We stayed at the Eiger Guesthouse in Murren two nights in mid-September. We had one of the “budget rooms”, but it had comfortable beds, a large TV, and best of all it had a million-dollar view of the Alps and a small balcony. We used the shared bath, but with a sink in our room, that posed no problem.
The rooms were extremely clean, and the breakfast was excellent. The staff was helpful and gave good suggestions for sightseeing. This guesthouse is easy to locate as it is right across the street from the train station, but there was absolutely no noise at night, and the views were breathtaking.
Murren is an excellent centrally-located site for seeing the Alps with easy connections to the Shilthorn or the Jungfrau. We hiked to the tiny hamlet of Gimmelwald, (where the Mountain Hostel serves a good pizza, if you’re hungry after your hike from Murren), and we rode the funicular to Allmendhubel. Both activities are easy to accomplish from Murren.
Also, there are many wonderful hikes in the area. We particularly liked the “North Face Hike”. One day while we were hiking, we came around a hillside and saw twelve people practicing their alphorns in the meadow below. What a treat! Several hikers had stopped with us to rest a while and listen to the free alphorn concert. That was Switzerland at its best!
