This is a very charming hotel just on the outskirts of this very small village. We were able to walk from the train station to the hotel with our luggage in about 15 minutes. If I had it to do over again, we would've called ahead and requested a pick up. They did give us a ride back to the train station when we departed.
The furnishings were very dated but clean and comfortable. Like all of the hotels in Switzerland, it was expensive. I have to say, though, that my very favorite thing about this hotel was the view from our balcony. We had a balcony off our room which was shared (although the hotel was essentially empty for the off season) from which we could sit and gaze at the mountains and glaciers.
Breakfast is nothing special and does not change from day to day. There is a laundry room available for a small fee, you can wash your clothes. Also, they have a computer in the tv room which you can use to access the internet for a fee. They also have a game room that had there been more people in the hotel, may have had some good use. All in all, it was a good experience.
