We stayed in a balcony room facing the train station for 8 nights in July, and it was lovely! Highly recommend getting a balcony room if you come here, it was so much fun to sit and watch all the hikers returning from their travels at the end of the day.
Ema gave us a discount on the room for staying so many nights, too.
This was a very good base location for all our Switzerland activities: hiking near Murren, visiting the Schilthorn, renting bikes to explore the Lauterbrunnen valley, paragliding in Interlaken (SkyWings!), and even visiting the Jungfrau -- everything was easy to access with the fantastic train system. We used a SwissPass, and almost all our travels were included.
Our room had comfortable beds, good water pressure in the shower, ample shelf space in the bathroom, and cozy linens. Ema even suggested a hike for us one day, which turned out to be WAY better than the one we were planning to do! All the hotel staff we encountered were very nice, too.
The only drawback we encountered was that we got rather tired of the same breakfast items by about day five of our trip. That was remedied with a trip to the Piz Gloria for the breakfast buffet on Day Six, but it would be lovely if the Guesthouse could have the cook come for breakfast just a couple days per week, and make some bacon and eggs for the hotel guests. But the lack of hot breakfast is certainly not a deal breaker here, with everything else this place is doing right.
I'd highly recommend making Eiger Guesthouse your base for a nice Swiss summer vacation!
