“Great Overnight Stay, Good Value for Grindelwald”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

We selected this hotel based on filtering for < $300/night and the Trip Advisor rating and booked one day ahead. For the US traveler it is expensive but a good value considering where you are. At first I hesitated by the name because it didn't sound very Swiss. Seemed more fitting of a name for a hotel in Cabo San Lucas:) Don't let this throw you off. The views from your balcony of the Northface of the Eiger and lower meadows are out of a postcard. Unfortunately it was cloudy and raining during our stay but still very beautiful. The hotel is about 400 meters from the train station. We reserved a double room and since the hotel was full they let us stay in an upper apartment which was spacious with traditional European double bed, 1 1/2 bath, separate living room, kitchenette and double balcony. Greeting on arrival was welcoming and efficient. All staff could converse in English and not make you feel bad about it. I can see this would be ideal for ski season since you could eat in and save a lot on restaurants. The range of breakfast offerings was in the standard range for European 3-star. I liked that they labeled items that were Swiss or from the local Grindelwald area (mainly meats and cheeses). These seemed to be of high quality. They did not serve dinner at the hotel. Wifi access was free and one of the faster networks. It worked better from the lobby than our room. They also allowed more than one device at a time which we appreciated. Finally, staff were very helpful to assist guests select activities (hikes etc.) in the local area. Kind of limited when it is bad weather though. Hotel had access to a fitness club but we did not use it.

Room Tip: Some Balconies are on the side of the hotel. The best view would be a balcony on the back side whic...

My wife and I were fortunate enough to have four nights staying at the Hotel Cabana in Grindelwal. The views of the valley and the Eiger from our balcony were breath-taking. The staff made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and continued to do so throughout our stay. The apartment was roomy, well equipped and functional. The hotel was conveniently located being an easy 3 or 4 minute walk from the centre of town and the train station. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Great hotel, friendly, awesome view, good value. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Grindelwald. The management and staff were extremely helpful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. But the view is to die for.

Room Tip: Room with a view of the mountain

We have come back to this gem in Grindelwald and again had a great stay.
The small hotel has great views on the Eiger Northface, nice comfortable rooms, friendly staff and is located close to the center and train station.
Our room was spacious, with comfortable bed, dining table and kitchenette and balcony. The breakfast buffet had a great selection, fresh every morning.

Very good accommodation. Wonderful views from a decent sized room (suite). Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Wifi included. Very hot room, we never discovered how to turn the heating down. Good sized bathroom. Kitchenette was really useful but lacking plugs, to use the microwave we would have had to move it, not a lot of scope for recharging phones etc without turning off lamps and using those sockets. But overall a good stay. And the views are just wonderful.

Room Tip: Pay extra for the rooms with a view

My son and I stayed at Cabana for six days last December. Warm, cosy atmosphere, excellent Swiss breakfast and breathtaking view of the Jaeger and Jungfrau. Reasonably priced, Bettina at the counter anticipates your needs. Thanks Cabana!, Hi Bettina!
