Where to stay in Interlaken?

The #1 hotel on TripAdvisor is in Unterseen. How far is Unterseen from Interlaken by foot and by car? Are there benefits to staying in one area versus another?

We have a car but are wondering how difficult it is to park it if we have to go back and forth between these 2 areas.

Thank you.

Roughly, Unterseen is separated from Interlaken by a river. Crossing the bridge on foot takes about a hundred seconds. The area around Interlaken West is usually jammed with road traffic, and hopeless for a parking space. May be it is just my bad luck.

Hi worldlytraveller95

You cannot really tell where Interlaken finishes and Unterseen starts! On the middle of one of the bridges crossing the river there are two shields side by side - one is the Interlaken shield the other the Unterseen shield. I tend to find Unterseen quieter than Interlaken, the area around Interlaken West tends to be noisier and more crowded than the area around Interlaken Ost. Many hotels have their own parking areas so it might be worth checking out the individual hotels websites to find out about parking.

Hope this helps,

Susan

Why stay in Interlaken at all? There are numerous beautiful alpine villages just to the south; all of which are a vastly superior alternative to Interlaken.
