“Best accommodation in Murren.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

We have stayed at the Eiger guesthouse several times, both in the winter and in the summer and it gets better every time we visit. Our most recent stay was this February with our 2 sons and another family. Ema and her staff were all very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us for the whole of our stay. The guesthouse is very conveniently situated opposite the little train station with fantastic views of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. Although the hotel is old the rooms have all been renovated to the highest standard and are all very nicely decorated, extremely clean and really comfortable. We decided to have the half board option which proved to be a wise decision as the meals were fantastic, the guesthouse definitley has the best chef in the village! We spent most of our evenings in the guesthouse, the games room being very popular with our 2 sons who enjoyed playing pool with other guests and the locals. You get free use of the sports centre but we did not make use of it this time. We have stayed in other hotels in Murren but the guesthouse is by far our favourite and we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: Rooms with balcony at the front of the hotel have fantastic views across the mountains.

First of all I would like to apologize for writing a review so late since I visited this place in August 2011. However, every time I think of Murren and this amazing guest house I just smile and feel so nostalgic! We had planned to visit every nook and corner of Switzerland and no doubt, I would call this place the best of what I have experienced. To beging with, Eiger Guest house has an excellent location. You just come out of the Murren train station and just on the opposite side is the guest house welcoming you!Just to mention, the train ride was a wonderful experience. If you come to Murren via cable car, then the guest house is a 10 min walking distance. Murren is such a wonderful place that you are sure to enjoy every minute of this walk. However, if you have heavy luggage, it is better to take a train from Lauterbrunnen.
We received a warm welcome at Eiger guest house.We had reached there early and our room was not yet ready. We were asked to wait at the cosy lobby area. It was raining and quite cold. I enjoyed a cup of cappuccino.
We had booked the romantic room at the top floor. Though it was difficult to carry our suitcases upto the top floor but on entering the room we understood it is worth every pain.I am attaching a picture of the room that I took immediately.
We had a very pleasant stay at the Eiger Guesthouse.Apart from the excellent location, they have good service,clean rooms,friendly staff and free wifi.The host was very friendly and guided us in many ways to enjoy the beauty of the Alps.Next day we had a nice breakfast an I fell in love with their hot chocolate.The day we left, it was very early in the morning but the host was kind enough to serve us with tea.
It has been a memorable stay and if ever I visit Murren again, I would surely stay at Eiger Guesthouse.

This was the third stay for our family at the Eiger Guesthouse, in what has become an annual visit to Mürren.

The Eiger Guesthouse offers clean rooms, comfortable beds, modern plumbing with plenty of hot water, and free Wifi. The staff are friendly and accommodating, for both adults and children. Ema and her staff do a great job of making everyone feel welcome here.

The sports centre—which includes an indoor swimming pool and skating rink—is close by and free for hotel guests.

Murren is a beautiful town and this is a terrific hotel, well worth a visit.

We have just had our first stay at the Eiger Guest House, and what a stay! The hotel maybe rated a 2 star but there is nothing really 2 star about the Eiger Guesthouse - Everything was fantastic, the staff, the room, the cleanliness, the food, and the service. It completely exceeded our expectations. We are planning our next visit there next year.
