“Be sure you know what it costs”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2011

We stayed at the Hotel Alpina during our Haute Route hike. The hostess was quite friendly and helpful, the room lovely, etc. However, she charged more than we were told on our Haute Route plan, and when we asked for a bottle of wine, she brought the most expensive one -- 66 francs. Of course we did not ask the price so it's our fault as well, but after a cold, rainy day, we were just thinking of comfort and not expecting to get ripped off.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask the price of everything!

We stayed one night in hotel Alpina before taking on a mountain climbing tour. From the outside, the hotel looks old (very 1970's), but our surprise was great when entering the hotel: it has been redone 6 years ago, but looks like it was 6 days! Rooms are spacious, have all amenities and are well decorated. More impressive was the food which was the more impressive that it was not expected. On top of it, we sat dining with the snow-covered Grand-Combin was alight by the setting sun and a beautiful full moon was just above the top! Very romantic!
The owners are lovely and warm, the Chef is the owner and his wife is doing the services and everything else, or so it seems.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view on the Grand-Combin, not all have direct views.

We arrived at the Alpina soaking wet after hiking 5 hours in pouring rain. Marlene greeted us warmly taking our wet boots and jackets. She placed the wet boots by the fire in the evening to dry when the guest were gone. Our rooms were nicely appointed and comfortable. We decided to eat dinner at the hotel. What a surprise! One of the top gourmet meals we have ever had. Amazing presentation and flavor. We relaxed in the inviting salon admiring the scenery. If you want a welcoming, cozy relaxing place with wonderful views then the Alpina can not be beat!
