Hôtel de rêve
L'emplacement est juste incroyable, face au lac de Brienz et aux chutes de Giessbach. L'architecture de cet hôtel est somptueux, ainsi que le mobilier et la décoration. Notre chambre était petite et sans aucun vue, mais la la literie était très confortable et la salle de bains très fonctionnelle. Magnifique petit-déjeuner inclus dans le tarif, servi dans la splendide salle de bal, face aux chutes.

Lovely hotel in desperate need of a renovation
The pros: Incredible location, fantastic views, stunning setting and easy access to great walks and hikes. Warm and professional service. Delicious breakfast and impressive dinner menus. The cons: Hardware is really old. Bedrooms are clean but in desperate need of a refresh. The beds are hard as rocks, bathrooms are extremely old. Heating cannot be manually controlled and hence rooms are terribly hot in summer. No blackout curtains in rooms, plumbing can be heard from room to room.
