Good location, steps from the train station. Beautiful view from the room's balcony. That's about all the positives however. The hotel stunk as soon as you walked in the door, there was a dog roaming around in the lobby, scratching at my bag. Service was not great, seemed very unorganized, and couldn't answer many questions. The room had several spiders... More

The lobby reeks of cigarette smoke, the staff is never at the reception desk, breakfast food is questionable, and the rooms are pretty sparse. This hotel is also home to the Palace Exotic Night Club, so it's not the most family-friendly of establishments. That said, though, the location is fantastic, the views are spectacular, and the prices aren't too bad.... More

Overall the hotel was nice. Great location, right next to Interlaken West station. Beautiful views from the balcony. But, we had to wait 15 mins to find someone at the reception to check in (at 2pm). There was no one anywhere, not even to ask where to find the receptionist, or to ask what places to visit etc. Breakfast was... More

A fabulous location with great views, so close to Interlaken West Station. Very comfortable rooms BUT the staff - who appear to be a family - were appalling. Mother ranted and raved at son and husband who served the breakfast. Both were obviously terrified of her; never a smile to be seen, never a 'good morning' greeting in the four... More

To be fair I spoke to other guests who didn't mind this hotel but to me it was really a bit of a dive. There is a nightclub downstairs, although thankfully it wasn't open when we stayed. This place is so basic there wasn't even a rubbish bin in the room. Internet didn't work (We got a refund) so if... More

Just across the Interlaken west rly station yet at a serene place surrounded by 2 streams from both the sides makes the Hotel Central Continental situated at a unique location. Restaurants, Burger Joints, Coop, Migros departmental stores are within 2 minutes walk from here. Quite a variety yet same repeatative breakfast spread would be there every morning.

We spend in total 6 days in Switzerland and out of which 2 in Interlaken and 4 in Lucerne. We regret not to stay more here due to beautiful location of the Hotel. All Balconies were showing a nice view,... More

The Central Continental is convenient for Interlaken West railway station and handy for shops, restaurants etc. Our room was clean, spacious with a balcony giving a good view of the mountains. Breakfast was quite adequate, and the staff helpful and pleasant.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights - just as well we didn't stay any longer. The hotel is very run down, It's in urgends needs of renovations or maybe that's already too late. Breakfast was disgusting and unhygienic. We are amazed that hotels like that are allowed to stay open in a place like Switzerland. We were very... More
