“It was good until...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

My rating was going to be "average" until I witnessed an exchange between the receptionist and a client (continued below). The rooms are a bit dated and the floor creaks, the only lights in the rooms are 3 desk lamps and a dingy light in the bathroom which is a bit small, the in-room wifi was working fine but became patchy through our 3 day stay. The location is good, breakfast was generous and the receptionist was pleasant, until just now when she was rude towards an Asian client asking for hot water. Instead of just helping her out, she was quite rude towards the guest who had to explain that she just wanted some hot water to ease her flu symptoms. As soon as the guest left she snickered to another English guest "what are the chances that they`re going to make noodles in their room?", and continued to chat over a drink (while on the job?). Granted there`s a lot of Asian tourists here and even I get sick of seeing them (as an Asian myself), it really gets on my nerves when people are rude to paying customers.

Stayed here for a week in August, very friendly staff & especially Edina, receptionist, who was very helpful & always cheerful.
Plenty of breakfast including their own fresh Alpine butter & cheese & lovely fresh bread. Scrambled or fried eggs cooked to order & fresh fruit available.
Ideal situation in a quiet road and short walk to Interlaken West railway & bus stations.
Not so keen on where we had to leave our room keys when we went out as easily accessible to anyone walking in especially if front desk not manned.

Stayed here for 4 nights in early August. We had reserved a room with a balcony, and view of Jungfrau. Property is located short walk from Interlaken West station - easy to navigate even with luggage. Across the street is a Co-Op grocery store which we found very handy for picking up ready made lunch and bottled water. Also handy for wine and beer purchases. We enjoyed the balcony, especially as the room itself was quite small for the 3 of us. Of course, we did not spend much time in the room, but having the balcony as an extra space to sit is highy recommended. The main bed was large and comfy, our son's bed was really just a single matress on a wooden frame on the floor. Fortunately, he's a young teen so this wasn't a problem, but for the price we paid, a bed basically on the floor isn't what was expected.

Breakfast is included and a good selection of fresh bread, fruit, yougurt, cheese, cereals, juice, hard boiled eggs - and eggs made to order on request. Certainy sufficient.

As others have mentioned, no lift so you have to be prepared/able to carry luggage up stairs. Most often no one at the front desk; the door to the hotel is wide open-really anyone can just walk in and up to the rooms.

Bathroom extremely small; clean and servicable. Overall, a convenient place to stay and though this was our second stay we likely would look elsewhere next time and explore options that may offer larger rooms and full beds!

A traditional swiss style hotel. Good location, about 8 minutes walk from Interlaken West Station.
No lift and therefore you should carry your luggage upstairs. Our room is spacious and with a balcony. For downside, the bathroom is very small. There is only on light in the room, so it is not bright enough. No tea, coffee and kettle is provided, so we can't make hot drink . Breakfast is on average but not many choice. Receptionist is very friendly and provide information in details. Lugguage can be stored in their rest area which is open and no one help to look after that. Overall is a very nice and good hotel.

Our first visit to interlaken and we were captured by the whole place. Post hardermannli has friendly staff, good breakfast, laundry, wifi, laptops etc. our room had a large deck and so much space. Highly recommend a stay here. Some decor is 'authentic' looking and could be considered dated, but it ads to the charm.

We were a large family and needed a suite/family room and we were offered one. But it turned out to be just a normal small double room divided into two! Two things to be wary of before going in for this hotel. Firstly, no lifts - so if you have heavy large bags be prepared to carry them upstairs. Secondly, no airconditioning. Of course most hotels dont have it in Switzerland, but the size of the rooms could make it difficult in those few hot summer days.

However, the staff, specially the lady at the reception was very helpful and cooperative and the breakfast quite nice. The rooms were clean enough and tidy.The location was convenient as it was just five minutes walk to the train station and shopping area.
