I started my experience in the city at the Hotel Krebs, one of the most popular in the region. It was easy to find it as it is very close to the train station. Interlaken West and if you are looking where to stay in Interlaken, you already know that it is super well located.
The external architecture of the hotel is very beautiful. Inside, the hotel is old, but well preserved. There are 44 rooms and suites, which underwent a renovation process in 2008.
The hotel has over 130 years of history. It was opened under the name of Pension Cancer when it was built in 1875 on Bahnhofstrasse (Station Street) by Krebs family. At that time, the street was still surrounded by fields and it was only with time that different types of shops emerged around the hotel.
Interestingly, in this period a room cost 2,50 Swiss Francs (without water in the room) (R$ 8,88 at the rate of 10/06/2016), breakfast cost 1,50 CHF (R$ 5,33 at quote from 10/06/2016) while dinner cost between 2,50 and 3,00 Swiss Francs.
In 1890, it underwent the first expansion process. The second came only in 1927, when rooms with access to water were created. However, the hotel still had only one place to shower.
in the period of Segunda Guerra Mundial, served as a military base and only later in 1947 did it receive guests again. From there, electricity, an elevator, a bar and also a restaurant were introduced.
The hotel has passed through four generations of Krebs family before changing owners in 2005. It underwent a renovation and in 2008 it opened its doors again, now as a four-star Boutique Hotel. if you are looking where to stay in Interlaken, you already know what story you find in cancer.

It can be done at any time of the day depending on the availability of the rooms, but at 15:XNUMX it is recommended. In case you arrive at the hotel early and your room is not yet available, there is a safe and room to leave your belongings while you wait.
Check-out is between 07:11 and XNUMX:XNUMX. Late Check-Out is also possible depending on availability.
My room was a little cramped, but it had a big and comfortable bed. The decor was still a little old, but it didn't owe anything. The bathroom was very nice and spacious, well lit and very clean.
The price varies according to the type and quantity of garments to be washed, costing from 6,50 CHF (R$ 23,09 in the quotation on 10/06/2016) for a pair of underwear up to 20CHF (R$ 71,04 in the quotation of 10/06/2016) for a suit.

Internet and TV
Internet is included in the rate and works well in different parts of the hotel. Rooms are also equipped with TV and international channels.
I liked the hotel, for being four stars I think it owed in some parts, such as the elevator is super small and the hallway floor makes noise when walking. It is possible to notice that they are old structures, but the hotel intends to keep some of its history and tradition even though it belongs to another family these days.
Another factor that makes the Hotel Krebs popular is the terrace that on Sundays receives many young people who go there to have drinks and chat at dusk.
