We chose this hotel for the location as it was quicker to reach the mountains from the train station across the road. I will mention the 2 plus points firstly. The location gives you a perfect view of the waterway and mountains if you are lucky enough to stay on this side of the hotel. The underground car park with lift access was very handy. This grand old hotel in its hay day would have been very interesting. Its very large and seems to have a mountain of period furniture in the foyer to seat many. The staff seem to be disconnected and show no enthusiasm. The rooms are not comfortable and the breakfast was morbid. Needless to say we left this hotel a day early.

I feel cheated for my stay at this Hotel thanks to the pictures. In reality its a scene from a Steven King scary movie. All room are almost same size, so if you think you are getting a bigger room by paying more - you are being cheated. Make sure you are not paying more than $35 - $40 per night for 2 people, and even if you are I would recommend increase your budget, go down the road you will find some thing much better. It is an old Hotel that has been seriously neglected, bathrooms are bad, fittings have lost chrome, towels stink and are rough, rooms are small and cramped, paint is in bad shape. Room fridge are sitting outside in the hallways and not connected. Floors creek. dead insects and bugs under the beds, and the list goes on and on. Employees are alright, but the same staff does reception, restaurant and bar so they are overworked. IF and a big IF you get a room towards the front you get a good view of the city.

The best thing about this hotel is the location within 5 mins to Interlaken West Train Station and there are many eateries around. Another good point is the very spacious room with balcony facing the river view. Local transport card is provided with unlimited free ride for local buses and discount for train ride. The exterior of the hotel looks beautiful and grand. However, the facilities are very old. The socket was so old that we had to borrow the adapter from the front desk. Front desk staff are very unfriendly and less helpful. We reached the hotel early, and the front desk girl used her stern voice with a stern face to tell us that check in should be 2pm. Soon after, she decided to let us check in since there are many available rooms. We knew that there were many available room as all the available room door were wide open including the one we checked in. Breakfast was available early at 5am which is good for guests with early schedule to the Alpine region. Would suggest travellers to stay around Interlaken Ost Train Station since the trains going to most Alpine regions depart there, including the ferry terminal is near Interlaken Ost. Harder Kulm inclined railway station is also nearer to Interlaken Ost. Hence, it’s more convenient to stay nearby Interlaken Ost than Interlaken West for travelling purpose.

Dirty place, not clean at all, awful service. Full of insects and very old. I am a frequent traveler, I do change hotel twice per month, I never seen such a messy place for 200 Euro per day. This is unacceptable.

We stayed here for 1 night and that was enough. Rooms out dated and not very clean. Leaking toilet. Staff unfriendly and not very helpful. In the morning a very loud cleaning staff. Breakfast very limited and when the bowls where empty no fresh was brought. Dirty plates on the table and once collected the table was not cleaned. Not worth the money and when possible stay out of here.

The experience of stayit in this hotel was not as great as we expected, the staff attitude is something they need to looked into, at dot 10 AM the coffee was taken away even as we were there to fill it up in the breakfast buffet, after lot of persuasion it was given though, hope things change for the better, the surrounding are good from the hotel room.

We stayed for 1 night. Staff at reception not very helpful or friendly at all. Room seemed okay initially with a balcony despite being very dated, however once we went into the bathroom we discovered there was hair all over the floor. The room clearly hadn’t been cleaned properly as the next morning before leaving, we checked under the bed to make sure we hadn’t forgotten anything, but we found more hair and even a baggie. We were woken several times in the morning by other guests’ alarms as the walls were paper thin. The cleaning staff in the corridors in the morning were also very loud and disturbed us in the morning despite us checking out that day as there was no “do not disturb” sign to use. No extractor fan in the bathroom either. Could definitely find somewhere much nicer for the price paid. Wouldn’t recommend.

if you get a room facing south to the W railway station, you might get excellent early morning views of the jungfrau. otherwise my room was very small, but friendly & efficient cleaning stuff. breakfast buffet ok. the time you spend paying the bill, with jessica, the unfriendly reception dragon, is rather unpleasant.

This is an excellent place to stay in Interlaken. Next to the train station. Restaurants are nearby. Amazing view from hotel window mountains, river, trains and paragliders. Breakfast is good with long time 5 - 10 am. Very Co-operative staff. I recommend this place.

Loved the old school charm of this hotel and the location was excellent and within walking distance from Interlaken West train station. Our room balcony had wonderful views of the mountains. Bed was comfortable and blankets were warm. The shower pressure was good and the bath spacious. Having said that, the hotel is tired and in serious need of some tender loving care. The walls in our room were dirty with Long black marks on them. Dirty hand marks were on the door of the room. There was a kettle in the room but nothing to use it for so no coffee or tea. I would have scored higher if it was just cleaned properly and special attention to details were taken more seriously. Breakfast was alright.
