Stopped here on our hike from Grütschalp to Stechelberg just because it looked like an interesting spot. Grabbed two beers and headedicated out to the rear beer gardent for a fantastic and peaceful view. The woman who served us was funny and personable. If you have the chance to stop in this town, do it. Head to the pension and... More

We stopped for coffee and hot chocolate on our walk from Murren to Gimmelwald and it was just before tie tram station. A nice place for a break. Note: the kitchen closes September 1, through the rest of the season. If you are on a hike, I suggest you eat in Murren.

We loved this place! We stayed at lots of big name hotels during our vacation last week but loved this place the most. Each night there was a great optional home made dinner (if you wanted to have dinner there), homemade soup and a main course! Nice couple with a lovely daughter in an authentic Swiss House in a lovely... More

Stayed here summer 2011, my favorite hotel of my 2 months in Switzerland. Easy booking, friendly and personal service, I felt 100% safe here as a single female traveler. They were also able to accommodate my severe nut allergy. Fond memories of this place!

This is a very friendly and homelike place, run by a British/German couple. The dining room features a couple of couches, comfortable spots to have a beer and discuss the day's hiking. Owner Dave loves to swap travel stories, his wee daughter plays happily and a couple of cats roam the grounds. Rooms are comfortable and spotless, with everything you... More

My wife and I are regular visitors to Pension Gimmelwald, and we are never disappointed. This quaint hotel, in operation for over 100 years, with it's creaky floors, rustic furniture, wonderful bar, great food, and a terrace with incredible views is just what's needed for a relaxing vacation. The hospitality at the hotel is first rate, thanks to Sabine, David... More

Easy and laid back way to explore this side of the region. Great views and wonderful owner! 3 minute walk to cable car. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable. Walls are thin but most of the people there are families and people just looking to sleep once they get in their room. Food and beverage served here, decent prices for... More

I'd always wanted to experience living in a Swiss chalet-this one was so quaint-over a hundred years old, half lace curtains, window boxes full of flowers, beautiful mountain views, red traffic-worn rugs, old wooden carved furniture, low ceilings and very squeaky floors....We had a large 3- bed room up stairs for 4 nights in the middle of summer. Sabine, always... More

I spent great 3 nights in Pension Gimmelwald. If you're coming to this part of the world, this is the place for you to commune with the Alps and sleep in an old place filled with lots of Swiss-mountain charm and its truly welcoming staff and owners who serve great food on a terrace that has one of the best...

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!
