“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and used it as a base for various rail journeys round Switzerland. We were greet very warmly by the manager Peter and had a superior double room with a balcony which overlooked the street. The hotel was only 3 minutes from Interlaken West which was a great advantage. The other station Interlaken Ost was a pleasant 20 minute stroll away. Great breakfast which offered hot and cold food, including miso soup, rice and curry sauce, catering for an international clientel. Friendly and informative staff helped to make our stay very pleasant.

Room Tip: Pay a little more and get a superior room.

We stayed here for two nights during part of our tour time through Switzerland. We were pleasantly surprised at how large and spacious the rooms were, especially because ours had a separate open living and seating area. The breakfast served each morning was delicious and comprehensive, and had many choices for international guests. It was also very close to the main shopping area, and had easy access to the west train station.

We spent three nights in a superior double room overlooking the street. Very comfortable and clean with excellent facilities. A very good breakfst with plenty of choice. On two evenings we had the half board set meal which were very good value and were imaginative and well presented. All the staff very pleasant and helpful Well located near the West rail station and supermarket

My wife and I, stayed at Hotel Krebs couple of years ago for our honeymoon.

We stayed at the honeymoon suite..it was an amazing room..The decor was little overboard for me..but it was a great room..they also gave us a complimentary bottle of Champagne with fruit platter.

The location was perfect as the train station is just 2 minutes away from the hotel.

The staff was very friendly as well..

Booked this hotel because the Jungfrau was booked up due to the SEF meeting they were hosting. I read a few reviews on Trip Advisor of the Hotel Krebs and was suspicious of the wait staff due to reading reviews. However I never experienced any issues and was always treated well and asked if needed anything further. When I went out on my bike for a 5-6 hour ride they were always wishing me well and asking about my adventure upon my return. I had a rear facing room and it was nice a quiet. The room was a superior double because I needed room for my bike equipment. Breakfast was more than adequate and was always fresh. Never ate in their dinning for dinner but heard from the locals it was very good.

Room Tip: Pick a room in the rear if possible

This hotel was a midway stop on our trip through Switzerland, starting in Bern, finally through Austria, ending with Vienna. Interlaken is kind of a multi cultural town, unlike other swiss cities. Lots of young people come here on vacation, and it attracts lots of outdoors types. It offers great water and hiking activities in summer and skiing in the winter. The big draw here is the close proximity of the Alps, and the famous Jungfrau peak and Piz Gloria, where the one time James Bond actor George Lazenby filmed perhaps the least popular Bond film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". Piz Gloria and JungFrau are two separate day trips, and well worth the visit. If you plan to visit both mountains, buy the multi day ticket which gives you trams and rail and cable car to the locations, usually less than the price to visit just the Jungfrau alone. The hotel is well located, just one block from the InterlakenWest Train depot, so you can easily walk with roller bags or take the bus just one stop. IAbout one mile between the east and west train stations. The hotel offers you a coupon card that entitles you to free bus travel in the town, which includes both train stations, and it provides pretty good discounts for tours etc. The room came with everything we wanted, coffee maker, safe, free water every day, free wifi (but did not work in the 3rd floor room as the signal was too weak) extra towels, bathrobes, slippers, and our room had a small balcony facing the mountain, which is something you will want to pay for, its a great view. This is not a 5 star hotel, but the true 5 star hotel, the Victoria Jungfrau was 3x as expensive, so this seemed like a pretty decent place and we were not disappointed. Good reviews by other travellers convinced us. The front desk staff were freindly, and our breakfast was included, and it was very good... a full buffet with eggs, bacon, pastries, juice, cereals, and items that some foreigners might want like Miso soup and baked beans? Oh well. We came in May and this coincided with the travel holidays of lots of middle eastern and Indian visitors. Room was clean and service was good each day. A few glitches, as our tub drain did not stay open, and the shower attachment leaked, but after a day they were fixed. At night, their restaurant has a strong cheese fondue smell, which we don't like, so we did not eat dinner there, but that smell was not present at lunch or breakfast. All in all, we got what we paid for and again, strongly recommend the balcony room facing the jungfrau mountain. Lots of charm and slightly creaky wood floors remind you that you are staying in a place with history.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the Jungfrau and get a balcony on a higher floor if possible. There's street...
