This was our second visit to Murren and when we return again, we will be staying with Denise. We stayed in the Geisstiliboden Apartment. Is it 5 star luxury? No, but we were neither expecting nor wanting that for this trip. The accommodations were clean and we had plenty of room. The view was spectacular. There were 3-4 nights that... More

My brother and I were backpacking through Switzerland and we stayed here for two nights. Denise was very nice and runs a great B&B. The location in Murren is perfect. Our second floor room had great views of the Alps and was nice and clean. I would recommend this place to anyone going to Murren.

We stayed for 5 nights, and it was one of the best places we've ever stayed in all of our travels. The 2nd floor room we had was spacious and comfortable, with great views of the mountains. Denise is the perfect host, with plenty of advice and insight but never intrusive. The breakfast was friendly and tasty. It really felt... More

We stayed at Chalet Fontana for three nights and had two rooms. The rooms faced the mountains and had a great view. The rooms were comfortable and Denise was very helpful with the hiking information, sights to see and weather forecasting. The breakfast was great and had a lot of variety. We enjoyed staying at the Chalet and talking to... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and loved every moment of it! Denise is extremely welcoming and helpful. She helped recommend hiking trails, as well as recommend some activities. The room was the perfect size-and sink is in the room as well. Nice because the bathroom is communal-which turned out to work out fine. I was worried at first, but because... More

Went as a large group with kids. The chalet is so charming on the main yet charming little street with great views of the mountains from the rooms. Denise runs a tight organized shop by herself. Highly recommended for all ages.

We couldn't imagine a more perfect base for our many dayhikes in the Bernese Oberland than the Chalet Fontana. We had a spectacular view of the Jungfrau from our room, which was very quiet, clean, and comfortable. The windows and walls seem to have excellent sound insulation. Having a shared bathroom and kitchen area actually made our stay homier and... More

It's the same story I always have: Fabulous in every way, and I Highly recommend this place if you can find a vacancy there. Denise also rents another private apartment Geisstiliboden which is fantastic. You can't go wrong with Denise!

My college-age daughter and I stayed here and loved Murren and our lodging. The proprietress is very friendly, efficient and effervescent with good ideas on managing time and the weather. The breakfast is delicious and filling and conversation was lively among the guests. We shared a bath and never had a problem. In our room we had a sink, which... More
