This small, 20-room hotel at the beginning of Engelberg's pedestrian street combines a touch of Nordic style (the owners are Swedish) with Swiss warmth and hospitality. The rooms are simple and spare, though still cozy with wood paneling and details. The location is close to perfect if you want to park your car and forget about or if you are arriving by train—shops are nearby and there's a free bus to the ski lifts. The hotel also has a sauna and serves generous, delicious breakfasts, included in the room rates. Engelberg hotels can be expensive, and the Spannort is arguably the best value in town.
