Alpenruh

Eggli, Mürren, 3825, Switzerland

Clad in time-burnished pine, fitted with gables, and sporting some great gingerbread trim, the Alpenruh is as picturesque a hotel as you can get in Mürren. Its perch is spectacular, nearly cantilevered over the vast valley and with reach-out-and-touch vistas of the great Jungfrau and Eiger. No place in Mürren has such a fetching and gorgeous dining terrace. The prices here are on the gentle side, but the guest rooms verge on plain. The owners also run the Mürren cable car up to the Schilthorn, and you can trade in the hotel's buffet for breakfast atop the revolving Piz Gloria. During especially popular weeks, room rates are upped to include board.

PROS

  • views straight out of a postcard
  • tasteful interiors at relatively low prices

CONS

  • nearby cable-car girders mar the view from some rooms
  • only three bathrooms have bathtubs—if you like a long hot soak après-ski be sure to book one of them
