“schlimm!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2009

Watch out! This hotel has two names - the second name is ' funny farm'. If you are seeking for a bit of freedom, don't go there since the hotel is also a youth hostel!!!
And the prices for the rooms are too high for what they are - old fashioned, dull and even mould in the bathroom...

I stayed in this beautiful hotel with my two young sons for four nights. It was very confortable and had lovely spacious rooms. The boys enjoyed the 45 TV stations! Large bathroom and deep bath. Lovely garden (with pond) to run around in. Easy 15 minute walk into the centre of Interlaken. Views to the mountains. Gorgeous dining room with substantial breakfast. Internet access.

We chose this hotel for a well located budget stay for 3 with local character. My husband and I were travelling with our 18 year old son and found this hotel perfect for the experience we wanted. Yes the hotel's best days are behind it (the stair runners are worn, etc.) but it was clean and full of character. Our room (427) had possibly the best view in all of Interlaken with a perfectly centred view of the Jungfrau mountain from our quaint window balcony. The days were hot but the cool mountain breeze made the rooms wonderful for sleeping at night. The staff was helpful, the continental breakfast more than adequate and there was free internet in the large lobby/lounge. Several restaurants serving local cuisine were nearby and while we had a car, they provide you with a free local transit card. There are many adventure outfits close by and we chose to go canyoning as a family at Grimsel with Alpin Raft - a fantastic decision to say the least and their meeting spot was just behind the Mattenhof! If you're a spoiled, pampered type who needs the latest design decor then it's not for you, but if you're down to earth and want casual ambiance and would rather spend your money doing things in Switzerland then the value's here.

  • Liked — Ecclectic past grandeur and excellent scenery with good nearby ammenities

We were directed to this alleged hotel when our one-night reservation at another hotel was lost and they could find us nothing else. In retrospect, it probably would have been worth sleeping in the car instead. This is a backpacker's flop. The rooms are at least clean, though old, worn and spartan. However, to get to them you must run the gauntlet of semi-inebriated college students and choking cigarette smoke in the lobby. Parking is free, wireless internet in the lobby for a nominal fee. Lots of noise from the pub across the street, though thankfully it subsided about midnight - my guess is the next evening it would have gone on longer as Ziggy Marley was scheduled to perform in the lounge. Oh, good. The worst part of it all was I paid CHF 200 for my wife and I to stay one night in this dive, and then paid only CHF 160 per night the next 5 nights at the truly grand Grandhotel Giessbach nearby. The two opposite ends of the spectrum. Stay away from this one.

I will have to have a little chat with my travel agent on this one. The Park Mattenhof was strange to say the least. It may have been a Grand Hotel in it's day from the pictures on the walls, however I think it is more of a backpackers hotel now than anything else. The bar in the lobby had a number of locals hanging out. The cigarette smoke smell was putrid to say the least. Were were on the 4th floor and all my clothes in the room reeked of smoke. It obviously came up through the vents. The hotel itself reminded me of the hotel in "The Shining". The running joke our whole stay was that I was waiting for the kid to come down the hall on his tricycle or see the twin girls. It was an eerie sort of place to say the least and we would not stay there again.
