Everyday I could look forward to the chocolate muesli and fresh coffee at breakfast. Our family was accommodated in two adjacent rooms and the internet access was good. Christine offered helpful tips, both in terms of what to see and where to eat. The rooms are small by NA standards but probably average compared to those elsewhere in Europe. It was an easy walk (even with luggage) from the west side train station to our hotel and really just another 15 to 20 minutes to walk across town.

I stayed at Hotel Alphorn with my parents. For the first night I stayed in a triple room on the ground floor with them and for the additional 2 nights I stayed in a standard room on the 1st floor. The triple room is large with one queen and one single bed. There is also a small table and tv in the room. The bathroom is a good size with a bath/shower, basin and toilet. It was reasonably quiet. The single room (105) had a comfortable double bed, 2 chairs and a chest of draws. As a single traveller I found it difficult to find a spot for my suitcase. I don't know how two people managed the space. The bathroom can only be described as small bordering on tiny. As a medium sized Aussie, my elbows hit the wall and shower screen when sitting on the toilet. The shower was very small and you could not extend your arms without hitting the glass screens. As a light sleeper, I found the walls to be paper thin. You can hear everything. I hated lying in bed listening to the person on the other side of the wall snoring. But, then, this is where ear plugs can come in handy. The service was exceptional and cannot be faulted. This place is a good choice because of the reception you receive on arrival, the assistance given should you wish to do anything and the quality of the breakfast, which was very nice everyday.

Travelling with my elderly parents, I did find that this hotel was a little too far from the main entertainment area. After long days of sightseeing, it was exhausting for them to then have to walk back to the main shopping area to find food because there is nothing within an easy/quick distance of the hotel. Being younger, this was no issue for me.

All in all, it was a very good stay and value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor and a room on the corner with the least amount of adjoining rooms.

This is a nice place to stay in Interlaken. Don't expect too much confort, but a clean and well located place to stay. The room is very small, and the bathroom, claustrophobic. But the breakfast is nice, the staff is very friendly, the parking, free, and they give you a pass to use the public transport, included in their price. The city is very beautifull and staying there you can have a lot of fun.

We visited Interlaken in late April and took our chances with Hotel Alphorn. With a 2 year old for company, we easily managed the 5 minute walk to the hotel from Interlaken West. The breakfast each morning was more than adequate and the coffee delicious and freshly prepared as soon as we arrived in the dining area. The room was small and my tall husband was not comfortable in the tight shower stall but the ample hot water more than made up for it! Yes, you didn't get the multiple bottles of soap/shampoo/conditioner etc. But it was a liquid soap and it was sufficient, although we always carry our supply. The owner was wonderful and very accommodating and we had no complaints whatsoever. The bed was cozy and the place charming. Like living in a huge mansion and yes, the elevator was a God send!

Excellent location on a quiet street 5 minutes' walk from Interlaken West train station and a large Migros supermarket. You can walk to Interlaken Ost in about 25 minutes but trains and buses linking the two stations are frequent.
The room was small and the shower room tiny but the bed was very comfortable and everything was spotless. There was free wi-fi throughout the building and access to a computer at the front desk also. Breakfast was a simple buffet with a decent choice and coffee was very good.
The staff are very pleasant in particular Christine who is a real asset. She gave us great restaurant recommendations too (Ox and Baeren).

The Alphorn is well-placed, close to Interlaken West train and boat services and with many restaurants a short walk away. The room was spotless and, although small, had everything we needed for our 2 night stay at the end of May. Most of all we enjoyed the friendly, helpful atmosphere and wouldn't hesitate to stay again if we are back in Interlaken. Many thanks to the proprietor who looked after us so well. Alan & Kath
