This is a hostel/hotel and I had a solo room but a shared bathroom. The room is incredibly tiny and cramped and the shower room is hardly even a room. It's a cutout in the wall. The WC are a bit uncomfortable and weird to flush. Overall just not very impressed with my stay here. They do have a good... More

I stayed here while travelling Europe for 2 days and found it to be a small cozy place for backpackers. The rooms have bunk beds so don't expect anything more. The front desk has offers for discounts on many of the activities in the area and gave us a free travelers card that allowed us to take the bus for... More

One of the *worst* hotel (if it can even be called that) experiences. Don't go by the professional photographs they have posted on the websites. The rooms are small, dark and dingy. And the bathroom was absolutely filthy! The room for 4 was so cramped that we could not even fit in our luggage (4 small roll-ons). Don't waste your... More

Actually, this hotel is located in Unterseen, not in Interlaken. But it takes about 10 minutes on foot to get to the center of Interlaken. The rooms are quite clean and cozy. Unexpected thing happened after we came back to the hotel next afternoon. We found all our stuff next door to our room. We asked hotel manager what's going... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights during the end of May long weekend. The room was pretty decent (nothing much to write of) , the wash basin tap was faulty and water kept on dripping, the bath was very small, only issue was that the room was very cold as the room heaters seemed to be set to...

Loved it! The location is perfect, a few blocks from Interlaken city centre. The rooms ranging from very large to very small, but i´s OK. What deserves congratulations is the service. Both the receptionist and the owner of the pub's owner were very nice to us. Recommend, everything worked.

Everything about the hotel was good......I Had read in the earlier reviews that you cannot check in before 16:00 but we reached there at 15:10 and we were given the keys to our room so nothing to complain about..... A very friendly and helpful staff...... The only thing that was upsetting was that they didn't have a double bed, two... More

We booked it through booking.com. The booking was for 2 rooms with attached bath and toilet. When we reached the hotel at 3 PM, we had to wait 1 hour to check in.To my utter shock, the 2nd room has no bath and the room is nothing more than the size of a toilet in a small US hotel. There... More
