“A hotel with fab views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We booked this hotel for the superb views it has got,n we were absolutely delighted in staying in the room with the view of river Aare.The rooms are small but neat.The breakfast was also good,specially i liked their homemade jams and croissants.The front desk staff was helpful,only negative in our stay there was dat we had taken their autumn package which had breakfast and dinner included in it,but we were told to be present for the dinner by 7pm sharp which was not possible for us since we are a honeymoon couple who wants to see the place rather than being present for the dinner on time like a hostel :| So the first day we came by 7:30pm n were told that we are late in a stern manner which really hurt me :( so the nxt day we dint had dinner there and chose to not spoil our mood and explored places in beautiful interlaken.So my advice to anybody is not to go for breakfast+dinner package as it may be the hotel policy that they serve dinner in specific timings which is ok if u know it in advance.Apart from this i dont hav any unpleasant experience in Goldey,and would still go back when i m nxt time there for the beautiful views :)

Located smack between the Interlaken east and west stations. So whichever station you are headed to requires a 15 minute stroll. Fortunately it is a pleasant walk along the water canal. The hotel is somewhat dated and the room is small. Breakfast is average in quality. The staff are helpful without being friendly. The real clincher is being based in Interlaken itself. The various scenic rides we can hop onto with the Swiss pass made everything worthwhile. From the cruise on Lake Brienz to trips to Jungfrau, Murren, Grinawald...Blessed to be soaking in the picturesque beauty of Switzerland's country side.

I have stayed here twice as I was so impressed by the excellent service and can do attitude of the staff. The hotel is an easy few minutes from the centre of Interlaken and has private parking right outside. The rooms are functional, comfortable and often have personal touches such as welcome cards/treats.

As both my stays have been one night visits I cannot comment on how it would be for anyone staying longer but I expect it would be up to the same standard as I have come to expect from Hotel Goldey. I would highly recommend it.

We stayed here for 5 days, and have just returned.
The hotel is excellently situated and the staff most friendly.
The rooms were spotless and one of us had a panoramic view of the town with the Jungfrau smiling at us each morning!
The breakfast was generous and would cause many a five star hotel to blush.
Wlan was free. The signal strength varied in the room but was good in the public areas.
All questions regarding trips were answered in a friendly and helpful way and bicycles were provided free of charge.
We have no hesitation in recommending Hotel Goldey. A five star hotel is simply not necessary.

My wife and I spent 4 days at the Hotel. It is a good 15 minute walk from the Interlaken West station and could be challenging if you have large suitcases in tow. We had an Aare River view room, which made sitting on the balcony so relaxing and enjoyable. You also get a good view of the Jungfrau and of the many paragliders making their way down from the mountains. The many positives include (1) very good breakfast buffet, (2) afternoon snacks in the lobby, (3) very helpful front desk staff, where mountain rail tickets can also be purchased, (4) 15 minute walk to the Interlaken Ost station, where many excursions to the mountains begin, (5) small fruit basket on day of arrival and cookies given us on checkout, (6) nicely prepared dinner served in the dining room, (7) peaceful and scenic walks on the river promenade where we fed the ducks and swans. The negatives included (1) bathroom had extremely small shower stall and very little counter space, (2) 5 to 7 minute walk to main downtown area which can be challenging when it rains heavily. I don't want to accuse the Hotel of bed bugs, but my wife and I did find some bumps on our arms and legs on our last day, which were later diagnosed by our doctor as bed bug bites. As to whether these occurred at Goldey or at a previous hotel, we do not know. Since we didn't know they were bed bug bites, we never reported it to the Hotel.

Will certainly return to Goldey on a future visit to Interlaken.

Room Tip: A river view room is worth the extra money.

we spent three nights in this hotel when we participated Jungfrau marathon. Staff was very nice, helpful and friendly. Never met this friendly staff anywhere. Rooms are ok, rather modest but clean. Location of the hotel is very good: it is close to city center, but yet in a quiet and beautiful location, just next to river. If we ever again travel to Interlaken we will book this hotel. Additionally,the hotel had many parking lots although the tourist office adviced us not to arrive by car since there isn't parking space in Interlaken....

Room Tip: ask for the room facing to river

Visited during a warm spell, so understandably, the room was a bit too hot. I guess not many Swiss hotels would bother investing in aircon! The bathrooms need an overhaul - even the grouting and bath panels look a bit grubby. The wifi in the rooms rarely worked for the entire 3-day stay. Plus, the bar shuts at ~11pm, so you get kicked out of the only place in the hotel with working wifi at that point.
The view from the room was stunning (apart from the dreadful monolithic tower block in the town) and the river Aare is a beautiful blue. However, there are many clean cheap places in Interlaken, and unless you plan on using the balcony function of the room (which we definitely did on this trip) it would be cheaper to stay elsewhere.
Staff were very polite and if you have time, the free use of the pool seems like it would be a good experience.

Room Tip: The view south is worth the extra cost.
