“Cemetery - is the best thing!!!”
Reviewed January 13, 2010

Rooms are standard. Cleaned once a day. Only breakfast is available (bread, sliced cheese and ham, tea / coffee, juices, jams, muesli). Hot breakfast is not seen. The restaurant is usually only works as a bar. View from the window at the mountains. One big disadvantage: CEMETERY is located 20 meters away from the hotel !!! It wasn’t mentioned in reviews at all ...

Grindelwald is an excellent choice in in the Bernese Oberland and this hotel is nicely located away from the noise of the main street and traffic. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable without being luxurious. We only ate in once, but it was the best meal we had in town. We had a south facing room with a glorious view of the Wetterhorn mountain and glacier. The service was excellent too. We were collected and delivered back to the train station for example. The one thing we did find was that the owner was really not that friendly. Maybe he was just too busy or had more pressing things to do than spend time talking to clients.

This is a really warm and friendly, family-run hotel. We had a huge suite to ourselves--it was summer and some rooms in the hotel are geared for large ski-parties so we were lucky to get one of them, though how the six or so people the suite can accommodate would manage with one bathroom was a mystery to me--with fantastic views of the mountains from three sides! This hotel has some of the best hotel beds I have slept in. They have an absolutely fabulous restaurant--don't bother to step out the hotel for dinner. The soup they made for our son, who was suffering from hay fever was absolutely wonderful and had him feel a whole lot better the next morning. You also get complimentary access to a heated pool and sauna at a nearby hotel. The deal usually includes a free pick up and drop off from the station, but it is also only a 10 mt walk which is a breeze if you are acclimatized to the altitude. All in all a great place!

An ideal place and best value for money. Travelling through Switzerland, we decided to stop in Grindelwald and what a fantastic place. The hotel is nicely located and we were more than satisfied with the accommodation and services. The owner and staff are friendly and the local food served is outstanding! We can highly recommend the hotel.

Super Hotel we stayed on a half board basis booked as part of a package,we had a north facing room which was very clean and of ample size and well equiped.The food is a dream,4 course evening meals and all you can eat breakfast.The staff are very friendly and helpfull.

The location of the Hotel is at the opposite end of the village to the railway station which means a 5 minute bus ride instead of a 15 minute walk in ski boots,because this is Switzerland everything runs like clockwork so this is not a problem.

Friendly staff always willing to help and advise us on the nest days weather! The evening meals were very different, mostly things that we would have never ordered ourselves but almost without exception were very tasty! Got to try some proper swiss food that we would have missed out on otherwise. Nice rooms, with a top notch daily cleaning service.

The hotel is a typical mountain building with balconies rich of flowers. It is located 10 mins walking from city center, but it has a large free parking in front of the entrance.
My girlfriend and I booked a double superior room, which only difference from standard room is the presence of a balcony that looks toward eiger....what a great view!
The room is really clean, adequately spacious -related to a mountain room- with a really confortable bed and shutters to get almost completely darkness if you like it.
Breakfast is satisfying, but it is moreover a continental one, with no cooked food.
The receptionist was really kind with us, especially for the first breakfast,which we cannot have, because it is served from 7,00 am. That day we planned an excursion and the cheapest start was at 6,55 am, so she prepared us a delicious packed lunch, with sandwiches, choccolate and fruit, and she left it on a table in the lobby with our name on!! Great.
The only problem with this accomodation is the price which is a bit high for a three star hotel, but i think is aligned with otheer Grindelwald accomodation.
