There are certainly some positives - the view is great - the quadruple room is nice and spacious But the negatives certainly outweigh the positives - there is no coffee or tea in the rooms - The staff is extremely lackadaisical and unprofessional , the woman when we checked out was condescending and when we asked her whether there was...

The location of this hotel is fabulous! Only a block from the train station. And there ends my love for this place. We arrived early from Luzern (about 1:15 pm) but no one was even at the front desk. instead there was a sign that check in was at 2 pm. We had to wait around because there was no... More

The hotel was once quite grand. It is situated within a 5 minute walk of the train station. As well it has a lovely view of the canal and surrounding mountains. Upon entering the hotel it smells of cigarettes, the furnishings and rugs are thread bare and dirty. The counter is banged up. The elevator works but smells of cigarette... More

Hotel's rooms have a nice view. The rooms are clean. Our room was large enough. But the staff starts cleaning very early and they were so noisy. They can be more carefull about the noise. Except this I liked the hotel.

We went along for one night to Interlaken and found a room at this hotel. It was issue after issue: 1. Hotel stall were very lackadaisical and totally unprofessional upon check in. They didn't even bother to ask for ID. 2. Our room was really old. In fact the whole hotel is very old. The phone didn't even work -... More

This is a good hotel as far as location is concerned. We could see the train Station from the balcony of our room. In short it was barely 200 yards from the hotel. The hotel is an old building with no modern day card keys, instead we had regular keys with a bulky key chain. The reception staff was quite... More

Positives- -Location is excellent. Not just where it is in the town but also where the hotel is placed - right between a beautifully blue river. Every room (I think) will have some sort of view of the river. -Plenty of shops near (but not too near) the hotel. Restaurants, bars etc. -My room had a large window that opened... More

Best of this hotel: just a walk away from Railway Station and the market and offers a good view of the river infront. Thats it. The worst part: the lobby was horrible and stinky. Rooms were like a hostel room. To add to this, there was a adult club (well I am not 100% sure) located at the basement nicely... More

Negatives - A bit expensive, as all hotels in Switzerland though. - The breakfast was horrible. No yoghurt, just milk; no oats, just sugary... More
