Reviewed October 16, 2010

We stayed for one night....found the 196 CHF a bit steep for the accomodations...they were somewhat old and worn out....but we had a corner room #24....right on the lake..with a balcony....so... Now...the strange thing is, we noticed that the Emergency Exit signs in the hallway....led right to our door...not understanding this, we asked the front desk and they confirmed that yes, in the event of an emergency, everyone on that floor (same arrangements on upper floors) would have to exit through our room !!! What if our door is locked and bolted????? they were not sure.......we found this strange. Also one "older" female staff at front desk could be more welcoming....obviously not in love with job!

We saw the photo of the hotel on the internet, booked at the last minute, but only deluxe room with balcony available. We got lucky becuase it was a beautiful view right on the water front of the Brienzersee and the mountains all around. Some may dislike the ferry stop right in front but we had a small baby and he (and we) enjoyed that too. Rooms were fresh and clean, bathroom v nice too, large bed, also got baby cot on request no extra, a sofa bed + armchairs + fruits. Well stocked minibar but no coffee maker. A cosy family run hotel, cold (except boiled egg) but good bfast (part of cost) , other meals simple, tasty, expensive. Iseltwald itself was a revelation - a pretty, quiet, not very touristy village - just what we wanted. A great 4 days stay. Hope to do it again someday, maybe in winter. Will need a car if not very mobile as steep drop from main road to village. Else can use public bus from village square.

This hotel is situated on a beautiful lake, the purest in Switzerland. Breakfast comes with your stay. The rooms are very basic and if staying, definitely request a Lake View. We got an end room overlooking the lake, but also the ferry dock. Unfortunately the lights stayed on all nite, which was a bit distracting. I think the owner was a bit overworked and never seemed particularly friendly. However, we loved the area, even though bus ride to Interlaken was required. The hotel was kind enough to pay all costs for this.

Room Tip: Försök få rum mot sjön. Men båda hållen är lika vackra.
