Surrounded by water and mountains high up in the Swiss alps this stunning hotel delivered more than we were expecting. We chose the Grimsel Hospiz for its stunning position and useful location as a convenient overnight stop between Italy and Germany. The staff were, without exception, delightful and could not have done more to help. The hotel has been really...

The location of this carefully refurbished hotel is truly stunning. Situated on a little peninsula it overlooks the artificial Grimsel lake, one of the many hydroelectric reservoirs in the area. There is a lovely hiking trail that starts right beneath the hotel that takes you along the lakeshore. Make sure to wear you hiking boots, though, parts of the trail...

It really is on top of the world. The view from our room was spectacular overlooking one of the lakes that feed the giant hydro plant. Melt water cascaded into the lake and could be heard crashing its way down the steep slopes. The hotel is chic with large well appointed rooms and bathroom. Definitely luxurious with water and chocolates...

We were amazed how beautiful the hotel was, considering it is high up on a peak all by itself, and with the views of the alps it was like you were in the middle of a movie set. The four course dinner and buffet breakfast included in the price of the room was excellent, and so was the service. The...

We stayed here for 2 nights during our road trip of the Swiss and Italian alps, I chose this hotel as it is actually on the Grimsel pass, what a location! It is a wonderful hotel and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. We were lucky to have beautiful weather while we were there and sitting on the...

Without the infrastructure of the Hydro-power plants it would be impossible to get there - which is why the place is so remote. I recommend going in winter, when the beautifully styled house is like a refuge inmidst of the high-alpine surroundings. Take a bath in the open-air hot-tub (wear a warm hat when doing so during a snow-storm!), chose...

The refurbished historic hotel at Grimsel Pass provides an outstanding experience in an Alpine environment in Summer and, jn particular, in Winter. The surrounding mountain peaks are spectacular. The highly motivated hotel staff and an excellent wine cellar deep in the rock add to the feeling of "warmth and a certain luxury".

We first happened upon the Grimsel Hospiz while driving through the Alps in summer 1994. It was getting dark out and we thought we would have a pitch a tent, then were delighted to happen upon the Grimsel. If you like fancy, this might not be the place for you. If you are happy with a clean, "natural" (lots of...

We really enjoyed Grimsel Hospitz.It is a heritage building overlooking some great scenery. The only issue was the cost of laundry. Laundry is charged per item - pants cost 12 CHF and shirts 8 CHF. The equivalent of one standard load of washing would have cost us over 108 CHF ($125 AU). We ended up washing our essential items in...

We stayed two days, hiking, walking, admiring the gorgeous scene... Good food, friendly staff, excellent room & bathroom. Superb to take a day-off. Spectacular views from the mountains... take the walk on the Sidelhorn, first by cable car, then walking uphill... back to hotel after 4 1/2 hours.
