Having crossed the Foopass on our Via Alpina trek, we stayed here overnight. We enjoyed a very pleasant stay in a four-bed room with our own bathroom. The very cordial desk staff spoke English and was very attentive. Our room had pleasant views and was very quiet. The breakfast buffet was good and generous. The hotel is located in the...

the owner is very friendly and helpful, gives good advice for the next day's hike. the quality of the rooms seem to vary a lot. mine was a ex-massage room and it was extremely small. although it was newly renovated the room was dirty, especially the bath room was very dirty, with hairs in the shower. otherwise, the hotel was...

Took a trip to Canton Glarus because my grandmother came from Linthal but no hotels answered our inquiries so we settled on Elm and Hotel Elmer. The hotel was wonderful and the staff was great. Anna Marie was so nice and René the owner also nice and helpful. The hotel provided us with some free passes to use the gondolas...

Hotel Elmer is a gem. Herr Bassler is a wonderful host and the restaurant is first class. I highly recommend Hotel Elmer if you are traveling to Elm. The rooms facing the mountains have a view of Martins Loch and pastoral cow grazing out the window, worth the somewhat high rate. The restaurant is very good and serves typical Swiss...

Stayed here one night early July 2014 after 1 day hiking the Via Alpina mostly in wet weather. The lady who greeted us recognised instantly that our immediate needs were: 1) somewhere to put our wet boots, jackets etc and b) a beer. She could not have been more helpful. Room was comfortable (but try not to get one overlooking...

Here's the review I just wrote for yelp: Love this hotel, the people who run it, and the location! This occasion was the second time I've stayed and it will not be the last. At 85 francs for a single it is one of the best deals in Glarus. Book directly with the hotel and save, on line they wanted...

We were at Elmer hotel in June 2013 and were very impressed with the warm friendly atmosphere. We were hiking and the owner gave us very knowlegable local advice and went out of her way to assist us. The town and the area is facinating and the views are beyond description. I would highly recommend this hotel

We were at the Hotel Elmer im March 2012, with a group of 30 people for a ski-weekend. Everything was well organised (Check-In for a group in a relativ little hotel can be tricky). The dinner was very good. The service warm and friendly. The kids played around everywhere in the Hotel and the staff felt very well with that....

Hotel Elmer is in Elm, a small quiet village a shot walk away from the ski slopes and cable car. The rooms are nicely decorated but to be honest its the view that gets you. Our room had a very big window overlooking the snowy mountains and the odd log cabin. The owner was very nice and happy to chat,...
