We booked this hotel at the very last minute, after realising that we'd booked our original hostel (Backpacker's Villa) for the wrong dates. This was the last reasonably priced hotel available, and we're glad we stayed here.
It's ok, not spectacular. We stayed in Room 40, which is a three person room, and doesn't face the station. I had read previously that noise was a factor, but given that we were looking out towards Interlaken Ost and the town park, rather than the Interlaken West station, noise was not a factor and we slept with the windows open. Of course, it helps when the other two travellers are Deaf!
Breakfast was adequate and as someone mentioned, you can pay a bit extra for some freshly cooked eggs. Staff were friendly enough, but don't expect any exhuberance. Great location, clean room, although a bit musty. We only spent our time in it to nap or sleep overnight, so it was adequate. If you plan to spend time in the room, then don't bother with this hotel and find yourself something a bit nice.
Would stay here again, as it was a good value, and in a great location.
