Our family seriously enjoyed our time at PensionGimmelwald. The owners are wonderful and gracious (A bit silly as well). Great views from the rooms. The restaurant only serves devious food and ALL service is personal. My kids insisted I write this review in the most positive voice possible because they enjoyed it so much!

We stayed in Murren for 5 days and found Gimmelwald a great place to gondola or hike to. It has 2 "self serve" cheese barn and charming typical small Swiss village feel with goats and cows with the bells. The Pension has a " honor" shop with a few vintage items which was interesting. The bar/café had great burgers and... More

I had a great stay at Pension Gimmelwald! The rooms were comfortable and clean. There's a nice bar downstairs with good food and drink, and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. They were always willing to give tips about good trails and hikes, which was very helpful. I think other posters have exaggerated the noise level - yes it's... More

We stopped here for lunch whilst walking in the beautiful mountain scenery. They run a scam for unsuspecting tourists. When you ask for a menu they don't have one but instead tell you the limited list of options, without prices. The food is average but when you come to pay the prices most certainly are not. We live in Switzerland... More

ritzihostal, Owner at Pension Gimmelwald, responded to this review

Please view this with caution, if you live in Switzerland you will know there are serious laws about accuracy of statement. To say we run a scam is a serious claim and requires some research to support it. Our menu had not returned from the printer that much is true. What was not true is that we charged a price... More

Stopped in for a beer after walking around Grimmelwald. The patio offers what may be the best view from a patio at a bar you will ever see. Prices were more reasonable than I expected (10 francs for 2 beers). The person working there was very nice....he had no problem with us eating the sausage and cheese we had bought... More

...and came back in the evening for Caroline's curry night, we weren't sure what to expect but it was awesome. Our table was waiting for us when we arrived, the curry was served quickly and was delicious. Truly a lovely place with fab views of the snow-covered mountains in a tiny alpine village high up on a ledge. Don't miss... More

Pension Gimmelwald is a relaxing family-friendly retreat located,as the name suggests, in the small village of Gimmelwald. It requires a cable ride from Stechelberg which itself is a short bus ride from Lauterbrunnen. Gimmelwald is a great hiking and sledging area. The perhaps better known village of Mürren (skiing/hiking/sledging area) is either a 40 minute walk up or another short... More

My husband and I stayed at the Pension Gimmelwald in July, and loved every minute of our stay there! You take a cable car from the valley to get to the hotel, just a short walk from the lift. Our room was rustic, with a sink in the room and bathrooms and showers down the hall. Comfortable beds. Delicious food... More

We had several meals at this property. Prices can be high but everything in Switzerland is expensive. My favorite dish was the hiker special. It is offered everyday from 6 - 7, for 10 Swiss Franks. It is just a good hearty meal. Burgers are big and tasty. Just a friendly well, well decorated pub/restaurant. Our waitress was Carolyn, she... More

I really want to be fair to these guys because the staff is fantastic and the Pension Gimmelwald knows exactly what it is. I made a mistake in my booking that is not the fault of the building in terms of what I was expecting vs. what is ended up being. I should preface this review by saying that if... More
