Hotel Alpina -Grimentz
Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Grimentz
Reviewed 21 November 2017

We went to Grimentz for the first skiing day of the season and stayed at the Hotel Alpina right below the main lifts to the ski slopes. The welcome we got from the Staff, particularly the manager Franck, was amazing and so friendly. The hotel has 32 rooms typically in Alpine style, very cosy. The restaurant was superb, top quality cuisine at a reasonably price & very well presented, the wine list was also excellent. We will be back.

We stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Alpina during hike of the Haute Route. We took a rest day here and enjoyed 2 lovely night stays. It was well located. The hotel apparently was recently purchased and is under going renovations, but despite that it was one of our favourite places we stayed at. The staff was friendly and helpful, many spoke english. The rooms were clean, comfortable, well furnished, and safe. We had a lovely balcony with a view of the mountains. We ate both nights at the restaurant and the meals were outstanding. They must keep this chef. We had the best meals of our entire trip at this hotel restaurant. Breakfast was also delicious. Large variety of selection. Delicious coffee. Our only complaint is the smoking allowed on the patio and balconies which is standard everywhere in Europe but not what we are used to in Western Canada. We hope we come back and spend an entire week here. There are so many places to hike and so much skiing! We highly recommend this hotel.

Great location by the bottom of the Bendolla gondola. When its sunny great to sit outside. Service is friendly. Food is fine and after a morning on the slopes it hits the spot, just remember you are in Switzerland so nothing is really ever great value.

In my opinion, the highlight of this restaurant is the fact that it's open all day long. Finding a place to eat in Grimentz in low-season after 20:00 hours in the evening can be difficult. We arrived in Grimentz from our 1-day trip to Gronergrat pretty late, and we had no idea if we can find some place to eat. Our hotel's restaurant (Cristal) was close in that day so we were out of options. The supermarket was also close at that time so we were very lucky to find this restaurant open.
We chose pasta and some local traditional dish, I don't remember the name, but it's some kind of hamburger with bacon embedded in local cheese and baked in a clay pot. Very very tasty, we ate this two days in a row.
The staff young and polite, also provided some fruits syrup for our son, free of charge.
The minus could be the prices, but this is Switzerland, can't complain about it too much, we know it from the start.

PS: in attention of moderators: this restaurant should have its own topic on GRIMENTZ RESTAURANTS category. Otherwise people will keep posting restaurant experiences in this hotel's section.

We were staying in an excellent apartment for skiing in this beautiful location and had dinner here on our last night.
We were a party of 6 including 2 children on 9 and 6. The service by the young staff was excellent and the food for both adults and children perfect. The tables are spacious and the picture windows overlook the valley and ski gordola complex. This was Friday evening and it was full so very pleased that we had pre-booked. Earlier there was live apres-ski music including some great rock and roll to get everyone dancing in the street.
Back to the food, the adults had beef fondu and chips; plenty of it and good quality. I had cafe goumand after which the grandchildren helped consume having already had pasta followed by ice cream. Definitely a great place to eat in Grimentz.
