Spent four wonderful nights at the Gletschergarten Hotel, and cannot speak highly enough of the hospitality shown by the incomparable hosts, Gabriella, Gerhardt and Lars. From being picked up and dropped off at the train station, to the many tips on the local area and incredible four course dinner, the attention to detail and care shown by the hosts was...

Yes it's pricey but you get something for your money! 125 year old chalet hotel, friendly reception by the owners, quiet location off the crowds, big rooms, blazingly fast Internet, good breakfast. They also sell all tickets for trains etc. there. The rooms still ooze the charm of the seventies, for me a trip back memory lane! They even still...

Could the Gletschergarten really be as good as the hundreds of positive reviews on TripAdvisor claimed? Hooray, hooray: the answer is yeah! In June we spent a week in their Eiger apartment, just across the road from the hotel. It was a perfect size for a couple, with comfy beds, well-equipped kitchen (including both cafetière and filter coffee maker), excellent...

A family run hotel providing excellent facilities, friendly welcome and service, very comfortable well equipped rooms, and superb food. The views from the hotel are breathtaking, looking up at the Eiger and other major mountains.

From the moment we entered this hotel we were greeted with warmth that should define the hospitality industry. Hotel Gletschergarten is a family run establishment that is entering its 5th generation of business. We were welcomed by a family member and offered a free upgrade to our reservation.
