“Warm and inviting”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights during our recent trip to Switzerland. It's around a 7-8 mins walk from the Interlaken OST station. The experience was absolutely phenomenal with Walter playing the perfect host. The rooms were bigger than what ud find in any decent hotel in Switzerland with ample sunshine and fresh air. Wifi was free and the breakfast was available at 7 francs which was top quality and an awesome price. The qty was also quite a lot so we managed to pack ourselves some sandwiches for the day as well for which Walter happily helped us with carry bags. He also suggested a few sights which no tourist agency which recommend and we were lucky to find the Trembache falls on his recommendation, truly a natural wonder. The beds were comfortable and although the bathroom is shared, it wasnt really an issue for us.. there is access to the kitchen where one can cook whatever one wants to and Walter sells beer and soft beverages cheaper than the supermarket!! While we were leaving we picked up a coke and an ice tea for our onward journey and Walter was so sweet he didnt even charge us for that.. we've stayed in some pretty expensive hotels in switzerland but this was a different and a highly memorable experience... if u manage to get availabilty, do not think twice before booking it...

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor with good garden views

Walter is a warm, friendly guy who provided us with good information about the area and about buying groceries. There is a huge Co-op grocery store across from the train station (a short walk from Walters B&B) that has the best selection for breakfast and picnic items. The room was very spacious and the shared bathroom shower was one of the largest we've ever seen in Europe. We didn't elect to purchase breakfast as we bought our own breakfast items at the Co-op. The only negative thing we saw was that our room didn't appear to have been cleaned very well as there were several long black hairs on the wooden floor. That said, this place is a great value for exploring the surrounding Swiss Alps.

Walter's is amazing! We couldn't imagine staying anywhere else for our stay. We stayed here for 8 days and loved every minute of it.

Firstly the room itself is quite large, with a comfy bed, our own dining table and a wonderful welcome supply of toblerones! We were sold as soon as we saw those! Free wifi is available in the rooms as well!

You share a bathroom and kitchen on each floor between 3 rooms. However for the majority of our stay noone else was on our floor which allowed us freedom over the kitchen and bathroom. Just an extra perk I guess! The bathroom is also very roomy and has a brilliant shower. Walter leaves a fresh stock of towels outside your room every day.

Breakfast is an extra 7 franc but is large enough to feed you for both breakfast and lunch. I honestly recommend the breakfast, it was one of our highlights of the stay. Every day Walter will knock on your door at the time you specified for breakfast and each day he changes up what you get. It was amazing!

When you arrive there is no reception so you can either press the buzzer or head upstairs to find Walter. Walter is extremely attentive, friendly and always around to help. The place itself is located in a quiet area just up from Interlaken Ost. The bus stop is only a 2 second walk from the B&B as well. Which is great as your tourist pass allows you free use of the buses in Interlaken!

I definitely recommend Walters to anyone who wants a relaxed stay! Or to anyone really!

Homey room for two nights with large rooms, nice hot showers and so quiet! Walter was a champion, so nice and Friendly and to top it off he left toblerones on our pillows! Not too far from town and close to the ski hire shop. Would highly recommend for a quiet stay in interlaken!

The B&B is easy enough to get to from Interlaken Ost station (mostly straight roads) and it'll take a good 15mins walk but 7-10mins run/jog (if one is rushing to catch a train ;))

To enter, just proceed up the steps and press the buzzer with a 'W' in the name. Yes, 'Walter' isn't on the buzzer namelist. Walter is rather friendly and he'd have your reservation slip/receipt pasted on the door handle before your arrival.

The rooms are huge! Walter also places some complementary postcards and chocolates on the bedside drawers to welcome you to the nicely kept room. Please bear in mind that he keeps the place tidy all by himself and the place is not a hotel. Those looking for a grandiose and well decorated room should look elsewhere.

I went there in late Nov 2013 and the rooms were well heated even though it was snowing outside. The toilet/bathroom is also huge and hot water is always available :)

Travellers looking to save some money may also cook in the kitchen which is well stocked with pots/pans/cutlery though it is recommended to wash them before usage.

Unfortunately I couldn't try his breakfast as I was only there for a night and had to leave very early in the morning.

Don't forget to sign off in the guest book before leaving!

Walters was a good 15 mins walk from the Interlaken Ost station. It is relatively easy to navigate. Just walk straight from Allmendstrasse (the road to the right of Coop), past two traffic round-about and you will find Walters B&B.
We were late (according to our stated time of arrival) and there was no one around when we reached Walters B&B. So we make our way into the apartment by ourselves from the door at the right side. When we finally found Mr Walters, he was friendly and had already prepared a room for us. We were greeted with postcards and mini Toblerone chocolates.
Our room was spacious. Our room is clean (we didn't find cobwebs) but not as sparkling fresh as hotel standards. There is a kitchen and large bathroom, both shared, but since there was no other travellers at the level that we were staying, we had the facilities to ourselves.
The corridor smelled a bit musty when we entered and the floor of our room was very cold at night (we stayed in mid Nov).
The place was quiet and we had a great view of the mountains at the South from the surroundings outside the apartment.
The location is slightly far for us (due to our heavy luggage), but it was a quiet and peaceful stay. Would recommend if you do not mind sharing bathroom and facilities, is not too particular with cleanliness and like a B&B with a homey feel.
