“Really good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2011

Easy to find and a nice welcome from the hosts. Plenty of parking on site and only a 3 min walk to the bus stop.
The beds were very comfortable after long days walking. No disturbance for good nights sleep. Rooms were a good size. We had a balcony with great views over the valley to the mountains.
Breakfast is typical continental with meats and cheese, cereals, fruit etc but of good quality. At night you can buy cold beers and wine but no meal is provided as it is a bed & breakfast of course. We ate locally in the village and had decent fresh food every night. Buses run on time so no need to drive and this was no problem for us.
We really like this place and the hosts make a real effort to help you with your holiday. They set a high standard. We wil return next year I am sure.

Сharming chalet in the heart of incredible nature! We had unforgettable evening on balcony with a glass of wine and view on mountain Eiger. It is an earthly paradise! Chris and Katrin were friendly and very helpful to us and have made everything to make us feeling as at home!
We remember you and dream of coming back! Thank you for all!

.On our third trip to Switzerland we discovered this gem, the best Swiss accomodation we have had. The Hosts were amazing, giving us directions, tourist tips, putting on our snow chains (as totaly inexperienced South Africans we were hopeless), they even assisted us with snow clothes, as buying snow gear for a 14month old in South Africa in the heart of summer is impossible.
The rooms were great, the breakfast was awesome, everything was clean yet it maintained that cozy swiss warmth one looks for. The views were outstanding, you look out over Lake Thun and are surrounded by Alps.
The location is so central, close to a great many swiss attractions, yet somehow you feel as if you are tucked away in some tiny little swiss village. Its ideal.
Our family spends many moments longing to return. If you are visiting Switzerland make this stop number one on your list.

We just finished our 4th visit to Alphotel Eiger! That is how much we love this perfect little gem. Chris and Katrin are wonderful hosts; they have a very well behaved little boy. The breakfasts are always awesome with local cheese from their own cow. They always have great recommendations for food and activities. The view is unbelievable. The hotel itself is spotless and tastefully decorated. And I always, always sleep like a baby. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough. We look forward to our 5th visit...and 6th...and 7th...

This was one of the best hotel experiences I have had in recent years, and given that I spend 2 nigths every week staying in hotels this is a serious accolade. The owners are as friendly as everyone else has said. They really make you feel welcome in their home, but without becoming overbearing or ever-present. The room was spacious and clean. The main doors opened out onto a balcony that had unobstructed views across the lake to the mountains. It is hard to descrbe just how breathtaking this view is, and because the hotel faces south, the light changes throughout the day. We had wine from the bar at a very reasonable 4 euro a glass and just sat and watched the sun set. Beatenburg has local restaurants, which were on the basic side and probably a little expensive for what they deliver, but you are here for the location and the view, not the food! Beware of walking along the road, especially at night as the hotel is at one end of town and the road is twisty and dark. Breakfast at the Alphotel is a "continental" buffet, but with high class local cheeses and delicious variety of breads. Overall this place exceeded expectations, but do not go if you are looking for all night activity or indeed anything but tranquility and beauty.

We were quite impressed by the hotel's website, the directions to the hotel were excellent, the drive up the mountain very scenic, but the property and its proprietors Christoph and Katrin exceeded all of our expectations. The view, even on a rainy day, was incredible, the hotel immaculate and beautifully decorated, breakfast excellent, and the community area which was adjacent to the breakfast area was warm and inviting during our two very chilly June days at Alphotel Eiger. Our lake facing room was large, very comfortable and creatively decorated, the bathroom modern, the wireless internet adequate, and the room very well lite so we could actually see to read at night. Our host's recommendations for Beatenberg dining options and what to see and do in the area were spot-on. Breakfast was a special treat highlighted by locally produced butter and cheeses, and during breakfast either Christoph or Katrin were always there and attentive to our needs and because of the rain and cold we tended to linger over breakfast. Parking for our car was convenient to the front door and to our surprise they accepted credit cards. As we live near Heidelberg, Germany and frequently visit Switzerland, we have just found a new favorite place to stay.
