“Clean, modern, Gorgeous lake view”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

BEAUTIFUL view of the Brienzersee. The hotel itself is clean (really like the hardwood floors in the room) and very comfortable with a super large balcony. This place is probably more convenient if you are driving (we were not), as there is nothing to do in the town itself. There is a bus and train (less than 5 mins walk to hotel) that takes you to Interlaken Ost, but they are fairly infrequent, so you better familiarize yourself with the schedule and plan your day accordingly. There is also a ferry which is great for sightseeing in Brienzersee (free with Swiss Pass). The ferry stop is just over a 5 minute walk from hotel (pretty steep downhill walk, so be prepared if you plan to go TO the hotel via ferry). The view, however, is absolutely awesome.

This is an easy walk from the train station - very close. This hotel was modern and clean. The rooms were spacious. We had a corner room on the first floor. The lake view was just beautiful - turquoise blue. The balcony was large. Corrine at the front desk was fantastic (as were all staff). Corrine gave us lots of pointers for visiting around the area. Breakfast was nice and varied. One note: we found only a limited number of places to eat close by, so plan on stashing some food in case you get hungry later on at night. We would definitely stay here again.

We've spent one night in this hotel that is not si engaging when looking from the outside.
However, once we arrived in our room, wow, the view is amazing.
The rooms on the first floor have big balconies, and the was is renewed. Only the bathroom decoration seems to be older (so seems to be some other part of the hotel like stairs). It is really clean and quite.
Furthermore we were warmly welcomed by an English lady who gave us all indication we needed for our short stay.
What else to say that having the breakfast on the terrasse on a sunny morning over the lake is really peacefull.
We do recommend this hotel if you can afford it.

Room Tip: The first floor rooms have bigger balconies.

The Hotel is on a pleasant location, by the Brienzersee Lake. Having breakfast outside is amazing. I would return, for sure. Our room was ok, on the 4th floor, without lake view. The only bad thing is the elevator only goes til 3rd floor, so we had to take the lugagge 1 floor up the stairs.
The rooms with lake view are great.
Our very special thanks to Corinne, she made everything to please us there.

This hotel was the perfect start to our vacation. The breakfast was delicious with good coffee. Our view over the lake was unmatched on our trip. The hotel is tucked away but in walking distance (or a quick train ride) to interlaken. If I ever return to Switzerland, I will stay here again!

Two couples celebrating 100 years of marriage we talked our husbands in to coming to Switzerland for 4 days before our river cruise. Purchased Swiss Rail Passes and used them for all transportation, trains, busses, ferries etc. From airport and on to Vienna, Austria 4 days later. Beautiful. We actually walked from Interlaken to the hotel (yes it was 45 mins or so, with luggage!!! No one told us we had to just change trains in Interlaken, knew hotel was 3 mins walk from train station - Ringgenberg train station NOT Interlaken lol) Fun, beautiful walk along the canal and river, hiking/ bike trails, across the train bridge and cute, narrow roadways lined with B & B's finally to arrive to a wonderful reception at hotel. Immediately sat out on the patio overlooking the beautiful lake and later, checked in to a spacious, clean, new and modern room. Big balcony and bathroom. Very pleased, we did find the hotel on line and checked with Trip Advisor before booking. Breakfast was really well done with much to choose from. Typical European spread eg. eggs, cold cuts, cheeses, plain yogurt and pre-packed, cereal, real granola etc. Comes very highly recommended from our group. Would def return to this hotel and area of Switzerland, very central to everything you would want to see.

Room Tip: Request lake view for sure. We were on the 2nd floor and it was perfect (we had husbands to carry l...

The location is unbelieveable - high above the lake in the quiet village, the railway station on the one side, the boat staion on another. We'd got the room with the terrace with 2 armchairs and a table on it, the room itself was spacious too, with a fullsize bathroom with a bathtube. Our teenager had a single room with her own terrace too which is quite rare in my experience :)

The breakfast was very good with lot of unexpected things like vegetables, waffles and soft-boiled eggs; and it's served on a terrace above the lake.
You can't cook in the rooms but there are tea/coffee facilities.
The nearest supermarket is in Interlaken, in front of the station (Ost). All of the restaurants are in Interlaken too. There is only one restaurant in the village - in the old hotel Milan. We ate there once... I couldn't recommend it but if you're really hungry and don't want to (or can't) go to the town - it will do.
I will definetely recommend the hotel and I would stay agian though I can't imagine what to do in this blessed place ;))

Room Tip: Rooms with a lake view are must have
