My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Gletschergarten at the end of May 2015. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. We had a lovely room with a view of the formidable Eiger, and the room was homey and welcoming. The breakfasts were very good, and the dining room was charming. The hotel offers a fixed price...

This is perfect spot! Where to begin: stunning views, a bit out of town so you aren't in the crowds of Grindewald but easy walk into town or train station. The family who owns this (115 years and running!) are incredibly helpful and have perfect English. The mattress is one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on, spotlessly...

Extremely pleased with my 3 night stay. The service is the friendliest I have ever gotten from a hotel. The location is very ideal; around a 10 minute walk to the central part of town. The interior of the hotel is very cozy and the food was delicious as well. I highly recommend the 4 course meal for dinner one...

I stayed here with my wife for 3 nights for a long weekend of activities and relaxing. The hotel is only a 5 - 10 minute walk from the main restaurants and the gondola to First (15 mins to the station). The superior room we had was spacious with a recently refurbished bathroom. Our balcony had an amazing view onto...

Very nice familyhotel even though there was no air conditioner or fridge in the room. The ownercouple was kind and also expert to give good advices about interesting things in the area - as well from hiking routes. The dinner in the hotel was very superb. There spread out also excellent view from the hotel to the snow-covered mountains.

Perfect place to stay. From the very start, communication was wonderful. The owners are so warm and helpful. Spectacular views and on the edge of town so away from the hustle and bustle of Grindewald but still walking distance to the train. We stayed in a family suite across the street and walked to the hotel for breakfast each day....

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights stay at Hotel Gletschergarten back in June. In fact, it is one of the nicest lodgings we've ever stayed at and it has become one of our favorites in Europe now. As a family who travels frequently, we believe lodgings could easily "break or make" our vacations, and this chalet hotel has truly exceeded...

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our 2.5 week honeymoon as we hiked through the Alps. Grindelwald and this hotel were, by far, our favorite home away from home of the whole trip. Incredible views from our room, very comfortable facilities, and the most friendly and welcoming staff! After a long day of hiking, we relaxed...

I left my passport and my wife's in the safe in our room... then drove 5 hours to Italy for the second leg of the trip. My wife was very angry so I called the hotel.

Grindelwald is a pretty busy but small mountain town with great access to First and Bachalpsee and other great hikes. My teenage son and I loved staying at this family run, very clean and simple hotel. We ended up not being in the hotel proper but living across the street in the family home of the owners, the Michel family,...
