Hotel Schonbuhl
Ranked #7 of 7 Hotels in Wilderswil
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Hotel was clean, rooms were small and basic but it was clean. Dinner was excellent first night. But I give it 3 stars as the Owner Urs is a piece of work! Hes rude and should NOT be working in the Service industry! He yelled at my friend for bringing outside food. Its a Hotel!! He yelled at me since I had to ring the doorbell one night cos he closed the front door. Who locks up a hotel?? I will NOT stay at this hotel because of him. He treated us like Children. He needs to change careers if he doesnt like dealing with Customers!!

Hotel is average with a nice view of the alps, too many unnecessary rules for a hotel, lady owner was nice but guy owner a bit grumpy and rude considering you are a customer at their hotel. Stayed here recently for 2 nights last April 2014 on an Expat tour. Will comeback to Interlaken but maybe with another hotel.

Everyone loves Switzerland and what more the location of this hotel. I spend my Christmas at this hotel, thinking it would snow and white Christmas but no snow and it was awfully cold. Food was okay. The room was basic but clean and nice. It is just a walking distance to the train station in Wilderswil. And the day I checked out, there was snow coming down...it was great!!

I stayed here for 2nights as part of the expat tour.
I was placed in a room where my sleeping arrangements was a bunk bed! Showers co ed and toilets down the corridor.
The place was clean and food ok. However the days of this type of accommodation has passed

Room Tip: I am not sure if so I would have done it

I loved my stay here at the Schonbuhl! The owner really makes the experience at the hotel worth it! Such a character, I really enjoyed his rule of no cellphones at the dinner table as it encouraged the room to interact with each other… plus there is a nice sitting lounge right outside the dining room to be on your phone. The owner changes the passwords daily and only gives it to travellers who buy drinks from his bar, really nice Swiss beer and coffees are available (one person can buy a drink and pass on the password to others). The rooms are extremely clean and had the best best views! We stayed on the third floor in the middle and it was fantastic, you can hear the bells of the sheep clinging in the distance. The food was really really good! The owner really put the dietary requirements of the entire group into consideration, and we were offered more in terms of food than what we bargained for. Will definitely stay at this hotel again, for the owner and the general scenery.. once you get to know the owner and his wife, they are lovely people!

Room Tip: The middle, for the immaculate views!

Stayed in this friendly, basic but adequate hostel the night before Jungfrau marathon. Lovely location, clean and comfortable room, friendly bar with lots of information boards and leaflets. Put on breakfast from 5.30 for runners which was a nice touch. Nothing "amazing' about it but good value. About 1k from the train station though.

This hostel is on the side of a steep hill in a quaint village. The main hotel is nice, but the rooms on the third floor seemed like they had been slapped together out of plywood. Our group of students and chaperones stayed three nights, and each time the food was good. I was a little taken aback the first night after dinner when the owner read a list of infractions and their associated fines. The kids referred to him from then on as "50 francs", the most common fine. The wifi password was provided if you made a purchase from the bar, but the bar wasn't staffed much. We left at 4 a.m. on our last morning, and the hotel provided a sack lunch/breakfast for each of us, which was a nice touch.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony.
