The price was excellent for this hotel, which was why we booked here. The room was very dated, but I don't really care about the decor in a room in which I am just going to sleep. When I saw the location, surrounded by apartments, I thought I would have trouble sleeping, but I had two fabulous nights of sleep.... More

I dont generally like to part with lots of money for a room one simply SLEEPS in. Brigg defies my best intentions. because of its location it can command high prices. hotel central was one of the least expensive options and we booked our first night there through Booking.com. We arrived late due to a train snafu and Phillip, at... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights whilst visiting the area for our honeymoon. Brig is a perfect base in order to visit the surrounding mountain villages, with excellent transport links. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the railway station and has free parking if you are driving. We hired a car and took full advantage of... More

Hotel Central aka Hotel Steakhouse Central was one of the hotels we remembered very fondly. They went out of the way to help us in so many areas: - did us a really nice favour knowing it's our honeymoon - helped us find the schedule for the different trains we were taking - got their restaurant's kitchen to warm up...

We hadn't booked anywhere and were searching for a reasonably priced hotel that offered parking. Hotel Central was exactly that, easy to locate, priced okay with breakfast and wifi included. It is a standard 3star hotel but was very clean and although the staff spoke no English, we felt comfortable and attended to throughout our stay.

We arrived in Brig late in the afternoon and were looking for a place to stay the night and found the Hotel Central on Tripadvisor. We spent 1 night there on our way to Leysin. The room was spotlessly clean, very large with a comfortable bed and a clean and modern bathroom. The WiFi worked perfectly. The breakfast was tasty... More

We booked this hotel over the internet and hoped for the best! The hotel was easy to find, had free parking and was close to the lovely centre of Brig. The staff members were very helpful, we had a comfortable, quiet room with a small deck which meant we could open the doors for some fresh air to sleep at... More

This was a very nice hotel within good walking distance of Brig town centre. The rooms were large and well furnished but would have benefited from air conditioning. The views from the room were spectacular. The Hotel has a good restaurant and serves an adequate breakfast. The Staff in the Hotel were extremely pleasant and helpful and their advice really...

I usually find myself writing reviews for places that I have loved or at least liked, but tonight I find myself writing this review offline in a hot, stuffy, miserable room in the Central Hotel in Brig, Switzerland, hoping to prevent someone else from making the mistake of staying here. There are two buildings to the Central hotel, the main... More
