Fodor's Expert Review Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel & Spa

Höheweg 41, Interlaken, Bern, 3800, Switzerland Fodor's Choice

Restoration has taken this 1865 grande dame firmly into the 21st century, with glitzy touches such as the burled-wood entryway and a vast belle époque lobby that spirals off into innumerable bars and tea salons. There are plenty of facilities, including a sprawling spa with a private room reserved for couples. Guest rooms are gorgeous, with smart fabrics, waxed wood floors, and marble columns. Nearly all take in the obligatory view over the meadow to the Alps, with the snowy peak of the Jungfrau crowning the far distance. Various restaurants and a bar serve European specialties as well as finger food and cocktails.
