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). This was great news as Hotel Central was very nice, staff were very helpful, breakfast was very good (including gluten free bread if you inform them in advance), location was perfect location, just...

We stayed in this hotel in Engelberg for two days as a part of a package tour of Europe. We found this hotel reasonably good with Indian food, helpful staff and excellent location near the railway station, shopping area and close to the entry point to Mt Titlis. Besides the memorable trip to the top of Mt Titlis, a stroll...

We had been to Engleberg this september 2016 and had a good experience at this hotel. The location is good and is close to the Engleberg railway station and bus stop. The cable car ticket/boarding station to Mount Titlis is about 10-15 min walk. The view from my room was really impressive. Could see the snow covered Mountain ranges. My...

The rooms are small but cozy, there is a small balcony which overlooks the mountains. Very close to the lake and my titlis base point. The best part about the hotel is the food. They have Indian restaurant with the great Indian chef serving warm and great buffet for breakfast and dinner.

Really nice hotel with all facilities looking very modern. Nice bathroom and beds. The hotel and the Indian restaurant next door were both expensive but that is typical in Engleberg. Stayed during the summer and it was well located for hiking trails and ski lifts.

We stayed here when we were on tour of Europe. We stayed at NH and Novotels in Paris and Germany as well. When you compare these with Central, you WILL feel the difference. The service is what this hotel lacks. When we entered the room, the lock was broken, so was the telephone and the safe. Also all the cables...

Almost adjacent to the rail station. Small but clean rooms. Great views from the windows though. The restaurant below is an Indian restaurant and it serves the BEST food possible. What an amazing buffet!!
