Reviewed 12 July 2012 via mobile

My family stayed for 2 evenings in this nicely located hotel. Rooms were small but quite efficiently laid out. The view of the mountains from the room was refreshing.

Breakfast was typical spread - quite comparable to other hotel.

The most pathetic hotel I have ever stayed in. It claims to be a 3 star. Breakfast is real bad. Rooms are tiny. Rude staff.

my husband and I did a backpacking trip of swiss so we were very choosy about the location of hotels rather than the quality coz we weregoing to be out of the hotel most of the time.

Location : the hotel is a backpackers paradise coz its just bang opposite interlaken west station which means not carrying our backpacks for a long time ! phew! Its bang on the small cozy shopping street and the weekly farm market is a 5 min walk away. I picked up some amazing herbs and seasoning from here.

Rooms : Our room was facing the river which flows besides the interlaken station. The overall view was blue river flowing rapidly with a backdrop of mountains. A five star view in budget pricing. One could also see jungfraujoch from the terrace. However it was a pretty small room.

Food : One of the lousiest breakfast I have had. But again there are good options within walking distance.

Overall a good place to just spend the night .

Room Tip: Take the room faing the main road, which will give you a river view.

Nice enough people, but rooms were old, place was noisy and breakfast left alot to be desired. Not much of anything for breakfast. Not worth the money I paid but was clean. Both my son and I would stay elsewhere next time, didnt enjoy at all.

We stayed at Hotel Merkur in Dec 2011 for 2 days. The best thing about the hotel is that it is just outside the Interlaken West station and on the main shopping street. We saw the hotel from the station itself. It is just opposite the street with some amazing views of Lake and Jungfrau range. Rooms were good and furnishings were just adequate. No hair-dryer in the bathroom, but was available with a small deposit. Bathroom was ok, nothing grand but adequate. The hotel is situated on the main shopping street with lots of souvenir shops around and lots of places to eat as well. Founded a good Indian Restaurant a few min walk from the hotel, Spices of India, which was just amazing. McD was also just a few min walk from the hotel. Breakfast in the hotel was the only thing which was below expected as there was very little choice. Better to have breakfast in some cafe outside the hotel. The other station, Interlaken Ost is a good 20-25 min walk, so its better to plan before and know the train timings if u have further travel plans from there. Free wifi in reception lobby only. Would recommend it as a Budget hotel if u r planning on spending min time in hotel and want to explore the city more.

LOCATION!! LOCATION!! LOCATION!!
It is bang outside the Interlaken train station which is excellent for us indian travellers who love to travel heavy so we have to simply drag our bags across the road and into the hotel. The hotel has free wifi in its lobby which is a bit of a pain. there is no room service. but the front desk ladies are very very helpful. In fact, people in Interlaken are really friendly. the location of this hotel is everything. there are several restaurants close by.. both indian as well as swiss restaurants.. the hotel also provides a decent spread at breakfast.. the rooms are very neat and clean and provide breathtaking views since interlaken is such a beautiful place.

Room Tip: the room facing the station and on a higher floor would be ideal.. best views available..
