I was a little concerned reading the reviews for this place but decided to still give it a try. Mabye we were lucky, but I didn't find anything to complain about. Yes the rooms are small and very little parking infront. But otherwise got a plain double room (140bed) for an excellent price considering the location. Stayed one saturday night...

This is the worst hotel I have ever seen in my life because 1. They charge for everything. Providing a good towel at least is responsibility of the hotel ,however they were demanding additional amount for that that too as a rent. Further for a locker in cmmmon room , they are demanding extra money for locker. 2. The rooms...

I booked two nights here with 3 other friends because it was recommended to us by someone who stayed here last summer. The place wasn't hard to find, cheap, and had a private room that would fit the 4 of us together. I didn't feel like the room was very clean and was even hesitant sleeping on the sheets that...

We booked for two nights, two weeks in advance. but knowing that we might be late for check in hours, we contacted the owners so they would provide us with a code for the key box as written in the instructions: NADA - no answer for two weeks. Eventually we arrived to the place at 19:30 - still in normal...

Hotel is not hard to find situated just a few hundred meters away from Interlaken West train station. Stayed for 2 days, the room was cozy for two person. Little room to move around though. Everything else is perfect.

We had booked this hostel for 4 nights from other website's reviews. We reached there on the 1st day & found this hostel to be in a pathetic condition. There were not enough bathrooms & toilets for all rooms & people. (Imagine 1 bathroom & toilet combined for a dorm of 6 people) There is no kitchen facility as well....

I was skeptical about this last minute reservation but seeing an average rating on Tripadvisor I thought it would be fine. But I was horribly mistaken. We arrived early and wanted to drop in our luggage. I politely said "We wanted to drop our luggage". The lady at the reception said :Drop it, we don't have a luggage room". I...

Good value, for Interlaken. The location im unterseen is nice, as its very accessible to fentral Interlaken, while still a bit off the beaten path. Room was clean, bed was comfortable, reception helpful. The Coop is right around the corner too.

“Though some rooms say they have a "bathroom down the hall," Terry ensured we had an ensuite bathroom. So I would definitely request this if you have the options.”
