Hotel du Nord
Ranked #27 of 40 Hotels in Interlaken
Reviewed 4 October 2012

Stayed here for 4 nights in September. Centrally located, 5 mins walk from Interlaken Ost Train station and on the main street in the town.
Hotel is traditional, but the rooms are comfortable & clean. The breakfast buffet is excellent.
Rooms in the upper floors have amazing views of the Alps
The hotel is close to many bars and restaurants so there is plenty of choice.
Internet is not free however, there are other hotels&restaurants nearby where it is available

we booked into this nicely situated hotel in Interlaken. Originally booked in for 2 nights, but ended up staying 4. Our Room on the fourth floor was beautiful - excellent views overlooking the Jungfrau. We'd previously stayed at the Victoria Jungrau in Interlaken and were very disappointed with our room. We were disappointed that the hotel no longer served dinner but it was very convenient for all the local restaurants, so not a great hardship. Breakfast was lovely, with friendly staff. Unfortunately the hotel has also chosen not to serve drinks etc on the terrace, so the few tables were only used by smokers. Still loved it and would go back

Room Tip: Probably high up better away from traffic noise

Nice hotel, with very kind front desk staff. The size of rooms vary, so be aware about it before booking it. Good breakfast buffet. Poor WiFi service, and paid (CHF 3,00/hour). No in room snacks or water.

This hotel is nicely located - very close to the congress centre, to the shops and restaurants and the station is in walking distance as well. our room gave on a big park and had view on the mountains. The room is not very big, but big enough for two, light coloured, with everything you need. The service was as far we needed it friendly and helpful. We felt well in this hotel. Breakfast was certainly Ok as well, maybe more fresh fruit might be nice. Unfortunately there is no free access to Internet.

Room Tip: there are rooms with view

Only one night, but it could have been longer. Comfortable room, extensive breakfast, pleasant and friendly staff and we had a nice view on the park and the mountains. There is a large choice of hotels in Interlaken, but here we will go back. One downside, internet access is not included in the room price.

Located closer to Ost than West, which can be a good thing if you are planning day trips around Interlaken. The Hotel is nice, CLEAN, decent room sizes as well, but NO Air conditioning, which I think is quite common in Switzerland. They did provide a table fan. I would totally skip the breakfast. You have to pay to use internet and no wi-fi. The hotel does not have a pool but as a part of some tax tourists pay, hotel guests can use the pool facilities at a club, which is very good! Overall a good stay.

Unfortunately, we had a bad experience at this hotel.

The good points: It is conveniently located, walking distance from the train station and the tourist area of the city. There is no spa on site, but you get free passes to the Interlaken city sports facility, a really nice one, a five minute walk from the hotel.

We found the room not clean when we arrived. The room itself was far below the quality of the other 4-star hotels that we stayed in while in Switzerland.

The internet costs 18CHF a day. Every 1-star hotel has free internet these days- why do I need to add more money on top of the already expensive daily charges? Plus, the internet did not work in our room and we had to sit in the lounge to get reception.

There are annoying signs around the hotel. There is a water dispenser in the lobby, for example, and it says that it is only for drinking and it is strictly forbidden to fill up a water bottle to take outside the hotel on a trip. There is a sign in the breakfast room, that it is strictly forbidden to take any food to use for other meals, etc.

Why do I need to feel like a criminal by "stealing" a Franc worth of water?

When we asked the person at the desk if there was another way to get by train to Geneva that didn't go through Bern, we were told, "Don't you know that Bern is the capital of Switzerland, why don't you want to go there?" in a very surly tone. Well, we had to get to Geneva and just passing through...

We had excellent experiences at every hotel except for this one during our two weeks in Switzerland. We did not have one here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The history of the Hotel Du Nord goes back to the early 19th Century with the advent of tourism in the region. Until then, Interlaken, or the “Bodeli” as it was known (from the name of the flat plain between the two lakes, which was created by glacial sediment from the mountain rivers), had been mainly visited by religious pilgrims or commercial travellers, who would stop to rest their weary legs in one of the few local hostels after the arduous journey over the mountains. This changed once the first tourists started visiting the Jungfrau Region, lured by the works of well-known writers and descriptions the first alpine farming festivals. In 1814, the resourceful businessman and councillor Jakob Seiler recognised the potential of these new visitors and built the »Pension Seiler« at the eastern end of today’s Höhematte, on the historical foundations of the former convent. Ten years later, the hotel was renamed the »Pension du Casino« to cater to the health conscious crème de la crème ... more   less
