Very much enjoyed an end of season weekend in Kandersteg at the Alpina Hotel with family and friends. Rooms are simple but comfortable and clean. The hotel is run as annexe of the Hotel Alfa Soleil (just across the road) where we ate breakfast, dinner and used the bar. Food was excellent and service very friendly / helpful. Kandersteg is...

To get from Switserland to Italy by car in the high season, nothing beats the car train from Kandersteg to Iselle. Hotel Alpina in Kandersteg is the perfect place to stay overnight. Get there by Friday, eat, sleep, have breakfast and take the train on Saturday morning. The hotel is outdated, but clean. Staff is excellent and breakfast is okay....

Under new ownership. Clean, dated, and small rooms which are standard in $witzerland. Just a few minutes walk to the town center. The new management is friendly but isn't very attentive nor helpful. No coffee or tea facilities in the rooms or hotel.

We stayed here for one night on our way through Switzerland and wish we could have stayed longer. Look, you get what you pay for. This is an relatively inexpensive option in a very expensive place. As you'd expect, the rooms are basic, the wifi is only offered in public areas, the decor is a bit tired...but it is run...

I thought I had booked the Hotel Alpina in Murren. When we arrived in Murren the tourist Information people informed me I was one valley away. A couple of short train rides later we arrived in Kandersteg. It was a bit of a walk to the hotel, but we didn't mind as Kandersteg is a very nice town in an...

We booked a room at this hotel and reserved with a credit card. We got lost and called to say we were arriving very late and was told to come in the morning. No one would open the room so late. So we were stuck with no place to stay and got charged a deposit. The woman's was horrible, rude...

I spent several days at the Hotel Alpina. The hotel was clean, comfortable and well situated - near several restaurants and a cable car. Certainly nothing fancy, but the price and atmosphere was perfect. The inn keepers were very warm, wonderful people. I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely return.

My son and I stayed here 6/4/15-6/5/15. I think this is a family owned hotel but they were very friendly and some of the nicest people you would want to meet. The hotel isn't a bad hotel at all for the price with great views of the alps. The breakfast is included with the hotel. We made it to breakfast...

If you are looking for an affordable place to stay in Kandersteg, I'm not sure you can beat the Alpina Hotel, that's why we picked it. We found the shared spaces and the rooms to be generally run down. Maybe there are rooms that have been updated, but ours was just uninspiring. What was really odd about our room was...
