5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Brilliant hotel. Authentic 114 year old pension. The family who own it really care about their guests being happy. Very clean and well set up rooms. Fantastic location. Wonderful fireside lounge bar. And a lift so no lugging bags upstairs. Close to the cablecar to the First skifield. Nothing that could be faulted. The best place we have ever stayed in Europe. Don't miss this one.

We have just had a brilliant week skiing, as a family staying at The Hotel Gletschergarten. All the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough to help. With a skibus stop outside the door all the slopes were readily accessible. The food was excellent and they catered for small children and special diets with equal ease.

Room Tip: The hotel is in a quiet area the best views are to the South and West but there are no bad rooms.

This is a charming old mountain hotel with all one needs for an active holiday - including a restorative new sauna. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful. The location is quiet and only a few minutes walk from the town centre.

We had a corner room on the highest floor and the views of Eiger from our balcony/windows were magnificent! The hotel is located in a quiet area and yet within easy walking distance thru the shopping street to the train station. There are also free buses to the train station with the bus stop right in front of the hotel. Breakfast, which is included in the room rate, was excellent with a wide variety of pastries, cold cuts, fruits and cereal. Special thanks to the owners for their warm reception and prompt response to all our queries and requests. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to be back real soon!

We stayed in the Apartment Eiger, a cosy one bedroom apartment . 10/1 - 17/1.all you need & Great view from the balcony . From the moment Gery picked us up from the train station everything was perfect. Gabriella & Gery were very hospitable and helpful with booking passes and trips etc....better than the tourist office! Nothing to complain about and would highly recommend the apartments for more room. Can't fault it. Look forward to another trip here in the not to distant future. . Thankyou Gabriella ,Gery & family.
