“Spacious Room with Amazing View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the new building and the room felt like brand new. It had hard wood floor, floor to ceiling window and amazing view of the alps. Since the building was on the cliff side, the balcony looked straight down to the bottom of the valley. Night view was spectacular especially when we turned off all the lights in the room. The external of the building was ordinary (unlike most Swiss traditional architecture) but once we stepped inside the hospitably, atmosphere and food were everything expected in the Swiss alps. Location was very convenient, few minutes from the train station and right in the main street of the village. The hiking in Murren had more local feel to it as compared to the neighbor village Wengen.

Room Tip: Rooms in the new building are spacious with floor to ceiling window, wood floor, and sofa bed.

My wife and two small children(2 1/2 and 6 weeks) spent the weekend in Murren at Hotel Edelweiss. We had a fantastic time. The hotel was perfect and we WILL return. The room was super clean and comfortable and the view was amazing. We stayed in a standard double. The owners were very accomodating and spoke good English. I thought breakfast was good. We ate a lunch and dinner at the restaurant there and both meals were very good. The owners live there and have three children. There were toys for my daughter to play with outside and they also had a trampoline which was a huge hit. We went on multiple hikes/walks each day. There are a couple stroller friendly walks and then many paths/trails of varying difficulty that the four of us did with a hiking backpack for the toddler and a baby bjorn for the little guy. The town is car free so very quiet and peaceful. It is a touristy town but didnt feel too touristy. Murren will be a weekend getaway for us while we are living in Zurich.

Room Tip: The Standard and Superior rooms have amazing views of Alps. The budget, not as much.

We spent a few days in September 2011 in this wonderful hotel. The view is spectacular, you can see the famous Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau mountains on a clear day and watch the paragliders fly by down to the valley deep below (Stechelberg). Very clean, super friendly service and good food. We will go back there anytime we get a chance. Tip: If you travel with lots of luggage, make sure it has wheels as it is a walk of about 10 minutes from the cable car to the hotel. But the walk itself is fabulous - you pass beautiful Swiss chalets, while enjoying a spectacular view of the Bernese Alps.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room facing the Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau. Some rooms also have a balcony - I r...

We stayed at the Hotel Edelweiss in Sept for three nights. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. Nothing really flashy about the room or hotel but very comfortable/clean. The bathroom seemed to be remodeled maybe in the last year or two, and was clean, good size and modern. The breakfast was pretty much standard European breakfast, which I enjoyed. The main reason we selected the hotel was for it's view and it did not disappoint. Your looking right down on the valley with no building to impead the view. The location was good, 3 minute walk to the train and about 7-8 minutes to the lift, 3-4 minutes to the co-op. Also the owners spoke English and we appreciated that.

We had an eleven day holiday in the mountain resort of Murren in the Bernese Oberland. We stayed at the Edelwiess Hotel. The first thing to say is we had a fabulous holiday and the hotel is in a superb location giving uniterrupted views across to the Eiger, Monch and Silberhorn on the other side of the Lauterbrunnen valley. On the face of it it is not the most attractive builing in the village, being flat roofed rather than chalet style, inside though it is modern, light and airy and the service very friendly. We had booked with Inghams and had expected a 'village view' room as we were on a limited budget. Imagine our suprise when we found that we had been given a very nice mountain view room. A definite plus on the part of the management. Our room came with a very good shower, some had a bath. We had booked half-board with Inghams and included in the deal a free packed lunch. Although this arrangement meant that the choice was limited at the evening meal, the food was very good and never repeated itself over the period we were there. It would have been nice if the packed lunches were a little more varied, but that is a quibble. It made the holiday affordable, as make no mistake about it, Switzerland is VERY expensive at present. Another good feature of the hotel is the excellent terrace on which we often had our (free) afternoon tea and cake, also overlooking the mountains. It's position in the town is very convenient being as it is very close to the station and sports centre, to which we had free access to the 25m pool and sauna. It is a wonderfully peacefull village, almost completely vehicle free, accessed by cable car from Lauterbrunnen and then a short train ride from Grutschalp. The surrounding scenery and walks is the stuff of dreams. I would strongly recommend that anyone visiting Murren take advantage of the 'Fly bags' facility offered by Swiss Airlines, that takes your bags from airport check in direct to the hotel, for a very modest charge. It makes the 3hr transfer, a delightful excursion in itself, much more pleasant. The route via Luzerne is well worth taking in one direction at least as it is more picteresque though one hour longer than the route through Berne.

This was my third visit to Murren. Each time we stayed in Hotel Edelweiss with our room overlooking Lauterbrunnen valley. We'll be back ! Murren is a small village about 2000 feet above the valley floor. The view across the valley, and from the hotel rooms, is toward Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau, three of the most beautiful snow covered peaks in Europe. Great hiking around Murren and ready travel via public transportation throughout the region. The hotel is family owned with Daniel and Sandra the host and hostest. Both are gracious and helpful. Simply stated, we find the hotel excellent in every way for a vacation stay. I recommend Murren and Hotel Edelweiss to anyone visiting the Jungfrau region.
