We were two couples in two double rooms for two nights. We were given rooms in the top floor (5th). As soon as we left the elavator and entered the landing of the 5th floor it felt like an oven.
The rooms were very very hot, and we were told that they had no fans available. The fans were all given to other rooms or broken. They had no other rooms to move to. We had a horrible night, very uncomfortable. It was so hot that we could not sleep.
We requested to be moved to a lower floor for the second night, as the lower floors are much cooler. We were given rooms in the 1st floor and were also given a fan. This was a very different scenario. The rooms were fresher and we were happy.
I find it very difficult to understand why the hotel management does not provide a fan to each room in the 5th floor to help to cope with the unbearable temperature of those rooms on the 5th floor. We stayed in one other hotel in Interlaken that had no air conditioning, but it had a fan in the room permanently, available for guests to use, if required.
It is very uncaring to tell guests that the website of the hotel does not include air conditioning, and no to provide fans to 5th floor rooms when they must know what is like up there in summer.
Otherwise, the location is very good, good breakfast, clean, with parking spaces available, and very good price.
