My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Hotel Lotschberg, Interlaken West in September. We liked the location, the friendly service, comfortable room, delicious breakfast and the living room.
The walk after we got off the train at the Interlaken West Railway station to the hotel was an easy and short one. On the way to the hotel, we passed the Migros Supermarket to our delight.
Mr Beat welcomed us but as it was only around 12 noon, our room wasn't ready. We left our luggage at a corner in the 24/7 living room provided by the hotel. Beat was very helpful in providing us information about both the Lake Thun and Lake Brienz cruises, and suggested that we visit the Giessbach Falls.
This is a hotel with only 18 rooms and the room we got was of a good size and it is very comfortable. There's a living room on the ground floor where dining tables and chairs, coffee and tea, cutlery, wine and beer glasses, dishes, a microwave and an electric kettle are provided for all guests to use whenever they want. There's also a fridge where guests can store the food items they have bought and cards with room numbers are provided to be used as tags on the food. In a separate chiller, a variety of drinks, beer and wine are also provided at a charge but it is a "self service" style where one takes the drink and put the indicated price into the piggy bank voluntarily. I appreciate the trust given by the hotel.
Christian checked us in after we returned from our afternoon adventure. He is a cheerful, warm and pleasant guy who speaks good English. Just like Beat, he was generous with suggestions for dining and shopping.
The breakfast spread was good and able to fill our stomach so well that we were able to skip lunch those 2 days when visiting Bern and Jungfraujoch as time was tight for us. They were able to serve the breakfast punctually at 7 am, so that really helped us as we left as early as 8 l:10 am for our fully packed days.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a good location and the option of buying food from Migros Supermarket to enjoy in the comfort of the spacious living room of Hotel Lotschberg (without having to wash any dishes after use).
