What a fantastic hotel! My favourite one ever!
The view from the balcony is absolutely stunning. The view even from the toilet seat was better than almost everywhere else I have stayed (looking up towards Wengen).
The size of our room? It was enormous - had a table and another small bed in the corner as well as two singles. There was plenty more space and a large balcony which was on the "main road" (a little old man with sheep went down it one afternoon - although local buses do go past - and can take you to the Trummelbach falls which are amazing - and the bus stop is right outside the hotel). The bathroom was modern and very spacious too - with a hair dryer if you needed it and shampoo/body soap dispensers.
It is situated above a Sports Shop - but you never get any noise from it.
It has recently been taken over by the hotel Oberland opposite and this is where you have your breakfast. Usual continental breakfast - good honest food. But the lunch and evening meals are great here - we liked them so much we took ALL of our meals here. Ok so they are not cheap but this is Switzerland and you'll pay an arm and a leg to eat ANYWHERE.
All of the staff - especially the female manager - were lovely.
I'm sorry but I cannot rate this hotel highly enough. I cannot wait to return one day. My only regret is that I only booked here for two nights rather than two weeks... or the rest of my life!
