    The shutters were loose and made a lot of noise when windy

    Clean, well decorated room, excellent location opposite bus stop which takes you to the gondola.

    Parking is down the street and outside - as would be expected for such a centrally located hotel. And, because we were there before ski season the bar and lounge weren't yet open for business. Can imagine it will be pumping at the right time of year.

    The staff at the hotel were excellent. They gave great attention, spoke perfect English and were very welcoming. The bed was brand new, the room facilities great for the price. Awesome location and the view out of the room superb.

    Basic, budget noisy hotel
    • Leisure trip

    • Economy Double or Twin Room
    • Stayed 2 nights

    Possibly the nosiest hotel I have ever stayed in. Constant banging of doors from the big tour groups that arrived late and left early in the morning, and no sound proofing means that you hear everything from the rooms either side, opposite, above and below. I slept with earplugs and still slept terribly. Sauna was out of action, and with the bad weather, would have been a nice warming treat. Not a relaxing break at all.

    Breakfast room and range on offer at breakfast was by far the best part of the hotel. This was all lovely!

    Located in stunning Engelberg, nestled on a carpet of green between beautiful white-capped mountains, lies Hotel Hohenbeck. A wonderful historic hotel in central Engelberg, and definitely one of the most picturesque. Clean, comfortable, with friendly staff and a great breakfast. What else could one want.

    Hotel is listed as a 3 Star on Booking.com. I visited the Engelberg Tourist Office, where they offer the Hotel, with no official Swiss Tourism classification. It seemed below 3 star. My room had holes in the walls, and needed refurbishment. I had two chairs, both were coming apart and wobbled if I tried to sit on them. Ground floor Bar is noisy.

    Warm welcome from helpful staff. Beautiful old building. Good views from upper floors. Varied Breakfast. 1st floor lounge is inviting.

    Walls were thin and could easily hear our neighbours in the next room as well as people walking on the parquet floor in the room above us but at night time it was very quiet. A room for storing luggage and wet gear would be useful.

    Great location, comfortable bed, clean. Very kind and helpful staff. Tasty 3 course buffet dinner offered for a reasonable price.

    I really liked the relaxed and chilled feeling of the staff and all parts of the hotel. All the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. We immediately felt at home and just wanted to hang out there. The location is perfect. Close to great bars, restaurants and even walking distance to ski resorts, and the bus picks up right outside.
