The Hotel Lotschberg (think restored Victorian style large home) is conveniently located about a 5-7 minute walk from the train station through a lovely residential area. When you open your windows and look out, you see typical Swiss houses, not busy shops and restaurants. Above the houses, in the distance, you'll see the mountains, just waiting for you to explore!
Hotel Lotschberg is convenient to everything but with a relaxed, removed from the hussle of Interlaken, feel. A plus is the Migros grocery store on the corner not far from the hotel.
Rooms vary in size from small to large. All rooms are more than adequate in size and no different from most European style rooms. There are 19 rooms in different sizes.The larger room I stayed in last is great for a family with room for an extra bed. Traveling solo? The single room at the top of the stairs, with a good sized bed, has a mini balcony. It's a great choice when available. If you need a hairdryer or alarm clock, the front desk can accommodate you.
Susie, Fritz and their friendly staff will treat you like family. If you've been traveling a while, you'll appreciate the washer and dryer available for a reasonable cost. Internet access is one computer in their sunny breakfast room. While enjoying that last cup of coffee you can catch up on your emails. For an adrenaline rush, consider a dual hang gliding experience with Fritz.
The website is www.lotschberg.ch. This property is a good value for families, travelers on a budget, and backpackers looking for a little bit of a splurge, something above a hostel.
