Hotel Derby has also some beautiful apartments in typical wooden Swiss chalets.
We stayed for a week in a lovely apartment named "First" by the name of a local mountain.
The apartment was clean and comfortable. We had a beautiful view from the window of our bedroom on the three famous Grindelwald mountains (the Moench, the Eiger and the Jungfrau) and we could also see several little waterfalls getting down. The chalet has a nice little garden full of flowers and a typical wooden fountain. A free parking is available. The chalet is only five minutes' steps from the centre of Grindelwald. Besides apartment "First", there are three more apartments in the same chalet: "Eiger", "Moench" and "Jungfrau", each one with own entrance (see their website http://www.derby-grindelwald.ch/ in German and English and click on "Chalets"). They all can be rented for a minimum of 7 days' stay. You can decide to rent only the apartment or to have half-board (in this second case, you have to walk to the hotel - only 5 minutes - to have breakfast and lunch or dinner). Price is very good, if you consider the high Swiss standard of prices.
The staff is very polite and can speak several languages; on our arrival they gave us some good typical Swiss food (local cheese and more) and the same thing happened when we paid before going away.
