We traveled with my parents to Grindelwald a couple weekends ago to show them Jungfrau, but failed to reserve a hotel in advance. A day before we left, we booked Hotel Hirschen (because it was one of the only remaining places available within our budget). We didn't expect much, but we were very surprised and pleased once we arrived! The owner of the hotel and the staff are so kind and helpful and very enjoyable to talk with. The breakfast is a typical B&B spread in Switzerland and it was a great way to start our mornings! The location is perfect...at first we were disappointed that we weren't in Interlaken, but we quickly realized the benefit to being in Grindelwald. We were never bored! The hotel is located across the street from a tiny miniature golf course and it was so fun to have some wine and play golf in the middle of the Alps as the sun was setting. The train station is just down the road and we were glad to be closer to Jungfrau than if we had stayed in Interlaken...it cut down on the cost of the train ticket and the travel time.
The rooms were comfortable and quite spacious! We had a double room with a balcony in the chalet while my parents had a double room with a balcony in the main building. Both were nice, but theirs was larger and they had a gorgeous view of the mountains, whereas our view was slightly blocked by their building in front of us. The bathrooms were bigger than we expected, although not huge. If you want in-room luxuries like shampoo, nice soaps, fluffy towels, etc, this isn't the place for you... but if you want an enjoyable experience in a Swiss B&B, with easy access to Jungfrau, this place can't be beat! We would absolutely stay here again!
