Hotel Engel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Stans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Room was clean and utilitarian. Zero charm.

Staff was helpful and courteous.

Restaurant (like everything else) in Stans is extremely costly!

Our friends say that most hotels in Switzerland follow the same trend (spartan and utilitarian) because people will pay to stay in such a beautiful place.

The market may allow for this now... Be careful if you want recommendations and return guests.

the good thing is that for dinner we went to the hotel across the square, hotel Linde I think, quite nice and friendly service.
We had to ask several times the staff for an allergic pillow (their pillows and duvets are with feathers), and we finally got it but the receptionist was not friendly. we had asked for a double bed, and got two separate beds. they said all rooms were with single beds, so no need to change bedroom!. Also the bells of the church were quite loud late at night and early in the morning! so be warned ( I know this is charming countryside Switzerland, but still).
the breakfast was a joke! twinning tea or coffee, cereal, and they bring to your table a few breads and salami, cheese and jam...

Room Tip: we had room 6 on the third floor facing the dorfplatz. When we wanted to close the shutters, we real...
