“what fantastic place.”
Reviewed July 9, 2010

Having stayed at the De la Paix once before in 2009 We couldnt wait to get back,, friendly and helpful doesnt even get near .. they are brilliant..Too many people want something for nothing these days, like 5 star hotels at 1 star prices..it doesnt happen , great value for money the de La Paix , you get great food, nice rooms,excellent staff, and nothing is too much trouble..
A 4 course meal every night , in our recent stay end june 2010 not one repeat meal and a good selection of food for the buffet breakfast...So not only has it all these attributes, but its got great character too, with the collection of clocks and various fairground slot machines memorabelia.. go on get it booked now !!!!

Stayed June 2010, traveled as a couple

We stayed here for 3 nights and to be honest didnt like it as compared to other hotels that we stayed in Switzerland. Firstly, the service was very cold and this was the hotel with the least warmth that we have experienced in all our international travel. The room we had requested was clearly mentioned as a double room- but what we got was 2 single beds joined togehter - a BIG disappointment. The lady in charge said that there was little that can be done - Once you pay up the hotel there is little that you can do to change it. Other than this.. the bathroom they have in the room is an engineering marvel. I am thankful that the ensured that we dont stand and crap - its that tiny- just enough for you to sit..Location too isnt that close.. one of the farthest to walk from the Interlaken West station - this is differnet from the Interlaken OST station. But if you have swiss pass you hardly care as all the travel is covered.
Overall NOT recommended.. Interlaken has a LOT of hotels and they are all listed at the station itself with the ones that are available shown in green with a number to call them and book.. So you have got a LOT of choice- and can avoid this.

One thing that we would want to inform you is that in Europe a double bed means 2 single beds put together.. You got to mention "One Big Bed" to ensure that the hotel reserves that for you :)

We have just returned from two weeks of travelling around Europe with no accommodation booked beforehand. We stopped in Interlaken, at the Hotel De la Paix and asked if they had a room, which they did. I had my phrase book with me but admit to being very relieved that the family who run the hotel spoke English.

The hotel had such a lovely friendly feel about it. We never used the sitting room but it looked very cosy. The staircase up to our room on the second floor was full of interesting articles from a rocking horse to old "slot machines".

Our room was bright and clean. The bathroom was incredibly tiny - a toilet, wash had basin and shower cubicle - but the shower was good and it was again very clean. There was a nice spacious balcony too.

We had free wi-fi access which was a bonus as I travelled with my lap top though I believe there was a communal computer you could use downstairs.

The hotel was situated close enough to town to walk in in a few minutes but not close enough to be noisy or in the hustle and bustle.

A really pleasant stay all in all, we had two very pleasant nights there.

this hotel is ideally located near the main street and Interlaken West railway station. We were greeted by Gillian, who speaks perfect english (i think she was english) . She was very helpful with all of our requests and questions throughout our stay, including printing our boarding passes for our return flight, she only charged us CHF2, which was for the use of the internet. Our room was a little small, but my mum, who travelled with us, had a very nice room for one, which had a double bed, shower and bath (we only had a shower). The breakfast room was very nice, and the breakfast food good too, but we were a little disappointed that it was the same choice every day, the only hot item was scrambled eggs. Other breakfast food included rolls, ham and cheese, bread for toast, coissants, cereal, musli, yogurt, fresh fruit and preserves. There is also a comfortable lounge area, bar and outdoor seating area. We had a very comfortable stay.

A comfortable and freindly hotel located close to the West Station and a short walk to the centre of Interlaken. The room we had was fairly large with a balcony, and was light and well decorated. The breakfast was good, plenty of choice and the four course evening meal was excellent with a good, varied menu. The collection of clocks in the hotel is remarkable. The facilities are good with lounge, bar area,English papers, washing and drying machines and an ice maker, also a sitting area in the garden. The owners are excellent hosts and made our holiday extremely enjoyable.

This hotel is in a quiet residential area, but within easy walking distance of Interlaken West train station. All the buses also stop here. Another bonus is that the Migros supermarket is just round the corner from the hotel. I was very happy with the hotel, my room was comfortable, and larger than some single rooms I have stayed in. The food was good, also the service, especially from the dining room staff. The breakfast buffet was not as large as some hotels, but there was plenty there. An on-site laundry is also useful. The only downside was having to pay single room supplement when the room was only large enough for one person. However I hope to be back in Interlaken next year and would be happy to return here.
