10/10 Exceptional

The property is in the middle of an amazing natural park with view on the beautiful Brienz Lake and the Waterfalls. I love the atmosphere of the hotel it is like travelling in time (don’t expect AC which would spoil the architecture and design of the place). This is very charming and very peaceful to stay here. There is a funiculare to access the lake. Awesome breakfast with view on the waterfalls.

8/10 Very good

Wonderful stay and a beautiful location! Just would recommend avoiding the rooms above the salon if there is an event going on. We had room 119 and it was like being at the party until close to midnight.
