The hotel is located in 2 min walk from station and offers a superb view of the Alps. Location is its USP. Downtown is just 5 min walk where you can comfortably stroll in the night. All the restaurants and shops are located just outside the hotel. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Rooms are decent enough for a... More

The USP of the hotel is its location. Right outside the Interlaken West station. But beyond this advantage, there's scarce little the hotel can boast about. The proximity to the station, and the smiling staff in the breakfast room earns the hotel two stars. We stayed two nights May-end, and were not impressed with the hotel at all. The free... More

Good things first - The hotel is located right on the main road with great views of the alps. Rooms are clean, decent in size but need a makeover, pretty old hotel. Though they claim to have Wi-Fi on the reception area, it never worked for us during the 3 days stay. Do not miss the views from the huge... More

The Merkur Hotel was one of the best hotels which we stayed for 2 days, the staff at the receptio Madam MARY and at the breakfast MADAM ELIZABETH were so kind, cooperative and helpful and their way of guest recieving and treat was excellent. The location is again excellent hardly 10 meters from the INTERLAKEN (WEST) stn

Was expected to be very disappointed on this particular hotel before my trip to Switzerland as there was so many bad reviews on this hotel. The hotel location is just across Interlaken West Station. A short walk away, you can get to coop supermarket to get cheaper stuffs as food in Switzerland are expensive. Beside the hotel, there are quite... More
