Succumb to the temptation of a family-run hotel nestling in the heart of the Fribourg Pre-Alps. 


The Romantik Hotel l'Etoile

Welcome to the Romantik Hôtel de L’Etoile! Treat yourself to an enjoyable stay in Charmey, an authentic village in the Gruyère district in the middle of the Canton of Fribourg. With panoramic views over the Pre-Alps, our three-star hotel welcomes you to a friendly setting whose hallmarks are tradition and hospitality.

Alexandra Ziörjen took over the hotel in 2011. Today, they are delighted to welcome you to a hotel with a warm, family atmosphere. Discover a hotel whose veins run with the spirit of the mountain, a fully-renovated elegant 17th building that has lost none of its yesteryear character.

Our three-star hotel has 8 rooms and one family Suiite. You will fall for the charm of their Alpine chalet look. The typically sober and sophisticated wood-panelled decor conjures up images of snow-capped peaks.

The Hôtel de L’Etoile enjoys a central location in the village of Charmey and represents the ideal base for a sightseeing holiday. The hotel is only 300 metres from a cable car providing access to ski pistes and hiking trails. Whether in the summer or winter, there is no shortage of activities!

Located between Bern and Lausanne, the hotel-restaurant is also the perfect venue for business trips. Our hotel features fully-equipped seminar rooms benefiting from natural daylight. Treat your teams to a bespoke service in an unspoilt natural environment.

The Ziörjen family will be delighted to welcome you and share their love of the region. In turn, discover a hotel that will put the fun and relaxation into your holiday.


L’Etoile is a gateway to unbridled gastronomic pleasure. In our Restaurant we offers refined dishes showcasing fresh and seasonal produce. While enjoying the typical setting, try such local specialities as a traditional fondue or a vacherin cheese quiche.

Our hotel is also ready to host all your private and professional events. You can count on our chef to fine-tune the menu to suit your specific requirements. Feel free to contact us for further information or to make a booking.
