Reviewed September 5, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Alphorn on our recent trip to Interlaken. The hotel is perfectly situated close to transport, restaurants and shops. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The lovely staff were very happy to assist us, particularly in helping us find good local restaurants and give advice on local attractions.

We stayed here for 3 nights and found it to be very clean and with spacious rooms. They gave us rooms with balconies overlooking the lush mountains. The staff where very friendly and very helpful with places to eat and things to see. I would definitely recommend this hotel as it was in a great location close to all amenities . We will hopefully be back again.

We stayed here for a single night during a Europe driving vacation.
Check in was perfect, very helpful person on the desk with many recommendations for the night and day.
The room was very clean and had a really nice modern design.
The hotel lent us umbrellas for the evening stroll, which was required as all it did while we were there is rain!
Great place to stay, 5 min walk into town, highly recommended.

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights in August 2013.

We stayed in room 101 which has a balcony facing away from the road and towards the valley. As some other reviewers have mentioned, this room (and I think the one above it) serves as an emergency exit and therefore has a key to the door stored in a locked glass box outside. I'd just like to reassure readers that this was fine and no problem for us at all. We saw that in other places in Switzerland and we had no trouble with it during our stay.

The room was very, very clean and had a comfortable bed plenty of storage space and a small but functional bathroom. We also had a sitting area and a small fridge, kettle etc. Wifi was free, fast and very useful.

Breakfast is included within the room rate and is typical for a small size Swiss hotel. The quality was good and we appreciated it being included within the room rate.

The hotel owner is a lady called Christine who greeted us on arrival and spoke to us several times during our stay. She was very friendly and helpful with planning trips and giving us information about weather etc. All the staff we spoke to were just as helpful and it made a real difference to have a personal, friendly reception.

Interlaken has a huge range of hotels, many of which are at the premium end. If I was planning another visit and intended to stay in the hotel a lot, I might choose somewhere with more facilities. If I was planning a sight-seeing trip and spending most of the time out and about, I would return here without any hesitation.

Thanks to Christine and her team for a great stay- we hope to be back!

Low cost but really friendly with no hassle and good food - breakfast that is. Nothing seemed too much trouble and staff and owners went out of their way to assist. The hotel is conveniently located near Interlaken West railway station and by changing at Interlaken East, can go straight to Grindelwald. I shall definitely go there again.

Room Tip: Book well in advance.

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
