(Only from freezer) The owner react sometimes not so nice and is kind of unfriendly. I would not go again to this hotel. There are many nice hotels in Grindelwald with more attention to...

We had 11 hikers in Switzerland for our 6th annual trip. Grindelwald is speculation and Alex and his wife are wonderful hotel keepers. The location is near the train and the views are great.

Located right in the heart of town and less than 5 minute walk to trains and buses. Beautiful property with unbelievable views and very gracious hosts. I was surprised by how big and nice the room was, since most European lodging seems to be on the small side. I would definitely stay here again.

Owners very helpful with luggage, hiking advice, etc. No AC or fan (also typical) but windows open wide and views are excellent.

Stayed there for three nights. Best staff, best view, best location. For us it was perfect.. Near the railway for Jungfrau and the main streets. Waking up and seeing the Eiger Nordwand is just spectacular. Will defidently be coming back next year.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Hotel Caprice in Grindelwald! Small but beautiful and lovely to the smallest detail. So the Hotel Caprice Grindelwald invites you in its third generation, to stay in one of the 24 cozy single-, double-, or superior-rooms and two apartments. The hotel is centrally located but very quiet. You will reach in a 2 - 3 minute walk the train station, the village center can be reached in about 4-5 minutes. The bus stop from where you can go for free by the local ski bus to all cable cars (Grindelwald-First, Pfingsteggbahn, Maennlichenbahn), is also 2-3 minutes away by foot from the hotel. From the same location, three different mountain bus lines drive to Bussalp (Summer & Winter), to Waldspitz (summer) and the Grosse Scheidegg (summer). Wellness oasis with whirlpool, Finnish sauna and Turkish steam bath After an eventful day, we welcome you in our wellness oasis, where you can give your body the necessary relaxation in the bubbling Wetterhorn whirlpool. Subsequently, recharge your batteries in the Finnish Block sauna, our Turkish steam bath or the infrared cabin Physiotherm or enjoy a wonderful massage. The Hotel Caprice will be your cozy home for a relaxing and restful holiday stay in the middle of Grindelwald. You can take benefit from various advantages at the Hotel Caprice Grindelwald: - Central and quiet Location - Unique view of the world-famous Eiger North Face - Personal service from your host family Regula & Alexander Glarner - Suggestions for your individual hiking tours and excursions - We know the most beautiful ski slopes of the Jungfrau Region - We know the longest sledge run in Europe - Complimentary guest trips with your host Alexander Glarner (snowshoeing in winter and hiking in summer) - Do you prefer a sunrise excursion to the best photo spot - or should it be a full moon walk at 1900 meters above sea level? ... more   less
