I just want to second what everyone else is saying about the Caprice hotel. Everything that they say is true. This was our second trip in less than a year and we're already planning a 3rd. It's perfect - location, views, hosts, breakfast, dinner, wine list, you buy your rail tickets there, get advice on where to hike. It feels...

My wife and I like to try to visit Grindelwald every 2-3 years, and when we do, we always stay at the Hotel Caprice. The reason for this is that it is very charming, and the owners are very hospitable. Also, the hotel is centrally located, so you can park your car, get a pass for the trains and busses,...

My husband and I stayed at Caprice for 7 nights in late May and early June. I cannot sing their praises highly enough. The hotel is right smack in front of the north face of the Eiger. We had a room with a balcony that looked right on the mountain. It was just breathtaking. What was most essential about our...

One of the prettiest and coziest hotels I have stayed in. Very romantic and fantastic view of the Eiger and the Grindelwald village. Since we were there in the off peak season so there was no else in the hotel apart from us. We reached the hotel late in the night and the next morning the owner was himself waiting...

We've stayed in wonderful Grindelwald twice before and this time decided on Caprice for its chalet feel and the previous tripadvisor reports. On top of all the past positive feedback it is worth mentioning that every one of our 10 days came with a pleasant surprise and exceeded expectations. From good food, real attention to detail, it's cleanliness and variety...

Thanks to Alex and Regula for a great stay in Grindelwald. Best location in town, close to the train station and the shops, all is in walking distance. Nice rooms, great view and an amazing farmer breakfast buffet, which you won't expect. It's a small cozy place, family run and well looked after. Tips: You need to go for half-board,...
