Nice stay in Interlaken, comfortable room
Posted Jun 29, 2012
We stayed in a double room with a shared bathroom which was ok for 2 nights. This is one of the cheaper options for Interlaken as it's really expensive, well it's expensive all over Switzerland! The food is expensive too!
The room was spotless, even the shared shower and toilet were clean. There is only 1 shower and 1 toilet to share though. The soundproofing is not really great but it is in an old house. You can hear people coughing and talking in the room next door! TV was really old and tiny (34cm# and furniture out-dated.
Breakfast was complimentary and was extremely sufficient. Toast, fresh bread, yoghurt, cereals, jams, cheese, ham, tea, coffee and juice available. Breakfast is from 7.30 till 10.
Wifi is not free but not that expensive to buy. It cost 3 euro per hour or 8 euro for 4 hours, being able to log in and out as many times as you like...it's not on an automatic count down timer from your first log-in.
Great location, right in centre of town. Only a 5 minute walk from Interlaken West train station.
If you plan to take cable car up to Schilthorn, check monitor in tourist shop #or on TV screen in hotel) for weather conditions befoe you spend the money to get up there! It cost 120 euro per person for a return trip via train, bus and cable car. We ddin't get there as it was too rainy and foggy so would have been a waste of money BUT we've read that it's amazing! A must!
Reception/Owner very helpful and friendly and always smiling!
