A lovely hotel to come to after a great drive up through the mountain passes. The weather was crisp and clear on the drive up but, by the time we made it up to the hotel it was shrouded in fog and we could see nothing at all out of our mountain view room! The welcome was warm as was... More

The Grimsel Hospiz Hotel situated at 2000 m altitude and overlooking water reservoir lakes is magnificent. The harsh landscape of the Grimsel pass with granite rock faces worn smooth by glaciers is truly awe inspiring. The Hotel dates from 1928 when the former Hotel was submerged by the rising waters. Redone into a 4* very comfortable place it should not... More

Staff very kind and helpful. A level diner. Cellar should be visited. Hotel and Rooms are clean modern and spacious. A four stars hotel equivalent in France. 10/10 We received a postcard from the hotel on our return to thank us. We have been touched by this attention

We spent a whole day exploring the region around several reservoir dams. The setting if the restaurant is breathtaking, you will be rewarded with an absolutely stunning view. The restaurant is well maintained, the food excellent and the waiters are very friendly and helpful. Whenever you drive towards the Grimsel pass, make sure to stop there!

The hotel has a breathtaking view! Room is cozy and staff friendly. Good breakfast and dinner at the restaurant. Several hikes can be started from the hotel. You can borrow an electrical car and enjoy a test drive in the mountain.

We stayed here in 2014 during a road trip around Europe after driving past the year before on a different trip. Everything about this hotel is amazing, it's location, the rooms, the feel of the place, the staff, and the food in reception. We enjoyed it that much we are heading back during our honeymoon to stay again next week!

Very good hotel in unique surroundings, perched on a rock near a lake high up in the Swiss Alps. Nicely appointed, good size rooms, most of them with beautiful views. Good restaurant with an excellent wine list.

Spending a night in the Grimsel Hospiz in winter is easier said than done. After all there is no road you can take to get there. So instead you are transported by cable car, through tunnels, up some stairs, another cable car and finally a lift. If you happen to undertake this travel in totally foggy weather it gets even...

Perched on top of an artificial peninsula the Hospiz is a luxurious way to marvel at the rugged landscape whilst being made comfortable and welcome. The interior is a modern take on alpine interior design, comfortable, warm and easily reaching its 4* claim. We also had a meal there which was very tasty and beautifully presented by a friendly and... More

Surrounded by water and mountains high up in the Swiss alps this stunning hotel delivered more than we were expecting. We chose the Grimsel Hospiz for its stunning position and useful location as a convenient overnight stop between Italy and Germany. The staff were, without exception, delightful and could not have done more to help. The hotel has been really... More
