Dear Belvedere guest.
Wonderful news, great news, thank you so much for your review. You write, that our hotel is worth the money. The Swiss Franc is right now (2012) overvalued by 30% to 40% (depending on currency). This means, would the Swiss Franc have its correct value, we would be cheaper by that percentage. We found out, that an American guest, who stayed with us last summer, paid for an Eiger facing Junior-Suite US$ 600 and we found out, that he had paid $ 300.- for the same room when he was with us the last time. The amount charged in our currency, the Swiss Francs was however both times the same, that means in other words, that the US dollar has lost half of its value against the Swiss Franc since his last visit. This is a fact and it is simply not fair, that some Hedge fond managers try to kill the Swiss export companies and the tourism sector to optimise their profits.
We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon and we hope, that the Swiss Franc will lose a lot of value soon.
With best regards.
Urs-B. Hauser

This was our fourth year at the Belvedere, and as usual the standard of the hotel was outstanding. The cuisine is exceptional as is the service from the very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Our Eiger view room was confortably furnished and the view was staggering. We will definately be back again.

Room Tip: Pick a high floor Eiger view room..... amazing

Dear regular Belvedere guest.
Very many thanks for having returned to our hotel. We highly appreciate your loyalty. And thank you also for having written another fantastic review. Tripadvisor is getting more and more popular and reviews like yours get more and more valuable.
Switzerland has a big problem right now, as some guys on some stock markets managed to make the Swiss Franc so expensive, that it is about 40% overvalued now. This means, our products, our services have increased by that percentage and that without having added one single penny to our rates. Unfortunately this will kill a lot of businesses, only in Grindelwald two hotels had to close within the last 3 month.
We will do our utmost to survive also that crisis and regular guests like you will be one of the decisive factors. Wishing you all the best and hoping that you will return in the not too distant future, we remain with best regards.

We stayed at the Belvedere as part of a week spent hiking in the local area. Amazing staff who will help with all requests. It was a great vacation with our 6 year old as well. Very accommodating and great pool facility. It is our daughter's favorite hotel. The food is outstanding as is the wine they produced to celebrate their recent anniversary. The local area is quiet with few activities outside of hiking and enjoying the gorgeous surroundings.

Dear Belvedere guests.
Very many thanks for having chosen the Belvedere for your stay in Grindelwald. And thank you so much for having taken your time to write that wonderful review. Our hotel offers several different kind of family rooms and family suites. There is also a Games room for children and most of the children love, just like their parents, the Outdoor Salt Water Jacuzzi, We are very happy to hear, that we are the favourite hotel of your daughter and hope that she will be able to convince you to return soon. Grindelwald is also very special in the summer time, be it for an active holiday, be it to just enjoy nature. During school holidays there is also a special children program, run by the local Tourist Office.
Wishing you a wonderful 2012, we remain with best regards
Silvia & Urs Hauser, with children Carole and Philip (both students, but they help at the hotel on weekends and during their holidays)

To cut straight to the point; this hotel is 5* perfect !
In a perfect location, with brilliant service, amazing foods, gorgeous bedrooms and enough for everyone to do. The staff are brilliant and very helpful - everything is so clean and everything is on time - including buses/trains etc! Grindelwald in itself is beautiful, clean and there is nothing better than the fresh air in the snowy mountains!
Perfect skiing/snowboarding holiday whether you are a couple, family, or have young children, this hotel will cater for any of your needs! I will definitely be going back!

Dear Belvedere guest.
We can hardly wait to welcome you again, thank you for informing the English speaking world, that you will return to our hotel, that you really enjoyed your stay. Could we put in place the investments planned, we could then easily apply for the 5th star. Unfortunately we could not yet get the necessary building permit. And right now, with the strongly overvalued Swiss Franc, not many guests would probably be ready to pay for the additional service, that would have to be provided, would we want to be a 5 star hotel. But the hotel seems to be just right as it is for you and no major changes to the hotel will be done in the near future anyhow. Let's hope that you review will help to make many more persons decide to stay at our family run hotel. Thanking you for having chosen our hotel for your stay with us in Grindelwald, we remain with best regards.
Silvia & Urs Hauser, owners in 3rd generation.

Everything about this hotel is superb. excellant service, extremely welcoming, great food all topped off with the most fantastic views of the mountains. There is also a good Spa/wellness centre and easy access to the train Station ski buses etc. Once visited you will want to return again and again.

Room Tip: all rooms are good but for me worth paying extra for an eiger view

Dear Belvedere guest.
Thank you so much for having returned to our hotel. We are really grateful. It is correct, we do have guests who return very regularly, many of them every year, some even twice to three times a year. Even from countries like South America or Asia, there are regular guests who have returned more than 10 times. For us, as a small family business, the regulars are the decisive factor or success. We do not have a marketing budget like chains or big hotels, we depend on the mouth to mouth recommendations and since a few years on reviews like this one. We are so grateful that you help to spread the word, thank you so much.
Looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future, we remain with best regards.
Silvia & Urs Hauser with children Carole and Philip (business students who come to help us at the hotel often).

Spent a week heer skiing on half board. No need to eat anywhere else - great food. Easy walk to train station, ski train and ski buses. Good pools and wellness centre. Comfortable rooms and well worth the small extra for the Eiger views.
