          What is the best airport to fly in to get the closest to this hotel? How would I get from that airport to this hotel? Is there a village near the hotel? Do you know of a coffee & pastry shop called the Shu or shoe?

          Fly either to Geneva or Zurich and take the train to interlaken and the boat to the hotel. They normally send detailed directions when you book.

          I used Agoda. When a property is not available for booking, it can simply mean the hotel is either closed or full.
