The room was not so nice as we expected, although it has a great view. The noise in the hotel was intolerable, we called many times the reception but with no response. The breakfast was very poor and it need immediate improvement. There was a dog in the reception and it was not calm at all which made us uncomfortable.... More

Stayed there for 4 nights. The hotel location is good as it is very near to the train station and other shopping outlets. Beautiful scenery from the room as it's facing the river and the mountains. Breakfast was ok. But u have to pay for the use of wifi. First night there's no wifi reception at all. Overall it's ok.

Stayed for 5 nights. The only positive part is that its next to the rail station. The place is old and have worn out. The room size was big enough with 2 balconies for family with 2 kids. The view from the room is good. In case you plan to stay, have no expectations. They serve basic breakfast that runs... More

We reserved 3 nights here and checked out next day. The place is old and decaying with spare beds in the halls.Went around the corner(also next to the train station)to the Best Western where we spent 2 nights in the most perfect hotel. The owners were the warm and cordial. Good breakfast too.

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.

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.

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... More

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... More
