Hotel Bach
Ranked #9 of 11 Brig B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We came on the train to Brig for 1 night, and thinking it was within walking distance were slightly panicked when we realised it was up the mountain. However the tourism info was very helpful and told us the right bus to get, which came fairly regularly. It was signed, but still hard to find and we were walking the wrong direction before a friendly local stopped to help! Everyone in the area was really friendly and had good english. The hotel was very quiet with beautiful views, and nicely decorated with flowers and looked very traditional. Tea, coffee facilities were provided with a clean bathroom, and clean bedding, and all the rooms have amazing front facing balconies with amazing views. The lady running the hotel went out of her way to help us, looking up buses to get to a restaurant as there is little nearby and we had no car. She ended up driving us to our meal! Breakfast was quite pricey but there werent many other options than going back down to Brig, and did include a nice variety. For the price we paid it felt very professional, safe and relaxing. I would definitely go back, but maybe with a car and for longer to explore the beautiful region.

Room Tip: Double check room includes a balcony because they are large, safe and amazing views. Rooms on the hi...

A very unique hotel where you can hold a family piano concert at the salon and get tickled by some 50 doctor fish.
We also enjoyed all fresh foods at breakfast over Bach played by Glenn Gould.
The hotel is named after the great composer after all (we guess).
The owner and staffs were very friendly and helpful.
It's a pity that their hardware is not as good as their software.
A small investment is needed especially in bathrooms so that entire floor may not be wet after taking shower.

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. The view from the sofa on the terrace outside the room was amazing.The hotel is located at the top of the hill so you look out over the town, vallley and mountains. We sat there for a few hours and enjoyed the view and the quietness. Room was large, quiet and clean and there was an excellent powerful shower. The staff were very friendly and helpfull. Directly opposite the hotel there is an excellent restaurant which I would recommend.

We stayed here one night while driving through the alps and surrounds. Staff were friendly and the outdoor terrace had a great view. As far as Swiss prices go, we found it to be good value.

Best of all though was restaurant Zer Mili across the road. It was delicious and the waiter was so friendly and helpful ensuring our dietary requirements were catered for even though we couldn't read the German menu. The food was delicious and the view breathtaking.

I stayed for a night to visit Zermatt. The hotel is located on top of the hill and 10-15 mins by car from Brig station.
The room was small and dark, the shower room was also small. The TV had no English channel. Our room was at the back and had No view. The good things are 1. Free Wi-Fi (however our room had extreamly weak signals and sometimes no signal) 2. The room price was cheapest in the area. (but I don't think value for money..) It's ok for stay over for a night. It's an hour to Tash by car to get a train to Zermatt.

Only used as an 'overnight stopover' but we were made very welcome by the Hotel Manager as soon as we arrived.

This Hotel however is conveniently situated near the Town of Brig where in fact we were staying for a week.

Beautiful, roomy bedroom with lots of 'Swiss Charm' - lovely and clean and the bed so comfortable.

Balcony with splendid views over the Valley into Reideralp.

Enjoyed a continental Breakfast with the usual cheese and ham (I prefer a good old English Fry-Up) but lots of fresh bread and jam served in a very charming 'restaurant'!

Excellent place to stay for a holiday - or indeed just overnight.

As soon as my wife and I stepped into Hotel Bach we were greeted with warm welcomings. The owner came straight to us with a smile, shook our hands and showed us to our rooms. Before I go any further, if you are looking for a hilton or holiday inn feel then this is not the place for you, but none the less this hotel is a great place to enjoy your vacation to the Swiss Alps. The rooms have a rustic style to them with original furniture mixed with great TV. So many channels to choose from. The beds were very comfortable. You have a great scenic view no matter what room you are in. We had breakfast and that was fantastic too. A nice European style with bread, cheese and differents meats. They also had cereal and coffee and tea. Its in a great location on top of the mountain overlooking Brig with the train station only five-ten minutes drive. The city makes sure all the roads are salted up and safe to drive on so you will have no problem driving anywhere. If you are having any problems or questions feel free to ask the boss or the receptionist and they will be more than welcome to help you. Always had a smile on their faces. I have to say that out of all the places and hotels that I have been to, the people at hotel back are the nicest people I have ever met. I will miss them. Great place, great location= a great vacation.
