We liked Hotel Engel. It is near the Gothard tunnel on the north south route and thus a good stopover point. Pleasant staff, good breakfast, lovely views and we even managed to take a lovely long walk down from the mountain after taking a cable uphill.
Outstandingly comfortable and well run hotel at an economic rate.
Nice hotel on thw way to Italy. The hotel is quit old but the rooms have been updated, ask for the comfortroom. Staff are very nice!
Hotel Engel is a small hotel, with a definite family feel to it. Staff are friendly, the room was just refurnished with a new bathroom. The food in the restaurant was excellent, the breakfast more than adequate to start a days hiking. The location is very pratical, the stop for the Post bus is across the road, there are 2 telecabins starting within 500m from the hotel.
smoking is allowed in the bar.
Good value for money. Friendly staff. Very nice location in a peaceful corner of Switzerland.
Very good restaurant, hearty food, good choice of wine and beer. Clean, quiet place out of the city, good location near to cable cars and hiking trails and other local attractions. Not all staff speak English, but the place seems to cater to English-speaking clientell; no problems encountered when checking in, ordering food, etc., checking out.
Clean, comfortable hotel. Friendly staff. Restaurant offered a wide range of dishes. I intend to stay here again. Would advise travelling there by car as it seems to be halfway up a mountainside.
Room needs a little extra lighting. Breakfast was sufficient, but there is not the choice you might expect from the "hearty breakfast buffet" indicated on your site.
The English speaking member of staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful.Good breakfast but bed was only about 6 feet long and room above the bar seemed to smell alittle of tobacco smoke.Not a lot in Emmetten but you can catch a ferry to all points on Lake Luzern from Beckenried close by. Emmetten is just off the motorway and you can reach Luzern by car in about 20 minutes. It's also a handy spot if you're planning to drive north for Mount Rigi or south to Andermatt and Locarno etc
Excellent location for the skiing and visiting Lucern etc, very friendly staff
We stayed there in what turned out to be the low season so there were not many other guests but I would be a bit worried about the noise because you could hear the guests that were there very easy in the next rooms after 11.00pm.
When traveling through Switzerland to Italy we would recommend this hotel to stay the night for a stopover. The hotel is across the groceryshop and busstation with enough space for parking. The swiss hospitality was as expected: friendly. Emmetten itself is very peaceful.
Even though the cafe was the only area where smoking was permitted, we could smell the smoke in our room. We had a room directly above the cafe, but we didn't experienced any noise.
great location for hiking, nice staff.
quite oldish style
Convenient as a stopover and very quiet.
The bar area was very smoky as lots of people smoking and we were very pleased that it was warm enough for us to eat outside. The reverse happens in the uk with absolutely no smoking The hotel was under renovation but luckily it was the weekend and so we were not affected.
