This time I had a pleasant room on the ground floor with instant access to the garden with its easy chairs and tremendous views of the Eiger mountain. There was the usual welcome complimentary bottle of water on arrival. I feel I know the family quite well now with their friendly service and great hospitality. I was even invited by... More

The rooms are clean and classy. The breakfast is varied with great service. Alex got us rail passes and we paid at checkout. They had umbrellas... More

Located right in the heart of town and less than 5 minute walk to trains and buses. Beautiful property with unbelievable views and very gracious hosts. I was surprised by how big and nice the room was, since most European lodging seems to be on the small side. I would definitely stay here again.

Very pleasant hotel a short walk from train station (steep, but so is almost everything in Grindelwald). Typically Swiss, very clean, nice buffet breakfast. Owners very helpful with luggage, hiking advice, etc. No AC or fan (also typical) but windows open wide and views are excellent.

Stayed there for three nights. Best staff, best view, best location. For us it was perfect.. Near the railway for Jungfrau and the main streets. Waking up and seeing the Eiger Nordwand is just spectacular. Will defidently be coming back next year.

We enjoyed very much our stay at the Hotel. It is family run and we like the personal attention that goes with staying in a small hotel. We stayed for two nights with our daughter and had the triple room on top floor. It had a breath-taking view of the Eiger and the valley below. The location is great. If... More

From the same location, three different mountain bus lines drive to Bussalp (Summer & Winter), to Waldspitz (summer) and the Grosse Scheidegg (summer). Wellness oasis with whirlpool, Finnish sauna and Turkish steam bath After an eventful day, we welcome you in our wellness oasis, where you can give your body the necessary relaxation in the bubbling Wetterhorn whirlpool. Subsequently, recharge your batteries in the Finnish Block sauna, our Turkish steam bath or the infrared cabin Physiotherm or enjoy a wonderful massage.
