We loved Murren and Chalet Fontana. The location is close (10 minute walk) to train station and funicular or cable car to neighboring towns. Views from rooms are breath taking and Denise (owner) is very pleasant. Pictures do not give a true representation .of the interior of chalet. Common room is a combination of comfortable sitting area and dining room that overlooks the main street and views of the alps. You may have trouble going to sleep at night because of the stars and moon reflecting off the mountains. Every night we slept with our curtain and window open just to soak up the view. We visited in October and the town closed up by 9 pm so you need to eat dinner early which gives you plenty of time to rest up for the next day adventures. We would stay here again..
