“The most beautiful place in the world.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2011

My husband and I ventured up to Murren after a two night stay in Interlaken on our trip through Switzerland. Our only regret is even stopping in Interlaken - we should have come to Murren right away! I can't say enough about this little mountain town or the Eiger Guesthouse. Although we had to share a shower and bathroom, the shower was immaculate and so clean I couldn't even tell it had ever been used before. The room was clean with SPECTACULAR views of the Jungfrau region. The staff was great at assisting us in choosing hikes, which we did daily. (The hiking around Murren is amazing!) The restaurant had good food for dinner and lunch, and then complimentary breakfast was tasty with warm rolls and croissants. The city was small and quiet and the most beautiful place I have ever been. My parents will be making a trip to Switzerland later this year and I've already told them they can't leave the country without spending four nights at the Eiger Guesthouse. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the mountains. There is a porch off all of those rooms!

Just returned from a too-brief stay in Murren. We loved the Eiger Guesthouse, very comfortable and felt like home. HIGHLY recommended!

The Guesthouse was so good that after 5 days we stayed on a further 4. Everything about the place is friendly, comfortable and relaxed. We had half-pension and welcomed the cheerful welcome to dinner after a day's vigorous walking. Ema and her team are just wonderful people - the perfect blend of professionalism and friendliness. The Guesthouse is well placed by the tiny station; the walks around Murren are spectacular, and that view of the mountains from the front bedrooms just cannot be beaten. The Guesthouse is extremely clean with lots of little details like soundproof doors and lovely taps that really make you feel you're staying somewhere more upmarket. Highly recommended and will definitely return. (Room 8 again please!!)

Room Tip: Rooms at the front get those wonderful views but you might be woken by the first little trains comin...

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.
