Perfect for family winter get-away

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed in Alpenrose and had a fantastic week, despite the lack of snow. The location is ideal as we could easily walk to town for dinners and shopping, and a new supermarket is just steps away. There is also a sports center very close to the house with rock-climbing, ice skating, swimming, and the Tourist Information office. We could also walk to the train station for the trip up to the ski areas. The apartment was clean, comfortable, warm and well-equipped for cooking our own meals. The owners were responsive, helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend this chalet!

Good Location Only

  • 3 of 5

I booked Studio Eiger for my stay here in Grindelwald for 5 nights.

The booking was done with relative ease and owners promptly answered all my queries within respectable time frame.

Upon reaching the appartment i was greeted with first of my suprises i.e. no shoes inside which should have been mentioned before, anyways upon inside i felt everything was neat and looked good although the equipment was a bit dated but all was functional.

then i started to notice all drawbacks of the appartment namely:

1- poor placement for electrical points to charge your gear,

example middle of wall with no wear to keep a mobile even if you plugged your charger there, right above kitchen sink where you might spill water, behind bed where you would need to shift bed by atleast 6 inches or so and then hence sacrifice on the backrest.

2- bed was again two single beds joined to be one, in fact i had informed the owner that i am with an infant and this arrangement was really sick, my baby kept stucking her hands and feet between beds as they drifted apart even with 10 minutes of lying down.

3- no toilet paper in washroom.

4- wifi reception was so poor that we had to take devices to stairwell to connect and after much pain when they do connected they would work only erratically.

5- a simple favor of dropping us back to station which is 2 minutes walk was ignored citing unusual reasons. (we requested this favor as it was slight uphill and with infant and luggage it would have been comfortable but we managed anyway)

6- there were some corners with spider webs and a couple of insects also were sighted behind beds.

on the positive (the ony positive) hair dryer was handed to us upon request.

all in all studio is well located and has good views, but be prepared for above as well.

Owner's Response: I hope it would be helpful if I explain a few things and then answer the points raised. We do ask our guests to leave their shoes off when they are inside the apartments, this is normal practice in Switzerland and means that outside dirt, mud, snow etc. is not transferred into the accommodation. We take any comments by guests very seriously and we are constantly trying to improve our service or rectify any issues mentioned by guests. 1. With regards to the question of electrical points, there are four electric sockets in the studio, two in the middle of the wall and two at floor level. There is certainly one where you can easily charge at least two electrical items at the same time, leaving them on the table adjacent to the socket or on the T.V stand. We have never had a complaint regarding lack of sockets before in over 9 years of letting the accommodation. 2. The studio does have two twin beds, which is how the accommodation is described, I am sorry if this particular guest had a problem because their child sleeps in the same bed as them. We do have cots available but these guests did not wish to use one. 3. We provide 2 rolls of toilet paper when guests arrive and subsequently as it is self catering accommodation, guests are expected to provide their own. 4. I am sorry if the WIFI connection was a bit slow or erratic, we do live in the mountains and sometimes interferences due to the weather or other can occur. We have the best specification WIFI available from Swisscom and we always try to ensure that we check out any problems guests have. Normally any problems are quickly resolved. This is a service we provide free of charge and most guests find it very efficient. 5. I am afraid we do not provide a drop off and pick up service from the station. One of the advantages of our Chalet is that it is only 150m, a very easy walk from the train station. In this particular instance the guests were also leaving at 6.30am in the morning, and had in fact been checked out the evening before. We did offer to take their luggage to the station that evening where it could have been stored at the station but this offer was refused. 6. I am very sorry if there were any spider webs in the studio. Unfortunately we do find that a few insects do occasionally make their way inside from the balcony doors, especially in the summer when the doors have been left open.

Fantastic location and accomidations

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful week in Grindelwald. The Chalet Alpstein was our home base to vacation in the Berner Oberland region. The chalet was spacious and nicely appointed. A quick five minute walk from the Grindelwald train station made it easy to catch the train. The view from the spacious deck is spectacular. The beds were very comfortable. It was an added bonus to have a shower and sink in three of the four bedrooms. The master bedroom has a shower/tub, double sink and toilet. We found the accomidacations ideal for the six women in our group. The chalet location was quiet. The walk to the main street shops and restaraunts is convienant. I highly recommend staying at the Chalet Alpstein and would absolutely stay here when I am in Switzerland again.

Excellent summer holidays

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this lovely apartment. There was plenty of space for us and the terrace offered a stunning view of the Alps we'll surely remember. Right next to the centre and with direct access to the train to the Jungfrau, it was incredibly well located. Rosalind was extremely helpful and informative and we enjoyed throughly our holidays in Switzerland.

Dramatically set in truly magnificent scenery directly beneath the towering north face of one of Switzerland's most famous mountains- the Eiger, Grindelwald offers something for everyone. Grindelwald is easy to get to and hard to leave!


With more skiing than many of the more famous resorts, if you are considering Grindelwald for the first time you won't be disappointed.

Grindelwald provides extensive skiing to suit all abilities, with a half pipe and snow park, and 20 km of dedicated tobogganing runs. Grindelwald's three ski areas- from the South facing area of First over to the North facing areas of Männlichen and Kleine Scheidegg, the ski pistes face into the valley from all sides so you can tailor your skiing to the prevailing weather conditions.


For walkers there are 300km of marked hiking, walking and mountain trails, set in some of the most outstanding mountain scenery in the world. When was the last time you got up close to a crackling blue glacier?

Ski: Grindelwald has three main ski areas, Kleine Scheidegg, Mannlichen and First. The huge area of skiing provides an extensive range of slopes for all abilities and the surrounding mountains are breathtakingingly beautiful. There are over 230Km of ski area with 23 blue runs 34 red and 14 black. One of the greatest pleasures is skiing down one of the many wonderful routes from the top all the way back to the village at the end of a vigorous day. Grindelwald is very beautiful and the skiing is fantastic, not to be missed.
