We had a huge room with a lovely view of the river and mountains and the shower was lovely with high pressure and plenty of instant hot water .Our room was lovely and quiet . There was a safe in the room but no facilities for tea or coffee making , I think maybe you could do this at reception but we didn't bother , there was also a microwave for guest use in the reception area . Internet connection is available but at 5 Swiss Francs for 24 hours use . A free card for train and bus use in the Interlaken area is available, just ask at reception . Interlaken Est is only 10 minutes walk away from Interlaken West but you can catch the train there for free . The best shopping area is in Interlaken west, minutes walk from the hotel . This hotel is also 3 minutes walk from the station.
It was a bit unnerving when you come out of the lift at night and the corridoor to your room is in darkness, the lights are on a sensor but take time to come on and not all were working . However we did feel nothing but safe at all times during our stay .
i was stay last week in this hotel,, the staff was very kindly and helpful.. i like this hotel.. the location is perfect just 2 mint to the train station.. good value of money
the breakfast is boring
Great location, very close to Interlaken West train station especially if you are arriving from Basel/Thun/Spietz. Please note that most mountain excursions depart from Interlaken East though, as do the ferries for Lake Brienz. Beautiful mountain and canal vistas from rooms. We had a pleasant stay in a very scenic town.
The hotel decor, bathrooms and rooms are basic and dated. Breakfast disappointing regarding variety, crockery and ambiance. Staff are friendly, although are very casual. As with everything in Switzerland, value for money not great and don't be disappointed with what you get considering what you pay, compared to other neighboring European countries.
The location is fine, but the rest is fair. The breakfast mail is poor and always the same kinds?.
Need renew everythings.
The location of the hotel is just beside the Interlaken west main train station. The decoration is romantic and room is quite big (for double room only). The hotel also offers an Interlaken travel card. WiFi is not free, but the charge is reasonable, 5CHF for whole stay.
The chinese style restaurant is not good, it is not really chinese flavour since it is run by a Korean.
Very peaceful & amazing location in front of lake & just walking distance from Interlaken West railway station. Nice view in the night. Hotel staff (specially receptionist was very helpful) & overall very nice experience.
Very close to the station (Interlaken West) and a nice view from my room ...
Old. An erotic bar is at -1.
Stuf at ther are very nice but the room aren't good place is wonderful on the river it is near from east train station and mcdonald market it full of chinese
Clean just not good and ther is no softy box
excellent location superb view from our room (4-bedder) very decent breakfast i wont put this under 'dislike' as i think it's a family run restaurant: but if there could be some person at reception to help qith queries as well as service requests, it'd be great. but since it's family run - often there was no one at reception and we had to 'ring a bell' (literally) for service. :-) but my family and i loved our stay - the view is super!!!
The rooms were clean and I found the staff to be perfectly amiable. Excellent location and a good price (for Interlaken)
The hotel looks a little dated and the decor is somewhat disparate. After saying that the rooms were clean and had a flat-screen TV with BBC 1 and BBC 2. The floors are wooden and this can lead to noise being a problem if the hotel is busy.
I like the outdside shape of the hotel,the view around the hotel,the location excellent and the free wifi at lobby
I didn't like the old furniture,the light sensor in coridors is bad because lights start slowly,dogs are allowed to sit on lobby chairs and the wier thing that after 11pm all staf are gone even from the reception so no one is there if you need something
It's a no frills hotel, with a pretty average breakfast....but given it's price and location, it was amazing!! Rooms were decent sized with a lovely view from the small balcony.
Central Location, sumptuous breakfast with a variety of cuisine, large rooms, safety.
Stairs to reach Reception from the street level, elderly and people with disability will struggle, Bath / shower rooms could do with brighter lighting.
