Hotel Glacier - Heated Whirpools With Alpine PanoramaHotel Glacier  

The Bernese Alps is one of the most beautiful settings you can imagine. Hotel Glacier sits between high mountains, overlooking the incredible 1,800-meter-tall (5,900 ft) north face of rock and ice of the Eiger. It's hard to complain about having a view on the most emblematic sight of the Swiss Alps!

The Swiss Alpine village Grindelwald is a famed winter destination and serves home to Hotel Glacier. A 4-star boutique getaway housed in a log chalet with only 28 rooms and suites. The hotel comes from humble beginnings. First, it used to shelter sheep in its stables and later hosted guests in a simple B&B in its previous life. Finally, in 2018 a chic, architect-designed hotel was unveiled by the young entrepreneur couple, Justine and Jan Pyott.

The hotel retains the warmth and coziness of traditional mountain huts, but it raises the bar in the design department. Modern features like brass decors are richly used to contrast the wooden elements. The restaurant features Grindelwald Glacier-inspired crystal lamps and mountain-shaped patterns on its walls among comfy velvet sofas.

The seasonally changing menu at the restaurant features dishes that use ingredients grown in their gardens and locally sourced fresh produce. In addition, unique food processes make the gastronomical experience special, like fermentation, smoking, or dry-aging. So are you eating vegan, gluten-free, or lactose-free? No problem, says the chef of the restaurant, Robert Steuri.

Hotel Glacier's intimate atmosphere is founded on its calming interiors, hardwood floors, and the sweet glow of its orange lights. The rooms are equipped with retro-style Marshall radios and Coco-Mat natural mattresses, and the beds come with plush headboards with Alpine silhouettes.

If you are so fascinated by Eiger's massive rock face, a dedicated room type, Eigerview, delivers the best view. But it's the Signature room that's the biggest hit. It has a private heated whirlpool overlooking the surrounding Alpine peaks.
