We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights stay at Hotel Gletschergarten back in June. In fact, it is one of the nicest lodgings we've ever stayed at and it has become one of our favorites in Europe now. As a family who travels frequently, we believe lodgings could easily "break or make" our vacations, and this chalet hotel has truly exceeded...

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our 2.5 week honeymoon as we hiked through the Alps. Grindelwald and this hotel were, by far, our favorite home away from home of the whole trip. Incredible views from our room, very comfortable facilities, and the most friendly and welcoming staff! After a long day of hiking, we relaxed...

I left my passport and my wife's in the safe in our room... then drove 5 hours to Italy for the second leg of the trip. My wife was very angry so I called the hotel. They arranged a personal courier to hand deliver the passports the next day! It wasn't cheap, but they handled everything and allowed me to...

Grindelwald is a pretty busy but small mountain town with great access to First and Bachalpsee and other great hikes. My teenage son and I loved staying at this family run, very clean and simple hotel. We ended up not being in the hotel proper but living across the street in the family home of the owners, the Michel family,...

Great welcome, hospitality and service. The room was delightful - with balcony and views. Location was brilliant - cable cars nearby, and a bus stop almost outside the front entrance. We particularly liked the very good advice on the best hiking - and, of course, the delicious breakfasts and dinners.

My wife and I loved everything about the Gletschergarten. A classic 100 year-old Swiss chalet hotel, nicely furnished in a traditional, low-key way, and all well-maintained throughout. Our bedroom was well equipped, with windows on two sides, and a good L-shaped balcony. Lovely food - we ate dinner in the hotel every evening in our two-week stay. The girls who...

Gabriela and Gerhard, and their son Lars, attend to their guests with almost incredible warmth and sensitivity. From arrival to departure, one feels welcome to a rare degree. The rooms are chalet-style, beautifully furnished, and the meals are inexpensive and impeccably served. The breads at breakfast come from the bakery opposite and are excellent. The hotel arranges tickets for all...

I stayed here for two nights and cannot recommend it highly enough. This fourth generation hotel is beautiful and charming and the hosts are welcoming and helpful.
