At the beginning and end of the hike, we were here, for meals and overnight. Authentic Swiss hotel that matches the surroundings well. The couple who run it are very nice and helpful, and the food is good. Getting the bill took more time than it should but everything was correct. Nice garden area for drinks as the day ends.

We spent two days in this refurbished hotel. Built in 1883, it is one of the icons in Alpine Hotel History. It was closed in 1980 and taken over by a fund. It was re-opened, after a serious renovation, in 2008. We had a room on the first floor, renovated in Belle Epoque style, with a wash table in the... More

This is one of Switzerland's classic, historic hotels. Don't expect any frills, no TV in room, no minibar - very plain, very simple. The bed was good and the en suite was perfectly adequate. The food was excellent both in the evening and at breakfast. I didn't appreciate the waitress laughing at my attempt to speak German and I didn't... More

The Hotel Ofenhorn was built in 1883 and is located in the Binn Valley, easily reachable by public transportation; there are buses every two hours from the Rhone valley villages of Fiesch or Lax up to Binn. The hotel and opens from a few days before Christmas to a few ones after the New Year and then again for 2-3... More

I first came to Hotel Ofenhorn after an aborted attempt in August, 2006 at the Bortellicke, which was impassable due to snow. I'd walked nearly six hours and arrived at the Hotel Ofenhorn, almost empty at that period when the Swiss Germans are mostly finished with their vacations. It was a haven of comfort and cleanliness. I dragged my husband... More

We stayed here in early July. This is a great starting point for hiking in Switzerland. The Binn valley offers hiking that is much more tranquil than other parts of the country. The staff were knowledgable about hiking and gave great advice about trails. This is not a town with lots of entertainment but it is a great launching point... More

This hotel has a lot of character as it is one of the Swiss Historic Hotels and it has recently undergone extensive renovation. However, we thought it was very overpriced, possibly as a result of the recent expenditure. For CHF170 per night for a double room, we had shared toilet and shower facilities on the landing, and then only 3... More
