Where to stay in Mürren in September

My husband & I want to stay in Mürren for 3 nights in September (the 2nd week of the month). Any recommendations for under 225 CHF/night? Thanks!

To answer your question, people will have to look up prices for the hotels they know. How about you do some research on booking.com to find hotels in that price range, and then come back and ask for opinions on the ones you find. There won’t be many, unless you want to share a bathroom.

I have Hotel Edelweiss booked for June 2024. When I booked back in June 2023, the price was 235 CHF a night for the panorama double room. I have found you tend to get the lowest prices by booking about a year in advance.

I also have the Hotel Schonegg booked in Wengen. That room, a small queen, is 166 CHF a night. So, you might want to look in Wengen too. I couldn’t decide between the two, which is why I’m staying in both locations. :)

Good luck!!

My husband just surprised me with this trip to celebrate our 20th anniversary in September so I don’t have the luxury of reserving a room a year in advance. I think we’re looking at the Sports Chalet. It was one of the “affordable” options. I have been reading tons of reviews and we risk the chance of there being 50 screaming children staying there at the same time we are. I know it’s bare bones accommodation, but to be in Mürren again (We took a day trip 10 years ago) is a dream come true especially to play tennis on those clay courts. We do want our own bathroom. That there is no TV, oh well, we can deal with that! Hotel Regina had similar pricing but the reviews were really negative. We want to spend three nights so we get two full days. The problem with the day trip to Mürren from Geneva in 2014 meant only a few hours there. Not this September.

There aren't going to be a bunch of screaming kids at the Sports Center. Yes, there are people there enjoying the amenities, playing soccer outside, etc. but we live right next to it and people are very respectful and in general relaxed there. I wouldn't worry about it. Enjoy your trip!

Actually they are talking about the Sportchalet hotel down by the tennis courts, one of the more economical hotels in Mürren. Not the Sportzentrum. We stayed in an apartment above the Sportzentrum last September and yes, it was fine.

But the reviews on booking.com of the Sportchalet are talking about mobs of noisy children.

Did you try Eiger Guesthouse?

Hi Continental, we’ve stayed at the Hotel Alpenruh several times. Nice, clean rooms and an excellent breakfast buffet. Room prices are near your budget. Also check out the Hotel Jungfrau. We haven’t stayed there in a while but it was very nice.

Oops, thanks for the correction @Lola - I read too quickly and misread :)

Thank you so much everybody. I’m going to contact the Hotel Alpenblick, the Eiger Guesthouse, the Hotel Alpenruh.

You might also check the Hotel Alpina--I think it might be close to your price.

We will be staying at the Hotel Alpenblick in Sept. In 2019, we stayed there and were very satisfied.

Update: I secured a reservation at the Eiger Guesthouse! Thank you, everybody for the suggestions. One of the things I did was send emails to innkeepers even when I didn’t see availability of a room with a private bathroom on their respective websites. Lola, you in a way gave me that idea when you asked if I had looked at Eiger Guesthouse. I had looked at it and really wanted to stay there. So I decided to send an email (along with 2 other places) and they emailed me an offer a few hours later that fits my budget! That right there stunned me! My husband and I are tickled pink.

I am glad that worked out for you.

If you are looking for something a bit more upscale than the Eiger Guesthouse restaurant for your celebratory evening, I suggest the Hotel Eiger next door, especially if you want to dine outside with a view. Their balcony terrace is much nicer (and more romantic) than the Eiger Guesthouse outside seating, which is right on the street across from the train station. And their little Tächi Bar is fun for a pre-dinner cocktail or after-dinner drink should you be so inclined.
