“Very nice hotel, good view and good food.”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

We got a good deal from booking.com which value for money for a hotel stay in Switzerland. The hotel was location around 10 mins hike from the train station. Situated perfectly in the centre with a good view of the mountain. Room was clean, and well maintained. The hotel also have free parking facility available right in front of the hotel. One really good thing about the place was it's food, it makes us enjoyed our stay in Grindelwald.

Room Tip: Ensure to ask the front facing room.

We recently spent three nights at the Hotel Alpenhof in Grindewald. It is like waking up to a picture post card every morning. The view of the Eiger, from every room, is incredible. The hotel staff was very friendly, and the restaurant was very good as well. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Only downside is that it is a bit of hike up to the hotel from the train station or Main Street. Ample off street parking if driving.

This was the best price quality deal in Grindelwald so far. Smaller and less exclusive, but very friendly staff and perfect with children too. Great view on the Eiger, good food, breakfeast buffet. nice rooms.

I spent my holiday in this hotel and I was really satisfied. The employees were very kind, the room was cleaned and big. The view from the balcony was breathtaking! The food was good (Switzerland specialities), maybe not too cheap (Menu ca. 50 CHF) if you have only the breakfast is included. The only thing I didn't like was the climb to arrive at the hotel from the station, especially after a Ski day or with the baggage.

The hotel is five minutes away from the train station and the walk is fairly steep. It is a family-owned chalet and when we arrived at 8pm the lobby was full of children playing, they had great fun and it seems to be an excellent place to come when you have kids, as they are very well-looked after! This is also a good place for couples, we felt comfortable and the room was spacious with fantastic views. The breakfast was excellent - we arrived a little late but the owner still went to fetch fresh croissants for us, a lovely gesture! The receptionist helped us finding a nice hiking route (in November, a lot is already closed as it is so close to the skiing season). All in all: a very good experience.

You know that feeling when you're looking for a hotel on-line and suddenly there's one considerably cheaper than the others. You have to be suspicious, go trough the photos and hundreds of reviews and compare it against all the other hotels in the list. We all know our budget has the final word and this is how we got to Alpenhof Grindelwald!

In a cold Autumn day we took a train from Interlaken to Grindelwald and there, with ankle deep snow started our walk to the hotel. The signposting was as efficient as a Swiss clock (what were we expecting? we´re in Switzerland!) so finding the hotel was piece of cake! The front façade was a good start, a beautiful wooden chalet right at the foot of an alpine summit. As soon as we walked in we knew that we had chosen well. A friendly receptionist (as Swiss as we are, no offence!) greeted us with a fluent German and then a perfect English and shown us to our room even though it was a bit earlier than the check-in time, which was great! The room? speechless. Big, cosy, well decorated and with a little balcony with the greatest view ever, Eiger and Klein Fiescherhorn right in front of us.

Altogether this was a great hotel, with a great service and over all, a magnificent value for our money!!

I'll be there back soon, I promise.

We enjoyed a full week, half board, at the Alpenhof in Grindelwald. Excellent room, location, and food. Their restaurant is worth the visit even if you are not registered at this hotel. The Alpenhof is very convenient to the train and bus terminals with a short 260 meter walk, up a steep narrow street but only a 31 meter climb. We parked our car in their lot right in front of the hotel. Service was outstanding. This is a very superb base location for exploring the Bernese Oberland.
