Hotel Bären - The Bear Inn, Interlaken
Great place to stay and eat
If you are planning on seeing Interlaken or the surrounding area, this is a great place to stay. Staff was helpful and, in addition to being a good place to stay, the dining was great. We are there the night we arrived in Switzerland because we were too tired to look elsewhere. We ate there the next night because we knew it would be impossible to find better.

All in all-not recommended
Pros-300 year hotel, nice small town and good restaurant, good customer service at check-in. Cons - The hotel is 10mins uphill walk from WIlderswil station which can be tough with luggage and if rain, bus station is 200ft and closer which was good. No elevator. Room was not inviting at all and Carpet in room was very old and run-down and also run-down dirty tile in the very tiny bathroom. Bathroom had a step which would be uncomfortable for older folks. The mattress was uncomfortable and the worst was the road noise. It was a hot summer day and with no AC, you needed windows open but couldn't sleep due to traffic and people noise. Its an experience to stay in 300 yr hotel but if you cant get sleep, its not worth it. The hotel was pricey too so you got no value really. WIFI was nonexistent in rest of rooms, we had poor WIFI it as we were close to main lobby. The breakfast was OK but lady keeping tables at breakfast then was rude. She screamed at us when we asked a question. The restaurant charged us in USD and not CHF and made us victim of Dynamic currency conversion. They didn't ask us before and when it was brought to manager's notice, she was rude and said they didn't have to check before charging us in USD- WRONG. We felt cheated then.

Very Good8.0
Breakfast was great. Room was small. View and staff were great. Wilderswill is a much better location than Interlaken, much more authenic, and I have been to this area at least 15 times.

Brief stay in Interlachen
The management was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was very good and service excellent. Room was a little tricky to get to...on the other side of a conference room requiring help to navigate. Room was dated and a little tired looking but was clean and bed was fine. Would recommend.
