We only stayed in the Hotel Tell for one night, but we loved every minute of it. Upon arrival, the owner gave us an overview of the area,and provided us with bus passes as well as maps. He helped us with our luggage, showed us to our room and made sure everything was to our satisfaction. You can absolutely tell... More

Great hotel,15 min walk from Interlaken Ost which enabled us to access Jungfraujoch, an absolute must if in this area Hotel staff very friendly. Good food choice and beer at very reasonable price (3.70sf) Hotel issus a free local bus pass for the duration of the stay-very handy at the end of a long day up the mountain at Jungfrau

For us, it was hard to find Hotel Tell- it seemed like a long journey, especially since we had to drag our luggage there. We had to use a phone gps after feeling lost. It's best to just take Bus 104 from the train station to the Hotel Sonne stop. Once there, we had a warm reception, with the lady... More

We stayed in a 3-room apartment which is located beside the main Tell-Hotel. The apartment is truly spacious with fully equipped kitchen. The reception was smooth but you need to carry your luggage to the unit which is located at the 2nd floor as there is no elevator. Co-op supermarket is located nearby. Beautiful view as you are surrounded by... More

While the hotel is away from the centre of the town of Interlaken this is not a problem as it is a pleasant walk or you can use the free bus pass the hotel provides to get around.

The breakfast spread is minimal and more like a home breakfast. The pub in the evening is a very lively place in... More
