“Amazing views and lively bar.”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

We only stopped for one night but had a double room with shower and the most amazing view of the eiger. The room was clean and bright and timber paneled as you would expect in Switzerland. It has a lively local bar at the back again with great views. It's located slightly out of the centre which we liked as we were away from the large hotels and coaches. I've been visiting grindlewald for years and think the bar is one of the best in town as its a locals one as well. Reasonably priced considering your in switzerland.

Stayed here with a group of 15 friends - mixture of double rooms with/without bathroom and a quad with mezzanine. The owners were flexible and helpful with the booking and the rooms were all great - bright and modern, quiet and very clean with awesome views. Theres a good on-site bar and the atmosphere was lovely.
The food (dinner and breakfast) was just average but filling with reasonable choice - but as the hotel is a little bit out of town and we were tired, this wasn't that important

Room Tip: No-one had any complaints about their room - there's a lovely big terrace on the 2nd floor. The...

First the good, no, the great part. The location and view are stunning. You wake up to the sound of cowbells. Breakfast is really good, and the staff are friendly and helpful. Bedding was clean as was the entire facility including shared bathrooms. Short walk to the nearest local bus stop, local buses are free with accommodations and you also get a discount card which is very handy, given the prices of the lifts and trains in the area. Decent bar/restaurant downstairs if you want a beer after your hike, although in the swing season it's closed Monday and Thursday. And the price was great, about $100 per night

However, the carpet is old and dingy, the walls are the Swiss equivalent of thin wood paneling, and the walls and doors are very thin so you can hear everything. We had a room near the road so it was very noisy from traffic (it's not a major highway by any means, but it's on a hill so the vehicles that do go by are at their noisiest). The pillows, which were real feather, caused both of us to have allergic reactions, so either they have been damp or they were not hypo-allergenic washed feathers (I suspect the latter). The pillows are also rather thin, I doubled mine over and it was still pretty flat.

If you are on a really tight budget and/or are using the room as a sleeping spot only, it's fine like any other clean, modest motel might be.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road.

The best part of this hotel was the view from our window. It was the best for my entire trip in switzerland. The room was comfortable, could have been a bit bigger. Shared bathroom and toilets. Clean facilities. There is a restaurant downstairs, so if you get late getting there you always have the option of eating at the restaurant or in your room. The breakfast was great - everything was good quality! Quite a bit of walk from teh station if you are travelling with luggage, but very convinient if you are driving. The lady at reception spoke nicely, and helped us with all teh information we needed. Highly recommended!

Reviewed 26 November 2010

The Alpenblick Hotel had a reasonable price for Swiss Bed and Breakfasts. We loved our comfortable room, which had a ladder leading into a very large loft. Everything was very clean and well-kept. Tiny bathroom, but adequate for our needs. Great breakfast and service, but unsettling (sexually-explicit) photos on walls in breakfast room. Not recommended for families wanting a pure atmosphere.

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.

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
