Hirschen is a little far from the station, but very much worth it! It was wonderful to stay in a 300+ year-old chalet. We didn't see any other place in Interlaken that had the authentic Swiss Alps atmosphere like this. The rooms were comfortable, the staff were kind and helpful, the breakfast delicious. I heard that some people don't like the old chalet feeling with low ceilings, creaky stairs, etc., but for us it was magical.
