The place was spotless and so welcoming. We stayed for 3 days and was greeted with a wonderful breakfast every morning, and a spotless place to come back to every night! The owner stayed up until midnight to wait for us because our plane got In late, and she woke up early with us when we had to leave! One...

Esther's is situated in the idyllic little hamlet, Gimmelwald, Switzerland, which is only reached by lift or on foot from Murren. No cars here! My room was small, as I was traveling by myself, but efficient for me and spotlessly clean, as was the rest of the guesthouse. I love the fact that a fully equipped kitchen is available for...

Beautiful setting, nice accommodations, and Esther was really nice to chat with and helpful! The room was comfortable with a great view. You can set out on foot from Esther's and be on your hike in seconds!

Stayed with Esther for three nights; room 4 was spacious, clean as could be and the view was exceptional; the only drawback is that you have to walk thru the kitchen to get to your bathroom/shower; it would be more private to rent one of the apartments; but it all worked out well and Esther was very pleasant and helpful....

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Esther's Guesthouse. The location is wonderful, right around the corner from the cable car. Esther is delightful and so helpful with all the information you need to know about the area. The beds were very comfortable, the guesthouse was clean and the kitchen was set up nicely to cook our own meal...

What a beautiful place to stay! I was in room #1. It was a single room with a shared bath. I had a view of the Alps while lying in bed! Check out my pictures. I had breakfast one morning. It was good however a little too much for me. I brought groceries in Interlaken. Each room has a place...

I had to read a lot of reviews to see one that thought the same way as we did on our stay at Esther's. Okay B&B (now, breakfast IS NOT included in the price, so cough up 16 'Swiss Franks' CHF for it) yet SPECTACULAR views from windows and deck of the Swiss Alps. You can not beat the scenery...

Esther's Guesthouse was the perfect place to stay. Great rooms and breakfast as well as being so easily accessible from the cable car. The share kitchen was also a nice addition as it allowed easy preparation of meals and a good opportunity to interact with other guests (if you want to). Gimmelwald itself is what you would expect from the...

Our 3 nights in mid Sept 2014 at Esther's Apartment A were perfect, weather included. We wanted to stay "in" the Alps NOT in the valley and certainly not in Interlaken - a nice place but we can stay in-town anywhere. The train-bus-cable car connection from Interlaken Ost were easy & typical Swiss-on-time. Esther's is one minute walk from the...
