Reviewed January 28, 2013

This hotel looks so photogenic in the web. This is one reason why we chose this hotel, beside it's above-than-average review. The picture was not a lie. This hotel looked really nice from the outside. We had a triple balcony room. And we had a very nice view of the Alps from the balcony. Checking in was smooth, parking was easy. The room was big and clean, but looked dated. The bathroom looked old and needed more lighting. The hotel corridor was so dim, combined with it's dated carpet, made the feel of old 80's. The breakfast was a good point here. Not lots of choices, but we had one of the tastiest Omelettes ever provided in hotel breakfast.
We could walk to the shopping area nearby. Such a lovely town, very recommended to visit for skiing, sightseeing and relaxation.
Pros: Big room, nice view, and prime location
Negatives: a bit expensive and dated

Room Tip: Room with balcony

Actually, staying in Interlaken is like dreaming of heaven, specially when you look over those Alps mountains from a room in this hotel, the location is more than perfect, just on the river & 5 minutes from the train station (Interlaken West) & these stunning small streets are decorated with those beautiful shops.
The staff were really so friendly & cooperative, but the breakfast was nothing, mainly juices & some bread and butter, in addition there's no body to help for transferring the baggage.
Our room was double with balcony, somehow the furniture was old, they accepted cash payment in US$, it was really the best city i've visited ever, and i will do it again but with extended period not less than a week.

Room Tip: Room with balcony and view on the Jangfrauch mountains.

The rooms were large and spacious.we got a room on the 1st floor with a huge balcony.there were only 3 rooms of this type in the hotel.otherwise the rooms had 2 small balconies.The breakfast was ok.the breads were not fresh. The lobby was very big. You could rent bicycles. The view was beyond our imagination. we were right in the middle of two rivers. the hotel can be seen easily from the station itself. just 2 min walking distance from the station and the bus terminal.The receptionist was helpful and i would surely recommend this hotel to you.

Room Tip: Ask the receptionist if the rooms on the first floors are available.(the rooms with the large balcon...

We stayed at this hotel in Interlaken from the 30th May to 1 June 2012. Although the rooms are a little dated they were comfortable, clean,quiet and with a great view of the Jungfrau. The hotel is within walking distance of both train stations and the bus terminis. The breakfasts were basic and I stayed away from the scrambled egg, however the food on offer was plentiful and set us up for a day on the montains. The staff were great. The only complaint I have with this hotel is no tea or coffee making facilities in the room. A cup of tea costs 5 francs in the restaurant on the top floor - a bit of a rip off.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Jungfrau.

We stayed in this hotel for a few days.
The hotel location is good, very near to the bus terminal, train station and the shopping area.

The breakfast provided is not palatable and very crudely prepared. The spread is lousy and they even served stale bread which have expired for more than a week! (Could see the expired date on the packaging). Seemed that the hotel guests did not touch the bread as we saw the same packets of bread in the bin for days. Towards the end of our stay, I rather go hungry than eating the breakfast provided.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the river are beautiful . You can have a view of the beautiful Jungfrau too.
