“Perfect location”
Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Very good location, a short walk to the train station and Grindelwald- First. We had the family room, perfect for us with two teenagers. It's clean and comfortable. Our room was facing the street. The street noise was quite loud however. Their south facing rooms have a stunning views of the Eiger mountain. The owners, Monica and Robert were very nice and very friendly. When we told them that we'll be checking out early in the morning, they open their kitchen early to serve us breakfast. They served generous and hearty breakfast, a good way to start a full day of activities.

We were leaving Interlaken and decided last minute to spend a night in Grindelwald. We were lucky enough to find a room at Tschuggen just the night before arriving and it turned out to be one of our most pleasant hotel experiences the whole trip. We stopped by the hotel (which was a very short walk from the train station) early hoping to drop off our bags and instead were told we could just check in since the room was ready. We got great advice on where to hike and what to do while in town. The room was cozy and clean. And breakfast was wonderful with our own pot of coffee and steamed milk and just the right kinds of things to set us up for a fabulous hiking day. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a comfortable night, a warm experience, and not interested in paying for super luxury (such as a huge bathroom).

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Tsuggen for three nights at the very end of August 2013, and we honestly could not have asked for a better place, friendlier hosts or anything else that makes this hotel so amazing! The hotel is absolutely spotless, the size of the room was perfect even with the extra luggage (climbing gear, etc.) that we had with us, and the breakfast was yummy--even when we didn't eat in the breakfast room! :)

Robert and Monika are the most amazing hosts, so friendly, and approachable and overall... NICE. They're really great to talk to about many things, and know a lot about Grindelwald and surrounding areas, made great suggestions for where to have the best Fondue and the best Rösti in town, gave us valuable advice regarding what we had planned to do around Grindelwald, and were overall... well, awesome--there really is no other word for it. :) When they heard that we are planning to leave for our hikes and climbs before breakfast was served, they instantly offered to make sandwiches for us to take along. But it wasn't only sandwiches.. they put eggs in there, juice, yogurt and so much other stuff that we even had food for lunch! The one morning when we did have breakfast in the room, the selection was great and so was the coffee. (I mention the coffee because it was absolute garbage at most other hotels where we stayed in Switzerland, except at Hotel Alex in Zermatt.)

The free access to the pool at the recreation centre was a great and unexpected perk--and such a welcome one too, because, there's really nothing better than having a good soak after a whole day of hiking and climbing.

Stay again?! ABSOLUTELY, no question about it. We simply can't WAIT to return as soon as possbile and stay longer so we can do everything we didn't have time for.

Room Tip: I am sure all the rooms are just as clean and comfortable. We didn't spend all that much time i...

Excellent breakfast, location and room. We used the swimming pass for the sports center, and enjoyed going down the tunnel slide with its optical illusion lighting inside. Be sure to sign up for the dinner at Barry's 24 hours in advance. The food is excellent and it is conveniently across the street.

Room Tip: Facing mountain side with balcony

The hotel managers and staff were quite friendly and accomodating for our family during our stay. They provided a great breakfast and went out of their way to help us find out about scheduled events and other activities during our stay in Grindelwald.

The hotel has limited parking and is in the middle of town. This makes it a fairly loud location, especially if you are in a room facing the South (that faces the main street going through town).

The guest passes to the Athletic facility came in very handy (swimming, ice skating, badmitton and table tennis, etc.)

While the hotel is very clean, with a very nice breakfast and great service, I would probably not stay there unless I was assured of a North facing room during my next stay.

Parking may be helped once the new central parking facility is completed (it is just a few blocks from the hotel).

Room Tip: North facing is much more quiet and faces the valley looking onto the Eiger.

We had a room at the back of the hotel - lovely and peaceful with a beautiful panorama of the pastures and the Eiger - and the hotel garden, with four lovely rabbits! Our room was clean and comfortable. The hosts were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good. The hotel was conveniently situated in the centre of the village.

We stayed as a family of 4 in the side house, House Spinell. It was extremely cozy. Very, very clean. The view of the Eiger is wonderful. And the hotel is situated right in the heart of town, but easily accessible to wilderness. We took the longest gondola up to the top of the mountain, and walked right home to Hotel Tschuggen (of course, it took us 6 hours!!). But the location was just perfect. Shops and restaurants across the street for convenience, and buses that can take you to wonderful hiking spots.
The owners and staff are so kind and helpful. You really felt welcomed there, like you were staying with family! The breakfast was so abundant, it carried us all day until dinner! We couldn't be happier with our stay at Hotel Tschuggen! We will be back!

Room Tip: for a family, ask for House Spinell. It is your own little home away from home!
