My wife and I had planned a Christmas in the Alps for the last 2-3 years for our three sons and their families (15 of us). Our travel agent recommended Engelberg (out of 4 total places), and specifically The Alpenclub. We had concerns as to whether this would be the "special place" we wanted for our Alps Christmas---- but our... More

Stayed here while skiing with 2 friends in January. Very good value. Nice rooms, good food and friendly service. The decor is what I would call alpine chic. The bar and restaurant have a lot of wood. The food was excellent. Would happily return.

We loved the authentic Swiss wooden construction of this place. We had the Steinberg room which well fitted out in traditional Swiss style. All the staff were really h.lpful and one of them took us by car to the station which was much appreciated. We had the best fondue ever for us with 3 types of meat and 12 or... More

Smiles smiles and only great service! Thank you AlpenClub team for making our stay a good one. The Alpenclub offers bar, restaurant and lodging set in the central Alps region/decor. The magnificent Engelberg region with its high peaks and many rivers make it an ideal location in the summer for hiking and also for taking the gondolas to the top... More

Love everything about this place. Very cozy, and the staffs were all very friendly and helpful. Room was just as I imagined a ski chalet would be, comfortable, warm, and charming. We tried the cheese fondue restaurant and it was great!

Clean, charming, friendly staff... Great stay Private parking place (payable) Too bad there was no sauna in the hotel When you come for a ski-vacation, you always have to take the ski-bus or your own car... far away from the lifts

Pleasant but unassuming exterior masks a delightful little hotel in Engelberg: traditional wooden finishes, warm and friendly welcome, and a restaurant that makes some of the best cheese fondue I've had. Small, cosy bar is perfect for a drink before dinner, and there are several other bars and restaurants a short stroll from the Alpenclub; rooms have decent space, and... More

This place is better known for its restaurant (nice but noisy), and only has about 10 rooms (or less). First, and important fact: the jacuzzi that is displaced on its website is NOT available to guests, as it is part of the pne and pnly suite in the hotel. Quite a disappointment for our group of freidms, who oicked the... More

Absolutely gorgeous little hotel with rustic feel yet with all modern amenities. Very cosy rooms with lovely small bathrooms and free gourmet coffee. Great fireplace area in lobby, perfect for hot drinks after a day in the snow. Very good restaurant both for dinner and breakfast, and the kindest and most friendly staff. Not cheap but good value.
