Hotel Central Continental
Ranked #7 of 7 Hotels in Unterseen
Reviewed 14 March 2013

We walked out of interlaken west rly station onto the road,turned left, walked a few yards along the rly platform,crossed the rail line, then the stream , and there it was standing right in front. In between two streams, one fast flowing another slow.pl ask for a corner room with two balconies. Check in is at 2pm, check out at 12pm. When I opened the balcony doors, my god, what a breathtaking site of the Alps. Out of the world. Beautiful surroundings, flowers,streams. Breakfast, though not a very good spread, but ok. They serve it quite early. Since rly stn and bus stand are stone's throw away, one can plan accordingly. Pl carry swiss francs as in switzerland euro is not much in use and the exchange rate is not good.food is quite expensive. Just behind the hotel there is COOP where you can buy chocolates(cheap) and provisions for making burgers on your own, good cup noodles(you can get the hot water in the dining room allthe time).there is a store called AVEC on one side of the rly stn where you can get burgers but COOP works out cheaper. Pl remember that most shops close at 6pm. There is achinese restaurant on the ground fllor of the hotel. Staff were nice. Found them shopping for the hotel also at COOP. The view from the balcony will take your breath away. We went in the middle of october 2012.

We stayed two nights in this hotel and saw real potential, however the good aspects were easily forgotten for some negatives. We arrived and were nicely told that we could not check in until two and we could leave our luggage. We were told to leave our luggage in the reception foyer in the corner, which I was not especially comfortable with but as we had four suitcases we had little choice. Had I known the staff completely disappear from 12-2 I would not have left them there, as any one could have taken them.

Our room was lovely, but was made up for four people which was why we had the larger size. We also had a great view of the mountain which was great. The room had a really large balcony with nice outdoor furniture. The bathroom was quite big too.

Breakfast was appalling, with microwaved eggs cut up to look like scrambled eggs and everything else crudely put in large bowls. We ate scarcely there, not trusting much. We also noticed that the same people on reception were serving breakfast, as well as cleaning.

Perhaps the biggest turn off of the hotel was the staff who looked like they were strip club owners (just downstairs- gross!). They were large, burley men who never smiled and walked around in a intimidating manner. Hardly a good front of service for a hotel, and did nothing to make us feel like it was a quality hotel.

Room Tip: View of the mountain and not the other side where the strip club is located.

This hotel looks so photogenic in the web. This is one reason why we chose this hotel, beside it's above-than-average review. The picture was not a lie. This hotel looked really nice from the outside. We had a triple balcony room. And we had a very nice view of the Alps from the balcony. Checking in was smooth, parking was easy. The room was big and clean, but looked dated. The bathroom looked old and needed more lighting. The hotel corridor was so dim, combined with it's dated carpet, made the feel of old 80's. The breakfast was a good point here. Not lots of choices, but we had one of the tastiest Omelettes ever provided in hotel breakfast.
We could walk to the shopping area nearby. Such a lovely town, very recommended to visit for skiing, sightseeing and relaxation.
Pros: Big room, nice view, and prime location
Negatives: a bit expensive and dated

Room Tip: Room with balcony

Actually, staying in Interlaken is like dreaming of heaven, specially when you look over those Alps mountains from a room in this hotel, the location is more than perfect, just on the river & 5 minutes from the train station (Interlaken West) & these stunning small streets are decorated with those beautiful shops.
The staff were really so friendly & cooperative, but the breakfast was nothing, mainly juices & some bread and butter, in addition there's no body to help for transferring the baggage.
Our room was double with balcony, somehow the furniture was old, they accepted cash payment in US$, it was really the best city i've visited ever, and i will do it again but with extended period not less than a week.

Room Tip: Room with balcony and view on the Jangfrauch mountains.

The rooms were large and spacious.we got a room on the 1st floor with a huge balcony.there were only 3 rooms of this type in the hotel.otherwise the rooms had 2 small balconies.The breakfast was ok.the breads were not fresh. The lobby was very big. You could rent bicycles. The view was beyond our imagination. we were right in the middle of two rivers. the hotel can be seen easily from the station itself. just 2 min walking distance from the station and the bus terminal.The receptionist was helpful and i would surely recommend this hotel to you.

Room Tip: Ask the receptionist if the rooms on the first floors are available.(the rooms with the large balcon...
