We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights to visit Interlaken. The hotel only has internet in the lobby, and even then not always. Breakfast was meager, no frills for sure. The rooms were old but not uncomfortable. The staff was very nice. The hotel is centrally located with a easy walk to all parts of town. Oh, and I... More

Small room, no internet in the room - just in the lobby after u pay SFR 5. They even charge for extra towels or ice or anything extra. Parking is SFR 8. We stayed there 3 nights and the breakfast was exactly the same all 3 mornings, and very basic. No fresh fruits or fresh juices. Rooms were cleaned everyday... More

The location is the only thing great about this Hotel, a stones throw from Interlaken west station. Our experience hasn't been the best at this hotel. The staff is unhelpful, rooms are in a desperate need of renovation, uncomfortable beds, wifi does't work even though you are charged for it, proper toileteries & towels are not provided. the breakfast is...

I had booked balcony room at this hotel for three days through Booking.com, when I arrived they said they don't have any balcony room available. When moved upstairs, they have very horrible, smelly corridors with little light. Rooms are also not maintained, even I noticed they were not doing cleaning properly, they were just coming and changing quilt sheets, at... More

The rooms are very plain and ordinary. very dimly lit with absolutely no amenities. my tv was an old 14 inches which could not be viewed from the... More

This hotel is bang opposite hotel Interlaken West station, hence very convinient. Starting with a small drawback, you will have to climb some stairs to reach the lobby level. So, it might be quite a task for people with lots of luggage. The reception area and the lobby level is very well maintained and has a nice decorum. The waiting... More

Stayed for days and while the location is probably one of the best in interlaken, especially if you get a room with the balcony facing the river, the staff of the hotel really take out all the fun from the experience. Shockingly rude, these guys behave as if they do not want ANY guest to come and stay with them.... More

My family and I were intially booked at Hotel Rossli, but we got moved to Hotel Central Continental after they said they were overbooked. Maybe one of the rooms was a bit bigger than average but it also came with a terrible moldy smell filling the entire above average space. There were absolutely no amenities inside the room besides a... More
