If you're looking for corporate, clinical and anonymous then this isn't for you. If you're looking for helpful, friendly, clean, homely then this is the place to be. The outside of the hotel is stunning, in a beautiful location with AMAZING views. The owners are beyond helpful, nothing is too much bother for them. They'll book you tickets, suggest outings...

Hotel Gletschergarten is a beautiful Hotel. Every room has a balcony and our room on the corner had views looking out to the Eiger and around the corner the Wetterhorn. It was very special to sit on the balcony looking at these huge mountains. We loved the Swiss system of a separate doona for each person on the bed! Gabriela... More

I've been fortunate enough to travel through out the world and this is probably the finest family run hotel I've ever stayed in. The rooms are immaculate, the view spectacular, and the food service superb. The host and hostess owners of this family run hotel are the warmest, most hospitable people. I celebrated my 75th birthday with my wife and... More

We just spent four nights at the beautiful Hotel Gletschergarten, a family-run hotel with warm and welcoming hosts, immaculate rooms, comfortable common areas, a fantastic breakfast, and the most incredible views! From our room's balcony, we could see mountains on three sides, and we woke up every morning staring at the mountains and glaciers outside our windows. We had a... More

My fiancé and I just stayed at the Gletschergarten for two nights, and I only wish we could have stayed longer! The hotel was immaculate, but also so warm and welcoming! The hotel had the exact Swiss charm we were hoping for, and while some might say the accommodations are 'simple' it has absolutely everything you need, including private bathrooms,... More

Truly wonderful hospitality. Gabriela, Gerhard and Lars were such wonderful hosts we could not have asked for more. From the moment we arrived at the hotel to the time we drove away they were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much. They offered advice on where to go, what to do, and provided all necessary maps. You could also... More

Beautiful setting (great views of the Eiger!), wonderful food, and very nice, accommodating owners. The front desk can take care of almost any excursion in the area, which makes life very easy. Would recommend to anyone looking for a memorable stay in Grindelwald.

We have stayed at the Gletschergarten more than five times. The hotel has been run by one family since 1899, and they are wonderful hosts who speak at least five languages. This is a real Swiss chalet, gloriously decorated with more than a thousand flowering plants. The rooms have jaw-dropping views of the Jungfrau region mountains. The staff are very... More

We have been to this hotel before and it was great once again. Food is lovely and gluten free for my husband was no problem. Our room had a great view of the Eiger with a newly fitted bathroom. You can also purchase from here your tickets for the cable cars or trains which saves a lot of time when... More

Our 5 night stay in July 2015 was wonderful. The views of the mountains were unbelievably beautiful. The location of the hotel was great as it was just a short walk to shops, restaurants, gondolas and trains. The service was wonderful. The hosts made us feel like family and were very helpful by suggesting places to visit and providing us... More
