This is a reasonable hotel in a very touristy town. The good points are its location - being 5 min walk from Interlaken Ost station as well as the furnicular to Harder Kulm. There's a large supermarket nearby and being on the main road is convenient to get to local restaurants.
The staff was also helpful with travel advice and helped us purchase tickets to Jungfrau. There's limited (free) parking at the back of the hotel.
We had arranged business rooms so we can get internet access. When we arrived we were told that wifi was not free but wired internet was. Unfortunately the wired internet in both our rooms refused to work with our macs and were were given wifi cards to use instead. By the 2nd night these had run out and we had to ration our usage to last the stay.
Although our rooms were reasonable in size there was no fridge (there was a shared one at the end of the business floor). One of our rooms facing the back had a lovely view of a church with the mountains as a backdrop. While this was great during the day, the church bells tolled 15 minutely through the night with a climax on the hour each hour. This can be really annoying, to say the least, especially if you're a light sleeper.
Overall this is a reasonable hotel on the tourist trail despite the problems with the rooms.
