“Family run”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We were at the Hotel Elmer im March 2012, with a group of 30 people for a ski-weekend. Everything was well organised (Check-In for a group in a relativ little hotel can be tricky). The dinner was very good. The service warm and friendly.

The kids played around everywhere in the Hotel and the staff felt very well with that. (o.k. the Hotel was almost full with our group.)

The rooms are not modern, but clean. I think some rooms are allready renovated, ours was not.

We enjoy the stay and will be there next march again.

Hotel Elmer is in Elm, a small quiet village a shot walk away from the ski slopes and cable car. The rooms are nicely decorated but to be honest its the view that gets you. Our room had a very big window overlooking the snowy mountains and the odd log cabin. The owner was very nice and happy to chat, the food was good but expensive (as with most places in Switzerland).

The tobogganing is great for people who cant or don't want to Ski / snow board and the views are amazing.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2009

I came to Elm to see, learn, hike and relax and this hotel was perfect for me. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, The room was comfortable and very clean. The food was good. The location was central in town yet I felt like my hikes began the second I left the hotel. They also had free Wifi. One word of warning, everywhere I went in Switzerland the church bells rang during sleeping hours. If you're a light sleeper, bring ear plugs. Otherwise, Elm is one of the quietest places on earth.

Really cozy family-driven hotel!

Hotel owners are friendly and really service-minded . They will fullfill every strange wish you may have.

I bought the stay with the "abendmenu", which I can recommend - in the morning you get the "Hotel Elmer News" - general information about whether and skiing conditions and with that you also choose between two great 4 course menus.

Beatiful mountain view - view of Martins Loch and the mountains from the rooms. Uploaded picture is from my room on 2.floor.

Great skiing area - almost no T-lifts and there are plenty of both easy, hard and off pist areas (showboard playground as well).

Try the suvorow place (restaurent / small bar) down the street.

Oh yes - in the winter: try their outdoor jacuzzy after skiing :-D

  • Liked — Service, food, view, cozyness
  • Disliked — If you dont like mixing with locals - this is not a place for you. Locals frequently visit to get a cop of coffee or a beer for a chitchat.
