          Great view of the falls that thunder right outside your rooms, attentive staff, great food, fantastic breakfast, not much to do in the area, but well worth one night to explore the falls.Take the boat and the tram to get there!

          Fly either to Geneva or Zurich and take the train to interlaken and the boat to the hotel. They normally send detailed directions when you book.
          How to book a room? I tried several booking websites and no one offering this hotel. Also, I tried to book throught hotel's website and it cannot be!

          I used Agoda. When a property is not available for booking, it can simply mean the hotel is either closed or full.
