“Feeling ''coming home'' on the Axalp”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

The hosts are simply fantastic and do all to make your stay comfortable. Nice Alpine Hotel with clean and airy rooms. The host changes into the chef uniform around 5pm and then prepares a wonderful dinner served in the adjacent Swiss style house - lots of wood, nice lighting. For years we passed thru Brienz not knowing that Axalp is hiding just a short drive up the mountain. Ideal for walking in summer. There is a hike where every few hundred yards a tree stump is carved - interesting and very professionally done. All in all a very relaxing stay. We used Chemihuttli as base to visit Ballenberg outdoor museum, go up to Rothhorn with the steam locomotive. A very comfortable, well run hotel. Free internet in the hotel, works best in lobby though. We shall return.

This place is our winter holiday destination and has been since we found it in 2004.

It's a small hotel run by the owners who are the most wonderful hosts we have ever encountered. The place is very convenient too and guests can ski their way down to the closest lift. You can also ski down from the piste area and into the hotel. The restaurant is great and is run by the same family serving Swiss and international food.

I've never seen more than 5 or 6 families staying at any one time and the atmosphere in both the restaurant and hotel is very friendly.

If you prefer a quieter, family-oriented location for your holidays as an alternative to the large and busy resorts, this is your next destination. The snow has been great every time we've been there.

This was a wonderful find. Located high above the lake it had amazing views. The staff were so friendly that we we made immediately at home. The room was clean and spacious with free wifi. Next door is cabin with the hotel bar and another chalet is the restaurant. Excellant! Would love to go back soon.

Room Tip: Room at the front had a balcony with amazing view.

We (7 people) stayed in three rooms for three days in this beutiful hotel. Owner and wife are wonderful persons. Very kind people. They arranged BBQ facilities. We have to leave early (5 AM) to Luzern to catch the train. They provided breakfast. They did everything for us. We thought the hotel is expensive but their service is more than that. It was nice place (8 km from Brienze) We will recommend this hotel and location to anyone. No dissapointment.

chemihuettli hotel is situated in the small village of Axalp on top
of a mountain in the Swiss Alps about 40 minutes from Interlaken on the highway.
On our arrivel we were greeted by the owner Rudi and his wife Heidi .
Rudi is the hotel owner and Chef a kind warm person that offered us superb hospitality and made us feel welcome during our stay .
The hotel rooms are nice , well aired , clean and include all amenities , all the rooms include a balcony with a great view of the Alps.
Rudi is an accomplished Chef and did his best to setisfy our culinary demands in other words food was great , well cooked and in abundance.
We greatly enjoyed our stay and would be happy to stay with Rudi and Heidi at the Chemihuettli hotel.
