The hotel has an excellent position if you plan to go on with the train, i.e. the Glacier Express. You're ca 100 m from the station (no problems sleeping though). Our room was very big and had room for a sitting group of furniture and a sofa. The owner? (receptionist/breakfast manager) was extremely friendly and forthcoming. She even prepared the... More

With no particular expectations, we booked a room at the Hotel Europe to make an early-morning connection to the Glacier Express. To our surprise, the hotel offers not only convenience (it is directly across from the rail station, and perhaps a 100-meter walk to connect with the Glacier Express), but very good accommodations. We had a third-floor room, overlooking the... More

Hotel is very well located, in front of the train station to Zermatt, and very close to the city center. The reception staff is very friendly. The room are simple, big and clean. It is a good 3 stars hotel.

She helped us park -- on the hotel property and too.k our bags while we headed for the train station. Later Connie welcomed us after our day of touring. The rooms were clean and neat. The... More

Decent sized room in the centre of town. They upgraded us free of charge to a larger room, the consierge was very friendly and helpful and the room was clean. Comfortable beds, furniture in good repair. The walls and doors needed painting but not a big deal. A little noise from the road and train station opposite, but not so... More

Like most the main attraction is that the hotel is close to the Train which goes directly to Zermatt. Or, you can catch the Train to San Moritz here too! Convenience when traveling by train is the key. These hotels are basic. Rooms, small, very simple. Bathrooms tiny. Breakfast, no great shakes. Skip it if you are really on a... More

We have stayed at the hotel for a night and I was impressed by such friendly staff. Unfortunately I do not remember the name of the receptionist, but he was very helpful and polite. Sometime even in 5 stars reception staff is not that professional.

My overnight stay was unfortunately quite disappointing. The only positive point was the very convenient location - across from Brig railway station. Fare for a single room was 85CHF/night, admittedly a cheap rate when considering high Swiss prices. Breakfast buffet is included. Otherwise I experienced many unpleasant things. I reached the hotel at 10:15pm to find that the front door... More

We stayed in this hotel for a weeks Eurostar "ski-train" holiday. It is a great litle hotel, everything you need and run in the traditional efficient Swiss style. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Choose a room at the back, you can get a balcony and has views to the mountains.

A family run 3-star close to the railway station. Clean and tidy and the staff were most helpful. Breakfast buffet had a good range for a hotel in that grade. Room was spacious and ideal for my stay. Road traffic and railway noise may be an issue for some, so request a room not at the front of the building... More
