This hotel has some "basic rooms", with shared facilities, and some en-suite. We had one of the en-suite rooms. The room itself is a very decent size, basically but comfortably furnished. Our en-suite consisted of a toilet and shower, quite compact but perfectly usable. Good shower (good flow, hot water is hot rather than tepid, hot water available all day... More

I usually do my booking based upon reviews and in this case took a chance. Unfortunately, poor was the best I could give this hotel. It was booked through an online aggregator for a relatively reasonable price. The 95 CHF/per night for 5 nights was still more than what we felt was due. We tried to move hotels after the... More

I am sure this hotel had better times, but I was quite dissatisfied with it during our visit to Interlaken. Although it is OK to stay there, I would pick a different place next time. The main problem is the cleanliness of the rooms. In ours, we had some terrible smell. We had some dirt on the floor. Under the... More

I read a few reviews, I do not know who could have wrote them. It was so dirty and old, I was afraid to take off my clothes. The bathroom is just large enough to sqeeze in. I had two rooms with my family, I would never stay them again. Some of the reviews, raved about the breakfast. If you... More

We were also given bus passes for the time of our stay as well as the last day to get us to the train station. The bus station is very... More

A very clean and comfortable hotel. 10 Minute walk to central Interlaken, but the owners were very helpful in providing information in English. Expensive but due to the area of Switzerland, international and a good base for exploring the area. Several bars and restaurants within a couple of minutes walk as well as the William Tell theatre. We found 2... More

The picture of this hotel may look good but it is a very old hotel in need of lots of work. Rooms are very dated and the bathroom is a joke. More like a backpackers hotel with loud partying going on into the early hours and with the walls being so thin you will have a hard time sleeping. The... More
