Hotel Rössli at Unterseen, Interlaken

We stayed 4 nights at Hotel Rössli, a quaint family run B&B style accommodation located just 5mins walk from the Interlaken West train station.

Situated in the quieter corner of Unterseen old town, off the main tourist area in Interlaken, Hotel Rössli is also very near to Supermarkets such as COOP and Migros (near Interlaken West station). We always get our essentials from this COOP that is just 2mins away across the street from Hotel Rössli.

Other amenities nearby includes Bank, Pharmacy, restaurants all within walking distance in this non touristy old town.

We were allocated a room on the 2nd floor (Singaporean's 3rd floor), do request for a lower level room if you have lotsa baggage as the hotel does not have an elevator. This was our Double Room with ensuite bathroom (room 26).

Room was very clean, everything was working fine, the TV has a few english channels if you do watch TV while on vacation. Free Wifi is included in the room rate, login details are given at check in. Internet access is per device basis, so do request for one login for every device you owned (cell phone, tablets, laptops etc.). Signal level and speed was very good.

The reception is at the Ground floor (Singaporean's 1st floor), with an interesting room/main door key board.

When you are heading out, unplug the main door key and plug in the room key on this board. This is to ensure that you have access to the hotel's main entrance even after they lock up at 11pm at night. When you're in, unplug the room key and plug in the main door key. They'll do a demo so you get the idea how it works, pretty interesting concept actually.

They have a Living room and library area where you can hang out or have a drink at the bar. A kitchen where you can use the oven and microwave, and a laundry where you can use the washer and dryer at an extra cost.

Maps and travel info are available at the entrance. At check in, the hotel will give their guests a tourist card that offers some discounts on activities and stuffs, which we didn't use.

Breakfast is served every morning from 7-10am at the Breakfast room (Saal room). The spread includes breads, ham, cheese, eggs, fruits, yogurt, cereals and juices, buffet style. The replenishment was very prompt.

Daily freshly brewed tea/coffee
