Just spent a Saturday night in a single room. It was quite spacious for a single, with a double bed. The room had a small table at built-in bench seating with cushions and an additional chair. The room had a rustic wood charm, but in a clean varnished feel.

The rooms seem recently updated as the electrical seems to be in good shape and LED type lights. The bathroom is reasonable classic European style with shower column (wand and adjustable holder). As soap/shampoo go, they opt to do a dispenser with shower gel. Similarly for the sink. They do provide separate lotion, a small vanity kit and in the basket in the closet I found playing cards, ear plugs, shoe horn and a cloth laundry bag. (There was something else wrapped I didn't bother to inspect). They also smartly provide a boot tray to hold any melted water.

The elevator for the hotel is *tiny*. Two adults with some bags and gear is a tight fit. The stairs became the more regularly used way to go up and down.

They forgo a mini-bar for an "honesty bar" down in the lobby where there are sheets to mark what you took, but otherwise it's individually wrapped snacks and bottles to self-pour liquors as night caps.

The sleep was good overall. The bed was very comfortable and the temperature of the room was perfect. The one subtraction I'll give is due to situation where a loud drunk(?) was shouting around 4 or 5 in the morning. Given the rooms are on the front side of a small cozy walking street, it couldn't be avoided.

The breakfast was a classic and simple European style buffet with cold cuts, cheese, breads, yogurt and cereals. They did also have hard boiled eggs. While simple, it was done well and didn't leave a sense of institutional style food at all.

The staff was friendly and helpful and extremely pleasant to interact with. I wish to have tried their dinner at their restaurant, but they were booked solid so I missed out on the opportunity. I suggest reserving a spot there too if you intend to stay here.

Room Tip: I'd guess rooms higher in the hotel will have a little more dampening of sound from the street (if any)

Dear Ashlian,

Warm greetings from your Spannort and team and the Swiss Alps!

We are so happy to have received your review and your kind words. Thank you so much for taking your time.

We are very sorry to hear that you experienced some noice in the night from the street. We constantly try to work with the local community to see how we can have guards patrolling the street during the weekends to keep down the noice. We are very sorry about that.

Thank you about your review for our Honesty Bar. It is newly open and we really appreciate your feedback! Thank you!

We are also sorry to hear that we were not able to get you a table at the restaurant. If you choose to come back to Spannort in the future, we would be more than happy to assist you with a table reservation well in advance to guarantee you a table. :)

Thank you so much for your review once again and we are looking forward welcoming you back to Spannort and Engelberg soon again!

Warm regards from your whole Spannort Team

Stefan

Stayed here with my girlfriend and a couple of friends, 4 nights in February 2014. Arrived late from Zurich, but all information and keys were ready when we arrived. Smooth check-in.

We stayed in a Junior Suite, which is a good size for a couple with some skiing equipment. The standard room is fairly small, but of the same type of standard. The room has a separate area for clothes and storing of equipment. Also a table with benches around, nice to sit and enjoy some drinks in the evening.

The place is run by very friendly Swedes, they did all they could for us to have a pleasant stay. The breakfast includes fruit, different juices, Bircher muesli, bread, spreads, croissants and a lot else. Very good breakfast.

Sauna room at second floor, and of course ski room in the basement. No proper fitness room though. Also very cosy area around the reception, including an Honesty Bar.

A great place to stay. A few improvement areas is also worth mentioning. The beds are not up to standard. Twin beds with fairly thin madrasses. The bathroom is quite small, not place for much more than one person. The rooms are a bit warm, so you might have to sleep with windows open. And if you then have rooms facing the street, there is quite a bit of noise coming in. This includes rooms with odd numbers it seems.

I stayed at the Spannort for a weekend in Dec, with my wife and 3 yr old daughter. A warm and stylish hotel without being over the top, the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Excellent cosy restaurant, some of the best food I've had in Switzerland. The waitress gave my daughter a soft toy mouse to play with which she loved. Somehow, whilst leaving our room in a hurry, we left our electric tooth brushes in the bathroom and the hotel staff posted them to us the next day... with a little surprise ...the toy mouse my daughter had been playing with!!

This place is absolutely fantastic. I went for lunch with my partner and got the 3 course meal of the day. Everything that came out was brilliant. First was a salmon salad, second was this beautiful mushroom with cream soup (it doesn't sound like much but it blew me away). Lastly was a thai chicken stir fry. Again this meal was cooked to perfection. Super tasty.

If you go there i strongly recommend the local Engelberg beer called Klosterbraü.

A must try if you are staying in Engelberg. The reviews do not lie!

We came across this restaurant wondering if it was open (we came to Engelberg on a Wednesday and most things aren't open until Thursdays) and when we walked in we were treated by a very friendly waiter who seated us. We looked at the menu and had the waiter help us find out what the dishes were in English and ordered 3 courses for 33CHF which we found to be a decent price. My partner ordered the salad, soup and main, I ordered the salad, main and desert. All meals were A+ and extremely delicious, we cannot fault any of the dishes. They were very well presented. We also tried the Engelberger Klosterbrau which was an excellent beer (on recommendation from the waiter) all in all
