We have stayed at the hotel for an extended week-end with our 2,5 year old son, and have greatly enjoyed the wonderful, helpful and accomodating staff, and all the anemities offered for the children (in-house playground, kindergarden, fish elevator, sirop fountain, animals, etc.). Our little man loved it. The scenery around the hotel is beautiful and offers many hiking trails,... More

Breakfast is superb with local specialities, dinner is delicious. It is great the children can have dinner ahead of the parents allowing them... More

My wife and I stopped by here on our honeymoon. We received a recommendation from a family friend that stayed here and they were oh so correct about how wonderful the place is! The reception we received upon arrival at the hotel was fantastic (it was appreciated after a long journey). We were given a welcome drink and given an... More

I happened to walk by the inviting terrace and decided to go for lunch. I did not regret my choice! The terrace offers breathtaking views on the surrounding mountains. Tables are kept spotlessly clean thanks to the very efficient staff. As starter I opted for the corn salad with bacon strips. The result was slightly disappointing. The bacon was rather... More

Excellent Staff. Room was perfect for a family of four. Spacious bathroom, sleeping area and winter garden with stunning views. A great base for nature lovers, with many walks directly from the door - with wild flowers, well defined paths and animals along the way. Don`t forget to take your binoculars for the view ! During the day there are... More

The Maerchenhotel in Switzerland is a paradise for children. For each age there is the right attraction. Lama-Trekking, kids-club, tennis court, wellness for children, inside jumping castle, fountain with limonade and a lot more... All the staff is very friendly and super helpful. You feel the family spirit and employees stay behind the product.

Try not to compare with many of the kinder hotels you can find in the Tyrol area. Indeed they try to do their best, but you can not compare with the all inclusive hotels in Tyrol. There are also some things that a 4star hotel should bear in mind ( for example, to change the blankets at least once in... More

This is a wonderful small hotel that goes out of its way to make the families and children welcome. Although of course not perfect, as others have pointed out, it is hard to think of how I would really improve the hotel. Rooms are sizeable and well-decorated, in our case with an amazing view over the mountains, while the creche,... More
