My wife and I like to try to visit Grindelwald every 2-3 years, and when we do, we always stay at the Hotel Caprice. The reason for this is that it is very charming, and the owners are very hospitable. Also, the hotel is centrally located, so you can park your car, get a pass for the trains and busses, walk down the hill and you never need your car again...until you leave. The owners can provide you with everything from the passes to tours, to ideas for activities and Alex, is always full of ideas. The hotel seems pricey, at first glance, but it really is a good value. Everything is Switzerland can be expensive, so when you get your room and it includes breakfast and dinner, there is a HUGE savings in the amount of money you actually save... Plus the food is great! Breakfast has plenty of options, from meats to eggs, to juice and cheese, fresh baked bread and pate. Dinners are 5 course meals. The restaurant features Swiss wines, that are delicious. This year we stayed in the Residence part of the hotel, and all I can say is OMG. Hard wood floors, a beautiful spacious bedroom, a large living room, and a fantastic bathroom, that even had a washer and dryer. They offer this room with bed, breakfast and dinner or without, but I recommend getting the whole package as you will save a lot of money and enjoy gourmet dinners every night. My parents stayed in the Chalet part of the Hotel, and their room was fantastic as well. All of the rooms have views of the Alps, and there is nothing better than waking up and going to sleep looking at trains and gondolas going up and down the beautiful mountains... I reviewed this hotel years back, and I am glad to say that they have maintained if not even improved from the last time we stayed here. You will not be disappointed with your stay... No matter if it is summer or winter... The owners, Alex and Regula are there for your every whim, from greeting you at breakfast to help planning your day... and dont forget to get a nightcap or a bottle of wine after dinner in the lobby bar.... Ask for the Pepita Special... you can get your drink and take it into the garden to enjoy the evening and look at the alps.... This is a no brainer... a fantastic hotel... and it will make your trip if you stay at the Hotel Caprice.
