We were travelling by motorbike and were provided with secure undercover parking which for us was important. We enjoyed an excellent meal in the restaurant where staff are in traditional dress and the traditional breakfast was good and varied. The additional facilities of a sauna & steam room were a bonus. The rooms are large and comfortable with nicely equipped... More

When we first arrived there was no one at the desk and we had some trouble getting help. It turned out that she was helping serve lunch in the restaurant. We ate in the restaurant twice. The food was good, but not wonderful. Breakfasts offered a variety and were also good. The hotel is situated up a side street, but... More

Visiting from the USA we met with local friends who recommended the Alpbach for lunch. We were not impressed. The kitchen managed to serve a tough "lamb" filet with a dry stringy-cheese "risotto" concoction. We found it pretty amazing that this hotel was awarded with the Gilde Etablierter Schweizer Gastronomen. The service was excellent and friendly, though.

Stayed here for a week with son daughter and son in law for hiking in the alps. Booked through Sherpa travel tours, who were very helpful. Rooms, hotel, whole town of Meiringen were clean and well kept. We had two vegans and a vegetarian in our group. The hotel accommodated us in the most excellent manor, but be sure to... More

The hotel is clean, rooms neat and bathrooms are adequate. The manager is quite indifferent and rude. Our group had purchased wine outside the hotel. We asked for a "set up" for the wine. The waitress said she would check with the manager, and returned in a few minutes with six glasses and ice. Imagine our surprise when we were... More

We had a great time at the Alpbach. It couldn't have suited our needs better. We stayed about a week and the proximity to the Ecole d'Humanite, Bernhard Fahner's shops, Castor and Pollux, were great. We the nearby lift to Planplatte and Kaiserstadt to hike, eat at Weber's in Reuti and visit with friends. The owners were always cordial and... More

My fiancée and I stayed three nights at the Alpbach. It's run by the Gerbers, two friendly but somewhat opaque persons. When we arrived at the Meiringen station, Theres came to pick us up in the hotel van; her husband drove us back at the end of our stay; call ahead for this free service. The hotel has a childish...
