“Family fun in beautiful Switzerland!”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

We had a fabulous stay at the Eiger Guesthouse!! It was the first visit for our party of 7 - me and my husband, my sister and brother-in-law and my 3 nephews!! One of my nephews got altitude sickness the very first day and we thought we might have to leave. Turns out the young woman who works at Eiger is also a nurse!! A little TLC and the nephew was back on track ad we continued to enjoy our stay. The Guesthouse is lovely and the views are amazing!! We can't wait for our next visit. Highly recommended!!!!!

Stayed at the Eiger Guesthouse for Inferno week. What a great place. Ema creates such a warm reception. The rooms are very good. We had one of the ensuites on the top floor. Ask for these as they are very good for the price. The restaurant is very good and the food is extremely good. The atmosphere at the bar is so friendly and engaging you'll be there all night. Located right across from the train station you have no walk to the hotel. You can jump on the train to Winteregg to ski or just ski through the village to the main lifts. Can't recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the ensuites on the top floor

We stayed here for two nights and the Eiger Guesthouse was so fantastic we are already thinking about going back! We were in a Superior Room and the view over the mountains was incredible, the room was very clean and comfortable and the staff were amazingly helpful and friendly. They suggested nice walks, looked up times for the cable car and went out of their way to be kind and accommodating. We ate in the restaurant the first night and returned the second the food was so good - although the portions were sometimes so generous we couldn't eat it all. We were also given a free pass to the local pool which was a lovely touch and really appreciated. Bravo Eiger Guesthouse!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a mountain view - you won't regret it!

We stayed here for a week, at the beginning of February, and were completely thrilled with the guesthouse and the wonderful staff. As vegetarians, we are used to being fobbed off with unimaginative and inadequate food, so it was an absolute joy to be looked after by a chef who produced the most delicious meals, night after night. We would have liked to take him home with us! Ema all the staff were helpful and friendly, the rooms were lovely, in fact the entire place was cosy and welcoming and we would never stay anywhere else in Murren.

The entire team at the Eiger Guesthouse made our trip the success it was. Helpful, friendly, fun.
The room was great. The kitchen did us proud when we ate there most evenings, and do ask Ema's tips from her wine list. You will not be disappointed!
The bar is a very friendly place to mix with fellow travellers and locals alike. With an occasional night of lively live music. Which was not heard by my wife and baby up stairs by the way.
Location could not be easier. The BLM station is literally across the street.
The view...if you want to know what awesome really is. Come and check it out.

We have booked already for next year.

Room Tip: Ask for a mountain view and weather permitting you will be stunned. Sorry if room 4 is unavailable...

We wanted a cheaper hotel near the train station and is right across the street. Friendly staff and comfy beds. I would just order your food ala carte and not include it in the room price. Breakfast is Typical European breakfast. Done very nicely though. Dinner was only OK. Steep stairs might hurt you if you are older.

Room Tip: You want a view. Street side.
