“Comfortable hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2011

Comfortable hotel, pleasant room with balcony and nice bathroom. Good breakfast. Central position, close to busses and railway station. Staff generally very friendly and helpful. Would stay in this hotel again if in the area.

The Alpin Sherpa is located in the non-touristy Alpine town of Meiringen, Switzerland. Meiringen is well-situated for visiting by rail, bus or car such picturesque areas as the Interlaken region, Lucerne, Zermatt and Grindelwald. The ever-efficient Swiss railroad system works like a charm out of Meiringen. The hotel staff, led by manager Alexander Dalucas, is most capable, personable and accommodating. While the Alpin Sherpa lacks some of the amenities of, say, American hotels, it is clean, cozy, has wi-fi, sauna and spa, and the food is quite good. It could use a laundry service and better room lighting. It has no AC but, hey, you're in the Alps. Open the window. My wife and I, part of a group of 16 friends, had a wonderful two-week stay. We would definitely stay there again!

We were pretty disappointed. The rooms are spacious and clean, but that's about it. We did not like the food at all, it consisted of undercooked meat or canned vegetables. We were unfortunate enough to stay at the hotel in the last week of December. This week there was the strange tradition of the villagers walking down the streets in a parade all evening AND night with drums and cow bells. The noice was nerve-wrecking! And since half of the population was participating in the parade, the hotel was understaffed and we had to wait two hours for our dinner (with 4 children under the age of 6). Ridiculous!
The disco/club underneath the hotel is noisy, we could hear the beat all night long.
If you want to go skiing, you can take the bus, which is ok. The ski-area is extremely busy in this time of year. It would take us up to an hour an a half to get to and from the ski-area, so waiting in line for almost three hours a day is no picnic. We won't be back there ever again.

Stayed December 2008

A nice hotel situated in the valley of Switzerland, which is so much amazing to a person living in the city. Nice environment, nice deco, and most importantly, nice staff.

The facilities provided may not be closely adequate to the fast-growing world, BUT it is enough and comprehensive. Furniture is clean and tidy in the guest room and dining area. What's more is the helpful staff. They cooked, tidy-up and served all-round.

It must be a good memory of staying there!
