“value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

i was hoping the hotel would be closer to the train station but it's quite a walk, slightly over 10min, from interlaken west (and much further from interlaken ost). the hotel is quite prominent as it's all red. you feel quite safe because the door is locked and needs to be accessed with hotel card. we arrived early and were given our rooms. there is no lift so pray that you get a room on the lower floor. the hotel is clean and is run by whom i assume are a husband and wife couple, very nice and helpful people who explain interlaken, its attractions to you patiently. all guests have a free pass for the buses in interlaken so that's very helpful! the hotel is near a few bus stops so that's more helpful than the trains. the room was clean and decent. nothing spectecular inside the room but it's good value for money. the two rooms we got both had mountain view so that was nice! breakfast is all right. nothing to complain about. something strange is that they do not allow food in rooms. you'll be fined if you cook instant noodles in the room. oh, they provide a coffee machine that uses capsules (similar to nespresso). overall, not bad for the price we paid.

Room Tip: no lift so try to get a ground floor room.

We stayed at the Hotel Derby for 2 nights in October 2013 and had a great stay! We had been recommended this hotel by a family member and we were not disappointed. Our train was getting in at 11pm and the hotel reception area was going to be closed by then so they were very accommodating and left our key for us outside. When we walked into our room we had mini Toblerone's on our bed - what a nice surprise! The room was very clean and modern. Great breakfast in the morning. George was very helpful with getting us set up with free bus passes, our tour up to the Jungfrau, and more. He was extremely helpful with what to do in the area and the best places to go. It is located closest to the Interlaken West train station, but it is an easy walk to the Ost train station as well. Perfect area off the main street so it was very quite and had a get view of the Alps. We were very impressed with this hotel and will definitely stay here again on our next visit and would recommend it to anyone. This was one of the best hotels we stayed in on our 3 weeks trip to Europe! Thanks Hotel Derby!

Nice hotel with good location. Very near from the Interlaken Ost stain. Very cosy environment & well managed family owned hotel. The breakfast is very limited but that apart everything about the hotel is good. The manager/owner is very co-operative & is more than willing to make bookings for local excursions. I recommended this hotel to my wife's sister & she stayed & found it equally good as I did. Would highly recommend.

Hotel is located in a quite area, close to the city center, staff are welcoming & rooms are clean.

Don't expect a variety of food on breakfast as hotel takes the swiss riviera pattern.

Management were welcoming & explained every details in a fantastic way !

Good car parking lot & was offered for free.

Clean and neat place, breakfast is also good, however the cleaning staff is outsourced and enter the room without knocking.
If travelling with luggage please insist on rooms on Ground Floor OR else please be prepared to carry them to hiher floors via stairs. No Elevator or Porter for helping with the same.

George was waiting for us upon check-in, he gave us a great introduction to the area, maps, how to purchase some tickets or book activities. Our room was cute and quiet, modern remodel over looking there gorgeous garden. He must have noticed on my husbands passport that his birthday was the next day and when we went down for breakfast the next morning he immediately came out and wished him a happy birthday and served us both champagne which we thought was so sweet. The breakfast was fantastic, yogurts, meats and lots of cheeses, all kinds of breads, jams, nutella, it was very fulfilling. My parents friends met us at the hotel the next morning and he served them coffee while they waited us to finish our breakfast, they then stayed that night in one of the rooms that backed onto the garden on the ground floor which was a nice very nice room. I would highly recommend this hotel, it was very central, an easy walk to either train station east or west, not sure which one it was closer too as we used both. A very short walk to the city centre as well.

Room Tip: If you have a lot of luggage you may want to request one of the larger rooms.
