Reviewed March 28, 2013

the only advantage of this hotel in Interlaken is its location, right in front of Interlaken west train station and free wifi in its lobby.
there are instruction sets for everything..being in the lift, in corridor, in the room, bathroom.
otherwise it is all good, clean, breakfast was good & the staff was helping.

Room Tip: a windowside room faces the railway station

I was here for two nights in March'2011. The best thing about this hotel, it is opposite to station. Rooms really needed renovation that time. Breakfast was also average. The hotel staff
was not available after around 8pm and the vending machine for drinks and snacks was not working properly.

We stayed here for two nights in January 2013, The room was extremely clean and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was very nice and the breakfast was good. The location was excellent and was right across the street from the bus and train stations. We received free bus passes for the length of our stay. We would definitely stay here again. Would also definitely recommend doing the night sledding!

Excellent location, just opp of Interlaken west, breakfast was also equally good but the best thing is the behavior of hotel staffs, Beyond our imagination they were helpful. Room was average. The hotel staffs has helped us all the way including the weather on top of the hill (jungfrau) or lakeride. Breakfast was good. Rooms were quite big. but it is a typically village type mid range budget type hotel. Do not expect high or very modern facility here. But it is beautiful in it's own way. During our stay we were very much satisfied.

My family stayed for 2 evenings in this nicely located hotel. Rooms were small but quite efficiently laid out. The view of the mountains from the room was refreshing.

Breakfast was typical spread - quite comparable to other hotel.

The most pathetic hotel I have ever stayed in. It claims to be a 3 star. Breakfast is real bad. Rooms are tiny. Rude staff.

my husband and I did a backpacking trip of swiss so we were very choosy about the location of hotels rather than the quality coz we weregoing to be out of the hotel most of the time.

Location : the hotel is a backpackers paradise coz its just bang opposite interlaken west station which means not carrying our backpacks for a long time ! phew! Its bang on the small cozy shopping street and the weekly farm market is a 5 min walk away. I picked up some amazing herbs and seasoning from here.

Rooms : Our room was facing the river which flows besides the interlaken station. The overall view was blue river flowing rapidly with a backdrop of mountains. A five star view in budget pricing. One could also see jungfraujoch from the terrace. However it was a pretty small room.

Food : One of the lousiest breakfast I have had. But again there are good options within walking distance.

Overall a good place to just spend the night .

Room Tip: Take the room faing the main road, which will give you a river view.
