“Lovely place in a lovely city”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

We stayed her in June and spent three nights here. Emma, the guest manager went out of her way to make us feel welcome and even helped us plan our day complete with hiking maps and plan B in case of rain. The breakfast there was outstanding, since many times breakfast in Europe is just the bare minimum. They had a large selection of meats and cheeses, fresh breads, fruit, yogurt, nutella, hard boiled eggs, granola, orange juice, tea and coffee. My husband and I looked forward to it every morning. We got a special deal because we mentioned the Rick Steve's special. It was a great deal at a nice place. We did have to share a bathroom and shower with the floor, but we never had to wait. Plus, there was a sink in our room. We ate dinner here a couple times, it is pricey, but good. I had the hot spicy pasta. I guess if you think about it, they have to get the food way up there in the mountain, so it's not going to be cheap. We would definitely stay here again. Loved Murren!!

Room Tip: We got the top floor, facing the street at a cheaper price because of the Rick Steve's deal.

My daughter and I stayed at the Eiger Guesthouse in August and found it to be a very special part of our trip to Europe. Our room was delightful, comfortable and very clean. But, the best experience of all was meeting the staff. I can't imagine a better place to stay and have both the personal attention from everyone and the true ambiance of the Swiss Alps all in one. Our special thanks to Ema Baptisa who runs the Guesthouse. Ema is warm and friendly. Be sure to ask her about the hiking trails. She takes the time to hike them regularly so that she can keep her guests abreast of all changes and highlights on the paths. The staff Paul, Robert, Natalie and Caroline are wonderful. The restaurant has excellent food and service in a cozy environment. Make time to have meals at the Guesthouse and to sit in the bar for desert and drinks while visiting with the locals. My daughter and I would come back again and bring the rest of our family with us. The Eiger Guesthouse is the 'perfect place' to stay, eat and visit while in the Murren area. From this destination you can have it all, especially the joy of meeting Ema. Thank you for making our time there so memorable. Vicky & Rachel

I think the town of Murren is the perfect place to stay in this region because it is quiet and you get amazing views of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau.

The Eiger GuestHouse as its name suggests has amazing views of the Eiger. The Quad room they gave (family of 4) us was kinda small, but was very modern and efficiently laid out. The bathroom was clean and updated. Ema and all the folks up front were very pleasant and helpful.

This establishment met all our expectations. We will definately stay here the next time we visit Murren.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms that directly face the Eiger.

Our group (2 couples) stayed here for 2 nights in very early September. We found the rooms to be very clean, updated and comfortable. We especially appreciated the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff: they stored our luggage when we arrived early for our stay, stored our bikes overnight in the ski room, helped us plan our hikes, and kindly prepared a generous sack lunch to take with us the last morning when we were leaving early and couldn't take advantage of the breakfast offering. Having the convenience of a small, cozy restaurant and bar in the building was also appreciated. I recommend the dining room for dinner- good variety and quality. We would happily return to Eiger Guesthouse.

My wife and I spent part of last week at the Eiger Guesthouse in Murren, Switzerland. We could not recommend it more highly. The guest rooms were great (room #1 has a terrific view of the Alps), the restraurant and bar were wonderful and, more than anything else, the staff was warm, welcoming and very helpful. We high recommend the Eiger Guesthouse.

Staying at Eiger Guesthouse was easily the highlight of our 3-week trip in Europe. The views are stunning and the hotel is right across the BLM station. We had signed up for the half board option and they happily accommodated our request for Vegetarian food. Probably the best food we had in our trip as well. The kids thoroughly enjoyed their stay in bunk beds in the adjacent room with a connecting door to our room. All said and done, what makes this Hotel tick is Ema Baptisa. She is an amazing host. Thank you Ema

This is my first review/post and I am glad that it is for this place.

I and my wife stayed in Murren and Eiger Guesthouse from Aug 27 to Aug 30. It is very conviniently located right next to the train stop. Excellent rooms (ours was a superior bedroom) with fantastic views. Well stocked bar, nice collection of books and a great game room, all which we made use of. The restaurant served great food (with additional Pizza's for the weekend).

The staff was great, smiling, welcoming and accomodating. I want to especially mention Robert, with whom we interacted the most, and for us was the face of the Guesthouse. Thanks for your company and for all the advise about weather and places to visit.

We also get complimentary use of the pool in the sports center, which we didnt use. And we had free high speed WiFi.

Now for somethings that I didnt like, but then as I realised during my stay in other hotels, these are fairly common and not unique to Eiger Guesthouse.

The Double Beds are not really double beds, but two single beds pushed together. We are at that stage of marriage that we still hug and sleep :-), and it was painful for the first night, because of the small gap. So be prepared to sleep separately.

The breakfast did not have anything hot (apart from tea/coffee/hot choc) or eggs. Again, this is the same in almost all Swiss Hotels. Maybe, Eiger Guesthouse wants to stand apart for future?? :-)

Overall, great place, will love to be back

Room Tip: There is no lift, so luggage will have to be lifted up the stairs; go for Superior Bedrooms
