As other reviewers have rightly mentioned, viewing this hotel from the outside, the Edelweiss is perhaps not the most charming and inviting of edifices, but its interiors are very attractively designed with well appointed rooms, and with the mountain facing rooms offering truly stunning views of the iconic Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau. The superior rooms in the new annex are very smart indeed and beautifully decorated, but beware that some of them have open plan baths and shower cubicles. This may be par for the course for newly married couples or trendy young people, but some older folks may well prefer a bit more privacy—and a bit more decorum for their bathrooms!
The reception was friendly, and the amiable and cheerful host Daniel Kuster-von Allmen was always willing to help with any requests we had. We visited during the tail end of the off season and therefore the hotel’s restaurant was quite deserted in the evenings, and we only ate there on our first night, having a simple meal. The hotel offers fairly traditional Swiss fare, with several Rösti varieties for example, fondues, a number of meat dishes, as well as a range of pizzas. The breakfast buffet was adequate, but the tinned fruit on offer was a bit of a let-down.
Overall we would certainly recommend this hotel to others.
