First of all, all Bernese Oberland visitors, staying in Interlaken is NOT staying in the Alps.
For a true Alps experience, I would recommend staying up in the mountains. We chose Wengen becoz it was enroute to Jungfrau and had train connectivity.
Hotel Baeren is a charming private hotel a short downhill walk from the railway station.
When we reached there on a late Sunday evening, we found our keys ready for us.
Our room was small but charming and tasteful:). It was very very clean. The bathroom was tiny but clean.The hotel had a lot of thoughtful touches like an international plug convertor/free wifi/restaurant lists/coupon books etc. The view from the room and the balcony was breathtaking.
The biggest highlight of this place is the FOOD! I would stay here again just for their 3-course half-board and their amazzing breakfast bread and cheeses.
This place has hands down the most amazing food in Switzerland for a great great price.
We are vegetarians and they were very very accomodating with veggie food.
The couple "Willy and Therese" who run the place and the entire staff was amazzing.
We had only planned to stay here for 2 nites and stay down in Interlaken the third nite to catch an early train...but we enjoyed this place so much..that we extended our stay!
They even packed us lunch as we were leaving early. They did goof up a lil bit here and accidentally packed us meat sandwiches(I believe our package got mixed up with another party of 9 which was leaving that morning too).
Very reasonable compared to interlaken.
Cons: Not the 4 seasons(views and food beat 4 seasons)
No elevator(not a big problem at all as we travelled light and there are only 3 floors i think).
Water is so expensive everywhere in switzerland(the hotel charges a 3 euro water charge per table if u dont buy wine and take the half board).
