sorry for the late review. i've been there in last april 2012. it was a great experience staying here. it is just 10 minutes walking distance from the interlaken ost station. ( we have to go around the lake, and cross with the bridge situated about 2km from the station even though river lodge just behind the station. if there is a bridge connect directly from the station with river lodge, then, it will be 2 minutes only! haha).
for the service, it was great! the receptionist, answered all the questions and even provided us with some cooking utensils for FREE!! we just need to ensure we returned them back in good condition. so helpful! even the kitchen and the toilet was always clean. we even enjoyed our hot shower! the shower is not inside room. it is outside room. and for me, that is not a problem, because i felt like living in hostel during my high school!
the location is very great. away from the city. everything around you are just nature. trees, lake, waterfall. it was so calm!! at night, you just can hear the peaceful air breeze. it was just so nice!
about the room, yes, it is quite small. but, as long as i can sleep with blanket for few hours, it is fine. hehe.
overall, this place was good. but, it is not suitable for family. suitable for traveling among friends, who are not so high standard, who can easily adapt with any kind of situation. Switzerland is a nice place to visit several times. and of course i will come again. and definitely will recommend this place to my friends. =)
