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 ...
... It rained pretty much the whole time we were there, so it created this eerie fog over the mountain village. Unfortunately, everything in Switzerland is really expensive...and I found myself paying 22 frank for a lemon chicken dish on the first night. It was delicious though so I was willing to temporarily splurge, and also indulge in a couple of Felshlashen beers (I have no idea if that is the spelling because I usually just call it feldshlashaslasha). For a non ...
... slower start run was still pretty fun- they have these stupidly sharp turns that you can't make- basically the track hits the ski track but shoots off at a 135 degree angle so you don’t go over the ski run. But you go that fast you can’t turn in time, spin out and start heading down the ski run backwards. It was another awesome day.
We decided that night to get out of Switzerland due to the costly nature and head to Cinque Terre in ...
... rain. More hours of driving and we arrive at canyon no.2. It's raining, the heaviest rain apparently and that one is also canceled. Dang.
We get back to interlaken in the afternoon and I have just enough time to run to my hostel and back to the train station. I'm running down the road, jump onto the sidewalk, back onto the road, X-tream!!!!!!
Interlaken, a nice town, 1.5 days of not really anything. I should be more organised.

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.
