We were a group of 6 adults and 2 kids in extended family and we wanted to start our journey on board Glacier Express from Chur. We were coming from Luzern and wanted to spend a night and morning of the next day at some hotel. Hotels in big cities such as Luzern and Interlaken are highly overpriced. Therefore, we chose this hotel in Weesen near Ziegelbrücke.
It turned out to be a very good choice.
The hotel is just in front of the lake Walensee. You need to take a bus from larger Ziegelbrücke station to reach Weesen (The bus stops just in front of the hotel.) Or you could walk from Weesen Train Station.
From some rooms (like one of the rooms we had) you get a grand view of Walensee and snow-clad peaks.
The check-in procedure is a bit of an issue if you come after the normal hours. The hotel does not have a 24x7 manned reception. If you come late in the evening, you need to hunt for one of the waitresses and she will help you check in.
Once you zero in on the person to do the check-in, it doesn't take much time.
We had 1 Quad and 1 Double room. Bathrooms were large and clean. The rooms themselves were just about the right size (going by European Standards). As said earlier, one of the rooms had grand view of Walensee. The facilities provided in the room were standard (Soap, Sheets, Radio Alarma, TV), nothing fancy really. No water boiler and tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
The breakfast too was nothing great to talk about. Pretty standard. A couple of varieties of bread, milk, cereals, joghurt, canned fruits, coffee/tea, juice, Croissant and Mineral water.
We paid 280CHF for both the rooms in total and thought it was a nice value for money accommodation.
