“Good value - you get what you pay for”
Reviewed 22 October 2010

This hotel was decent, and affordable in a town that's really, really expensive. That being said, there was nothing spectacular about it, except the view, of course, which was great (but that's probably true of any room in Grindelwald).

We had a shared shower/bathroom, which was fine because there was hardly anyone there. I would probably be annoyed, though, if I was there during ski season and had to wait to shower our use the bathroom, and there seemed to be only 2 of each in our section of the hotel (for probably at least 6 double occupancy rooms). The shower had intense, almost scary water pressure. Our "double" bed was really just two single beds pushed together, but this seemed to be the trend all throughout Switzerland.

This is a great place for a reasonable comfortable stay. I was a part of a small group with Cloudbase Paragliding (Wilderness South Africa) that runs tours here every year (I guess they come back for a reason)... I opted for a double room without a private WC but this actually worked very well as there was a sink and a mirror. I never had to wait for the shower (that was very clean and dry) or the WC... oh, the beds are VERY comfy and the pillows were nice too. Fresh towels every day – I think this is rated 3 stars but the cleanest and most comfortable I’ve stated in (US or abroad).

The food is very good and I really enjoyed dinners. Breakfast is cereals, bread & cheese etc so if you are looking for a hot breakfast, you may be disappointed.. It was very quiet and dog friendly - there were several in residence although you never heard them.

The buses stop just up the road or you can walk (about 15 mins from the train station). I was a bit daunted as it takes 2 changes on the train to get to Grindelwald from Zurich but it was very easy and SO worth it. Eddie and his wife are very accommodating and I am looking forward to staying again next year.

We chose the Alpenblick simply because it was the first hotel we encountered in Grindelwald as we came off the hiking trail exhausted. We got a room on the third floor that appeared to be brand-new. The room was large (for the area), very clean, and had a superior bathroom (one of the nicest we encountered in Switzerland). The price was OK (could have been better especially since we appeared to be the only ones staying at the hotel). Breakfast was OK (we had better) except for the flies everywhere. Good bar with a 2-for-1 deal one night for happy hour. Super-nice terrace and balcony (see cons though). The cons that keep the hotel from getting a better rating are the pasture next door (cow odor floating in the window at night), the price, the window which due to its position next to the easily-accessible balcony couldn't be kept open for security concerns, and the distance from town (quite a walk getting back).

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The hotel alpenblick is located in one of the most breathtaking valleys of the world, and is worth a visit in winter or summer time. In summer the hotel is the starting point for hike and bike trips in the wonderful mountains of Grindelwald. The bus stop is located in front of the hotel, so you can reach all the cable cars easily without walking. On our nice terrace, you can get a drink and enjoy the mountains after a hard day spent in the nature. In winter the ski slopes end directly in front of the hotel. With the skibus, which stops in front of the main door, you can reach easily all cable cars. The hotel Alpenblick is located at the end of the village, and not out of it. The village centre is about 10 minutes or 1 kilometre away. ... more   less
