This is the best hotel in Interlaken location wise. Don't go here expecting a 4 or 5 star amenity. You only pay in Interlaken for location. Jungfraujoch, lauterbrunnen, murren-all beautiful places are nearby, you just have to go to interlaken east first which is 5 min train ride.

It was one of worst experience i had with hotels. I've booked 5 nights at the hotel, but only stayed for one night. The hotel is very old, not clean, the furniture and the bed sheets are smelling, at night there is no staff at the reception, no refrigerator at the room and the parking is a mess. It was...

For a 3 star hotel this was excellent value. Have read criticisms by some people, but they seem to want 5 star quality for 3 star price, Sure the carpets in the entry could be replaced, but who is going to sleep on them. The room was fantastic; real old world standards and it was great to wake up to...

Location is very close to Interlaken West Train station and also nice view with river in front of the hotel. Timing for breakfast from 5:30 to 10:00 is very flexible accommodating the one who has to catch early train. Food is the same everyday and cold. Furnishing is very old and worn out, needs renovated urgently. Lighting at the corridor...

In my opinion, it is not a 3 star hotel. I think it was a wonderful hotel in the past, but now it is a little bit scary. Everything is too old and it is clear that they don't make maintenance. There are armchairs broken everywhere and parking is a completely mess. Don't park there. Breakfast is nor good. Bread...

Great location, but that is it. The hotel have a great charme from the outside but the inside DO NOT have the same standard - maybe 50 years ago! The hotel is worn and used. It really needs a makeover before I can recommend it to anybody. The hotel (due to Switzerland) is expensive and we were there on a...

Stayed for 2 nights with my family in June 2014. Stayed in 3rd floor with balcony. The hotel location is excellent with a view of Interlaken west railway station, bus and a small stream of clear blue water running near the hotel. Interkane west is only 2 min. walk. Hotel Staff are very cooperative. Breakfast is very good. Water kettle...

We stayed here for three nights last week. Wish I had read the other reviews before booking. The hotel is pricey even by Swiss standards and it is run down. The breakfast-included- is horrendous. There is a charge for Wifi, which is just offensive gouging in my opinion. Don't bother with this place. I should point out that the housekeeping...

It is not worth a mention. The hotel's star rating needs to reviewed else hapless travellers are being taken for a ride. Their are several nice places in Interlaken and around so don't waste your money staying in this place . Room, food, customer service, amenities, all deserve a 0 on 5 rating
