Refuge sympa mais très cher

3.15/5.0
Bon lits. Cuisine bien équipée
Devoir faire et de faire des draps comme en colonie, devoir tout payer (parking, billard, appareil a raclette...) en sus alors que le lit est déjà très cher.

4.80/5.0
It was much better than I expected. Train station and Cable car to First was closely located. Room, toilet, shower room was quite clean. Employees were also very kind. The only unsatisfied thing was the temperature of the bedroom. It was little bit chilly.

Worth every penny considering the location and facilities

3.35/5.0
The shared kitchen is very well equipped. The rooms are old but clean with the bare minimum facilities. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The LOCATION!! I don't think you can get such great views right from the hotel at this price anywhere else in Grindelwald.
The rooms could have been a bit better furnished. A bit more variety in the breakfast.

フィルスト行きのロープウェイと駅の中間地点にあるので便利。駅からは歩いて5分くらい。スーパーマーケットがすぐ近くにある。グリンデルワルドの中では宿泊費は安い方。バスの券が貰える(使う機会はなかったけど)。9月下旬だったからか大部屋に外国人と2人きりだったのでうるさくなく部屋が使えた。チェックイン前、チェックアウト後も無料のロッカーが使えるので身軽な状態で街に出れる。スタッフは親切。
シャワールームが狭すぎる。洗面台もシャワールームも、一番使いたい夜の時間帯には1個ずつしか使えないシ- ステムになっており、他のお客さんを待たせてしまった。掃除は行き届いている印象だがトイレは臭い。客が使- える洗濯機はない。

위치와 청결도 , 위치 등등 전반적으로 우수한 곳입니다 - 밥을 해먹을 수 있다는 점도 큰 장점입니다 - 친구끼리 가족끼리 갈경우 강추합니다 직원들도 매우 프렌들리합니다
비오는 날에 머물러서 그런지 약간 꿉꿉한 냄새가 났습니다 조식은 정말 빵과 치즈 햄 정도입니다 ㅋ 커피는 맛있었어요

위치가 역에서 가까웠고 취사시설이 잘 되있었어요! 조식도 괜찮았어요! 숙소 분위기도 좋았습니다
시설이 좀 오래됬고 이층침대지만 사다리가 따로 없는 건 불편했어요ㅠ 그리고 밤에 식당에 있는데 쥐가 지나다녔어요ㅠㅠ

5.00/5.0
Staying here was such a great choice. Location is right in the center walking distance to everything. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was also good.
Other residents in the lodge were very disruptive after quiet hours. Not the staffs fault.

5.00/5.0
The breakfast was super nice, the butter and cheese were from local farming. One of the best butter and cheese Ive ever had. The staff was super friendly who offered early check-in for me. One of the staff, lady Mariel(not sure about the name spelling, sorry) who gave me recommends and suggestions for my daily traveling schedule. I will definitely stay here again next time I visit Grindelwald.
