Only 5 minutes from the railway station, the Stella offered clean and quiet rooms easily accessible to all the wonders of Interlocken and the Jungfrau area. Breakfast was pleasant and very similar to all hotels in Switzerland. The staff are very friendly and things are kept clean and neat. Rooms are sufficiently large by European standards and the balcony from outr room gave a nice mountain view above the quaint homes. In short, a very good place to stay in Interlocken; nothing unique or special compared to most other offerings in the area but a safe and pleasant place to stay.
On the negative side, the rooms can get warm at night and fans are only available at 5 Swiss Francs per day. Seems like fans should be offered for free to make guests comfortable if needed. Also, the computer useage is 3 francs per two hours and once you log on, the time runs non-stop even if you only use it for 5 minutes. Thus your two, four or six hour sign on time purchase runs out once you log on. No saving the rest for later. This is a bad system compared with other hotels which offer free internet service or a "use what you need at each log in session and save the rest of your time for another log on" policy.
In summary, Stella is a very nice place to stay in Interlocken but avoid like the plague using EXPEDIA to book it. You will likely overpay for the room with Expedia and also get lousy service from Expedia if you have problems. I would never use them again after the hours of frustration they caused me. Contact the Stella direct by email to make reservations...you will be much happier if you do! For that matter, I would skip Expedia for any reservations for anything.
