We knew this was a budget hotel when we booked, but were really pleased. My friend and I paid a supplement to have a room each. The rooms were of a good size, clean, well equipped and even had a balcony. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the meals at breakfast and dinner were good. You can easily walk to the town and a after dinner walk to the canal was very pleasant. Just one small thing the common areas could do with a little makeover, but it did not spoil our enjoyment of the hotel
The hotel was very well placed, being 10 minutes walk from Interlaken West and 15 minutes walk from Interlaken Ost railway stations. We also had free bus travel as we stayed in Interlaken and this was excellent. Public transport in Switzerland is fantastic, its frequent and always turns up on time.
Great trips can easily be done from this hotel, Jungfrau, Syhnige Platte, Giessbach Waterfalls, The lakes, Cycling. So much to do and a week was not long enough.
The Swiss pass is a must if you plan to use transport and go up the mountains, it gave us a 50% discount on the Jungfrau and many other savings including bike hike.
TOP TIP: Try the sleighing on the Jungfrau.15 Swiss francs for as many goes as you like. The best purchase of the holiday. Prepare to get covered in snow.
