“Homey and comfy apartment at Chalet Gletschertal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

My husband and I and a group of friends stayed at Chalet Gletschertal in May 2012. We rented the large apartment and the adjoining studio for a total of 4 double bedrooms and 2-1/2 bathrooms for 4 nights. While the furnishings are somewhat dated, the apartment is very well kept and spotlessly clean. We enjoyed the nice kitchen which was equipped with a large fridge (large for Europe), stove and dishwasher. The only amenity we missed was a microwave, but we managed without it. The chalet has a large underground garage for parking a car. The biggest plus was the balcony with a stunning view of the Eiger and the valley below. Behind the chalet is a pasture with goats and sheep. The chiming of the bells will lull you to sleep at night. The chalet is located just 2 or 3 minutes from Grindelwald village where you can stock up on groceries at the local COOP. Switzerland is expensive for lodgings, and an apartment rental is an economical alternative to high-priced hotels. Preparing your own meals also saves money. Just be sure and enjoy the local restaurants for lunch or dinner. The food is hearty and wonderful in the Jungfrau region. If you plan a vacation with children, consider an apartment at Chalet Gletschertal. This was our second visit and we would go back in an instant.

Myself and my partners family stayed in this chalet in September. We most enjoyed our stay and absolutley loved the views from our balcony. We could not have been more happy with the chalet location and the friendly service received from Heidi and Monika, who own and run the chalet.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2009

We booked a stay over Christmas, and couldn't have been more pleased. Heidi and Monika(mother and daughter) picked us up personnally(with 2 cars) at the train station on Christmas eve, and day after day went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our vacation. The fresh rolls delivered daily are also a plus. The apartment was spotless, warm and cozy, and suited our family of 5 very well. We walked a block or so to the city bus, or took the ski bus right outside our door, so didn't feel the lack of a car. My sons(14 and 15) walked 5 minutes with their skis from our door to the Mannlichen cable car, and could be totally independant. Heidi and Monika checked in with us several times to make sure we were not in need of anything, and insisted on driving to the station on our departure day. We all are hoping to return soon!
