Murren is our favorite place to escape to after two or three weeks of vacationing in Europe. It is the perfect place to slow down and get away from the crowds. This time we stayed at the Eiger Guesthouse and loved it. The rooms upstairs from the small lobby/bar/restaurant are clean and comfortable. The new "train" station is just across... More

Eiger Guesthouse is conveniently located right across the street from the Murren BLM train station, which is handy for exploring the area. Despite the proximity to the train station, you don't have to worry about noise from the trains (there is none as far as I could tell). On the other side of Murren, about a 10-15 minute stroll, is...

Best introduction to Switzerland -- Ema, Jose, Felipa, Natalie and Susana were all fabulous. We stayed five nights in May and in room #1 -- which is the closest to the outdoor patio -- WHAM! in your face is the Eiger, Monch, and the back of Jungrau -- every night we found ourselves on the deck with great wifi and...

Ema & her team really make you feel at home. I was there with my 2 daughters for a ski holiday. The hotel is medium size with 12 rooms, very welcoming with an excellent dining area and bar facilities.It is a non-smoking hotel which is what we wanted. Staff took great care of children's needs, adults could mingle in bar... More

Had three great days in the Alps - everyone at Eigar Guesthouse was really helpful and happy to have us there! We stayed for 3 nights in mid May and found the restaurant was great, and our room was nice and had a great view.

Our experience differed somewhat from others that cited their good experience with staff. While the two staff we dealt with on a daily basis were pleasant, the owner, Ema completely ignored us as if we didn't belong there. Until...well let's start with the fact that we had booked well in advance for four nights. We arrived on a day that... More

Dear guests, My heart is broken!! I am so sorry that you took with you the impression that I ignored you, that I was rude and aggressive! The day you arrived I couldn't have ignored you because it was my day off and I just came to the Guesthouse to answer the emails and I don't remember seeing you. So... More

We stayed at Eiger Guesthouse for five nights towards the end of May. The staff was pleasant to deal with and were often around tending to the restaurant patrons as well as to the needs to those staying at the guesthouse. The guesthouse is located across the street from the Murren BLM station, which was very convenient. We stayed on... More

The service at the Eiger Guesthouse was outstanding. The owner Ema and her staff did everything they could to make our Murren experience memorable. We arrived on my birthday. We decided to go outside to their street side café to enjoy the beautiful mountain views. When Ema found out it was my birthday she brought us two glasses of champagne... More

It's hard to separate our review of the Eiger Guesthouse from that of Mürren overall, as one wouldn't be incredible without the other. The guesthouse is extremely conveniently located in town, right across from the train station (noise not an issue at all), and the staff are wonderfully welcoming, helpful and fun to be around. We ended up having most... More
