Exceptionally friendly, helpful staff. Roomy rooms, good balcony. Handsome flower boxes all around. Great place, good food. Excellent mixed salads and breakfasts. Dinner beef was superb one night; ham a bit dryly overcooked another night. Laundry machine is great convenience 5 CHF per wash, and per dry. Busy main town street outside quiets down after 8pm. Nice location away from... More

We had the good fortune of snaring a room in the peak of a summer weekend at Hotel Gletschdrgarten, and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The rooms enjoy views of the nearby postcard perfect snow capped peaks, and the 4th generation owners have done an excellent job infusing modernity in certain key areas (eg the washroom and shower areas)...

We stayed just one night at the lovely hotel Gletschergarten while hiking through the Alps. Gabriella was kind enough to pick us up at the train station with our luggage. It really felt like she and Gary were welcoming us into their home. Our room had a beautiful view of the glacier from our balcony. The room was spacious and... More

Wow, seven days in the heavenly foothills of the Alps! Gabriella and Gary welcomed us to their magnificent hotel, but it felt more like they allowed us into their home. We enjoyed every moment of our trip: days were filled with scenic beauty and nights with economical home-cooked meals and great stories from our hosts. One of our best trips... More

We were guests of very generous cousins who said we would love this place, and we did. Service is so friendly. We were very well looked after. Evening meal is delicious,as is breakfast. Even with hiking every day it is hard not to gain weight! Views are spectacular from the front rooms. 17 and 18 have a super and very... More

Perfectly located as the descent from Grosse Scheidegg joins the "main road" through Grindelwald. Lovely hotel, very nice staff, absolutely stunning views from the south facing balcony onto the Fiescherhorn and Eiger. Great dinner and breakfast. Only minor niggle was for me, as a light sleeper with a 6 hour jet lag issue, I found the combination of a very... More

The hotel is in the upper part of the village, on the other side from the banhof (train station). Consequently it is quiet, away from the tourist traps, yet a short walk to the gondolas taking you to the "Top of Europe" (a trip well worth making). The view from my room's balcony was beautiful and the room itself had... More

We just returned from Switzerland and our stay at this wonderful hotel was the highlight of our trip. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Gabriela and shown to our room by her husband Gerhard - what a great personal touch to be received by the owners!! Our room was on the front facing the Alps on the top floor... More

Great choice when staying in Grindelwald. Staff is absolutely outstanding. Room was spacious and clean. Good location with easy walking to restaurants and shopping. Staff is able to arrange tickets and activities for you directly. Hiking right out your door! Breakfast was also very nice! No complaints at all, highly recommend!
