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.
