a hearty reply to confirm a room reserved for me with... More
