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.

Location was beautiful. Enjoyed the view of the lake and the waterfall hike. Service was great. Parking cost me 10 francs though. Given that this hotel is almost 150 years, I heard cracks in the floor when I walked around in my room. The bathroom appears to newly renovated. WiFi was great given its isolated location. The breakfast buffet was amazing and is definitely a must have.

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.
