Stayed at the Alphorn Hotel with my daughter who took up skiing for the first time. Location is excellent!!! - right next to the ski lift and ski school meeting place - main reason for choosing this hotel and not in the village. Let me make this quick and easy;
-Hotel itself is terrific with a nice restaurant downstairs - food very tasty and reasonably priced comparing to the prices in the village.
-Location excellent, if you came to Gstaad to ski otherwise you would be better off in the village, which is 10 minutes walk from the hotel and where the action is (don't expect to much of it though, Gstaad is kind off quiet). My daughter took up skiing for the first time so for us hotel location was perfect!!! I myself wasn't skiing this year - to busy exploring local cigar lounges and sampling on different local and not local beverages :)
-If you are a smoker, cigarets, cigars, pipes or whatever then hotel has a nice and cozy smoking room downstairs where you can enjoy your favorite beverage or a meal if you don't mind the smoke, that's the only place where you are allowed to smoke in the entire hotel.
-Internet? no problem, works great in every room - I need it for work so checked it beforehand.
-Staff extremely friendly so are the owners.
-Ski rental - very conveniently located downstairs - very fast and efficient!
-Taxi to 'downtown' Gstaad - around 10-11 Sf
-Bus/ski bus stop next to the hotel - but then again it's only 10 minutes walk to the village center.
- Great shopping possibilities in the village but pricy but that's why we came to Gstaad in the first place to spend some money, right? Otherwise plenty of good and cheap skiing in Italy or Austria.
-Many celebrities live in Gstaad so be ready to shake some hands or snap photos - I saw few but then again who cares, right?
Over all great vacation, it was my second time in Gstaad, first was back in late 70's so I can't remember much but I'm pretty sure we'll be back in Gstaad next year since my daughter loved it and me 2! Cheers!!!
