  • Liked: Staff & service

3 min walking distance to grindelwald grund train station and local bus terminal. Local bus is free if you stay here. Staff was super friendly and helpful. This place was the cheapest stay I could find. Air condition was not so great though.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

In the middle of the building site for the new cable car, smell of stale beer in communal areas and construction site dust outside. Inaccurate room description on Expedia. We took a refund and stayed elsewhere.
