My boyfriend headed to Interlaken for a last minute weekend during the high tourist season in Switzerland and booked this hotel with our fingers crossed. We were pleasantly surprised and it was just perfect for our stay. It is about a 10-15 minute walk from Interlaken West train station (further from Ost) and not super well lit at night, which is the only drawback. However being further away from the town was actually pretty nice since it was peaceful and gave us more of a mountain feel (instead of that we were stuck in a tourist trap).
Very quiet location, excellent views of the Jungfrau from the room. Room was small but comfortable with everything we needed and very clean. There is no tv or radio (read a book or take a nice hike!) Rene (the owner) is very friendly and helpful as is the rest of the staff. We ended up booking another night at this place last minute because we had such a great time. I think there is a breakfast, but we were always up too early to take advantage of it. There are two or 3 cute restaurants nearby and you can always walk to town (or take the bus in but it doesn't come that frequently).
If you are looking to be pampered with lots of amenties and spa, stay at one of the five stars in the area. But if you come to Interlaken to experience the Alpine playground just outside, I highly recommend this hotel, you can't do much better for the price.
