The staff were really friendly, and nothing was too much trouble, except for when I asked for an iron. I was told that they have had 'a bad experience' so there was a strict no ironing policy. The room was immaculately clean, and really spacious for a hotel room. Incredible view from our balcony too. If my shirt wasn't so... More

The reception is so rude. Their hateful attitude has ruined my stay in Grindelwald. I will never come back to that town, even though the mountains are magnificent but almost always hidden by the clouds, the fog.

Nice located in a back street of Grindelwald centre, nice and cozy atmosphere inside, pretty new hotel. I did not sleep over, but we had raclette with 4 persons, including 2x 0.5 litre of white wine: 183.60 CHF!! The raclette pricing with 27.- per person was perfectly ok (portions are huge), but you really feel tricked that a 0.5l bottle... More

I stayed here for a couple of days in sept, had parking across the street which was nice. Room was the typical small rooms but it was nice and quiet. I didnt test the breakfast because i was out of there early each morning.

Frustrating stay because the 3 bedroom apartment we rented was updated nicely. Chalet #226. Kind of modern, not your typical Alpine decor, ample sized rooms. All floors are ceramic tile or wood laminate so everything echoes. Badly. But what I just couldn't get over was the fact that you couldn't access the wifi unless you were in the lobby/office area....

This hotel is fairly close to the train station,and is certainly within walking distance, particularly if your luggage has wheels. Our room was on the first floor and extremely large, with a very large balcony (which was somewhat strange in that it was accessible by the library (public space) and the other room on the first floor, with only half...

This hotel is right along the main road in Grindelwald, so it is handy to everything including the train station up to Jungfraujoch and the gondola to First. The hotel was clean and pretty, and the rooms were nice. The bathroom included a bathtub and was clean. Unfortunately there was no wifi in the rooms - only in the restaurant... More

Last year we stayed in the Bernerhof Hotel, which was nice, but they did not know how to handle ultra marathon runners. The Hotel Hirschen was not only cheaper, but more modern than the Bernerhof. They were prepared for the runners and had a breakfast buffet ready from 3am for those running the Eiger Ultra Trail. On the Sunday we... More

It was a good novelty to have the large bath tub in the room, they provided bath salts so it was a great way to end the day. The room was huge and the bathroom floor was heated. The mountain views could only be seen if you walked out on to the balcony, and they were excellent views! Breakfast selection... More

Hirschen is a great hotel. Central location and it's proximity to First Bahn is great. We've stayed in the love room which comes with a romantic tub. The hotel lacks a hot tub so if you're looking for a treat, i'd recommend the love room with its own tub. (It's not a jakuzzi but still a comfortable tub) The staff... More
