Stayed for 2 nights with my family in June 2014. Stayed in 3rd floor with balcony. The hotel location is excellent with a view of Interlaken west railway station, bus and a small stream of clear blue water running near the hotel. Interkane west is only 2 min. walk. Hotel Staff are very cooperative. Breakfast is very good. Water kettle... More

We stayed here for three nights last week. Wish I had read the other reviews before booking. The hotel is pricey even by Swiss standards and it is run down. The breakfast-included- is horrendous. There is a charge for Wifi, which is just offensive gouging in my opinion. Don't bother with this place. I should point out that the housekeeping... More

It is not worth a mention. The hotel's star rating needs to reviewed else hapless travellers are being taken for a ride. Their are several nice places in Interlaken and around so don't waste your money staying in this place . Room, food, customer service, amenities, all deserve a 0 on 5 rating

The location of this hotel is fabulous! Only a block from the train station. And there ends my love for this place. We arrived early from Luzern (about 1:15 pm) but no one was even at the front desk. instead there was a sign that check in was at 2 pm. We had to wait around because there was no... More

The hotel was once quite grand. It is situated within a 5 minute walk of the train station. As well it has a lovely view of the canal and surrounding mountains. Upon entering the hotel it smells of cigarettes, the furnishings and rugs are thread bare and dirty. The counter is banged up. The elevator works but smells of cigarette... More

Hotel's rooms have a nice view. The rooms are clean. Our room was large enough. But the staff starts cleaning very early and they were so noisy. They can be more carefull about the noise. Except this I liked the hotel.

We went along for one night to Interlaken and found a room at this hotel. It was issue after issue: 1. Hotel stall were very lackadaisical and totally unprofessional upon check in. They didn't even bother to ask for ID. 2. Our room was really old. In fact the whole hotel is very old. The phone didn't even work -... More

This is a good hotel as far as location is concerned. We could see the train Station from the balcony of our room. In short it was barely 200 yards from the hotel. The hotel is an old building with no modern day card keys, instead we had regular keys with a bulky key chain. The reception staff was quite... More
