Hotel Edelweiss

Reviewed 10 October 2011

We stayed at the Hotel Edelweiss in Sept for three nights. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. Nothing really flashy about the room or hotel but very comfortable/clean. The bathroom seemed to be remodeled maybe in the last year or two, and was clean, good size and modern. The breakfast was pretty much standard European breakfast, which I enjoyed. The main reason we selected the hotel was for it's view and it did not disappoint. Your looking right down on the valley with no building to impead the view. The location was good, 3 minute walk to the train and about 7-8 minutes to the lift, 3-4 minutes to the co-op. Also the owners spoke English and we appreciated that.

We had an eleven day holiday in the mountain resort of Murren in the Bernese Oberland. We stayed at the Edelwiess Hotel. The first thing to say is we had a fabulous holiday and the hotel is in a superb location giving uniterrupted views across to the Eiger, Monch and Silberhorn on the other side of the Lauterbrunnen valley. On the face of it it is not the most attractive builing in the village, being flat roofed rather than chalet style, inside though it is modern, light and airy and the service very friendly. We had booked with Inghams and had expected a 'village view' room as we were on a limited budget. Imagine our suprise when we found that we had been given a very nice mountain view room. A definite plus on the part of the management. Our room came with a very good shower, some had a bath. We had booked half-board with Inghams and included in the deal a free packed lunch. Although this arrangement meant that the choice was limited at the evening meal, the food was very good and never repeated itself over the period we were there. It would have been nice if the packed lunches were a little more varied, but that is a quibble. It made the holiday affordable, as make no mistake about it, Switzerland is VERY expensive at present. Another good feature of the hotel is the excellent terrace on which we often had our (free) afternoon tea and cake, also overlooking the mountains. It's position in the town is very convenient being as it is very close to the station and sports centre, to which we had free access to the 25m pool and sauna. It is a wonderfully peacefull village, almost completely vehicle free, accessed by cable car from Lauterbrunnen and then a short train ride from Grutschalp. The surrounding scenery and walks is the stuff of dreams. I would strongly recommend that anyone visiting Murren take advantage of the 'Fly bags' facility offered by Swiss Airlines, that takes your bags from airport check in direct to the hotel, for a very modest charge. It makes the 3hr transfer, a delightful excursion in itself, much more pleasant. The route via Luzerne is well worth taking in one direction at least as it is more picteresque though one hour longer than the route through Berne.

This was my third visit to Murren. Each time we stayed in Hotel Edelweiss with our room overlooking Lauterbrunnen valley. We'll be back ! Murren is a small village about 2000 feet above the valley floor. The view across the valley, and from the hotel rooms, is toward Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau, three of the most beautiful snow covered peaks in Europe. Great hiking around Murren and ready travel via public transportation throughout the region. The hotel is family owned with Daniel and Sandra the host and hostest. Both are gracious and helpful. Simply stated, we find the hotel excellent in every way for a vacation stay. I recommend Murren and Hotel Edelweiss to anyone visiting the Jungfrau region.

Our room was comfortable with a small balcony. The breakfast room was bright though the buffet choice became boring after day 3. The lounge was comfortable enough though getting a chance to use the single "guest" computer could be a trying experience there did not seem to be a booking system or limitation on how long guests could uses it. So we found trying to check our flight information was thwarted.
The dining room was a bit to regimented for our tastes and the food was not of the best quality (we were staying halfboard so there was no choice in the menu just a set meal) overly salted and well just boring. If you were eating any time after 8pm your food was overpowered by the smell of the bleech being used to clean down the kitchen and loo.
Given a choice we would not stay there again.
