The location was excellent, adjacent to the railroad station, and easy walking distance to most activities. The hotel had a good restaurant and offered free internet access. Staff was especially helpful with all questions and requests. The staff upgraded my request for a balcony room to provide a room with balcony overlooking the river.
The price of the room was well above my budget, but that is Switzerland, one of the most expensive places in the world to visit.
location was great. Great room with river view. Large room large bath. Service was great. Food was great. they helped with directions and getting tickets for the train. Very helpful and friendly staff would recommend the hotel to others. Enjoyed our stay.
the Hotel classic stale it was amazing
Quiet though little sound from railway station.The bed room and dining room were luxury. Good staff.Location is near Interlaken Ost rail way station.Beautiful scenery behind the hotel.Value for the price.
Some little sound from rail way station.
Wonderful location next to the railway! The staffs are extremely friendly. Especially Zaki who help us to check the schedule of trains and advice us in the route to Zurich.
The pillow is too soft for my prefence. other than that everything is okay
We enjoyed the position of the Hotel - close to all amenities. The friendliness of each and every member of staff - and their desire to go the extra mile in making our stay really special. The front desk staff were very special and made us feel special - and never tired of answering our many questions. Their suggestions on things to do were extremely hepful. Our gift of chocolates were delicious and a lovely touch.
The only suggestion I have is that there was not a hair-dryer in the room which would have been helpful -
Breakfast was wounderful, staff were great. Everything about Du Lac was super wounderful
Efficient, friendly staff. Clean room, well appointed, great view.
There was noise from the railway station unless you shut the window. Proximity to the station, however, was a big factor in choosing the hotel.
The location is good, if you choose to go to other places from here, it is very conveniently located right next to the train station (east!) and the boat dock. Of course, you can also choose to stay either in Grindalwald or around the west train station, which is probably what i should have done. The staff is very friendly and helpful, especially the young guy whose name i think is Chris (?). They have a good restaurant that has a nice menu, and lots of locals seem to frequent.
The train station could be noisy for those sleepless ones. Also, room is not big or modern, could use some work to keep it look more attractive.
My brother and I enjoyed our first stay at the Hotel du Lac - the rooms were comfortable, the staff helpful and friendly, the food was good and the location ideal for train travel.
There was nothing at all to complain about although we would have liked the possibility of bacon and scrambled egg at breakfast on weekdays as well as Sundays.
Location - easy walking distance from Interlaken East rail station and from the plaza where city buses stop. Hotel provided bus pass for free travel within city limits. Staff was really helpful with directions. The staff also provided us with a breakfast lunch "to go" , because we had to take a train at 0700, requiring us to leave the hotel at 0630. I would stay at the Hotel Du Lac again.
There is no AC in the rooms - at least our room did not have it. It was not a problem during our stay, but could be if the weather was very hot. Because the hotel is located directly accross from the Interlaken main rail station, it is noisey if your room faces the rail station. This did not bother me, because I am a rail fan. Our room had a balcony that faced the rail station, so that was OK with me. I could see that the noise from the trains might annoy someone who did not appreciate trains. The food in the dining room was very good, but pricey. We had dinner there only once during our three- day stay.
Very good location, just 1min walk from interlaken Ost station. Rooms are clean and big with lovely design. Very good service especially the Chinese young man Ian, he is very helpful and nice. Very good breakfast with beautiful river view. Will stay again.
My staying in Hotel Du Lac was so comfortable with my family overally. The room was clean and breakfast was good also Expecially the staff was so kind and and made me and my family satisfied and impressive. I would like to appreciate the staff. My family was satisfied with this hotel. Next trip, I will choose this hotel 100% and I can recommend to my family and friend. thank you.
All of the management was very helpful and provided great recommendations on prioritizing what to do in the little time that we had there. The woman who managed the hotel was excellent! Also great people providing services in the breakfast room- very friendly and helpful. Somewhat pricey but all of Switzerland was pricey. Loved the dirt trails along the river that led to a run around the Lake.
The receptionist is very nice. Breakfast is good.
Remember to book riverside room, not only for good view but also for quiteness. Otherwise you have to bear the noise of trains during nights and early morning.
