Hotel Gletschergarten has location and outstanding views going for it. Our room was nice, and the spacious balcony was a huge plus. It was especially helpful to have somewhere to hang out after our 1 year old went to bed. The curtains were also completely blackout, which helped him go to bed. Hotel owners and staff were very nice and... More

We stayed here in August 2014. Picked hotel because of trip advisor reviews and they were right. Hosts are very helpful and go the extra mile, hotel was very clean and comfortable. We hope to return in a year or two.

We recently took our first trip to Switzerland and this hotel was perfect in my opinion. It was gorgeous to look at on the outside and warm and inviting on the inside. The decor was lovely and perfectly Swiss. Staying at Hotel Gletschergarten, you feel as if you are visiting the home of dear friends. The original art work hung... More

A wonderful, family-run, hotel. Owners and family made us feel at home from the moment we arrived to the time we left. Friendly and outgoing, truly hospitable. Lovely room with a large balcony and sitting area. Very tidy and above expectation. Hotel was quiet, being a bit out of town, yet close enough to "downtown" for a short stroll. Food... More

Picked this hotel from the reviews and wasn't disappointed. Owners very friendly and gave us all the info we needed, had a lovely big room (the bed was abit squeaky) with a large balcony unfortunately it didn't get any sun not a problem as the sun shone all the time whilst we were there. The breakfast was superb with a... More

Once again we had a wonderful visit to the Hotel Gletschergarten. The region has so much to offer ... hiking, trains, gondolas, rest, recovery ... and an oasis (which is this hotel) from which to experience it all. The hospitality from Gabriella and Gary is exemplary. We look forward to our next trip. Met a couple from the USA who... More

We stayed for four days and thought the hotel was excellent. The location is superb at the foot of the Eiger and other mountains. The hotel is very attractive with so many geraniums and other flowers on the balconies and window boxes. We had a great room. The owners and staff were very helpful and attentive. There was lots to... More

We hated to leave this place, and would (will) definitely return. The high reviews are warranted. The family is wonderful, and makes the place special. Each morning they would patiently answer every question from numerous guests about the area, and suggest hiking routes. Dinner is supposedly a set menu, but they are flexible and gave us alternatives - and it... More

I had not been to Grindelwald for 30 years and I was a little worried that it would not live up to my memories. It did--and the Hotel Gletschergarten made sure that my new memories will be entirely happy ones. I have little to add to the praise by recent reviewers, which is very accurate. The hotel is at least... More

I stayed here because of the glowing reviews here on Tripadvisor. I was not disappointed. I love old fashioned cosy hotels! This one is filled with mementos which give it a really homey look. The view from the balcony is superb. The beautiful restaurant serves a set menu for hotel guests in the evening. The price of the four course... More
