The Alpenhof in Stechelberg is situated at the end of the Lauterbrunnen valley. It is a wooden house with pine interior walls, so sound travels easily! The owners are English speaking, though fluent in German also. No TV in the house and shared shower / toilet facilities, these are clean and well maintained. A huge kitchen is available to all guests and gets busy in the evening, so plan meal times accordingly. Again this is kept clean with many huge pots and pans to use if catering for a large party. Guests are responsible for cleaning up their own mess.
The Alpenhof is great value for money in a very expensive area. If you like cheap, clean and friendly this is the place for you. If you like all the mod cons, go to an expensive rip-off hotel. The Alpenhof could easily be renamed the hotel California....you can check out, but you can never leave.
In a nutshell.... Value, Clean, Friendly.
