The Hotel Baren is a truly magical chocolate box Swiss Chalet Hotel dating from the 18th century run by Stephen and Margo Dedman who as a team did everything to make our stay in Jan. 2017 as pleasurable as could be. Clean comfortable rooms, excellent food and 15 mins away Gstaad in one direction and Glacier 3000 in the other....

The Baren restaurant is located in one of the oldest and most beautiful chalet of the region in the centre of the small Gsteig village, only 10 minutes away from Gstaad. It is by far one of the best quality/price ratio restaurant in the region offering both typical Swiss cuisine on the ground floor and a more refined international menu...

This is one of the coziest place in the region. Sadly management has been changing all the time over the past few years. It looks like this time they have it in good hands. The famous local raclette is excellent and you can also have good pasta. A must see if you come to Gstaad!

If you want experience Raclette or Fondue in an original setting, this is the place to be. You need to book a table in the restaurant area with the open fire. The quality of the cheese is amazing and the hospitality of the chef outstanding. The place is around 10 min away from Gstaad, but definitely worth the trip. Actually,...

Highly recommend the Baren Gsteig - if you are ever passing through the area my husband and I would suggest that you stop by the Baren for either for dinner, lunch, a drink or overnight accommodation. Beautiful surrounding countryside, walking distance to the cable car to the top of the mountain.

Good to visit again for lunch, after an absence of some years this historic, character small roadside hotel. Food and service and facilities excellent and a tribute to the quite new owners. Certainly the hotel is a great incentive after an over 2 hour walk down the mountain from San etch. Looking forward to having lunch again at this hotel.

Gsteig is a pretty village between Les Diablerets and Gstaad . The Baren is a Hotel Restaurant. We had a very enjoyable lunch on our way home from a shopping trip. The food was excellent. We had the menu of the day. The starter was a green salad which was so fresh it could have been picked minutes before serving....

This hotel is about 15 minutes drive from Gstaad along the main road. Gsteig is a small village with a couple of other hotels and a small grocery store. Our room was pretty minimalist in so far as decor is concerned but had all of the usual amenities (except a television set... but did you really come to Switzerland to...

Rooms full of blonde wood and red gingham, a view of mountains, fondue for dinner: it doesn't get more Swiss than this. The Baeren is well located for walking - especially if you like walking uphill. Lots of hiking trails pass the front door. There are no TVs so spend evenings in the restaurant eating a variety of traditional Swiss...

Simple, yet elegant Swiss tradition with a modern touch, this little gem of a restaurant and hotel is the chosen venue for our wedding in 2015. We have searched high and low for the perfect place and nowhere have we been met with better hospitality and good company. The owners of the hotel are a young couple that have changed...
