My husband and I recently spent 6 nights here and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Christina and her staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome, and couldn't do enough to make our visit to Interlaken a memorable one. Our en suite room was clean, bright and very comfortable. The hotel is a few minutes walk from the centre of town and Interlaken West train station, with a lovely view of Harder Kulm and all the paragliders coming over. We would be very happy to stay here again!

A small hotel in a quiet part of the town, but only five minutes walk from the station and shops. We were greeted with a smile and a welcome and the next day Christine (who was not there when we checked in) introduced herself to us. It is true to say that Christine and her staff work hard to make your stay a happy one and will make suggestions about places to see and things to do.
The hotel is small, simple and very clean. It would not suit those who want the international group hotel experience, but it will be thouroughly enjoyed by those who want a clean simple, quiet hotel.
The Interlaken card, which came with the room ensured that we could travel free around the town with both bus and train during our stay - an unexpected bonus.
The kettle (plus coffee and tea) in the room was also an added bonus and useful after a day/evening out.
The late night key system worked perfectly and ensured that access was always available but your room key was always secure.
Breakfast was a simple , enjoyable buffet.
I would have no second thoughts about recommending this hotel to my friends - a little gem.

Room Tip: The area is quiet - so sleep is not a problem. A lift is also available if required

Great B&B! Excellent breakfasts in the morning and good advice for our day going up to the Jungfraujoch. It was very warm in our room as we were there during the summer and most places do not have air conditioning. I only wish we would have stopped in Grindelwald since we took one route up the mountain and a different one coming down.

First of all thanks a ton to Ms. Christina, love her to the core, Interlaken been sucha blessed place and this hotel was like cherry on top of the cake. Christina was very friendly ,helpful and lovely all the time. We initially didnt inform her about the our son "the little fellow" as she calls him :) , but she arranged everything well for our comfortable stay. Hotel is located 5 minutes away from migros and 5 to 10 mnts away rom interlaken west railway station. Rooms are neat,clean and spacious. Classic and tasty breakfast is provided. love the location, loved the place and we had a great time there. Ms. Christina suggested us a gem of swiss, which we were really unaware, "Grindelwald", everyone might have gone there while going to Jungfrau, but it is a beautiful small village by itself where you can do mountain hiking and, its breath takingly beautiful. She even arranged for my para- glyding adventure, which was one of the most beautiful experince i ever had. Overall, we were so happy with service provided, and looking forward to go back soon :)

With love,
Muneer & family ( Muneer, Jinshy and Faaz "The little fellow" )

Hotel is really good. Clean spacious rooms near Interlaken west station, 5 minutes walk to MIGROS and restaurants. Was a little tricky to find. Stayed for one night with wife. Less choice for Breakfast but its sufficient and delicious. Staff are very good, as soon as you check-in they will give all the details of town and you also get a free public transport pass for your stay. Would definitely stay here again. PS:As given in the website the reception closes at 7.30PM, so you have to check-in before that, but by the time we reached it was 8.40PM but they were still waiting for us. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: We stayed in the corner room. Spacious and sunny.

The staff are amazing! Everyone was so helpful & friendly. The location is good. Just a few minutes walk from the train station. The rooms are small but well presented and VERY clean with tea & coffee facilities. Elsewhere there is a ice machine you can use and a toaster in the breakfast room.

The Alphorn was within easy walking (200meters) of the West Interlaken train station , shops & cafes. We really enjoyed our stay of 2 nights. Visit to Jungfrau was wonderful, it was very busy the day we visited but trains were frequent & crowd management good. The walk along the river from Ost Interlaken was very enjoyable. We had dinner before returning to a warm friendly welcome from the staff at Alphorn. The staff were extremely helpful with any requests, everyone was greeted with a smile each morning & great coffee. Our room was nice & clean, though the bathroom was very tiny it was adequate.

Room Tip: A room with a garden outlook would be preferable to the street-side
