Gimmelwald is a lovely little village, no cars, no stores. Esthers Guesthouse is perfect: wonderful staff, friendly guests. Bring your own food or buy at the Coop in Muerren (one stop further up the mountain) and cook it in the fully equipped guest kitchen--or get the excellent breakfast.

Winter Wonderland
Our experience at Esther's Guesthouse was beyond perfect during the new year. Tobias and friends where most humble and welcoming and really made us feel comfortable and at home. This location is the best for this area and having access to both Murren and Lautenbrunnen surrounding villages it really was the cherry on top. This place was magical and couldn't have asked for a better experience.

The absolute best and coziest place
This was the coziest spot. I had the best trip of my life in the most beautiful place. I woke up every morning with a view of the mountains—unreal. Cannot recommend enough. The place was kind and accommodating also.

Comfortable Stay
I really enjoyed my stay at this guesthouse. The room, which they upgraded for me, was quite spacious and had a beautiful view of the mountains. The hosts were very welcoming and kind. I used the paid laundry service one night, dropping my clothes off at 8 pm, and woke the following morning to finding my clean, dry clothes sitting just outside my door. The hotel requires a gondola ride to get to, which made it feel remote like an adventure. The kitchen is shared among the guests and had all the cooking tools you could need, also a great coffeemaker. My bathroom was somewhat across from the kitchen, but it was so quiet when I stayed that this was comfortable. It was a wonderful stay overall, and I would happily come back here again.
