Located at the pass street of the Grimsel lies the Handeck. Although the prices are quite high, especially the cuisine is worth it! For guests who love to spend some time in the middle of an amazing mountain-nature and still having all the comfort.

And the staff was extremely caring and helpful. The food was quite nice, the breakfast buffet was excellent, and we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. The... More

Good location for hiking around the Grimsel Pass. Solid and rustic rooms, great food and friendly staff. Room rates in high season rather high, food and wine reasonably priced. Spa rather small and can be crowded.

This hotel proves that you can be family- and child-friendly while still maintaining exceptional quality and service! The restaurant was excellent and the children's buffet was perfect for our two young ones. The... More

I travel a lot and stay in hotels all the time but this is easily one of the best hotels I ever experienced. The staff, the rooms, the attention to details: simply perfect. As was the weather, I admit. Not to forget the restaurant and its outstanding chef! During holiday season, there is a special kids dining room. And they... More

Very nice play area for the children and chairs for the adult to look out. For the ones without any fear of heights, you can take a take a walk... More

Stayed 2 nights for a family gathering. We stayed in the 600 rooms (separate house). Lovely modern room, loved the bathroom. Not huge but we had a nice balcony.Problem with at least our room was the extremely thin walls and door. Some guests were leaving at 4am and we could hear everything as of there were no door at all.... More

We loved our stay at this hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Our rate included dinner and breakfast and both meals were delicious. The location was great for hiking in the mountains and visiting the nearby Reichenbach Falls and Aare Gorge. We would definitely visit again someday!

“Rooms on the west side of the building (upper floors) if you dislike the sound of motorbikes and cars. We didn't check the other buildings, but they are even further away from the road.”
