Harder Minerva Hotel
Ranked #35 of 46 Interlaken B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 2, 2008

This is a great location to visit the town of Interlaken. Itis right in the middle. Good breakfast every morning. If you get a double bed, it is actually 2 beds pushed together. Super close to the tourist office. Beautiful view of the mountains from our room.

Although only a 2 star hotel it had everything you needed, was very clean and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The food was very good and although there was no choice on the menu, they were happy to provide an alternative if needed. It is in a very central position between both the stations and lakes. We hired the free bikes provided by the hotel and enjoyed a day around Lake Brienz.

My experience in May 2007 was not good. The bathroom stank and the staff insisted it was too much cleaning fluid. When I pointed out there was a hole where the exhaust fan should have been she pretended not to understand. The bathroom door did not close so the stink pervaded the bedroom. No apology or explanation - just a grim "no other room available ! "

The bathroom was very small and dark and gave a very old look. Shower was bad. Bed and mattress were pathetic.

The hotel is located on a side street but very near shops and a park. It's about a five minute walk from the West train station. Our room was on the fourth floor which meant a walk up a few stairs since the elevator only goes to the 3rd floor. The room was basic and could use a little sprucing up but it was clean and the bathroom had new fixtures and paint. The hotel personnel were friendly and helpul and we enjoyed our dinner there even though it was a little bit expensive.

To find the hotel from the train station: Walk away from the lake, crossing the train tracks. You'll see a large board with a tourist map. Hotels are given a number on the map. If my memory is correct, Harder MInerva is number 73. After looking at the map, go in the direction opposite the map bearing slightly to the left or center. You'll see arrows with hotel numbers on them to help guide you.

The room was a bit stuffy, the bread for breakfast a bit too plain. The steak dinner was bloody but it really (--). You HAVE to try that steak dinner. The bathroom was attractive. The hallway, foyer and restaurant decoration was cool, the bedroom maybe a bit plain, but it was all clean. The Swiss cheeses in foil rap were really good. It's close to everything, just down the street from a bank with ATM machine, nice view of the mountains, shops across the street where you can buy shirts with funny slogans, chocolate, and Swiss Army knives with many different kinds of colors and extensions. The restaurant is expensive but affordable, and a lot of the stuff is worth it, though I'd advise you to buy drinks somewhere else and discreetly bring them in and drink them.

The Harder Minerva was on a quiet side street very close to everything. I mean Interlaken is really quite small so no doubt everything is close. The room we had was on the top floor, and needed just a little bit of care. The blind on the window wouldnt stay shut, so light poured in. A little hard for sleeping. It was also quite a HOT room and not really suited for tall people as the roof was quite low. Everything was clean though and breakfast was good.
