      Breakfast at 3 meters from the water with view of mountains. Very conveniently situated next to train and boat station.

      Hotel stuff was very helpfull.

      Since I come for business i need my rest and I could not get the rest because of the train coming and going. I should have been told that my room would be right in front of the train station , not only telling me that I have a balcony......

      Good location--easy walking distance from Interlaken Ost Rail Station. The staff was friendly and helpful, with good English skills. The breakfast is really good: wide variety of food and beautiful setting on the lake. Free Wi-fi in lobby area.

      For our purposes, it was just right (overnight on a day spent traveling). No negatives!

      Good hotel, only you have to bear with train noise as it is near the station, but it is helpful as train and bus station near gives lot of advantage planning trip and luggage handling

      Good hotal little high in price

      The reception lady was most helpful and friendly and offered us extra information to make our visit to Interlaken as complete as it could have been. Our rooms were generous and the bathroom well equipped. Breakfast was included in the price of the room and was very good. We had a view to the Jungfrau from our window.

      Although we were too busy to spend time watching TV there is a web cam to the top of the mountains to see what the weather is like for the day's activities but our TV was tiny and so they could update these to larger, and maybe flat screen TVs. The proximity to the train station is a plus for those travelling by train, but we found it to be a busy station and noisy and we were unfortunate that our stay was also at a time when they carried out rail works through the night

      The hotel has a great location right beside the train station (where all trains to the mountains start and boat cruises leave from) which was great that after long day up the mountains or around the lake. Its only a short walk to the town centre but bikes are available if you wish to use them. Our room faced the river so we didnt hear any trains at night. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We were leaving before breakfast so they packed a food bag for our journey.

      Coming from America, and this being my first time in Europe, I had a lot of fears going in, but as soon as my fiancee and I walked in we felt very welcomed. Our room faced the river (30) and it was a wonderful backdrop. The hotel can be seen from the train pulling in and is a short couple of minute walk under the train tracks through a tunnel. We were not at all bothered by the train at night, and the walk to the main avenue is a short 5-10 minutes. We walked around for a couple of hours really soaking in the scenery, which you'll never be able to get enough of. Also, the hotel gives discounts on local attractions and allows you to ride the bus for free, which we found really useful. I doubt you can find better price/quality - Switzerland is just damn expensive.

      Location suited us very well nextdoor to the East Station giving easy access to the mountain railways to Grindelwald and Murrin and also adjacent to the lake steamer stop. Nice bathroom. Breakfast room beside river was very pleasant. Reception staff were helpful.

      The twin room was just a bit too small for 2 single travellers but okay for one night

      Extremely good location next to boats and railway station. Also some very good walks from the hotel.

      Disappointed that there was not a bar that you could relax in after a day out.

      The hotel was right next to the train station, and beside the river, so it was great to reach it so quickly after a long train journey, and the river was the most stunning turquoise colour, so it was great to be so close (although we later discovered several other hotels are also next to the river). Breakfast was included, and was fabulous. The hotel was very clean, and the staff were friendly and helpful.

      DO NOT stay here if you want to sleep! The trains start at 6am, and are very loud. Add to that cheap cotton curtains without blinds, and the rooms are light as soon as the sun comes up. Then there is a complete lack of soundproofing - we heard every conversation our neighbours had, and every scream their children gave - not what we expected of a hotel which is supposed to be four stars, but deserves two or three at best! There is only one pillow each, which compresses into nothing, and the door did not close properly - several times it opened by itself! A minor point, but there is a complete lack of colour co-ordination in the room furnishings. The curtains were pink and green, the doonas (no top sheet) were yellow, the bathroom was pink and black, and the room was about half the size shown in the picture. The hotel is also a long way from the heart of town. By the time we left, we were exhausted, and couldn't wait to get out of there.

      The hotel staff was warm, welcoming and helpful. The room was pleasant. And the location was right by the east train station which made everything very easy.

      My 2 daughters and I had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful hotel and apart from the surrounding stunning scenery,what we like best about this family owned hotel,was the most friendly obliging staff members who endeavoured to make our short stay in Interlaken as comfortable as possible.We stay there again in a heartbeat !!!

      Friendly staff, clean and tidy room and careful administration.

      Near railway station but a little bit far from downtown.
