Located right in the centre of Stans next to Dorfplatz, within a short distance from train station offers a good accomodation for reasonable price. The rooms are a bit austere but clean with reasonable comfort for quests (especially with good sleeping quality). The staff during my stay was kind and helpful. The quality of breakfast was good, perhaps the breakfast...

after a hectic week in Paris for a wedding our trip to Stans was ideal for a change of pace. The Engel Hotel was a great place to spend 4 days.It must have been a full 4 minutes walk to the train station from the hotel. The weather was kind to us and the long sunny days were a treat....

This is a strange hotel. The room we had was so bland. White walls and vinyl floor, IKEA cups and bedding with a dull mountain scene picture on the wall. Vinyl flooring throughout makes for a very noisy hotel. I thinks it would be very cold in winter.The bed was very comfortable. There were no curtains except for net/voile type...

This was one of our most cramped rooms – but VERY clean. The TV screen was the smallest we’d had, and no real space to open luggage. The lights are fluorescent, and the room spartan. But the bed was comfortable (not rock hard). There is a lift. The breakfast was OK, they ran out of eggs and the yogurt was...

Lovely hotel with super friendly staff and great attention to details. Our dog received a bone with a ribbon on arrival :-) We also had a lovely meal in the restaurant and a great breakfast. Beds are very comfortable and the area is quite, except for a few cars passing by. We stayed for one night when travelling through to...

We used Hotel Engel as a stop over to Firenze. Stans is a lovely small city with a nice but expensive Bergbahn and great walking trails. Hotel Engel is right in the city center; we were warmly welcomed and given advice on what to do and where to go. The room was spacious and clean( all up to Swiss standards)...

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely village and were happy with the standards of the Hotel. Dinner was average and expensive. Breakfast was served in a dismal conference room and understaffed with just one member trying to keep the buffet table topped up whilst serving coffee etc. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Not sure we would return again...

Willing to spend a saturday night in the region between Trift Bruche trail and Luzern we had a look on Tripadvisor and identified Engel in Dorfplats in Stans. Luzern is terribly expensive and we had no reason - being tired - to stay in town. We noticed good comments and "biker friendly" so although we were not on a bike...
