We rose early in the morning in Gdansk to catch a 6 am flight to Cologne Germany where we would catch our connection to Zurich, Switzerland, where we arrived safe and sound early afternoon at the main station. We thought we would have a tight connection to our train, but being in the EU it seems you do not need to spend an hour or two in line to …
... Not quite so scenic and photogenic, but striking all the same with the Eiger as the prime backdrop. By this time, clouds were beginning to gather on some of the peaks as predicted so it was just as well that we seized the opportunity to do this today. After a bit of grocery shopping in the Coop we caught the next bus back to camp - I tidied up, started tea whilst David went out on his bike for an ...
... guests, Sue and Alice. Then I had lunch but not before bombing down another black as quick as i could just for fun. After lunch I had my lesson with Richard and the only other guest in the lesson was Patrick so is was a very good lesson. Richard decided to push me to my limits by suggesting we go under the safety rope just off the Eigernord chair and into the off-piste beyond. It was very scary but it was managed eventually and looking back up it was hard ...
... Next to a small mill – with work in progress – was an Alpkaeserei. Daniela got us some samples of the Alpkaese, or Alpine cheese, and it was very strong and tasty.
From Winteregg, everyone but us continued on to Gruetschalp, but since we didn’t have anything for a picnic, we decided to stop in Winteregg and have lunch at the little restaurant. We had “mixed” sandwiches (ham, cheese, salami) and Rivella, an herbal lemonade. We ...
... got about 30
seconds before the fog covered everything up. I was ******. I was
supposed to be above the clouds. I caught a brief glimpse of the awesome
mountains around through a hole in the clouds, but I was still biking
and didn't get a picture. After eating some kind of schnitzel, fries and
a piece of plum pie, I got another battery from the restaurant and went
down the other side. It was FREEZING going fast through the fog.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Roessli Unterseen
Fantastic Place to Visit
This is a quaint hotel with about 20 rooms of various size. No elevator/lift so luggage can be a hassel.
Owner was friendly and helpful. Offered lots of advice.
Hotel rooms do not have phones or air conditioning but neither are really needed for a short stay. Temperature was about 48 degrees F. for our trip. During this past March we were told thtat the temperature was about 80 degrees F which would be really warm without air conditioning.
Breakfast was good and promptly served.
Hotel was easy to find except when I came home late one night and walked right past it since the outside lights had been turned off.
Overall a very pleasant stay. Rustic and unique.
Wir waren das erste Mal in der Schweiz und wir übernachteten im schönen Familienhotel Rossli in Interlaken. Jean-Louis hat sich um uns gekümmert und sichergestellt, dass es uns an nichts fehlt. Von unserem Balkon hatten wir eine schöne Aussicht auf die Jungfrau. Ich würde sehr gerne eines Tages wieder in dieses Hotel zurückkehren.
Small hotel wonderful view!
We stayed one night on april 22nd in Hotel Rössli. Interlaken is a small town and this hotel is 2 blocks away rom the train station and river.
The price was ok; staff was friendly. We got a room with a balcony which we enjoyed very much.
The Rossli is a simple but comfortable hotel. The lounge/bar area resembles someone's front room at home (books & games available). The other guests really make or break it and unfortunately the guests when we were there were quite anti-social, so we went out a lot.
It was our first time in Switserland and we stayed at a lovely family hotel, Hotel Rossli, in Interlaken. Jean-Louis took care of us and saw that we had everything we needed. From our balcony we had a very nice view of the Jungfrau. I would really like to go back there someday.
We (2 retired adults) stayed at the Rossli for three nights in late May- early June. The weather had been unusually wet and cold - we actually arrived at the hotel around 3:00pm in a hail storm. However, the oh-so-accommodating owner made us feel warm and welcome. The small, simple hotel had small rooms that were very clean and quiet, with a balcony and great views of mountains. The hotel had plenty of parking and was close to the Interlaken West railway station and downtown shopping.
The Interlaken tourist office helped us find this gem when we showed up late in the afternoon without a reservation. Since we had a car with us, the ample free parking on offer, plus a very reasonable nightly rate for Switzerland sealed the deal.
Good for the price
Nice little hotel in a good location. Owner and staff were friendky although not necessarily that helpful with tourist information, although that was probably a language thing. Breakfast was OK and our room although small for a family of 4 was clean and well furnished.
Would definitely stay there again.
Nice Little Hotel
My wife and I have stayed in the Rossli six times since 1993, our first visit. Owner John and his staff, especially Jerome, have been very nice and accommodating. When you walk in and you haven't been there for a year or so, they remember you and its just like coming home after an absence. Not fancy but clean and comfortable. Nice location.
It was a very good experience. The host was real nice and friendly. The rooms were very comfortable (not huge but not very tiny either). The rates were pretty reasonable.Cons: Breakfast was ok, nothing special. 10 min walk from InterlakenWest & 15 min walk to info center. Activity bench not very friendly for yougsters (not a lot of info from the host side, acceptable from his stand point and age).Would definitely go back.
