Location is good. Not far from entrance of Mount Titlis. Closed to train station. Five minutes walking to Coop superstore and some small shop nearby. We walked safely in evening time around the town to explore. Just be prepared to handle the cold. Staffs at reception were friendly and willing to help, including the lady who serving us a beer at the bar in the evening. Highly recommend!

Hotel Central, Engelberg, Switzerland :-. Engelberg is a very small town or village. Hotel Central is located next to the Engelberg Main Train Station with connections to Lucerne, Dallenwil or Stans. Wi-Fi access as well as private parking are offered for free at the hotel. All rooms are bright with wooden furniture. Allthe facilities such as free wifi and parking, TV, safe and private bathroom with bathtub or shower and a hairdryer etc.are available. Rooms have a balcony overlooking the snowfall, raining, Engelberg and Mountains. In restaurant Swiss and international cuisine is served there. The gondola lift to Ristis is 900 m away, while the gondola lift to Trübsee and the Klein Titlis ski region is 750 m from the hotel. Why it is called *** hotel, is a question. We experienced pleasant and peaceful stay in a clean, pollution free environment. Delicious and tasty food ( veg and nonveg ) was made available. Staff is ver cooperative, polite and prompt. We experienced first snow fall in Europe here at the morning through balcony. Highly recommended. We stayed two days here.

Although we stayed at different hotel, we had to go to this hotel restaurant for dinner as it was part of our package deal. The food was good but all the restaurant staff were miserable, rude and shouting (as if they were offering food to needy).

True to its name, Central Engelberg is centrally located in this beautiful Swiss village and is at a stone's throw distance from Engelberg rail station. Hotel has nice and clean rooms (We stayed in #302) with a beautiful view of hills surrounding this idyllic, quaint village. Only cons is that the room carpet was quite old and needed replacement. Further, the bath tub is quite high and there's no step that made it difficult for my wife, who has knee joint problem, to step into the tub. Otherwise the bathroom is excellent. The icing on sugar for this hotel was it's indian cuisine that was excellent. Overall, a very good hotel for family stay.
