The hotel was once quite grand. It is situated within a 5 minute walk of the train station. As well it has a lovely view of the canal and surrounding mountains.
Upon entering the hotel it smells of cigarettes, the furnishings and rugs are thread bare and dirty. The counter is banged up. The elevator works but smells of cigarette smoke. Our room was on the 2nd floor. The hallway walls were dirty with hand marks. Many of the doors had patches. They didn't bother to paint the whole door, but various patches.
The beds were terrible - had to roll uphill. The bathroom had linoleum on the floors and walls. The seams had come unglued and black mould was evident in several areas of the bathroom. Oh the toilet ran continually.
Someone tried to open our hotel room door one night. That person then moved their way down the hall trying other doors.
Breakfast was fine. The fresh buns were delicious.
Interlaken is very expensive. If all you need is a roof over your head this will suffice. It will make the next hotel you stay in after this look and smell like the Ritz.
