We were booked in here by a travel agents, as part of a 2 week tour, as a base for visiting the local mountains- Jungfraujoch, Kleine Scheidegg, Schiedigge Platte etc, doing some walking and biking. In this respect, the hotel was ideally located. However, we were staying 5 nights and the weather was in the 30s.
The rooms, while spacious and clean, with comfy beds, have no air con and for some unknown reason, no blinds or shutters, just lightweight curtains. This meant the room was never properly dark, and was very light early in the morning. It was also difficult to sleep due to the heat. The other problem is the nature of the hotel as it seems to be used as a transit hotel. People were arriving very late and leaving early, meaning we were woken around 1.30 and again at 5 as people came and left. It was not the hotel's fault that guests chose to talk at the top of their voices despite the unsocial hours. With hindsight, we would have asked for a quieter location in a quieter place.
Breakfast was fine, if basic, but the coffee and selection of breads were excellent, as was the breakfast service.
Wifi is free but restricted to the reception area. The receptionist was happy to lend us an adapter for our room to charge phones etc as ours didn't fit the type of socket.
The hotel seems a little tired- it could do with a bit of a make over - but as I said, as most guests seemed to be staying for a short time, they probably didn't notice.
