Reviewed September 25, 2012

This hotel was a highlight to our stay! Clean, convienient, and so very helpful! The staff is beyone comparison.
We always felt welcome and every need taken care of......with a smile.
We had an early train out on our last morning there and Ema packed us a breakfast full of sandwhiches, juice, fruit and candy bars for our trip since we would be gone by breakfast time!
This place is awesome....if your going to the beautiful small town of Murren, you must stay here. You won't be dissapointed.

We just returned from a wonderful 2 night stay at the Eiger Guesthouse. Ema and her staff treat you like you are family! The whole hotel is spotless and so comfortable. Everything you need is right there, bar, food and Ema if you need anything else. She truely cares about her guests and that they have a good time. Our first 2 days were very foggy but we headed down to Lauterbrunner. We walked thru the shops then on to Trummelbach falls, which was mind blowing! The views are just amazing! We ate dinner both nights there which was very good, along with breakfast that was included. It seemed like we were at a family reunion, everyone in there talking about where they have been and where they wanted to go, just a great atmosphere. When we were there most everyone we meet was from the USA, great bunch of friendly people! By now everyone should know that the views from the front rooms are just unbelievable! Rooms are bright and so clean with great water pressure and instant hot water. You can not hear the trains at all, but make sure you come up by train, otherwise you are lugging your suitcases thru town, about a 10-15 minute walk. We were able to get up to Schilihorn the day we were supposed to leave. What a view! So glad we were able to get up there! Mother Nature at her best! No doubt about it, we would stay here again!!! Thank you Ema and your great staff!!

Room Tip: Any room facing the front!

We just got back from a 2 week trip in Switzerland and the Eiger Guesthouse was by far the best placed that we stayed. Ema and her staff are very friendly, helpful, and make you feel at home. The hotel only has 12 rooms which allows a very personal level of service from Ema and team.
From the moment we walked in we felt at home. They can provide great suggestions of things to do, hikes to take, and offer alternatives based on the weather that day.

The bar seems to be a favorite for locals and visitors alike, which makes for a great atmosphere and conversations over drinks at the end of the day. The food in the restaurant is great and priced equal to most other comparable restaurants in town.

The location is great (right across the street from the train station) and the views are simply stunning. We will stay here again!

Room Tip: Room facing the front of the hotel have an epic view.

Murren, Switzerland was the first stop on our first ever trip to Europe. We couldn't have picked a better starting point. Ema and her staff helped make our first stay something we won't forget. We arrived late in the evening in the rain, and with only three days in the area, had hopes of seeing the surrounding area. We awoke the next morning to snow and no views, but Ema was there to help with suggestions to work around the weather. She would meet with each of the guests individually each day to see how things went and to offer sightseeing or hiking suggestions. Our third floor room was clean and comfortable with a great view, worth the premium cost. We ended up taking all our meals in the restaurant, not only convenient but with good service, menu choices, quality and priced average for the area. Oh, the weather broke the next day and with the new snow, the mountains were even more dramatic. On our last morning before leaving, Ema even took the time for an espresso with us. We both loved the area and hope to return; can't imagine where else we'd rather stay.

We stayed several nights at Eiger Guesthouse in late August. The best thing about the hotel is the friendly and welcoming spirit of the owner, Ema. She helped us find the best hiking in the area and gave us many other recommendations for things to see and do. The hotel is clean and simple. Rooms with a view look over the train station across the street (surprisingly not at all noisy and the mountains, and "view rooms" are well worth the slightly higher price. The bar is popular with locals in the late afternoon. We ate at the restaurant for breakfast (included) and a couple of times for dinner. Food is straightforward and no more or less expensive than anywhere else in town. Soups were tasty. Murren itself is a very quiet place and a good base for hiking, assuming you enjoy a real hike (think elevation)! Also be sure to get the village pass which allows free entry to the local sports center including a great swimming pool and whirlpool - feels good after a day of hiking!

Room Tip: Suggest the rooms on the front of the hotel which have a great view of Eiger and other mountains in...

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights at Eiger Guesthouse last month and had a great time. What a beautiful place to spend a few days! We booked a room with a balcony at the front of the hotel, so had a lovely mountain view! The room was very cosy and clean, had a flat screen TV and super powerful shower (always a bonus for me!). The hotel was a chalet style hotel, very clean with a small bar area, dining room and games room with TV and pool table. Breakfast was included and had a varied selection of cereals, cold meats, yogurt, toast, croissants, juice, coffee, tea, etc...a selection that is typically offered in my experience of Swiss hotels/guesthouses. Didn't eat evening meals at the hotel, mainly because we had been out sightseeing all day and had eaten earlier...the food did look nice though from what I saw.
Staff were excellent and Ema, the General Manager, was great...so friendly and welcoming and always available for a chat or to recommend things to do.
The main draw of Murren is the beautiful scenery and walking trails and it's closeness to Schilthorn, as well as easy accessibility to visit the Trummelbach Falls and Lauterbrunnen (to start your trip to the Jungfraujoch), take a trip to Interlaken, etc, etc. The Eiger Guesthouse is opp. the train station which takes you down to the cable car station at Grutschalp and then down to Lauterbrunnen...so no lugging those suitcases very far!
Would heartily recommend Eiger Guesthouse to anyone thinking of taking a trip to Murren!

Room Tip: If you want fantastic mountain views, choose a room at the front of the hotel.

We spent two nights here during our time in Switzerland and it was by far the best two nights. The close proximity to the mountain, the fact that we can wake up to the sun and the mountain was fabulous. They provided my wife and I with directions for a nice 3 hour hike to Sprutz and Gimmelwald that I highly recommend doing. It was right there when we got out of the train station, super convenient and I don't think I heard any of the trains during my stay there. The hostess were great about service and offered to keep our luggage when we went for another hike the day of our departure, and were very helpful overall. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Pick one with a view of the mountain, you won't regret it.
