Update on some hotels

Jump to last reply

We are contemplating another visit to Switzerland later this year and there are a couple of hotels we will probably stay in that we have visited before. However, it has been a couple of years since our last visit to Switzerland and even longer since our last visit to a couple of these hotels. So I thought I would ask if anyone has stayed at any of them recently and can give me an up to date review regarding whether they are still up to snuff.

We will fly into Geneva, arriving early afternoon and plan to spend two nights to get over jet-lag and visit a favourite restaurant. We will stay at the Hotel de la Cigogne there.

From Geneva we will take the train to Gstaad for 5 nights at the Palace Hotel. We will be hiking in the surrounding area during that time.

Then we are thinking of heading over to the Bernese Oberland and Hotel Giessbach for perhaps 4 nights. If we can't get a decent room (we won't book anything except the Cigogne ahead) we will go with our backup the Regina Grand in Grindelwald. We will do more hiking in this area. That's our major attraction to Switzerland other than chocolate. ;-)

Last time we stayed in the Regina one night and then hiked from there to the Giessbach with an overnight at the Hotel Faulhorn.

From the Bernese Oberland we will head for Basel for just a night before catching a flight from Basel-Mulhouse to Scotland to visit family. In Basel we will expect to stay in the Les Trois Rois, hopefully with a river view room and enjoy dinner on the patio.

So:
Geneva - Cigogne
Gstaad - Palace
Bernese Oberland - Giessbach or Regina in Grindelwald
Basel- Les Trois Rois.

Anyone have a recent visit to any and comments on how they found their stay?
