A very comfortable room, which was equipped with a massage chair to relax in, and plenty of herbal teas, also with a balcony looking at the lake and mountains, which we could never tire of. Excellent and friendly service. The breakfast was great too, plenty of choice.

My wife and I just returned from three weeks at our annual vacation home away from home, the modestly priced Seehotel Baren in Brienz in the heart of the Bernese Alps of Switzerland. We have been visiting Brienz and the Baren for 15 years. The Werro family, which runs the hotel, is warm and embracing and will go to great... More

Right on the shores of the beautiful blue Lake of Brienz... during the summertime jazz is highlighted during the "Montreux meets Brienz" jazz festival as the performers play on the outside terrace of the restaurant - La Belle Batelière - facing the lake! A few days of hiking in... More

On a nice tour through Europe we stayed at the Seehotel Bären in Brienz. The location is absolutely great, directly on the Lake of Brienz, with a superb view. The room is decorated in nice colours, good beds and we had also a balcony where breakfast was served for us according to our wishes. We enjoyed the Indian food which... More

I'm only giving this hotel 2 stars due to it's great location directly on Lake Brienz. The balcony views are outstanding and it's nice to hear the lake from your room. However, the hotel itself is very expensive for what you get. It's extremely dated. Extremely! The room is very small and has old, worn carpeting. The pillows are like... More

Time seems to have stopped at Brienz and particularly at this establishment. The rooms are old, from another era, with tired carpets and the faint smell of old smoke. My room had the tiniest bathroom, with one cubicle for the toilet and another for the shower. It was impossible to fix the shower to the wall so you had to... More

We recently spent two nights at this site with a lake view balcony on our room. The room price is great value when compared to nearby Interlaken and without the herds of tourists plaguing Interlaken. Ask for a lake view balcony with an in-room WC. We were only puzzled about one thing with this hotel. There were ample quantities of... More

We spent a couple of days at Seehotel Baren, after months of working non-stop, just to relax and get some Aryuvedic treatments. This was our second time and like before we were again pleasantly surprised by the friendly service and excellent food. The massages that Maurizio did help us enormously and we felt stress evaporate over the two days we... More
