This old historic hotel just below the Grimselpass is a wonderful weekend destination with big and comfortable rooms, superb food and mostly great service. The views are absolutely stunning and the reading corner with views of the dam is just the perfect spot to enjoy a drink, a book or a chat. Construction of a new dam is currently ongoing and the staff made sure I was aware of it when booking the room but was not bothered for a single moment by any noise either during the day or the night. The reception staff seemed to have been a bit overwhelmed on this season closing weekend, especially with the hotel being pretty full, but they still did an okay job answering questions. The food was simply terrific which is great news given that there are no other restaurants a quick stroll away. Their wine soup is a very original soury mushroom soup, a great appetizer. And the chicken fricasse with polenta js not only super good but also a large option, not a given in most Swiss restaurants. Locally sourced ice cream is a great idea to close a meal. And then the absolute highlight comes the next morning with one of the best breakfast buffets, special kudos for their wonderful bakery products, especially the quintessentially Swiss zopf and also their homemade birchermüsli. The Grimsel Hospiz is not a cheap stay but most definitely worth considering for a special occassion.

The location of the hotel, the historic building and the promise of a luxury environment are the main reasons to stay there. However, we were very disapointed by the minimalistic service, without much smiles. We would have expected a much warmer and welcoming service to compensate for the disturbance related to the unavoidable noise of the new dam construction. In the end, the prices are well too high for this level of service.

The long and adventurous journey by post bus, cable car, underground bus ride and again cable ride is very impressive. The weather on the Grimsel welcomed us very stormy, but the reception was even more charming. Despite the nasty weather we enjoyed the hotpot very much. Coffee and cake were served in the Arvensaal in front of an open fire, afterwards we visited the wine cellar to choose the right wine for dinner. The dinner, where you can choose between 4-6 courses, was simply excellent! Many thanks to the kitchen crew for responding to our wishes at such short notice. After an excellent night's rest a rich breakfast buffet awaited us. Unfortunately, there was no sunshine on the way back, but this did not spoil the experience. Once again many thanks to the hosts and crew!

We spent two nights in Grimsel Hospiz. We could have easily spent more days there. To start with the location is awesome. The hotel is equally awesome. The dinner options are great and portions are for visitors who have spent the day outdoors. The wine list is large enough and you will certainly find a wine to with your dinner choice. The options how to spend a day are also eqully great. We went e.g. to tour the Grimsel hydropowerplant... 3 km into the mountain. It totally exceeded all our expectations. Stop reading reviews...go there!
