My parents and I have gone to Mürren almost every year for the past nine years. We love the small village, with its cosy chalets, lovely restaurants and wonderful skiing. So, as a result, we got to know many of the people there, which is always a great thing.
Our usual haunt was the Pension Sonnenberg, a wonderful hotel. Probably the best thing about it was the food, cooked by the owner of the pension, the chef Steve Ambiel. At the Sonnenberg we were well catered for. We are vegetarians, and Steve accomodated our needs with delicious vegetarian meals, such as the tofu burger and the vegetarian rösti.
But, after the Sonnenberg changed its management, we looked for a new place to stay. Steve had taken up cooking at the Alpina, so of course, that is where we went.
When we arrived, there was not much snow in Mürren (unusual), and it was warmer than usual. We were completely exhausted from our trip there, and were greeted with a warm welcome from Roger. As we were renting an apartment in Geneva while we were here, we thought that we would go for the cheapest room. But no! The people who had booked the top suite had cancelled, so we got the best room in the hotel WITH WIFI for just 30 francs extra per night.
The views from the rooms are completely magical, facing the majestic Mönch. The restaurant below also has lovely views. Talking of the restaurant, I completely recommend the exquisitely delicious tofu burger, or the spiced up vegie rösti. And, don't forget about the yummy, garlicky Kaiser Fondue! We even got to see the kitchen, hidden down under the hotel.
We had a magnificent experience at this hotel, and will always come back here!
