Murten is a well preserved small medieval town on the southern shores of Lake Murten. It is a picturesque old town of alleyways and arcades, encircled by an ancient but fully intact town wall that can be walked in its entirety. The Murtenhof & Krone, a hotel with a lot of history, is right in the heart of the town....

We went at a perfect time a year. Booked a normal room but they upgraded us (for no extra charge) to a lake side view. View was spectacular (was a nice sunny evening). The Hotel staff was friendly and spoke English very well. Ate at the hotel's restaurant for dinner. Great choice. We each got fish, and both meals had...

My husband and I arrived with our 16-year-old grandson to find that we had been upgraded not only to a lake view room, but also to Swiss Suite, with a huge terrace overlooking the lake. Needless to say, we were delighted! Ariste, one of the two brother proprietors, then proceeded to personally show us our room and all of the...

We stayed in a roomy suite for a couple nights with a beautiful view of the lake. The location is central and you can step right out your door into the medieval town for shopping and restaurants. There is a Co-op store a 2 minute walk where you can buy water and supplies at normal non-tourist pricing. Also an easy...

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your feedback on Tripadvisor. It's always a good tool to inform other and future clients about our facility's, rooms and cleaning management. And of course to make our services better. 1) Our hotel is near the lake, so in summertime 1 hour before and 1 hour after sunset is not good to open...

I loved my stay in Murten and at this hotel! I wanted to stay in the older rooms section of the hotel and was very pleased (and surprised) with my room as it had a balcony overlooking the lake. The room felt like one that you see on tours of castles, but had a modern bath! It also had a...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback on Tripadvisor, which is really helpful to approve our services. In your case, the minibar (non-use) was a down side experience. This was surely a fault on our side, if you are sure not to have used minibar thats fine :-) Most of clients, unfortunately, do not mention their consumption and leave without...

On a recent, quick trip to Switzerland, (made even quicker by our flights over getting cancelled, delaying our trip by one day!), we had the good fortune to stay at the Hotel Murtenhof & Krone in Murten, Switzerland. It is an amazing hotel in the heart of Murten, just a short 10 minute walk, (but mostly uphill!) from the Train...

The terrace restaurant has fantastic unobstructed views of the lake. The meals are only slightly more expensive than other restaurants in town but quality is much higher. The steak I had here - although on the small side- is probably one of the best steaks I have had. Nice friendly efficient service with a superb view. Totally recommend.

We very much enjoyed our recent stay at this gem of a hotel and dinner in the restaurant. The location is superb, just inside the historical area of charming Murten. The front desk personnel were all exceptional and helpful. Loved the adjoining room off the lobby where you could make coffee or tea during the day. Our room was perfectly...

We stayed two nights at this fine hotel in Murten. Had a nice size room in the old city with a great view of the lake. Convenient location within minutes of the train station. Very good breakfast with lots of variety. Would stay here again without hesitation.

Great location in the old town. Fantastic views of the lake. Friendly and helpful staff. We got one of their suites and was pleasantly surprised. Very modern on the interior.
