What a fabulous 3 night stay. The hotel is rustic but beautiful. Room very comfy & spotless. Bathroom looked brand new with a full size bath. Breakfast was plentiful. Couldn’t fault any of the staff, so friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. Easy walk into Interlaken. Fabulous view of the mountains from our room/balcony at the front of the hotel. We were in room 340. Would 100% stay again!

The hotel is located about 650m from Interlaken West station. It is a direct, flat and easy enough walk, even dragging suitcases behind you. It is an old, traditional style building, with 2 sections - front and rear - with the rear section possibly a bit quieter than the front, from a traffic perspective, but the road is not overly busy anyway. The rooms are a little dated, but comfortable. We (a couple) were upgraded to a family room (mezzanine second bedroom) in the rear section, although the main area was still relatively small. The room had a balcony, which is always nice, but no fridge or air con. Two portable fans were in the room and these were needed, in conjunction with an open balcony door, given the days were hot and nights warm. However, the important things were good - a comfortable bed and a good shower.|The staff were very helpful and friendly; the predominantly cold breakfast was quite reasonable; there was a bar/lounge on the ground floor of the rear section; the Old Town was a 10 minute walk and there were a number of restaurants within the same 10 minute walk, so the location was fine.|All in all, although not really modern, it was comfortable and it provided a pleasant stay.
