    We had a wonderful stay at Esther's in Gimmelwald, it is a good value for the Berner Oberland. Breakfast is not included but there is a kitchen you can use to cook meals. Esther is so kind, she talked to us a lot about Gimmelwald...More

    Gimmelwald is not for everyone. Tiny and remote with limited amenities, it is a fairy tale of a village lost in time. The community clings to the side of a mountain at 4,500 feet, gazing across a deep valley. Only one lane runs through it,...More

    I have stayed in Esther’s Guest House 7 times since 1990, most recently in August and September, 2015. Several previous times I was traveling alone; this time I was with a friend. Gimmelwald is my “favorite place in the world”, and I would never consider...More

    This very smartly-designed guesthouse gave us a large, comfortable room with a stunning view, at an affordable price due to a shared bathroom (with one other room) and kitchen area. We found the service to be nice and knowledgeable, and loved Gimmelwald's charm. Next time...More

    This place is awesome. Esther is very nice, knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms are good for a B&B and the kitchen has plenty of room and is well stocked. Gimmelwald is a great village to set up as a base, and Esther's is right near...More

    You can walk into Murren but it is a hike. Much easier to take the cable car to Murren (higher) or Schetlberg (lower). Both will provide you with a quick transfer to main train or bus stops. Worth the trip to stay in... More
