“Heaven in Switzerland!”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

The Hotel Jungfrau was in the middle of one of the most amazing locations in the world! No cars, just walking in the little village of Murren made for a very memorable vacation! The food was very nice and the view from the restaurant and porch are one of a kind. Looking out over the Jungfrau Range is breathtaking. The room was a bit small but very clean and quite substantial. We were with a tour group and know there are larger rooms with even nicer views but we stayed in our room only to sleep so what we had was fine. The small churches close to the hotel were beautiful and very peaceful as is the whole area. Taking the gondola from the bottom of the mountain to Murren was a unique experience in itself. I would return here if I am in Switzerland again. Switzerland was part of my dream vacation and Murren and the Hotel Jungfrau made it one I will never forget.

Room Tip: There was a fitness center close by which could be used.

The Hotel Jungfrau is a terrific family run hotel, right at the foot of the ski piste in Mürren. We visited during the peak February ski week. The rooms were quiet and modern, the beds were comfortable, and the bathrooms were fine with plentiful hot water. The Jungfrau is family run by Alan and Véronique Ramsay, who work hard to accommodate the needs of their guests. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. The ski-related facilities are terrific—the door to the ski room opens out right onto the piste, so you can easily ski in and ski out. Heated boot racks ensured that our boots were warm and dry every morning. When we return to Mürren, we shall certainly return to the Hotel Jungfrau.

Room Tip: Standard rooms and bathrooms can be tight, if more space is needed ask for a superior room. Ask for...

The Jungfrau hotel is located in the centre of Murren - near to the ice rink. This makes it a perfect spot for exploring Murren and for ski in/ski out adventures in the winter. The current host, Allan (scot) and Veronique (Swiss) make anyone feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble for them. This is a 4 Star hotel and highly recommended for people who want that bit of comfort. Best bits are the huge breakfasts and the late night sessions in the bar.

Room Tip: Rooms at the side or back might be a little quieter but anywhere in this hotel is good.

We stayed for three nights in September and found the hotel to be a good place to base ourselves for day trips to the Jungfrau, Grindlewald, Winteregg, Wengen, Schilthorn and Interlaken.
The hosts were very friendly, the rooms were very clean and the views were unbelievable. We had a corner room which had views of the Jungfrau and the meadows and a small balcony. The breakfast bar has a wide variety including hot and cold choices.
The rooms at the front of the hotel overlook the mountains and at the back, the meadow and half point to the Schilthorn.
We loved the town. There is a small grocery store that is well stocked. We purchased cheese, crackers and alcohol which we enjoyed on our balcony as a pre-dinner snack.
Also did a load of laundry at a nearby hotel. Our hotel will send out for 20 CHF, a full bag of laundry and return within 24 hours. Our friends got theirs back same day!
Would highly recommend this hotel and Murren.

Room Tip: Rooms at front have a balcony overlooking the mountains. Corner rooms see both the mountains and th...

Stayed here 3 nights with a Rick Steves tour. Hotel was great in all aspects, service, room, breakfast, view, etc, etc.
Murren is a great little sleepy, quiet village during non snow times and a great place to just enjoy the Alps. Both a cable car and train station are a short distance from the hotel. This makes getting around the valley easy and convenient for sight seeing and hiking.
Had two group meals at the hotel restaurant while we were staying there. Food was excellent and presented nicely. One of the meals was a barbecue.

We just had a wonderful 4 night stay at the Hotel Jungfrrau. We had no issues- the views were spectacular and had no complaints or issues. the front desk was ready to answer any questions we had and Jess in the dinning area was superb If you have a chance either walk along the path along the train route, take the train or take one of the hiking trails and have winteregg as your destination. The lunch we had was the best we had on our trip . The views are outstanding.

Room Tip: view of the mountains if you can get one. They are all quiet.

Enjoyed the Hotel Jungfrau, especially its generous public spaces -- a huge living room/lounge adjoining the lobby with great views. Single room small but comfortable; half-pension dinners were fine if not haut gourmet. Very friendly hosts, even had a loan iPad available for a small charge. Middle of the village so convenient to all the hiking options.
