We stayed here in early July. This is a great starting point for hiking in Switzerland. The Binn valley offers hiking that is much more tranquil than other parts of the country. The staff were knowledgable about hiking and gave great advice about trails. This is not a town with lots of entertainment but it is a great launching point for a great hiking experience. The hotel therefore is not an urban hotel but rather a great place to have a mountain experince. As a unilingual anglophone language was never a problem at the hotel. The room was clean and we were fortunate to have our own bathroom and shower. We loved the Ofenhorn and would love to return.
