Literally. This place is 50' from the edge of a very large cliff. We had originally planned on a September visit but things changed and we had to move our five day stay to June. Roger and the rest were very helpful making this change for us and getting us the room we had originally requested (#21, corner room, great... More

Very clean and great views! Excellent service by the front desk with letting us know the best options and what to do in Murren. Would stay there again. Great breakfest. Recommend getting a room facing the edge of the mountain. Amazing views!

We stayed two nights...and were wishing we'd not made plans to go to France! The Hotel Alpina was spotlessly clean, our view was breathtaking, and the bed was comfortable. Perfectly sited for hiking...and Roger is an incredible resource. Now...on to the food... I have celiac disease. Traveling is fraught with the fear I will be "glutened." Well, the restaurant staff...

Following an Insight tour of Bavaria, Austria, and Switzerland, we spent two days in Lauterbrunnen and two more days in Murren. The hotel Alpina is a great little hotel. There is no lift, but the staff was very happy to help us with our bags. The room had a balcony that looked out over the valley, and the views just... More

We stayed for 3 nights in second half of the May, 2014 in third floor two room apartment. Hotel is very clean, renovated with excellent view. We liked it very much. Our daughter was here 3 times and suggested it to us. I suggest it for everyone.

The Alpina is very nice. Roger is a very fun and friendly host. The view is amazing! Our room was clean and fresh and comfortable. Dinner was excellent. We spent 4 nights and hiked every day. Murren and the Lauterbrunen Valley is from another world. It is so beautiful! Don't miss Tremmelbach falls. We also took tandem paragliding rides. This... More

The hotel has a nice location near the cliff roughly halfway between the main Schilthorn cable car and the train station. I had a corner room with a balcony overlooking the valley, and the view is absolutely amazing. Well worth the extra few francs for the view room, even though I didn't spend much time there. The rooms were clean... More

We spent little at the hotel. We checked in at 1030 and suprised that a room was available so that was great... More

This hotel is reasonably priced for Switzerland and the location is the best in Murren. From the rooms on the valley side you can go out on your balcony and look down 1000's of feet. It is in between the gondola to the Schilthorn and the cog train station. The rooms are basic and could be updated as could the... More
