This charming hotel is centrally located in town yet quiet because it sits back from the main street. The owner, Annagret, is super friendly and helpful, and is quietly everywhere even helping in the kitchen at breakfast, all to ensure her customers are well taken care of. The rooms are attractive and very comfortable and offer grand views of the...

The Alte Post is in the middle of Grindelwald right opposite the great wall of mountains - including the famous Eiger and Jungfrau - that face the village from the south. The original hotel is on the main road and the ground floor is an attractive, traditional restaurant with an outside terrace - we had two good hearty meals there,...

The staff at this hotel were amazing. I was on a hiking trip and my bags had not showed up yet. The hotel staff was on the job- tracking them down and getting them to me. They tried to make us feel better by bringing us robes and drinks to relax after a long day. The hotel was very nice,...

The rooms were clean and comfortable. Family run business with a nice bar and near town. The restaurant was closed the day we arrived due to a town festival the day before so the owner personally prepared dinner complete with mushrooms she had picked herself that morning in the mountains! A delicious meal with friendly service. A good solid choice...

Room and bathroom were spacious, clean and comfortable. Location was convenient next to the First gondola. Hotel staff was welcoming and accommodating.

My daughter and I stayed at Hotel Alte Poste in September of 2015. It was absolutely perfect.
