We booked quite late for a long weekend in June and this hotel was one of the only available options. For a 2 star hotel it was surprisingly good: clean and comfortable rooms, good breakfast, and friendly staff (they let us in around 2 h ahead of official check in time). It's located towards the outskirts of Kandersteg, and therefore... More

We stayed here for one weekend in February with kids. The hotel is located by the cross country skiing tracks and is perfect for winter sports. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is quite ok. However, the hotel could definitely use a face lift, as it has not probably ever been renovated. Sure, the slovenly atmosphere is in...

We returned to the Alpina for the 3rd time at the end of July. Herr Hari is as friendly & welcoming as ever. We love the simple, clean rooms, the great atmosphere and the food. A highlight was the special menu for Swiss national day on 1st August. We will surely return again.

We stopped off for one night while taking the train from eastern France to Milano and I certainly want to go back for a few days. Run by two very friendly families. The furniture and decor are perhaps thirty years old but have lasted well and it has character. You might not want to go there for a romantic weekend... More

My Family (2 Adults - 2 Children) stayed two nights in the Hotel Alpina. The owner and his family provided us with a wonderful room with a loft for the kids. The room was super clean and the meals were excellent and very reasonably priced. Herr Hari and his wife attended to all of our needs and we would certainly... More

We stopped here in the summer for a night and the owner was welcoming. The rooms are a little small, but this is typical of a Swiss mountain area. The price was a little high, but again, this is typical of Switzerland which is not a cheap country by any means, and is probably more symptomatic of the weak british... More

A friend and I stayed in Hotel Alpina in the 2nd week of Sept, had mostly wonderful weather. The owners were very friendly and helpful, giving advice on hiking trails, etc. and made us feel at home.

A pleasant return visit to this family run hotel towards the edge of the village, but under a 10 minute stroll from the village centre. Quiet with stunning mountain views from the room's balcony. Filling evening meals available when booked in advance. Eat as much as you like continental breakfast. Hotel favoured by hikers and walkers.
