“Beautiful place with nice room & view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

My husband and I booked a double room and to our delight was given a family room. The rooms and toilet were spacious and clean. Each room has a TV. The double room faced the lake which is beautiful turquoise colour. I would strongly recommend taking a stroll along the lake.

The restaurant serves good authentic Swiss food, price pretty much the same everywhere. Breakfast (included with room reservation) was good and filing too.

The owners/waitresses were very friendly and helpful. One of them helped us with our luggage up the stairs. This is the only down side -no elevator!

On the whole, we had a wonderful experience staying here.

My husband and I traveled to Interlaken in early September. We chose this hotel after reading great reviews and had booked a double room in May. Our trains were delayed so we reached Hotel Aarburg late evening. When we got there the lady looked confused and was clearly not expecting us. We gave her the printout of our reservations and she was even more confused and said they didn't have a room for us and were not expecting us, they didn't have any reservations!!! She checked her book again and said she only has one single room vacant but it would be really small for us. She said it wasn't her fault that they didn't receive any reservations from us, which is weird since we had a printout confirming one! Finally she rang another hotel and found us a room there and we were too exhausted to argue. Thankfully the other hotel was comfortable and the owners there were really warm and helpful! We later got to know that this does happen and often they find a room for the guests in another hotel. We had to pay the same room-prices as were decided when we booked and Hotel Aarburg would settle whatever extra.
PS: I guess since i didn't stay here I can't say much about the Value and Sleep quality rating, but i am unable to undo the ratings. Oops.

Room Tip: I understand that such things can happen but I would suggest that you call and confirm your bookings...

We ate here on recommendation from our hotel and were not disappointed both my wife's and my meals were freshly cooked and were wonderful. The waitress, whom we assume as the owner was very friendly, we even tried to tip, and she returned some of the tip, explaining it as too much as most if the service is included. The service was a little slow, however was on par with the rest of Europe! I highly recommend this place for Athentic Swiss cuisine.

It's a very interesting hotel. The main business is a restaurant with great local cuisine on the first floor and only after that as an additional function it is a hotel with ten rooms on the second and third floors. This feature means that there is no reception at all - you take your room key from a waitress. If you need any service you should ask waitress directly. Despite this approach the hotel itself is quite cute: rooms are clean, but not too spacious. The price is more or less affordable, breakfast is nice and wireless internet is available everywhere. The view from the window is magnificent: mountains and rivers. It's exactly what you expect from Switzerland.

Our hotel recommended this spot for true Swiss food. It's a very quick walk from Hotel Bellevue and in a beautiful building with a great view! It was full of locals and we even got to meet the owner, Britta. I got the steak and my husband got the chicken piccata. Mine was WONDERFUL but his was just ok. Both were between 25-33 franks and the beer and wine were reasonably priced. They definitely favor the locals when it comes to service, but that's understandable! If you're staying here just know that to get to your room, you have to walk thru the restaurant and the server handles room keys as well.

Ate here on a recommendation from our hotel. Food was great and had a yummy seasonal menu. Portions are large but everything was fresh and hot. Our party enjoyed seasonal lamb w local asparagus and pork stroganoff. The waitress/front desk/one woman show was a delight, she answered our questions about the food and gave us time to enjoy our evening. Do bring your patience as she does everything, takes orders, delivers food, checks in guests- they need to get her some help! Would suggest the apple fritters as a great end to your evening. So yummy!

We arrived at Interlaken West station and the hotel is just 10 min walk from there. It was not difficult to find out since all the hotels are numbered and you can easily trace them if you have a map of the place.We were overwhelmed to see the location of the hotel. The river linking two crystal clear lakes with Jungfrau as the backdrop left us mesmerized.Our room, though quite small was clean with comfortable bed. We were lucky to get a roadside room and a sun kissed Jungfrau welcomed us the next morning. Breakfast was simple but we really enjoyed it sitting on the terrace.The staff were quite friendly and we had an overall good experience staying there.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the road offer a great view.
