This place was awesome. What can I say about the views but outstanding. The mountain streams churning their way down to Grindewald - the mountain range views - even got to see a rainbow over the valley. The hospitality of the staff was amazing. We got upgraded to a small dorm all to ourselves as we were there in off season. That is always a nice touch when that happens, and shows that the staff are doing some PR work. The half board meals were really great, and we could linger over them and never felt rushed. It was like the staff was catering only to us - but again it helps to be off season. Our dorm view probably had the best view of the whole place. It was a dorm with 2 bunk beds in it, in a corner of the building. The bathroom facilites are shared, but clean and big and lots of hot water - sometimes toooo hot. The cable car ride up from Grindewald was almost never ending - it took over 30 minutes to get up top with a change in the middle. Had the cable car to myself and enjoyed the views as much as I could as it was a bit cloudy and hazy. All in all for the 2 night stay we had there with our meals, it was really really reasonable price wise - and oh , did i mention the views?
The view from the rooftop terrace was outstanding - you felt right there - in harmony with the mountains and nature.
