We stopped in Grindelwald for two nights on our tour. The owners Gabriela and Gerhard could not have been more friendly. They gave us good advice on sightseeing and helped in planning. The food and service we had was 1st class. I would recommend this hotel 100% and would return without question.

This is a classic swiss hotel. Very rustic rooms with updated bathrooms. Great views of the Eiger and other mountains. The staff was very friendly. This is a family owned hotel seemingly passed on from generation to generation. Only drawback was it was a bit of a walk from the train station/center of town.

We stayed at the Gletschergarten years ago when we took our high school age children on a romp about Europe. We loved it then, and decided to return! We loved the location and the old world charm of the hotel - even though it has been thoughtfully renovated. The owners go out of their way to ensure a great time...

The owners are very nice. At first, they can pick us for free from the train station. And they help us to book a restaurant for cheese fondue. The most thankful to them is that they help to check the weather going to Jungfraujoch!! We are so lucky to have them because they advise us to go one day later...

My daughter and I spent 5 wonderful nights at the Gletschergarten Hotel. This is the fourth generation that has operated the hotel and the dedication to hospitality and tradition was quite evident.

Wonderful inn and fabulous inn keepers. Like staying with your Aunt or Uncle. There was a cool basement like from your childhood with board games and pool, ping pong and foos ball. The room was super clean with a modern bathroom and heated towel rack. The views were exceptional.
