I am looking for a hotel recommendation for 5 nights (starting 29th Aug) near Interlaken OST train station. This is for a lady travelling alone, so looking for something safe and convenient for travelling around Interlaken area. Budget is around $100 - $150 per night. Appreciate your help

I can recommend the hotel which I myself stayed in last month .

Hotel Du Lac right next to both Interlaken Ost as well as boat dock .just a minute walk from both and the closest hotel by far .I had a nice river view room as well as taken half board as the food was excellent .

the owner Mr Hoffman and his wife and daughter are excellent hosts and very helpful as are all the staff .

Im not sure about the rate though and whether it will fit in your budget .

I thought i got an excellent rate for the room I had with half board .

when i had gone in early June ,the climate was wonderful .Ive heard its a bit hot now but maybe by late August should cool again .

gl in your search

Good to know that, will give it a try. Any idea if prices will be same if emailed directly or more or cheaper from your experience?

I stayed at Interlaken west (next staion to OST). Best western - decent hotel. Was only 2 minutes walk from the station. One can have a leisure walk between OST & West. You will have to check the price. See the reviews on websites before you take a call. But location wise superb.

Apart from the excellent suggestions above (both hotels are just a few steps from either the Ost or West rail station), you can take a look at our Interlaken page. It lists several hotels, plus information on how to get there.

The budget is quite tight for Interlaken in August (assuming she prefers a private room and non-shared bathroom). If it can be stretched a bit you can have a look at the Carlton Europe hotel. It's along the main road connecting Interlaken West and Ost, 4 minutes on foot from the Ost station. They still have single rooms available for € 805.

Thanks All. I ended up booking Hotel Du Lac , 4 nights from booking.com and 1 night from the hotel website itself. 5 nights straight were not available on any of the website for the dates of travel.

The exchange rate must have jumped a bit since I last looked. ;-)

Still, not a bad for short notice during high season.
