“Stay somewhere else”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

The picture of this hotel may look good but it is a very old hotel in need of lots of work. Rooms are very dated and the bathroom is a joke. More like a backpackers hotel with loud partying going on into the early hours and with the walls being so thin you will have a hard time sleeping. The breakfast was so poor it was not worth bothering with. On the plus side the receptionist spoke good English and was very friendly and informative. Parking is right outside the hotel main entrance. You get free transport on buses and trains etc around the Interlaken area, but I expect that all the hotels offer this.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

The hotel is about 5 minute bus ride from Interlaken Ost & west stations. Provides a spectacular view of Jungfraugh peak.The rooms are comfortable & cosy although the bathrooms are small but .Breakfast is good enough although u dont get too much options to choose from except the usual bread, butter n jams etc but service is good. Staff is helpful & really guided us how to make most of Interlaken.Enjoyed my stay

Room Tip: The one with the front facing balcony

If you are a budget traveller looking for a simple B&B, then Alpina is worth the money. The receptionist was very helpful ,he spoke english and gave us good information about tourist destinations .We stayed there in a double bedroom with shared bathroon for 3 nights.The room was clean,had linen and bedsheet, the bed was comfortable but the floors were little bit creeky but that didnt bother us because we were looking for a place to sleep.The shared bathrooms too were clean, our room had a balcony with view to the Harder kulm and der was a common balcony with view of the jungfrau..the breakfast was good and wholesome.Theres a bustop nearby and also its just 15-20 min walk to Interlaken ost station.We had a pleasant stay,would go back there again.

The room and bathroom were extremely small. No Fan No AC, very uncomfortable. the hotel is 15 minutes bus ride from the station and again 5 min walk from the bus stop to the hotel. I was so unsatisfied with the hotel that though i had booked the hotel for 4 nights, cancelled my booking the same day i checked in , paid the charges for 1 night even though i did not spend the night there and shifted to best western.

Short stay, accommodation basic, clean, quaint. We had two rooms and both were very differently decorated.
Owner very helpful - found us a parking place when the car park was full. Beautiful location. Tried evening meal, which was excellent and good value. Breakfast was good.
Would certainly visit again if in the area.
Easy to find off the motorway.

Perfect location, Neat rooms, good hosts.

It is well connected from the train stations(Both west and ost) by bus, The bus stop is just a few steps away. You step out of the hotel and you have magnificent views of the mountains right in front. It is also close to the south station where there are trains that take you to the various points in Jungfrau region. For staying there you get a a free travel pass with which you can commute within the interlaken town area by bus or train for free.

Rooms are pretty, and in pink. There was free wireless connection available but the speed was not constant. Our room was facing another hotel and inspite of that I got some good sunrise pictures.
Breakfast is OK. with an assortment of breads, flavored yogurt, eggs and cereals.
The dining area is brightly lit with old trinkets and artifacts just around here and there. tea and coffee is served in silver wear.
Since the weather was bad, we could not plan any trip to the mountain top, Dora and Oliver gave us suggestions about things we could do around the town.

Overall a good place to stay.

Interlaken is an extremely touristy and ridiculously expensive place. This hotel was a nice respite from all of that. We had excellent service from the staff, who helped us with transportation and dealing with an issue with a local vendor. The room was fine, kind of decorated like a 12-year-old girl's bedroom, but with a balcony and a view of the mountains. With the doors open, we could lie in bed with the sun shining on us. The shared bathroom was clean. Breakfast was good, typical continental buffet. You get a free bus pass, which was an unexpected surprise. Free wifi. It's located halfway between the two train stations and a ways south (actually in Matten; don't type Interlaken into Google or you'll end up way out of town), near the youth hostels. Overall, we didn't love Interlaken, but we were very happy with the hotel.
