“A great base for your trip to Interlaken”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

We found this hotel online and booked it based on other good reviews on Trip adviser for a trip the last week of March 2014. We have certainly not been disappointed. From the moment that we arrived we have been well looked after, being greeted by Christin the owner who patiently explained about Interlaken and the surrounding area which was great since this is our first visit. The room is spotless, well furnished and comfortable. The bathroom appears brand new. Free WiFi works like a dream. The breakfast is typical continental- cereals, breads fruit and cold meats and as much tea or coffee as you can handle. The bottom line is this is a great spot to use as a base and I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

Room Tip: 2nd floor facing street to get a glimpse of the alps when you wake up.

My partner and I stayed in the double bedroom on the second floor for 4 nights...amazing! Great view of the mountains, and the hotel amenities were clean and modern. The breakfast of breads, meats, cheeses and cereals was ample. It is also in an excellent location, within walking distance to the train station and the Main Street. Highly recommend!

We choose Switzerland as our honeymoon destination. This hotel was chosen primary for its location and lovely rooms. Ms Christine was very helpful and allocate us the room as we reach interlaken. We appreciated her advice when the weather was bad for jungfrau trip on our first day. Thanks for making our honeymoon a pleasant one!

This hotel is small, but clean and convenient to the Interlaken West train station. We had a late train and walked about 4 blocks to this hotel. The hotel was a reasonable price and very decent. The room was very clean and basic. The owner was very kind, caring, and concerned for her guests. She called us to make sure that we would have no problem with late arrival. She greeted us at breakfast. The breakfast was good with fruits, breads, jellies, and juices. Our room had a shower only, but that was very adequate for the two of us. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

My wife and i stayed there with two of our friends for a one night in july. Christine, the owner, promptly replied to my post- booking queries through email and was really helpful even before we reach there. We were late catching a train from Lucerne and were late to reach Interlaken, but it wasnt difficult find the place. We walked from the interlaken west train station with our medium sized luggage. Rooms were spacious and had a tv and wifi Bathroom was well equipped, felt more comfortable than most of the hotels althouth the building seems bit old. Had to open a window to get some fresh cold air in the midnight as it was a very warm day in July as there was no air conditioner. Had a good breakfast where Christine personally attended to us. We opted to keep our luggage at the interlaken west train station lockers as we were going to Lauterbrunnen and coming back later today go catch the train to Bern-Paris. Christine was very knowledgeable about the area and helpful for our short trip to Wengen and Lauterbrunnen. Actually felt like home at Hotel Alphorn and would stay there again, definitely for a few more days.

This is a charming hotel with a charming owner. We had booked our accommodation there a couple of months beforehand. At short notice our son decided to join us in Switzerland for a few days. The owner had a free room for him on our first night there but not for the second night. However she organised accommodation for him herself, at a B&B close by, making everything easy for us. Our room was lovely. The breakfast was delicious. The hotel is a short walk from the Interlaken West railway station, so is very convenient if you are travelling by train, as we were. A big plus is that there is excellent WIFI throughout the hotel ... and you don't need to constantly log in again and again as you do in so many hotels!

Room Tip: Book early because the hotel is small.

Stayed one night with parents before went to Jungfrau, small building, maybe has only about 25 rooms, nothing fancy, but very sweet. Nice home style breakfast, the owner, a senior sweet lady, was there very early to prepare breakfast and give clients suggestions about trip to Jungfrau. very cute she painted all the hard boiled eggs, make them so beautiful, just to delight everyone at morning.
Highly recommend to stay there if the destination is Jungfrau, just about 50km from Bern, everything at Bern is over priced and service is incredible bad.
