Engelberg itself is such a beautiful town and this hotel is perfect place to enjoy it .... Hotel's proximity to the station makes it ideal place to stay.... Rooms are so spacious... Food is awesome.. Specially for Indians... Staff is also courteous

As the title of my review suggests, we got a lovely cozy room which was like an angel's nest. Absolutely loved our room and the surroundings of the hotel. It was a very relaxing stay in a semi rural type setting. The fact that the hotel is situated in Engelberg, which an absolutely beautiful little town in the countryside, helps...

A great hotel in a small scenic town. The staff was so helpful for our rather large party. The rooms are wonderful, but the walls are a little thin. The food is delicious and the location is perfect. Easy walking distance to local attractions.

My husband has stayed at this hotel a couple of times on short ski trips since I found it on TripAdvisor a few years ago. This was my first visit and from the moment I made the booking enquiry via e-mail, the staff could not have been more helpful. Thanks to Stephan for his great advice on dates to travel...

Pro: Centrally located, breakfast is ok, room has nice furniture. Cons: Thin walls - you can hear the people in the room next door watching tv very good. Most disappointing thing: I booked two superior rooms for my family. On the day we left only, I realized that one room was just a normal small standard room. However, the hotel...

The location of the hotel is a short distance away from the ski mountain, situated in a town. The rooms are cosy, clean and is equipped with the necessary amenities (such as hair dryer and shower gel) despite its slightly slimmer layout and modern features. The team of friendly hospitality staff can converse in a couple of European languages, including...

We booked at Hotel Crystal, but instead upon arrival we were transferred to their other hotel (Hotel Central) just across the road (due to some refurbishing works).
