There’s a lot to love about this hotel that you wouldn’t always expect from an affordable stay which is why I recommend it as one of the best romantic hotels Switzerland has to offer on a budget. I can’t imagine that many Interlaken hotels would have breathtaking views (in this case of the gorgeous Jungfrau Switzerland mountain range) from even the standard rooms, for example! We were surprised to discover that our standard room also had a balcony with a view of the stunning garden, which also features a hot tub that’s tucked away behind some trees. If you’re visiting during Switzerland winter, you will have to brave the cold and walk (or run!) through the garden and back to enjoy it but I was told it’s worth it 😀
The rooms were beautiful, with stunning rustic decorations.
Couples staying at Hotel Alpenrose and Gardens are also treated to amazing views in the dining area. Get there early if you want to have the best seats for breakfast – they are located at the very back, next to the windows. The on-site restaurant serves Swiss and international cuisine. We enjoyed strong-flavored cheese fondue one evening, which is said to be a favorite meal among the Swiss.

Switzerland has colored eggs!
Fun fact about Switzerland: You’ll discover when you’re having breakfast at the hotel that the chicken eggs are colored for some reason 😀
One also can’t help but notice the super cute seating area for two at the entrance of Hotel Alpenrose.
Other benefits of staying here are that there’s a pizza restaurant only 10-minutes walk away and the hotel is close to the train station.
Hotel Alpenrose is interestingly owned by one of the co-founders of Expat Explore, Carl Cronje. Expat Explore is a tour company that specializes in fantastic budget tours. We were fortunate to meet Carl, who is also a celebrity for starring in his own TV show named Die Alpenrose. What a lovely down to earth guy he was! He even helped us with our suitcases and took the time to have a chat with some of the hotel guests 🙂
With all of these amazing features at affordable prices, I probably don’t have to tell you – be sure to book early if you hope to stay at Hotel Alpenrose and Gardens. Book directly through their website to get the best rates.
