This is a beautiful, spacious apartment with high quality fittings and a very well equipped kitchen, including a Nespresso machine, a teapot, microwave and dishwasher. A sieve would have been a useful addition. Dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid were provided, also oil, salt & pepper, stock cubes and some spices in a drawer. There is a full length window with a door leading out to the balcony which is furnished to eat out or relax on (or dry the clothes) if you can tear your eyes away from the view which includes the north face of the Eiger. We enjoyed watching the train go up to Jungfraujoch and listening to the river and distant cow bells. The washing machine in the basement was easy to operate for 2CHF. The property manager, 'D' was most helpful and informative and gave us great advice about Grindelwald.
There were very few downsides to this accommodation but I would say we found the foam mattress on the double bed very hot to lie on as the mattress cover was rubberised. We would have been glad of a cotton or a wicking layer under the sheet. The apartment is up 3 flights of stairs with no elevator and the 6 minute walk to the train station and the Co-op supermarket is up a steep hill. We didn't find that an issue, but it might be for anyone with mobility, heart or breathing problems. At the very end of our stay, the adjoining apartment was occupied by people who smoked on their balcony, making it less pleasant to sit out on ours, but that was just unfortunate for us and no reflection on this excellent holiday property. We loved it and hope we can remember the view for a long time.
