Woke up and ate breakfast at the hotel. Cried a bunch because the weather sucks and it's our last day here so shaun doesn't get to see why I absolutely love this place. Moped around all morning. Finally Shaun dragged me out for a walk and I moped for half of it. Then we came across a covered bridge over this beautiful blue river and hung out there …
Took the train to Interlaken. I'm kind of disappointed - the ride was SO spectacular last time but the weather is so bad today the land is just covered in fog and you can't get a sense of the grand scale of things. We got to Interlaken and checked into our hotel, then went on a walk looking for a McDonalds (because Shaun wanted some $12 McDonalds, …

The weather was bright and sunny though the temperature noticeably dropped as we climbed, putting on more layers as we went. Some were clearly not prepared for the climatic changes of altitude! One guy had his photo taken wearing flip flops and what looked like a tea towel wrapped around his waist - must have ...

So, in the meantime we have arrived in Singapore and are getting ready for our next stop in Australia (in fact we are already in Australia when uploading this). Although we are only here for a few days we will max out on food and meeting friends. Stayed tuned for kangaroos, dingoes and laid back Australian life-style in our next blog entry.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Goldey Unterseen
Best value stay in Europe
Stayed at the Hotel Goldey for three nights. The Hotel and gardens are in excellent condition, staff are super friendly and helpful. In the afternoon there is free tea and coffee and cakes for guests in the lounge. A beautiful setting overlooking a canal with mountain views - its simply a beautiful place to stay and extremely good value too.
My wife and I picked this hotel for an overnight stop due to the reports of other Trip Advisor members. We were not dissapointed.
We selected Hotel Goldey sight unseen based upon a hotel guide we obtained from the Swiss Travel Bureau.
A beautiful place!
This is exactly what we had in mind for our honeymoon....excellent views, great room, brilliant and discreet service
lovely breakfast, welcoming staff !
Both stations are close, just about 10mins walk...the hotel is surounded by lovely flowers!
what more can you ask for?
If you are staying in Interlaken this is THE place to stay!
We stayed at the Goldey for four nights in July. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly, and the breakfast was just incredible. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and of good size. When you walk up to the Goldey for the first time it looks a little dated, but once inside you are blown away. They even have T-Mobil wireless with a starter kit that includes 4 free hours. At the front desk you can get train and attraction tickets, and they even accept all the various discounts (Eurorail, Swisspass, etc.). No waiting in line and the staff are very knowable on all there is to see and the best ways (i.e. trains and busses to take) to get there. Oh yes, free coffee in the afternoon, a great pick-me-up.
Really nice place
Wonderful hotel and really nice staff. It is a bit off the main drag in Interlaken, but still only 5 minutes from the center (pleasant walk).
Very nice staff. The only downside is that it is close to a train bridge, and if you get a east-facing room, you WILL hear the train as it goes past. Even given that, though, I'd stay here again for sure.
We picked this hotel due to other reviews on this website. Really glad we did, friendly hotel, great views, great position and good breakfast.
Certainly recommend it and we would stay there again.
Excellent Choice - Goldey TOP Hotel, Interlaken
Excellent location - on the river, close to city center / restaurants, train stations. Absolutely beautiful views. Very curtious and helpful (reception) staff. Good value. Very relaxing & peaceful setting.
Great Hotel, absolutely breathtaking views. staff are very accomodating, perfectly positioned for excursions to the surrounding mountains. Been to several interlaken hotels over the years but this was without doubt the best one.
