My boyfriend and I booked this hotel for a last minute weekend getaway to the Berner Oberland while we were in Zurich, and we couldn't have been happier. Murren was perfect, and we loved Hotel Edelweiss.
It's true the facade might not be awe inspiring, but the view off the lobby balcony, terrace and the mountain view rooms definitely are. We were there in June during foggy weather, and it was just jaw dropping to see the sheer mountain wall disappear and reappear from the clouds. Stunning.
The rooms themselves are clean, and well appointed. Good beds, nice fluffy blankets and enough room to put your belongings. The bathrooms were clean and pleasant too. It's not a "boutique" hotel, but then, few are are in this location.
We loved the restaurants. Their continental breakfast spread is a cut above what we usually see in Europe, and we even liked the dinner we had (there's not many choices for restaurants up the side of the mountain but this one was genuinely good). It was so nice to see the owner and her children interacting with the guests, and they were friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful.
If you're looking for a small, well appointed, family run 3-4 star hotel then, highly recommend!
