I can say the Alpina Hotel is one of my favorite places in Gstaad. I enjoy drinks at terrace, delicious sushi at Megu, the beautiful outdoor and indoor swimming pool or a good massage with Zoe at the spa of Six Senses. But the best moment of my day is when I am at the gym with my favorite trainer Carla, where my family and I go very often to workout and enjoy her good energy, positiveness, enthusiasm and motivation, without her I wouldn’t have not exercise as much nor felt as good and fit, thank you. Looking forward to see all the excellent team back this winter.

Needless to mention that our stay was perfect, this is what you should expect from such a property. What we really enjoyed is this discreet luxury and the cocooning atmosphere that you find in this property. You don't feel like you need to wear your suit to enter the lobby as in "old school" 5 stars. The whole atmosphere that the architects and the interior designers created contributes to it. Having tried the other 5 stars in the area, I must say that the Alpina is the best one and to my humble opinion it is the leading 5-star hotel of Gstaad. For me and my wife it is one of the best we have ever been. Finally, the heart and soul of a hotel is always their staff and I can assure you that this hotel has a beating heart and a soulfulness that is hard to find even in Palaces, our warmest regards and the biggest thank you goes to them. Thank you!

We spent two nights there in July. Everything is absolutely 1st class quality. The staff is extremely professional, very helpful and they really go the extra mile. It's really rare and in comparison we found this high standard of service so far only in Asia. The food in the restaurants is outstanding and the staff very good as well. We ordered the breakfast to the room and there is plenty of choice and the quality here is also great. There is nothing we could point out, that is not up to the highest standard. We highly recommend this hotel and would stay there anytime. Dear Alpina-Team, thank you very much for the excellent stay! :-)

The Alpina offers a great summer getaway in the Swiss mountains and all you would expect from a true five star hotel. Staff was very friendly throughout, nicely equipped rooms and great spa facilities including an outdoor pool. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were also served outside, which is great on nice summer days and appreciated by many particularly in times of Covid-19. The quality of food was generally very good. For us a highlight was the dinner at Megu, which offered excellent Japanese food beyond sushi and sashimi. Breakfast is à la carte due to Covid-19. Was a bit surprised that we were asked to indicate the time and what we wanted for breakfast the evening before even when eating at the restaurant. In the end, we decided to have breakfast in our room, which worked out well and special wishes (e.g. special fruits or egg dishes) were not a problem. For a family with 2 children the most common room option is to book two connecting deluxe rooms. There are larger suites, but these do not offer separate rooms for the children (except the Panorama and Chalet suite, which might not always be available and are at a much higher price level). There is no option to connect a regular suite or junior suite with a room. We enjoyed our stay a lot and will be back.

Dear MonteleoneP, Thank you very much for taking the time and giving us your feedback further to your stay at our hotel. Receiving such a good and detailed feedback from our guests gives us the opportunity to improve our services and to strengthen us. We are delighted to read that you have enjoyed your stay at our hotel and experienced all our outstanding services, from the restaurants, the breakfast to the Six Senses Spa Gstaad. In the current situation, some services had to be changed and adapted to the hygiene and safety measures of the Swiss Federal Office for Public Health. Ensuring the health and protection for both our guests and hosts at the hotel, we chose not to serve a breakfast buffet. In order to optimize our room service, we ask our guests for the time in order to deliver you a fresh start into the day. Depending on the age of the children, the interconnecting deluxe rooms are the best option especially if the children are older, otherwise up to a certain age additional beds in the room or suites are possible. We are looking forward to welcome you again in the future at our hotel. Yours sincerely, Tim Weiland General Manager | The Alpina Gstaad
