I recently visited Engelberg Switzerland to Ski mount Titlis which is a very good glacier covered mountain within easy train or car travel from Zürich. Simply put the hotel Cathrin was a 15 minute walk from the train station and the best of all it was only a 5 minute walk to the main gondola station to access the mountain....

We stayed here recently while on Europr tour. It is located at a conveninet location (around 250 m) from the cable car station. The rooms are comfortable but of small sizes. One doesn't have much space to roam in the room. The bathroom is even more cramped. One doesn't have enough space to turn around in the bathroom! Breakfast was...

Stayed in February 2015 for a Saturday night to ski over the weekend. Incredibly convenient location, a short walk from the cable car to Titlis. The hotel has free parking which is probably closer to the cable car then the far side of the normal ski car park. We had a suite which worked very well with the kids having...

This is the best located hotel in Engelberg for access to the Titlis Mountain ski lift. It is also a short distance from the railway and to the centre of town. The rooms are small, but adequate . The breakfast buffet was satisfactory. Dinners are not served, but a number of good restaurants are nearby. The staff is very helpful....

We arrived to the hotel early (10am) and we were able to check in right away. The room was very clean and equipped with most things you need (TV, shampoo, hair dryer, etc., but no hair conditioner - very minor issue). The beds were also clean though not very comfortable. I think the culprit was the duvet - I always...

This was a 2nd visit for us; we weren't disappointed. We stayed 10 days at the end of the summer and had a great time. It's a real family hotel, and the Gober family (parents and 3 student-age children) pile into the dining room to eat Dad Gober's food when the guests have gone. We booked via their excellent website,...
