This is the 3rd time I have stayed at Chalet im Rohr, the first being in 1995. We again choose this hotel as its affordable. All other hotels are SOOOOO expensive. I would describe this hotel as rustic. The floors creak, the mattress is a bit soft and showers and toilets are shared, but it's a great location at a great price. Each room has its own basin and table and chairs and is quite spacious, and the quilts keep you cosy warm overnight. There are 2 showers and 2 toilets on each floor and we never had to wait for either during our 3 nights there in June 2012. The owner Elspeth and her husband are welcoming and friendly. The hotel has a sensational view of Staubbach Falls, and there is a verandah to sit on in the evenings to enjoy a well deserved refreshing beverage (brandies and red wine were our choice, but not mixed together of course). Only word of warning is to pack earplugs, as the hotel is right next to a gorgeous church, and the bell in the church sounds every quarter Hour and on the hour. An earplug and a full day up the mountain cuts out the sound. I'd highly recommend chalet im rohr as for the price you can then afford to eat out, although a kitchen is available for guests to use.
