We were spending a week in Switzerland. We flew to Zurich and travelled by train to Interlaken.
On arrival at the Metropol, we were warmly and efficiently welcomed and shown to our room which was on the 14th floor with a wonderful view of the Jungfrau and the surrounding town. The room was comfortable but not remarkable. The bathroom was very nice and clean with all the necessary accoutrements, but there was no shelf or counter to put make-up items and I had to use the toilet lid! A bonus was that the para gliders sailed right past our balcony, and we could shout out to them. There is a restaurant with a balcony on the 15th floor which is worth a visit for tea.
we took half-board and the breakfast was excellent, and the evening dinners were very good although the half board menu was somewhat limited.
We have one criticism of this hotel. We were there for three nights and were very happy with the food for two nights. Dinner on the final night was a bit of a disaster. The hotel had a banquet for 150 people and apparently the kitchen could not cope and were unable to serve the dozen or so guests in the dining room efficiently. The service was non existent and we waited for an hour and a half for our main course. Unfortunately when it arrived I was unable to eat it as it was just too late. We arrived in the dining room at 7.50pm and the main course was served at 9.20pm. The other diners suffered the same fate. The Waiter and the Manager were very apologetic and waived the charge for the drinks. However this tainted our stay, and we would not be confident to visit there again. Rather sad.
