Recent guest reviews
Views are stunning. Five minutes walk from the mountain cable / trolley so you can go up above the clouds where you can see some heavenly scenes or go down to the lake and take the 19 century boat. Bus stop to Interlaken is at the hotel's doorstep. The food is OK, but the most important thing is the cleanness of the hotel rooms. When there, make sure you visit the cave of the dragon. Europeans like Asians seem to believe in Dragons after all! This place is also excellent if you are planning a short and special honey moon. Your partner will love you more for it (trust me).
Property is good. View is spectacular. Interiors are good. Comfy apartment is very nice. If you're staying for 2-3 nights I recommend this hotel. But not for a long stay, as I did. I stayed for 16 nites. The management policy for Housekeeping is atrocious. My bedsheet was changed only "once", and that too on my insistence. Carpets were never vacuumed. Dusting was rarely done. Only towels are changed. Balcony is not cleaned. I was shocked! Most nights I tossed the bedsheets myself as I couldn't sleep on a bed where the sheets weren't ever tossed or flipped. There are toiletries available but not given. One day I noticed, in the housekeeping trolley parked outside my room, that the hotel could provide bedroom slippers, shower gel, shower cap and so I insisted upon these necessities. The hotel doesn't provide a Kettle with tea and coffee . They have a coffee machine but not electric kettle. Upon my request I was given one but, it was the ancient gas one without a whistle so you don't know if the water has heated or not till you keep checking. Other than this, the staff in the restaurant and at the reception is very hospitable, kind, and warm. Even the housekeeping girls are very nice, its just the top management policy, not the housekeeping fault. The GM is "not" a hands-on warm hospitable man, as one wld expect. However, if you email him for information and requests he is more than forthcoming and helpful. The location makes up for the uncleanliness but, like I said, for a few days its good. Otherwise I would not stay here as cleanliness and housekeeping is a must for me. I like to return to a clean and pristine room and sleep in a bed of changed sheets that are clean...I also didnt like the attitude of the GM when it came to the hotel dropping me to the station. I had requested if the person who drops me could help me load my luggage onto the train as i had 3 bags. I was told that wld not be possible. It was off season and just need an extra 20 mins. However, the Swiss man who dropped me, showed Swiss hospitality, and stayed to help me with my luggage. Swiss hospitality is lost coz mostly personnel employed arent Swiss but migrants from other countries. The Swiss I have observed are very particular on kindness, and extremely helpful people. This quality made me love Switzerland. Just dont expect this from hotels and restaurants that employ non-Swiss. I admire the owners of the property for making such a beautiful resort in the midst of the Swiss Alps with a view you cant get anywhere on earth!
try to get 12 or 13 floor , views r so nice , 14 floor got no lift , very nice location ! nice n clean apartment, covered parking, both lakes can b seen from hotel. i was in that hotel in 2012/13 , it was good experience , ill recommend it.
First of all, the drive up to this hotel is very cool! You're surrounded by mountains, most of them are snow-capped. Many people stay in Interlaken because that's where most of the activities are, but there's a free bus/shuttle that takes off every hour or half hour from this hotel. I definitely preferred staying up in the mountains, enjoying nature and the views!! The hotel staff is very friendly and accommodating. They are used to very excited guests arriving and asking many questions. If you just let them talk and explain everything, I can assure you that most of your questions will be answered. I had many questions to ask, like many, but Kira, the lovely lady who was at the front desk, answered everything I needed to know. She provided maps and brochures as well. The first questions you may have is, "will my room have a view of the mountains?" The answer is YES. Guests have views of the mountains and the staff stay in the front part of the hotel. Mirco was another very helpful staff member, answering more of my questions that I had throughout my stay. This is an adventure town so if you're in the mood for some fun, be sure to ask what activities Beantenburg and the surrounding towns offer. I went sledding "sledging" nearby at Neiderhorn Mountain. The gondola to the top of the mountain is walking distance from the hotel...ADDED BONUS! The views from up top are even more spectacular than from your hotel balcony. If you're going to go sledding and you've never done it before, be careful! I went when it was icy and flew RIGHT off the course because I couldn't stop myself. I didn't get hurt, but it's no one's responsibility but your own if you get hurt. In terms of the hotel itself, the rooms could use a little update. The bathroom shower is questionable and the bathroom door itself needs an update. With that being said, I would definitely come back to this hotel in a heartbeat. I didn't even sleep in the loft bedroom (which faced the street) because the couch was big and wide enough for two people and I just had to wake up to that view every morning.
The hotel is perfect! Cosy beds, clean bathroom/kitchen, wonderful view. Our room had 2 floors and the access for the bottom floor was through a spiral staircase - a bit dangerous for small kids, but our 6yo was ok. The staff is very helpful and the leisure in the hotel is great (they have a sunbed machine for the guests near the swimming pool for 5 CHF per 8 minutes - Can you believe that!? - you go to the cold weather and gets a tan on the hotel!! 👌🏼😃). Swimming pool and sauna with robes and clean towels, gym, kids play area. Breakfast is very good and there is a "omelette bar" with lots of toppings made as you please. We were in love. The restaurant is ok, but expensive. There isn't anything close to buy food, so when going to Interlaken, do the shopping before coming home. 🙂
Perfect place for family with small children. Parking is available just in front of the hotel. Niederhorn cable car is just 10minutes walk. Sledding there is relatively easy. Swimming after playing in the snow can be the perfect finish of the day. Only problem is driving up to the hotel is a bit tricky with lots of curves.
Just came back from this hotel 14.01.17 and cannot say anything bad about it. The village is approx.11 km out and above interlaken and takes about 25-30 minutes to drive, but it is worth it. Our room had a kitchen/dining area and large lounge on the lower floor and with a spiral staircase up to the bedroom/bathroom.It also had a balcony looking over Lake Thun towards the Eiger/Jungfrau. It felt every time like coming home and not to a hotel. We had breakfast included which was great and was eaten in the breakfast room overlooking the mountains. We visited the pool and sauna area every day and were pleased to see how clean everything was. All the staff we met from reception to cleaners were helpful and friendly.We parked in the underground car park, that does cost 10 SFR. per day but did save us having to remove the snow every morning :-). If you dont want to drive the Hotel issues a local pass and you can take the bus down to interlaken for free every hour. We can definitely recommend this hotel and will without hesitation stay here again!!
One of the best scenic hotel .. lake Thun and Alps in one frame , at a height of 1200 m from thin lake ...The view from our room was breathtaking it was one of my favourite places in Switzerland ... we had taken a family room as we had 2 children with us and it was a duplex with a balcony and kitchenette. The hotel has a temperature controlled swimming pool , gym , kids room and host of facilities.. it's very close to Niederhorn where various sports activity is available . Our stay was comfortable .. Interlaken is 45 min bus drive from here and hotel provides passes for bus travel and it's conveniently available in regular interval .. if u plan to stay in intralaken .. would suggest to stay at this place it was by chance we booked this hotel .. but it was the best thing that happened to us .
We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights over the Christmas period. Large rooms with fantastic views. Dining was exceptional with great buffet spread. Various walking trails in vicinity to enjoy clean mountain air and spectacular views over Lake Thun and Eiger and Jungfrau in distance. Within 500 meter of cable-way to top of Niederhorn. Only negative was the narrow staircase leading to the bedroom.
Thank you so much for the stay over Christmas in the Blumisalp IN 2016. it wa such a special experience that I'll never forget in my whole life. Thank you for all the staff members that made it a special white Christmas.
