“Quiet location, good transport links”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

A lovely hotel with friendly helpful staff. We arrived at 11 am and asked to leave our case and check in later but were able to check in and go straight to the room. The quiet location made for a restful stay. The cold buffet breakfast provided a good choice and there was no pressure to leave.

I only stayed for 1 night. Wished it had been more. Excellent location, very friendly and helpful staff. No complaints at all.
The temparature during the day was 29 degrees C and the 4th floor was ideal.

The rooms are small, but adequately furnished. Don"t plan to spend too much time in the room. Clean however. Breakfast was satisfactory but what sets this hotel apart is the excellent front desk service that go out of their way to get you what you need.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The location was excellent, just a short tram ride from town. If using the tram, you need to buy tickets from the ticket machine located at the tram stop. They only take coins. The trams are very frequent and the hotel is just a few minutes walk once you get off the tram. On arrival we were met by a very friendly and helpful receptionist. We had the family room which was a good size. All the staff that we met at the hotel were so friendly and helpful, in particular one of the waiters and waitresses who went out of their way to explain the menu to us in English and made the whole evening very pleasant by being so chatty and hospitable. We ate in the hotel restaurant two out of the three evenings that we stayed and on both occasions had an excellent meal. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Stopped over at this hotel for 1 night and the room was clean and spacious but the main problem is no Air Conditioning. Luckily, we were on the 4 floor and able to open the windows during the night without too much noise from outside the hotel.

Also the hotel is undergoing quite a lot of refurbishment on the lower floors of the hotel, so it is wise to stay on the upper floors.

Good points: free internet connection and secure car parking
Bad points: no Air Conditioning and about 10 minutes tram drive from the town center

Dear Guest,
Thank you for rating us on TripAdvisor. It is very interesting to hear what people think about our hotel. Luckily the Hotel Alpenblick is situated in a quite area and you can open the windows if it is a little hot. Especially in older hotels an A/ C is not standard, also because real hot days in Switzerland are manageable.
See you back soon when you visit Switzerland, it is our pleasure!
Best regards,

Clean small hotel with good breakfast. The rooms are very simple. Good location for business . Very friendly staff fluent English and French spoken. My only complaint is about the restaurant closed on Suday evening: if you are travelling for business and you get to the hotel late and tired, you don't really want to go outside to have dinner!

Dear Baerli68,
Thank you very much for you comment on Trip Advisor! Referring to the opening hours of our restaurant, because of resources and the targets during the week, the restaurant is closed. But you are absolutely right with your example! We are checking various solutions and are always open minded for any suggestions.
We are looking forward to welcomeing you soon again at Hotel Alpenblick.
Beste regards,

We found the hotel very conveniently located, close to a tram stop and also close to the lovely rose garden. The receptionist was very friendly & helpful and also recommended a lovely restaurant around the corner for dinner.
The room was light, airy & clean - although a bit on the small side, but that wasn't an issue as we only stayed 1 night. In the room was also a desk & chair. The complimentary bottle of water provided came in very handy upon arrival, as it was a hot day. The bed was very comfy, but would've appreciated extra pillows as the ones on the bed was rather small / flat / not supportive enough. The shower cubicle was incredibly small, did bump into the sides quite a few times.
The buffet breakfast had no hot foods on offer, just cold, continental style choices.
Would recommend this hotel for one or two nights, I think the lack of space (room & shower) will become an issue if you stay longer.

Dear guest,
Thank you very much for rating us on TripAdvisor! We are happy, you have had a good time in our hotel and please do not hesitate to contact the front desk, if you need anything for examples an extra pillow, naturally we have some in stock.
We are aware of the space issue, but we have only those possibilities given by the architecture of the house. But I am happy to inform you that we renovate our bathrooms in the near future.
See you back soon at Hotel Alpeblick, hopefully you can enjoy the new bathrooms then!
Best regards,
