Stayed in a 2 bedroom/bath, living room with balcony suite on top floor for several days. Located near a gorgeous church and a short walk to both train stops in Brienz, ferry stop and bus stop. Walked across street to hotel restaurant/lobby for breakfast. Town is small and lovely...the road less travelled.

A beautiful room, decorated with wood, a quite spacious balcony with view to the mountains, beautiful houses and a fall. All green and so calm. The bed are very comfortable, the bathroom is spacious and everything is very clean. It's true that you can hear the church bell every 15 minutes but when the balcony door is closed, you don't...

We had a room on the top floor, It was quite large, and had a small balcony with a fabulous view of the lake. Bathroom in this suite was good sized, with a nice shower. The mattress was maybe a little more firm than I like, but the bed was comfortable enough. I'm not crazy about the fuzzy fitted sheet...I... More

View of the turquoise Lake Brienz on one side, and rocky cliffs (with waterfall of course) on the other side, the surrounding scenery is just spectacular. Room is just so-so with old furniture and church bell keeps waking me up at night. Decent breakfast. Overpriced for a Swiss B&B

We selected this hotel last year because Brienz is very close to the open air museum of Ballenberg. Because of terrible weather conditions we cancelled the morning of the day we were supposed to arrive and the hotel kindly allowed us to hold over the credit to this year. So we finally made it to the Brienzerburli last weekend and... More

Room very expensive with middle quality service. Bathroom too small with very old and useless tap. No shampoo. Tremendous pillows. Good TV. Normal quality breeakfast with a romantic location close to the lake.

The Brienzerburli is an authentic Swiss Chalet type of hotel. I have stayed there twice. Once in a budget double room which was definitely budget but I returned because the hotel itself is great. This time We stayed in room 31 which is a superior double room and it was perfect. The bed was comfortable with lots of space and... More

The Brienzerburli Hotel in Brienz is on the main street towards the west side of town facing the beautiful lake. We visited on a nice warm day in September, exited the train station, and drug our bags to the hotel. Too far to drag heavy bags, upon arrival at the hotel I realized they had a van that would have... More

This is a very 70’s hotel. It definitely stuck back in time! Our room was on the front of the hotel with a small balcony overlooking the lake, though the view was obscured a bit by a large tree. The bed was ok, and as I’d read on here the sheets were dirty its one of the first things I... More
