We booked this hotel as a package with flights for skiing, at a good price via Swiss Travel Company. The hotel was a real find, and we will definitely be back. The managers, Melanie and Urs were very welcoming and helpful, as were all the staff. The room (35) had a fantastic view of the mountains, was very comfortable, and... More

Watch out! The wife of the couple who have managed this hotel for several years ruined our stay. It is understood that hotel rates and the overall cost of travel in Switzerland are higher than in some other countries. That being said, paying close to $200/night for a room with a mountain view and getting one dominated by a set... More

Stayed @ Alpenruh in 2010 & loved it. Urs & Melanie run a great hotel. Rooms very comfortable & balcony views of the Eiger are spectacular. Breakfasts are plentiful & tasty & the evening meals, whilst moderately priced, are very tasty & well presented. Their chateaubriand is fantastic. All the staff could not do enough to make our stay memorable.... More

We stayed in this hotel in August and had an incredible time. The view from our balcony was outstanding, the beds were comfy and the food was some of the best we've ever had! We stayed for a week on half board basis and expected to be tucked away in a corner every night for our evening meal. This was... More

The hotel has superb location facing the Jungfrau, Eiger an Monch peaks. Almost all rooms have balconies with amazing views. Murren itself is incredibly charming. For someone... More

Hotel Alpenruh is a wonderful choice for a convenient, beautiful hotel in Murren. It's located at the end of town, with jaw-dropping views of the Alps, particularly from its restaurant, which offers meals that are competitively priced for Murren, and are delicious. Try the local speciality: rosti. It's the best hash brown potatoes you'll ever taste, with choices of veggies,... More
