Our stay at Hotel Blumental could not have been more wonderful! We arrived on August 1st, Swiss National Day. We ate at the hotel's restaurant, and while the portions were small, the food was delicious. We highly recommend eating there. Because it was Swiss National Day, a small parade came right by the restaurant/hotel, led by young men swinging traditional bells. It was exactly what you'd want as a tourist staying in a small Swiss town. Then we went up to the Athletic Center where we heard a speech (by the mayor?), a small band performed, and we heard the Swiss national instrument, the alphorn. Again, what an experience! The night ended with a fireworks show and drinks at the bar at Hotel Eiger. We are glad we chose Blumental over Eiger because Blumental is deeper into town, whereas Eiger is directly across from the tram, and saw lots of tourist movement.
The hotel itself was lovely. Ralph was extremely helpful, and advised us on trips and scheduled our breakfast the next morning at the Schilthorn, the "007 breakfast." Take advantage of it, by the way.
Our room had a gorgeous view (albeit between two buildings) of the Alps. Breathtaking view. We had a shared balcony, but this added to the charm, as we were able to meet our neighbors.
Breakfast was included, and it was satisfying.
The hotel was quiet, and the whole town of Murren has a wonderful ambience after the tourists leave for the day. We cannot wait to return, and would definitely be staying here again. Maybe we'll even dare to try paragliding.
