Actually, I pulled the Alpina out of a hat -- and was concerned about noise as it's location is conveniently near the train station; I couldn't have been more wrong! Three of us stayed there for four nights so as to enjoy the hiking which Grindelwald affords. We loved the place, and the owners -- Regula & Thomas Wolf-Stucki --... More

The room was OK/adequate but I/we have a couple suggestions: 1) Buy drapes that are wide enough to cover the window. Ours were a good 2 feet too small. 2)Check the two soap dispensers in the bath daily. After my husband took a shower on Day 1 of a two day stay he told the desk that there was no... More

We enjoyed our short stay at Alpina. The location is outstanding with magnificent views, close to the train station and in the center if the village. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The breakfast ample and good. The room comfortable. The entire area is picture postcard perfect, no matter where you look. Many nature hikes, cable cars, and mountains to... More

The hotel is very near to train station, less than 2 minutes walk. Room is spacious and very clean, and have a very good view of the mountain. Price is very reasonable and very worth to pay for a room with mountain view. Highly recommended.

We stayed elsewhere but decided to take the advice of some locals and booked a table in the Alpina's restaurant - and we're glad we did. We went with friends and truly enjoyed the evening. Hotel guests dine in an adjacent dining room whose decor has been more recently updated and was distinctly more "gemütlich" than the larger 80's era... More

We began the year with 4 nights at this wonderful hotel. The hotel is built in a very charming style and had lovely Christmas decorations. The location is great, just a few minutes from Grindelwald station where you can take trains and buses for your ski, sledging or walking trips. The center with restaurants, shops and supermarkets is also just... More

Great location for transport to ski areas, just situated above the station so quiet. Lovely rooms, clean and fantastic views of the Eiger, Monch, Jungfrau looking towards Kleine Scheidegg. Thomas, his family and staff do a great job of looking after guests and the food is excellent. Have tried various hotels in Grindelwald over the years.....this is one of the... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the hotel. There were a few surprises when we reached. First, it was barely 5 minutes away from the rail station. We knew it was near but didn't think it was that close.Second, it was up slope. We have 2 old folks with us. Despite it wasn't too difficult, the slope can be rather... More

This hotel is expensive (as are others in this area, particularly with a view of the Eiger), so just decide that you are going to spend the money or stay someplace else. The owner (Thomas) is just wonderful, as are everyone we met while staying there. The rooms are clean and very nice. The meals are good (a previous reviewer... More

We stayed for a very last minute winter holiday over new year. The hotel is well located. Very close to the railway and bus stations. There is ample parking behind the hotel. If you are a good skier you can ski down to within about 50m of the hotel from Grindelwald Fitprst following a yellow run down the mountain. The... More
