Our experience at the Edelweiss was quite good, with a small exception (described below). The staff were polite and efficient at check-in, though not effusive. Our room was comfortable, clean, and completely up-to-date, with a wonderful view of the mountains (see the view below). The bed was very comfortable, the sheets and towels soft, and the pillows plentiful. Lots of outlets, but bring Swiss adapters. We relaxed for a while in the lobby, and later moved onto the back deck. Staff were polite and unobtrusive, and the atmosphere was very relaxing. And now the caveat. At dinner, we noticed that the servers were a bit disorganized. For example, a table of four behind us received two entrees, and the server returned to the kitchen for two more entrees but then never made it back to that table. Instead, they served entrees to other tables and the table behind us had to call someone over after about 5 minutes of wondering where their missing entrees were. We all shared a laugh about it, and had no further incidents. The food was delicious and plentiful (though after hiking all day I could still have eaten more -- that's just me). The room was very comfortable for sleeping, and quiet (except for a huge storm in the middle of the night). A great night's sleep. Breakfast was the usual European fare, and since it was buffet style it was fast and efficient. Also delicious, with some excellent crusty bread.
