Hotel Eiger Grindelwald
Ranked #3 of 41 Hotels in Grindelwald
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 19, 2012

The Hotel Eiger in Grindewald offers you a variety of wellness activities, perhaps that's the reason why it is a four stars hotel. MrPayne did find the view from the balcony of the lifestyle-room very nice, but found also something negative from this in Trip-advisor highly raised hotel.

The Room: Problem in the room was that the bathroom had somekind of wannabee-door. That means you have no privacy while you are sitting on a toilet. Other problem was that there is no kind of air-conditioning or ventilation in the room. So you should sleep the balcony door open to get some air, but can't do that because of the noise coming from the street below.

Service: Mr Payne was waken up at 8:17 am by a hotel worker who accidently entered Mr Payne's room without waiting an answer after knocking at the door. Later he excused himself and told that he had marked the rooms wrong in his books...

Breakfast: No hard boiled eggs, tea-bags were too tiny and gave no taste, and there was and a poor variety of cheeses (in switzerland Mr. Payne expects a little more when it comes the cheeses).

Mr Payne's matress-check: Matresses are old and they have lost their form a long ago. Typical box-spring solution, but without a matress-pad, and even without a deacent matress cover.

Room Tip: Choose one from the southside of building 1. The view is spectacular.

Stayed at Eiger for one week from 7th Jan. Very spacious, clean well-appointed room. From the moment of arrival it was clear that all the staff put the customer's needs first. The hotel owners were very visible during our stay and regularly checked to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. The hotel was relatively quiet meaning we ate in Barry's restaurant off the a la carte menu which was excellent. One night we chose to eat more informally in the memory bar and this was accommodated by giving us a substantial contribution per person towards the meal. Great location. Excellent staff. Would definitely recommend and return.

This hotel is very well located in the centre of Grindelwald, with a direct view on the mythical Eiger peak. We have spent a fantastic stay for the new year 2012 and the staff was definteley friendly and attentive.

The SPA zone and fitness are not just "features" for the hotel brochure, but indeed of great value: modern/design furnitures, unlimited towels at disposal, fresh juices, aromatic herbs in one of the two sauna, relaxation room with a nice atmosphere and candles, lot of modern equipment at the gym, etc..

The breakfast is awesome: a buffet with delicious local cheeses and lmost everything looked home made: marmelades, breads, müseli...

Hotel Eiger is definitely a must in Grindelwald, and in the swiss alps. It is not so common to have this quality of service / value for money in Switzerland. I would even say that they are a model to follow for the renewal of the swiss hostellery, so often disappointing.

eiger hotel is very easy to find, right in the center of the town. the room is very spacious, given a upgrade with a balcony. we were lucky to get a good rate as we check in a bit late. the breakfast is quite good. the only thing is that to get to your room you have to pass through restaurant or the bar or the fitness place. i got lost sometimes. it has parking space behind the hotel as well. overall is good and i would come back again.

The location is just perfect, even though I guess you get a great views form anywhere in this village. Friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, nice facilities and good location. Food was great at the two restaurants of the hotel, they even had a Thai night and the food was really amazing! Cake & tea time in the afternoon and good breakfast buffet with local products. Great spa area. On the other hand, the hotel organization is a bit messy, you even need a map to get to your room at first. It is formed by a few buildings got together and then you take one lift, climb stairs for half a floor, go across the gym and the bar, and reach another building, there you got another lift, so it's a bit complicated to know where you are sometimes. The room is extremely simple, carpet floors and comfortable beds. A bit pricey, but average Switzerland.

We have stayed in this hotel many times and keep going back as it really is excellent. Good food with lots of choice, lovely rooms always clean and changed regularly, great facilities and location. What makes it special though is the staff, always welcoming and willing to help.

I went hiking to the Jungfraujoch and stayed for one night (19-20 Nov 2011) in this Hotel.
Staff: very friendly and very helpful with tips and suggestions!
Food: good breakfast with local products. Had a good "Rösti" at Barry's restaurant!
Facilities: gym, sauna, very relaxed atmosphere!
Location: Great!! The best!
Room: I booked a room for one person and I was a bit disappointed. You've got the basics but judging from the rest of the hotel I expected a bit more. It was cold (in every sense), located in the back building, bathroom floor not heated....... for CHF 120,-/ night at this time of the year I expected a bit more!

I guess with a different room the experience would have been much better!!
