Booked the hotel Interlaken given its convenience for railway station as we were arriving from Italy in the evening before taking a flight home the following morning (airport bus leaves from the main train station).
Manning reception was a senior French man, who seemed confused and annoyed by finding himself at work in this hotel, and was rude and abrupt in a number of languages with the various groups / couples trying to deal with him. He tried to charge us for our already paid room ... we had to fetch out our prepaid receipt upon which he relented saying it was not clear in his list...
Hotel looks like it has been renovated recently. Facade has been freshly painted. Our room was small, looked out onto the street from first floor. As we were one night stayers, they probably figured we'd put up with the noise from the street which was unholy. Usual railway station sleaze and a lot of traffic; a sort of underpass begins just outside the hotel. No a/c or ventilation so closing the window is suffocating in summer months. We had fitful sleep and thanked the heavens that we did not have to stay a second night.
Re room, ours was first floor and had clearly been part of a recent renovation. New lino etc, new not very well fitted bathroom. I regret not taking a picture: room was small, on first floor with noise problems already indicated. Bathroom was basic, shower head cheap and broken and sent water in all directions, also no wall fixture for shower head. Stand out features of room: everything seemed to be on a slope for some reason. Not bad enough to roll out of bed but weird nonetheless. But weirdest of all was the colour scheme: bright red and orange in random oblongs for all of the bedroom walls. Like something from a Milligram experiment or a Stanley Kubrick film.
If you want a reasonable hotel near Nice train station, just continue walking down away from the Hotel Interlaken. There are plenty in the quieter rues nearby.
