This was our first hotel on our walking trip. It is located on the main road, right at the entrance of the village, which is not so big at all. In the reception they had a large selection of brochures about the area.The room was rather small, but had what we needed, the bed too soft for me. A nice...

We stayed at the Alpina this summer having stayed here previously with our children in winter. We were not disappointed - the owners run a wonderfully friendly and welcoming hotel, the food is great and the highlight of the week is the Farmers' Buffet on Thursday night which includes traditional music, playing the spoons (!) and occasionally even broomsticks. Rooms...

We booked the Hotel Alpina through the hostel.world website when we were touring Europe and got a great price. The hotel is only 7-10 minute walk (at the most) from the train station, and is such a pretty log cabin style building! The owners are really lovely, Hermann was a great host, full of local knowledge. Great view from the...

The Alpina was great for our family of 4. We had a room with a loft, and the kids went up a ladder to the loft. It made me a little nervous for the kids to be up there (ages 10 and 13), even though there was a railing, but they were fine. The room was very clean and simple,...

We can echo the compliments of the previous reviews. This is a delightful family-run hotel. The food is excellent, with a dinner that is "silver service". All the staff speak good english, in fact their language skills were amazing at dinner, as they switched language as necessary between each of the diners!

We spent 4 days at the Alpina in March 2007 and were very pleased with the room and service. As stated in an earlier review, this is a 2 star hotel, so don't expect a hot tub or pool, but the rooms are clean and nice and the hospitality of the owners is unsurpassed. We took the half-board option and...

We have just returned from a week's skiing in Kandersteg, booked through Kuoni. We stayed in a superior family room which had a double bed and two single beds in a separate mezanine floor which the kids were very excited about. The hotel is 2-star so doesn't have those additional luxuries like a swimming pool and spa, but it has...
