“Nice view - but you can get such views from any hotel in the Alpine region”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Switzerland is beautiful and so the views around this hotel is very pretty. It is a 15 mins walk from the train station.

It is a family run business. The owner is very unfriendly. And has many rules -e.g. you cant bring any food from outside, stay quietly, use the tiny swimming pool at specific times only...
Wifi is available in the lobby only, provided you buy chocolates/drinks etc.

The nice thing about the hotel is the view - however, you can get such views from any hotel in the Alpine region.

I stayed here while on a group tour for about 2 days in October and I already want to return. The hotel is great value for the views alone. It was so great to see the Alps & charming houses from my bedroom window. My room was basic but clean and comfortable. We enjoyed hanging in the lounge area at night and drinking the local Swiss beer at the bar. We ate 2 dinners there that were nice and a basic breakfast. Get to know the owner Urs. He's really nice. He warms up to you after some good conversation. Other than the views, the hotel is perfect for its location near Interlaken, so if you're coming for outdoor activities or to visit Jungfraujoch, this is an affordable place to stay that's a short bus ride from Interlaken. I hope to visit from the Bahamas again.

stayed 2 nights here with Expat Explore and we loved it! Our room had a balcony facing the mountains and the views were breathtaking! The owner Urs was quiet but charming in his own way. He does have some rules such as no electronic devices in the dining hall and keep the bathroom dry (shower curtain IN the tub). Breakfast was simple but sufficient but the dinners were very delicious!

a short walk to the train station to go up to Jungfraujoch and the trip was awesome! Free wifi when you buy a drink from the bar and the password changes daily. Will surely return to this hotel when I visit Wilderswil again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony and try their dinners!

This hotel was just so homey it was great. We did have to share a bath (though some rooms have their own), but everything here was so nice it made no difference. The lobby was like your living room at home. The kitchen served all home cooking that was super good. The views out my window were the best. I know it's a hostel but it really was a great place to stay. It was also close to the train station so an easy route to the "Top of Europe" at Jungfrau. I really was surprised with this place. There was a lobby bar and wifi. The rooms without the bathrooms had sinks and plenty of outlets for charging. It was warm and cosy.

This quaint hotel is nestled in the foot of the Alps. The views are indescribable.

The rooms are minimalist but comfortable and are in ear shot of cows grazing in the meadows. We stayed in a room on the top floor of the hotel and for whatever reason, the bathroom was void of electricity. So if you needed to use the bathroom at night, you would be doing so in complete darkness. This was not the case for rooms on the lower floor though.

The food was well prepared and homely, unlike most other hotels.

The Hotel is close to the bus and train stations making the town of Interlaken easily accessible.

There is also wifi access, provided you purchase a drink from the bar.

Our 2 night stay was enjoyable and comfortable.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Top Floor do not have electrity in the bathrooms.
