“central and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2010

We recently stayed two nights at the Alpina, a centrally situated hotel above the main street in Grindelwald. We had originally reserved at the Hotel Bodmi but cancelled as this latter place was way too far from the town. Hotel Alpina provided a basic room with comfortable beds, good plumbing, and pleasant hosts. As the hotel is mid to large in size, it sometimes accommodates groups. If you this hotel ,try for a room with a view. Some rooms may need a fan during a hot spell in the Summer.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2009

I am highly recommending this hotel for those that want comfort, cleanliness and friendly staff for their hotel experience. The hotel appears to be family owned and in every aspect runs like clockwork. Set high from the main street in town, the view looks out to the Eiger is just stunning. The rooms are extremely comfortable and large in comparison with some other hotels we have stayed in. The restaurant food is more than wonderful, it is amazing. The Chef should be an International celebrity because he is so wonderfully gifted and creative with his craft . His wife is the waitress and was pleasant, cordial and efficient. The meals are very generous and delicious. We ate all 3 nights we were there because I doubt we could have eaten any better.
The hotel is in Grindelwald just up from the train station and the bus station. So convenient in every way.
The staff were very friendly and informative with local information and efficient.
There is only one downside. The WIFI and internet access was not working for the entire 3 days we were there which was a shame.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2009

220 CHF for a double room - including: no view (north side), mold on the floor in the bath room, dripping water taps (no chance to close it for women, very hard to do so for man), all-the-time refilling toilet basin - which is very annoying and noisy); room was extremly unromantic and old; breakfast below average; no "bircher muessli" is a no-go in Switzerland! however, staff was friendly - however a bit slow; location is very central
