          We had an excellent balcony view, very convenient location.

          A little outdated...the furnishings were minimal. The tv was only a 13" and did not offer a lot of viewing options.

          Location of this hotel, the breakfast and the restaurant within the hotel.

          Furnishing (beds, cupboards) are quite old, though functional; but the toilet is too basic.

          Disappointed with the hotel as it was grubby and the smell of chinese food permeated throughout the building. Fire escape routes were via used bedrooms. Breakfast was stale and substandard and also finished early (0915). The whole place is in need of renovation.

          The location was good.

          Services, atmoshphere was not fresh. Corridors were smelly. Room had no mini bar and electric kettle as promised on the web site. I was in Room No 117.

          Very good hotel in close proximty to Interlaken west railway station. You can see the station from hotel balcony & vice versa . Good comfortable rooms .

          The hotel breakfast has potato dish (mixed with pork bits ), which they should serve without pork , also separately , so that vegetarians can also have the potato dish .

          Location was good close to interlarke nwest station and close to shops all within walking distance and restaurants were close to. Excellent view from forward facing rooms of the Jung frau mountain region.

          Hotel was dirty - rooms smelt , unable to unpack case due to wardrobe smelt. Bedding smelling of cigratte smoke, poor lighting in the room uncomfortable bed. Breakfast poormany of the the glass bowls were chipped and glasses to. Hotel night club offered some intresting services as later found out from residents in the town that the hotel night club is infact a brothel aslo says open from 5pm - 5am and calls it welcomes gentlemen.unable to take english money , no bar or proper restaurant.
