I want to be brief so... this was my third June in a row to Grindelwald. I have stayed in 3 other hotels (over 2 years) - mostly the big ski resorts. Wanted to stay a week and saw reviews of this place. Stayed in the Pilatus studio apt Perfect for 1-2 people. View of the mountains was fantastic. Monica picked us up at the train station the first day. Room was a nice size with kitchen. The walk up into town is not far but for some people, I can see it being a slight problem. But, keep this in mind - my wife was 5 months pregnant at the time and could make the walk a few times per day so it is a non issue in my book and will stay there again. Monica was very nice to drive us back to the train station on our last day in town though she did not have to do so. We plan on returning in a few years when our baby is a little older. Probably rent a bigger unit upstairs and bring some grand parents. Grindelwald and this entire area is just a great place to stay a week - hike, bike, do gondola lifts, etc. Good food in town as well.

Stayed at the Eiger Studio for 3 nights from 2 to 5 Sep. We were really impressed by how spacious n comfy the apartment was, and how well equipped the kitchen was for cooking.
We cooked practically the whole time we were there n saved quite a bit of money as eating out in Switzerland is really v expensive (ESP Grindelwald)!
There was a Coop supermart located nearby so we were able to buy groceries daily for making our meals.
Monica, the person in charge, was extremely sincere, warm, helpful n yet non-intrusive. Excellent service provided! She even offered to lend us some pepper for our meals. All the utensils n equipment u can think of were provided for. My apt had salt too, but not pepper. The owners definitely pay attention to feedback cos I remember reading earlier reviews abt the lack of salt provided n yet in my apartment there was salt. Kudos! Way to go for listening to yr customers' feedback. Am impressed!
This apt was really value for money, what with the size, the views (partially blocked though u have a huge terrace to hang out at), and the great service. They provide free DVD rentals too. Quite a large selection!
Just one thing to note though- the apt is located on a slope n is abt a 3min walk uphill to the main "street". It's quite a tough walk uphill as it is quite steep but we enjoyed the daily exercise. : )
Grindelwald is a great base for exploring the breathtaking scenery in the region. We hike from First to Bachalpsee to Waldspitz then Bort. The view was out of this world. The next day we hiked from Mannlichen to Kleine Scheidegg n then to Alpsligen. V beautiful too. The Grindelwald valley is just a perfect base for all the amazing hikes n scenery in the region. We almost wanted to stay in Lauterbrunnen. Am so glad we didn't cos Grindelwald is so much more scenic n convenient, though some may deem it v touristy.
If I were to return to Grindelwald, I would definitely stay here again!

We booked at the last minute, and couldn't have been happier with the apartment (Shrekhorn). The views of the Eiger were constantly amazing, the apartment clean, well furnished and well equipped, with plenty of storage space in the kitchen, bedrooms and for suitcases etc. Monica and her husband could not have been more hospitable or more helpful, without ever seeming to intrude. I can't think of a single critical comment.

We definitely intend to go back.

This is an ideal place to stay: the views are beautiful, it is a lovely apartment and the situation is great. Grindelwald is great for walking, swimming, trottibiking and a lot more. The attractions are very easy to get to but not suitable for children under 5 and the elderly.
The owners are super friendly and welcoming and even drove us places!
100% recommended!

We stayed at the Chalet Bielholz for a week, and had a grand time. The Chalet is elegant, well-appointed and spacious, with a glorious master-bedroom and bath en suite. The kitchen is huge and has just about everything you'd need to cook for an army (though I don't believe it had a microwave). The terrace is massive - perfect for coffee in the morning, drinks at sunset or a two-a-side soccer match, if you're so inclined. In the living-room, a flat-screen Pioneer television worked perfectly, delivering lots of channels, including CNN and German cartoon shows for the kids.

The Chalet is at the opposite end of Grindelwald from the Jasmine Apartments, with which it is affiliated. (The inestimable Monica manages both facilities.) In general, the Chalet is in the area above and behind the Belvedere Hotel, whereas the Jasmine Apartments are downhill from the bus station in the center of town. If you stay at the Chalet, you'll want a car - there are two parking spaces for the apartment - or, failing that, you'll need to get a handle on the buses. (Walking up to the Chalet with a heavy bag of groceries would be a hike - but not the kind of hike I came to Grindelwald for.)

Besides the main bedroom, there are two others - quite nice, but inasmuch as they're at the back of the apartment, they don't get the natural light or view that the master bedroom does. Still, as I said: quite nice - as is the second bathroom.

The only drawback - which costs the Bielholz a star in my reckoning - is the lack of an Internet or Wifi connection. Monica let me use the one they have at the Jasmine Apartments, but schlepping back and forth to check one's email is not a lot of fun. That said, everything else worked a treat and, yes, my breakage deposit (462 Euros!) was promptly refunded at the end of my visit.

Stayed one week in the Eiger Apartment .

Positive:
- the host are really friendly people and go out of their way to help you
- the WiFi works well and is convenient in the room . If you need to buy adapters for a standard European / Swiss plug for your phone /chargers - please note that COOP sells those
- location - easy uphill walk close to the village centre. Please note that the apartments are about 150m away from the Hallenbad - where you can swim with a view of the mountains after your long hike to relax legs and feet - don't forget your swimming trunks. The dorffest on Wednesday Evening in summer also has very good vibes.
- Eiger is spacious for a couple - with a seperate reading area after the hiking

Recommendations:
- only one pair of towels for the whole week (towel change costs 50CHF for a couple) is not enough when you are active all the time - so bring an extra pair
- the owners are not German Swiss - the beds unfortunately have typical smaller UK sizes than Continental / Swiss- which may not be to everybodies liking
- bring a large cafetiere if you go by car - because the one in Eiger only made one coffee cup at the time

In general, all travel guides recommend tom's Hutte - the pizza place - which indeed is very nice - but quite small - so we tried 5 times to get in but ended up on a long waiting list for a Pizza which is not worth it . The 6th time we went at 9:15 to get in .
The Rosti at the Memory restaurant are good value and you deserve them after your 6 hour walk !

Like everyone else reviewing these apartments we were very impressed by their quality, location, the great view of the Eiger from our deck, and of course Monica and Jose's wonderful hospitality, helpfulness and friendliness. Monica gave us, and our heavy suitcases, a lift to the station at the end of our stay. We very much appreciated being able to book a self catering apartment for 4 nights, rather than the usual week that is required for such accommodation.
