“Still wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

I first came to Hotel Ofenhorn after an aborted attempt in August, 2006 at the Bortellicke, which was impassable due to snow. I'd walked nearly six hours and arrived at the Hotel Ofenhorn, almost empty at that period when the Swiss Germans are mostly finished with their vacations. It was a haven of comfort and cleanliness. I dragged my husband back this time and it was even better, but unfortunately more expensive. It has been rated a "historic hotel" and the prices have increased accordingly. We paid 160chf for a double room that did not have a bathroom, and I imagine having a bathroom would be even more expensive. It is very beautiful, though, and still worth it. They've managed to keep the old wall paper and painted decorations on the ceilings. The wooden floors show years of wear and care. The food was excellent, and no Aromat to be found (the ubiquitous Valais spice, sort of like a no-fat bouillon found in all medium quality restaurants). Beautiful hotel, and worth the price.

We stayed here in early July. This is a great starting point for hiking in Switzerland. The Binn valley offers hiking that is much more tranquil than other parts of the country. The staff were knowledgable about hiking and gave great advice about trails. This is not a town with lots of entertainment but it is a great launching point for a great hiking experience. The hotel therefore is not an urban hotel but rather a great place to have a mountain experince. As a unilingual anglophone language was never a problem at the hotel. The room was clean and we were fortunate to have our own bathroom and shower. We loved the Ofenhorn and would love to return.

This hotel has a lot of character as it is one of the Swiss Historic Hotels and it has recently undergone extensive renovation. However, we thought it was very overpriced, possibly as a result of the recent expenditure. For CHF170 per night for a double room, we had shared toilet and shower facilities on the landing, and then only 3 showers and 2 toilets for about 12 rooms. There were no toiletries provided anywhere except for one sachet of shower gel per person for our 2 night stay. The breakfast was limited with a small choice of cereals and no fruit, eggs or birchermuesli which is typically Swiss and which we have had provided in much cheaper hotels. A cup of mint tea in the bar cost CHF4.50.
