“Great hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2009

We stayed for 3 nights and had booked a room by email, although when we arrived there was some confusion as the staff didn't seem to be expecting us. It wasn't a problem as they had plenty of rooms available but it did make us wonder what would have happened if the hotel had been busy.

The room was great, looked freshly decorated and the furniture looked fairly new. Spotlessly clean, bathroom good too. Comfortable bed.

Hotel is a short walk from Interlaken West station and overlooks the river so in a good spot. There's a cake/coffee shop opposite.

We had dinner in the restaurant on 2 nights and the food and service was excellent. We struggled to find anywhere else in the town that served traditional food and this was spot on.

Liked best - good value for money hotel, clean, great food.

Liked least - breakfast is served at 8 so a bit frustrating if you like to get out and about early. Having tea & coffee in the room would have a good way to make up for that.

A restaurant-tavern with 10 rooms (?) above it and plenty of local flavor. The rooms are very neat and up-to-date. Our room was #1 and looked out over the front awning of the restaurant onto the street and the River Aare.

We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed breakfast daily in the restaurant. Comfortable beds, clean rooms. The rooms are a bargain by Swiss standards (120 SF/night, incl. breakfast).

It helps if you speak a bit of German. We only know a little German and the staff knew a bit of English but we had no problems.

We would stay there again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2008

We had a great room (large, with new wardrobe closets and a small kitchen!) and a decent bathroom ensuite. The location next to the Laundromat was very handy, and they have a small lot a few blocks away for free parking if you have a car. The check-in staff in the restaurant below was friendly (probably selecting one of their largest rooms to offer us). However, for breakfast in the bar they want the guests to eat from a small selection on one side of the ground floor while others eat on the other side. Unfortunately, the other side had many smokers (very, very common in Switzerland) while the guest side had folks with cologne lathered on and a hostess who poured on the perfume – so the whole ground floor was very smelly. We took our breakfast out to the front patio for a cold, quick eat – much to the distress of the hostess. I suppose this confluence of smoke and perfume could happen at any hotel breakfast and shouldn’t be held against this particular place.

  • Liked — Location away but close to Interlaken tourist strip
  • Disliked — Smoky breakfast area

We wanted to stay in Interlaken and were passing by that hotel. Right, it doesn't look great from the outside, but when we were asking for a room, they were very friendly and showed us one.

We stayed right away, the room was very big, everything was new and clean.

Breakfast was also great, cereals and a variety of breads to choose from.

  • Liked — Very friendly staff and great room
  • Disliked — We could only stay one night :-)
