If you want marble and gold do not consider this place, but if you would like an authentic family run property in a very convenient location at a reasonable price this is the place for you.
With the exception of one rather surly waiter, the staff are excellent, very attentive, knowledgeable, and extremely willing to help in any way possible.
Add to that, the owner is the manager, and very hands on, so things tend to run like a Swiss clock.
Some of the features and fittings are a little dated and could do with a review, but they add to the ambience and the experience.
Location is excellent, between the railway station and the beautiful river, and tucked under a very steep hill.Nearby tourist destinations such as Jungfrau and Pilaetus are easily reached from the Interlaken Ost station.Boat cruises also leave from just outside the hotel.
Train noise was not a problem to us,but some sensitive souls may be inclined to complain.
Would stay again but for longer so as to enjoy nwhat is to offer in the near vicinity.
