“Just magnificent”
Reviewed 2 October 2008

It was fantasic, great location, friendly staff, gorgeous river views and you could hear the water gushing, lovely french style decor. Great value. Only problem was with a window not opening. Free internet in reception (very slow though) and there was a bar and a tv screen showing jungfrau for weather conditions

  • Liked — The view off the balcony straight to the river
  • Disliked — The slow internet, small lift and a bit rickety

Only a 5 min walk from Interlaken West, spacious clean rooms, modern bathroom (heated towel rails!), (small) balcony, kettle and hair dryer provided, good views (river and hills, mountains visible if not a cloudy day), friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, internet in the lobby, elevator, variety of eating joints 5 min walk away: what more could one ask for?
Only complaints: very creaky floorboards in the room, 10 francs/ night extra for a baby cot

I found this hotel on my GPS, it being one of the closest ones to Interlaken West train station. We did not have any difinitive plans to stay in Interlaken more that a night or two, but ended up staying a full week. The hotel and it's staff were excellent to my wife and I. It was quiet, clean, and had an ice machine. The included breakfast in the morning was also top notch. It was right on the river and so quiet you thought you were not near town, when it was actually just all around us. A great place to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings.

This hotel is very close to the Interlaken west station. (7-10 mins walk). From the station walk straight along platform 1 (in german platform is called Gleis) and you will come out of the station and then walk along the railway track for about 6 minutes (300 meters approx). When walking you'll see the railway tracks on your left. Then make the first left (you'll cross the railway track here). The hotel is the third building on the left. You can't miss it. When walking along the trck, you can see the Hotel sign on the top of the hotel building very clearly.

Right next to the Hotel there is a Indian grocery store. Its very convenient if you want to grab a quick snack or a calling card. The hotel front desk personnel talk english very well. The hotel has wooden floors and creaks when you walk - but no big deal. I went with my wife and 2 little kids (6 and 3 years old). We stayed in one room. 2 beds were provided and a play pen (they call it cot) was provided. But we returned the playpen since it was small. Two adults and 2 kids sleep on the 2 beds. It was not extremely comfortable but it was bearable. The rooms were clean, hot water provided, potable tap water, nice shower and ample towels provided.

The hotel has free Internet computer (only one) in its lobby. Also, there have umbrellas in the lobby that you can use and bring them back to the Hotel.

The Hotel Bellevue provides excellent "free" breakfast from 7 AM to 10 AM everyday. The coffee is fresh and awesome with hot milk. The breakfast is continental - Cereals, bread, egg, orange juice and a few other juices, pastries, croissant, et al. We loved the free breakfast. This breakfast saves probably 50-60 SF everyday for you if 4 people traveled.

There is a coin laundry (they call is washerie) that is only a few minutes (2 or 3 minutes walk) away from the hotel. We used it twice. 6 Swiss Francs for washing (26 minutes) and 1 SF for 10 minutes of drying. I had to put 6 or 7 SF for drying my clothes. But I had a lot of clothes. Soap is available in the laundry There is a old lady in the washerie that owns the laundry and she can talk only German. You can give your clothes to her and she will wash them for you for 12 SF. But you need to pick up before 6:30 PM. The laundry is open till 10 PM (very convenient).

Interlaken is a very safe place. We walked at 11 pm in the night to have dinner. All stores except the COOP grocery store close around 6 PM. Restaurants are open till 11 PM. There is a small fast food booth at the Interlaken West station right on the platform near the bus stand. This place has great Veggie burgers, waffles (chocolate topping) and french fries. Veggie burger is 5.5 SF, Waffle 5 SF and fries 5 SF. This is the cheapest place where you can have food. Its open till 10:45 PM. The owner is from Kosovo and a very nice lady.

The coop grocery store in on the main street in Interlaken. Take a nice walk from the Hotel (about 7 minutes) The street is called Hoheweg. This is the main street. You cannot miss this main street. Coop sells all basic groceries including cheap bottled water. We bought yogurt and water here for our kids. Also, they sell fruits.

Interlaken West to Interlaken Ost station commute: Trains run from west to the Ost (Ost means east) every 10-15 minutes. Its a 5 minute ride. All trains to Lauterbrunnen and the Jungfrau region depart from Interlaken Ost.

The train connections are awesome in Swiss. You'll never have any trouble. Trains to lucernce depart from Interlaken Ost.

Trains to Bern stop in Interlaken West.

  • Liked — Close proximity to the train station and restaurants and laundry
  • Disliked — Price is a little high when compared to US standards

This well located, oddly modern hotel serves as an excellent base for higher elevation adventures. The hotel is located within three blocks of the Interlaken West Rail station and about eight blocks from the Interlaken Ost Station on the east end of the City Center. The hotel is within easy walking distance of typical amenities including a grocery across the street. The room was well equipped with a sink in the sleeping area as well as the bathroom. The bathroom also included the usual appointments including a separate shower and bathtub area as well as a toilet facing a pair of oversized windows overlooking the river. Considering Switzerland's expensive economy, this hotel provides an excellent value. Side note, the including breakfast was a sizable spread with good quality, mainly cold, selections.

Great Hotel. The staff is very nice and speak English. Rooms with a nice view of the river and the mountains and clean. Great central location but quiet. The train passes right by the hotel but we never heard it at night. Great breakfast. Free internet in the lobby and there is a market directly across the street that has just about everything. Close to the train station that will take you higher up into the mountains for a great day tour. I highly recommend this hotel, you won’t be disappointed.
