Our room at the Derby was very nice, with awesome bedding, the staff was always very helpful and very nice. The breakfast buffet was very good also. I would stay again. With its location in front of the train station it was also very convenient. We had a great meal at the resturaunt downstairs.

Right on the center, its literally on the train station (with no any trains noise). Kind of warm vibe, we felt in love with Evy from the recaption who gave us such a warm welcoming and was so helpful and cute to us. Decent breakfast,free parking,hypnotic mountain view from the room balcony, and convenient bed.

We had planned a wonderful days walking only to be thwarted by the low crowd and rain so we took refuge in this restaurant owing to its proximity to the station. The menu was traditionally Swiss with the usual mix of fondue, rosti and schnitzel. All were fine, if a little uninspiring, but that may be a reflection of the...

This hotel is directly opposite the railway station so it is in an excellent location, the rooms either face the station or the Eiger mountain. You dont hear the trains from the hotel. I would defintaly recomment going for the room with the views, just sitting on the balcony looking out was the best for us. The hotel is alittle...

Adjacent the train station, and near everything in Grindelwald (it's a tiny town), this hotel has train or mountain (Eiger) views. Ask for mountain side, small but adequate balcony makes lounging with some wine and cheese fun. Fantastic views, great breakfast, helpful friendly staff, great value!

The hotel is just beside the train station. It is very convenient. The view from the room is awesome. There is free breakfast in the morning from 6-10am. One of the staff was not very friendly when I checked in as I had exceed the max number of people. However, she had managed to find a new room for me...

Stayed here for 4 nights/ 5 days during recent my trip to Switzerland. As mentioned by other reviewers, the Hotel is located just next to the train station (and since the train is going to be your main mode of transportation to/ from Grindelwald ) when it comes to location, it can’t get any better than this.

The hotel is very close to the train station, 1-2minutes walk from room to train. And not far from the town because Grindelwald is not big. You can walk around very easy. The hotel is very close to train station but not noisy. I booked Junior suite with mountain view. The room is spacious and clean. The Eiger view from...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The very walls that greet you as you approach the Hotel Derby are steeped in history. The "Hotel de la Gare" was built here by the legendary Captain Gsteiger at the end of the 19th century. The same underlying principle applied then as it does now: we want to offer our guests a holiday that will long remain with them as a happy memory. Just travelling to the Derby is a pleasure in itself. The journey by rail could hardly be easier. We are passionate about hospitality and welcome you with a very special combination of attention to details and unobtrusive service. Stylish rooms and suites offer you plenty of space to unwind, relax and take in the splendid Mountain View. All rooms offer view to the surrounding mountains and are equipped with shower or bath/toilet, satellite TV, minibar and safe. The junior suites additionally provide a separate sitting corner. Most of the rooms have a balcony. In total 4 restaurants are at your choice. Either for an elegant dining experience, a tasteful 5-course-menu, a hearty Swiss dish or one of the various fondue specialities, our knowledgeable staff will be happy to advise you and to complete your stay by an attentive service. ... more   less
