As a small family Hotel we are not able to have 24h Service. This is clear defined in the booking confirmation. If we get no Message for late check Inn or traffic problems we have to go to bed once. So we need after 1.00 in the night few minutes to come to the reception to do the Check Inn.... More

Nice 4 person room. Quirky WiFi, nice on site parking, small patio, convenient to downtown. Not a value pick, one of the most expensive budget hotels we stayed in, more pricey than Zermatt with no where as nice of amenities.

Your superior Family room was charged with 306.00 for 4 Persons incl. breakfast in the absolute peak of the season. We offer also smaller standard rooms for less. But check once in the winter season the prices between... More

I spent a night there while cycling accross Switzerland and the owner is very welcoming, friendly. The hotel had free wifi, a confortable bed and the room and bathroom were very clean. The breakfast was decent with a good choice of dairy products, meats and fruits.

Was a bit skeptical after reading mixed reviews, but was pleasantly surprised with the room n hotel. Its not located very near to the west station or where mostly all the hotels are, but was walk-able in nice weather. Their is a bus which drops you 2 minutes away from the hotel. Would definitely recommend to all. My girls were... More

Remembering that Interlaken is expensive makes this hotel a great place to stay and a very good value. The hotel, admittedly, on the outside does not look impressive and it is removed from the center of the village by a couple of blocks. However, the rooms on the inside are very modern, very well-furnished, and are clean. As an added... More

Good Deal in Expensive Interlaken We stayed at the Hotel Derby for the last 3 nights of our trip in Europe. We booked through a 3rd party site who was very misleading about the amenities offered by the hotel, but that's a bone to be picked with them, not Derby. I've seen a few complaints about distance from the train... More

We actuall booked another hotel booking.com online and was advised to check in at Hotel Derby upon arrival at our original hotel. We should be glad with this arrangement as this hotel is a lot more quiet and homey. On the ground floor of this petit complex, our room has a lovely small balcony for sunbathing or whatever you like.... More

1. Far from both station. Don't trust google map to go there. It will take you another five minutes. 2. No lift, hope you have G/F room assigned it you have big luggage as there is no one to help you pick up stairs. 3. You will be welcomed by an expired interlaken biscuits.

I stayed here in a family group, for 2 nights. Service was efficient, friendly and helpful regarding local attractions, maps, repairing both my bedside lights. Breakfasts were generous and varied; coffee excellent, though machine in room would be better replaced by a kettle, and it's odd to have 15+ sugar sachets... but only 1 capsule!! Room was clean and comfortable... More

We stayed at hotel Derby from may 17-19, 2014. The location is good, rooms are clean and the couple managing the hotel are simple, courteous and friendly. The breakfast was simple and there were no surprises with respect to facilities or charges. The owners guided us very well on the trains/buses to take for Jungfrau ,Schilthorn and other places.
