The Victoria Jungfrau is an icon in Switzerland, an old palace which has been kept up to date very well. It retains the old palace feel but is well living in the XXI century. All public areas are gorgeous, very well maintained (no "worn" feeling at all anywhere, not sure what some other reviewers were expecting, yes there is no plexiglass or glass everywhere, if it is what you were expecting), you are stepping into history without the old feel other swiss historic hotels unfortunately have. The spa/pool area is simply gorgeous, the rooms quite large for swiss standard and furniture tasteful. There are indeed many Asian tourists, but this is true for the entire Interlaken area, and we should be grateful there are here, as many historic hotels would otherwise not survive.
We only tried one restaurant, the Terrasse, highly rated on Gault-et-Millau, and it was as expected delicious. I thought the price tags on some dishes slightly too high (the one lone scampi with its lone scallop at CHF 42 was a bit of a shocker), despite the high guide ratings, but we had a great dinner.
I found the breakfast disappointing. As five stars, I am expecting something better than a single buffet, albeit well stocked, for example with eggs on demand by a chef, I think there is vast room for improvement there.
Overall, a memorable experience of walking and sleeping into an historic alpine icon, breathing history, but well up to the XXI century. Excellent food and awesome views and location. Lower your expectations with regards to breakfast and do not miss to spend time in the spa/pool area, it is outstanding.
It is not a palace anymore (you would not find a junior suite at $700 in a swiss palace !!!!!) but it is an awesome grande dame and worth every penny. I actually found it quite well priced for what is on offer.
