Fabulous 8.6 From 96 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great staff and clean place.
Overall a great experience. The owners, Tim and Kat, are super nice, friendly, and of great assistance. They gave excellent advice/recommendations and helped set up any activities for us as well. The place overall is great and very clean. The only negative thing is that they didn't have an elevator so it was a little difficult because we had a little one with us. But having said that, the highest floor takes only 2 flights of stairs so it wasn't that big of a deal at the end. Enjoyed staying there overall.

Staying here is a must!
The Aarburg was outstanding! Our hosts Tim, Kat and Martha felt like old friends just minutes after meeting them, extremely helpful and accommodating. The location is phenomenal with incredible views. The room is slightly larger than the bed, but it was still perfect for the two of us. Laudromat is next door and minutes by foot to every major point in town. I give my highest recommendation to this b&b. Would absolutely stay there again if we make it back to Interlaken. Thanks again guys

Very Good 8.0
Attractive choice
The Hotel Aarburg is an attractive choice to stay in Interlaken. About a 10-minute walk from the Interlaken West station, it is situated in a largely residential area facing the River Aare (and the Jungraujoch when the weather is right). There are several good restaurants within a five-minute walk. The main commercial streets are only a little bit further. The hosts are very friendly and the continental breakfast, while less ornate than other hotels, is of a high quality. The rooms are small but the beds very comfortable. I do feel the very high rating on other travel services is misleading. There is no elevator, so you have to lug your bag up 2 ½ flights of curving steps. The room does not have any chairs and for some reason I was told the lobby was closing at 9pm. Such minor touches as a box of Kleenex were not to be found unlike five other hotels we stayed at. The front desk is open in the morning, closed during the middle of the day and reopens from 4pm on. We were told that planning in advance this could be adjusted but when you are dependent on flights and customs it’s difficult to know exactly when you will be arriving.

Great place & people; TIP: Know the check-in times
We loved our room overlooking the water at The Aarburg. Clean, stylish, no TV (this was a plus for us, as it led us to have conversations and get good sleep). Important note: the office is only open for specific hours, so know when those are or you'll be locked out. The place is too small to have an around-the-clock receptionist. The breakfast was excellent, and Kat and her husband (sorry, name forgotten) answered all our myriad questions about Interlaken, surrounding areas, and Switzerland, as well as our espresso-fueled tangents. Also, there's a kitchen/lounge you can cook in, or get hot water for tea (as we did). We took long walks along the river, which is the bluest, cleanest water we had ever seen. And the Jungfrau was jaw-dropping, if extremely busy. The whole experience was amazing. If/when we return to Interlaken, we'll try our best to stay here again.
