There aren't too many hotels in Habkern, which is somewhat in the boondocks so to speak, but the Sport hotel it is situated beautifully among mountains, a bit away from the beautiful area of Interlaken (between Lakes!). Yes, Switzerland is very beautiful no matter where you go, so even when you pay around $120 and get a small room, you do not feel like complaining. As the name suggests, I would say, you would come to a hotel in this area either to hike or to ski. Since I came here in June, it was to hike.
The owners were laid back, had a dry sense of humor and they were very helpful. The guy asked us if we had good shoes to hike because he had just brought a British guy to the hospital after slipping on a patch of snow and hitting his head. I was not thrilled to hear this and I had to have quick tea with strong rum to forget it. Unlike in Austria, they are not really adept at preparing this treat, but they did have good local cheese to soothe me.
There was a full restaurant at the hotel and there were around two other restaurants in the small locality. But, it looked like there was no late night dining anywhere. However, considering it was still light at 10 p.m. it was hard to put your pajamas on.
I had a hard time falling asleep, but there was not much else to do. Even the TV was too small to watch leaning against my bed post. Yes, it was the place where you had to go to bed by 10 or be bored to death. No discos or late night bars! Hey, but I could not complain, the place was gorgeous, no matter where you looked, and you could keep looking even at 10 at night!
Breakfast had a lot of different cheese, Swiss bread and rolls, fruits, muesli, & yogurt. I was surprised to taste so much sugar in muesli. I always thought it was only in the US we ate so much sugar in cereal. Apparently the Swiss did that too, at least from what I ate this morning.
There is great hiking in the area, but it was definitely too cold to swim in the huge body of water of the Thun lake, but it was great to look at and take pictures of.
