The hotel is very beautiful to look at with ornate and delightfully painted wooden paneling decorating the exterior- a classic styled Swiss home. The ground floor is taken-up with several restaurants with the hotel reception on the fist floor (or second floor of you are an American). The staff are very nice and show you to your room which looks... More

Ggreat location and very entertaining since you can see people walking on the promenade. The waiters are very friendly, the food is very high quality and suitable for every one in the family. Creative starters and mainstream main courses.

This is an icon in Gstaad probably only second to the Hotel Palace. The food is excellent the service perfect and extremely friendly! It is expensive but worth it one has a wonderful time in either the main dineing room the cave or the terrace. One of Gstaads special experiences highly recommend a visit.

Returned to the Olden after a couple of years. They have added a couple of new rooms where the salon used to be. Stayed in room 31; 2 bedroom suite with a sitting room with log fire, and big terrace. Can't think that we would want to stay anywhere else. Staff are universally friendly and helpful, although I would single... More

The Olden makes the BEST risotto with black truffle. The risotto is very creamy & with plenty of finely shaved black truffle. It is so good I am unable to eat any other dish every time we dine at this restaurant. The waiters are very professional but lots of fun always offering exceptional service.

One of the great spots for an apero is the Olden Ice Bar. Sit outside with heaters and watch all the fashionistas stroll by. Listen to your bar mates conversations. Great people interacting spot. The indoor bar was wall to wall bodies....So the ice bar wins plus the bonus of the promenaders go right by you. Cheers!

Have not stayed here, but have viewed the rooms. I have eaten here numerous times. The bar area, is great for people watching, food and service very good. The dining room is not nearly as pleasant as the bar....
