Hotel Central Continental
Ranked #8 of 8 Hotels in Unterseen
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Positives:
- The hotel is literally 1 minute walk from the Interlaken West.
- The rooms are clean and neat.
- The bed and linings were very comfy.
- The view from the windows is amazing.

Negatives
- A bit expensive, as all hotels in Switzerland though.
- The breakfast was horrible. No yoghurt, just milk; no oats, just sugary cereals; no honey, just refined sugar. Coffee looked horrible and I didn't dare tasting the cheese and the ham as they looked like coloured plastic sticks.
- The cleaning staff were extremely noisy in the corridors very early in the morning shouting at each other.
- The room maids would knock insistently at 8am one day and 9am the other to clean the room. We found it a bit too early and annoying.
- All staff was always angry at each other and swearing (I speak Italian and Portuguese and these were the languages I heard during my stay so I could understand they were cursing one to the other - not very nice in front of guests).

Okay, not great review, but I would go back as in the end is the most convenient (price and location) place in the area.

Just a note about the night club: my boyfriend and I were almost tempted to go and have a laugh! The ads outside with semi naked women looked from the 80s and we could hear the cheesy music coming up from the hole of the lift. We found this sooo funny!

In any case, you cannot hear anything in the rooms. The hotel and the night club looked like completely two different businesses in the end.

Had a pleasant stay. Room was well maintained and the view from the balcony was nice. Lady at the reception was very helpful. We were apprehensive of the nightclub downstairs but did not have any trouble during our stay. Breakfast was decent and the train station was across the hotel.

The hotel has a good location, provides nice view from balcony & comes with large rooms.
However there is a nightclub downstairs, cleaning staff started at 6 am & 7 am another day, house has walls thin as paper

Moderately priced and moderately good. The worst bit was the coffee and breakfast but there are some charming things about this hotel. The foyer is great and it's in a really good central location. My bed was really comfy, always a plus!! Although twin singles means two beds jammed together....

Good location, steps from the train station. Beautiful view from the room's balcony. That's about all the positives however. The hotel stunk as soon as you walked in the door, there was a dog roaming around in the lobby, scratching at my bag. Service was not great, seemed very unorganized, and couldn't answer many questions. The room had several spiders I had to kill. The bed was sinking in the middle. Good news is that if you're in Interlaken you will rarely be in your room anyways.

The lobby reeks of cigarette smoke, the staff is never at the reception desk, breakfast food is questionable, and the rooms are pretty sparse. This hotel is also home to the Palace Exotic Night Club, so it's not the most family-friendly of establishments. That said, though, the location is fantastic, the views are spectacular, and the prices aren't too bad. And if you're vacationing in Interlaken, you shouldn't be spending much time in the hotel anyway.

Overall the hotel was nice. Great location, right next to Interlaken West station. Beautiful views from the balcony. But, we had to wait 15 mins to find someone at the reception to check in (at 2pm). There was no one anywhere, not even to ask where to find the receptionist, or to ask what places to visit etc. Breakfast was good. Its a group tour hotel. If there could be someone (informative) at the reception always, then I think its a wonderful place to stay. I would definitely come back for the view and location.
