I'm slightly surprised because of the kind of reviews that this place has been given. The location and rooms were really good, but I found the place very indifferent and cold. I would think that the whole idea of staying in a bed and breakfast place was that it isn't an impersonal experience. But the hosts weren't really that helpful or, for that matter, available to provide any tips, or guidance -- considering that Interlaken is also such a small place; and they weren't even home half of the time, especially not even when we arrived. This meant we had to carry the luggage all by ourselves to the second floor, especially a problem, since my mother is a senior citizen and has a back problem. There was no opportunity to discuss, ask, or talk about anything with the hosts. The host also wasn't exactly sure of which bus would come from the station to the hostel! For the location, I think this is a complete waste of resources.
There was no Internet terminal available for those without a laptop. There was also no soap in the bathroom! We got it after we asked, but I think it's a little strange, since people traveling on a journey can't be expected to carry any soap with them. The breakfast was sketchy to say the least. I wish there were vegetables and fruits, or at least egg or something warm available. There was only cheese and bread and butter and jam and juice and conflakes and coffee and tea. The usual tinned, routine, packaged stuff. There was nothing fresh and hot, or anything out of the ordinary. I enjoyed the view and the rooms, but that's about it.
