Stayed in this lovely quaint hotel with friends as we were getting the Glacial Express the next day from Brig to St. Moritz. Beds we’re comfortable and shower great. Staff were friendly and we had eggs and omelettes cooked to order. Felt it was good value for Switzerland and a great location in the middle of town and only 4 mins from town
Amazing place, we just love it and for sure we will be back soon. The breakfast is top and we loved the way we are able to enjoy the Wohnstuba and his drinks etc. Good situation in the center and the live band on Friday was great.
From the welcome where the host/manager/owner greeted us by name, to the quality and cleanliness of the room, everything functioned like a precision Swiss watch. Friendly, service minded, and ultra efficient. Perfect. I highly recommend this hotel, right down to the muesli served at breakfast...
The hotel is really nice, with adorable staff, comfortable bedding and a lovely Wohnstuba concept. But I had chosen to overnight in Brig where I work because of an early start the next morning. It was unfortunately not possible to sleep, as the pub/club under the hotel played loud music until after midnight - on a monday evening, which I didn't expect. Closing the window didn't help as the sound resonated in the building. Once the music stopped it was fine though. It's such a pity that this detail spoils a night whereas the hotel and staff put so much effort into an enjoyable stay.
Great service, homely atmosphere, center of town, great terrace to have a glass of wine on, great rooms, great bathrooms with Milton&Brown soap, what's not to like? We loved it and will come back. The only downside is the noise from outside in the summer months and the heat in the room, both of which can be resolved by a fan that the hotel provided. Lovely.
Very modern, tasteful, casual and super-friendly. Home away from home! Although in the middle of town very quiet at night. Nice views and hotel staff are very friendly, helpful and attentative. Will visit again.
We had a fantastic stay over New Year 2020. I cannot say enough about how nice the Staff were. Always helpful and readily available. Perfect communication over the holiday period. They even went as far a mailing back my daughters headphone after she left them in the bed. Free of charge! Thank you. Brig is lovely town with easy rail access to Zermatt and the surround area. The hotel is fully refurbished but still retains its original character. Would definitely stay here again in the future.
the location is very central. that can mean that is a bit loud in the weekend evenings. the rooms seem to be all different. mine was large enough for one person. on the 4th floor. nicely decorated. not too loud. no view but light. breakfast was fantastic. personnel is extremely nice and helpful brig is a nice little town, well preserved. with some major historic sites - the castle amongst them. Stockalper was a major family / figure in swiss history. and the stockalper hiking trek starts there. Brig to Simplon pass and then to Gondo
Stayed here with a small group, occupying three rooms. This is a nice, centrally located small high-end 3 star hotel in Brig. The town is small, nice, quiet, without major sights, and mostly useful as a place for stopover when visiting the Alps in Wallis or traveling between Switzerland and Italy over (or under) the Simplon pass. The rooms had been recently renovated thoroughly (and with good taste): nice basic furniture, and nice basic bathroom. We had a family room with a queen bed and a separate single bed. WiFi worked well. There is no aircon (you must keep windows open in summer). TV in the room would be a nice addition, but no problem without it. There are spacious common areas on the 1st floor, including a large breakfast room and an outdoor terrace opening to the central square. Breakfast was not very extensive, something one would expect in a small hotel. One major problem, however, concerns room #206 (a family room), which does not apply to a similar family room #306 one floor higher. This room #206 is right above the kitchen of a neighboring restaurant. The kitchen windows are open all evening (at least in summer), and the kitchen staff has a table on the street right below the #206 windows. Whenever something is fried in the kitchen, you can smell it in the room, very clearly. And when the restaurant staff are having a break, they will be sitting at the chairs below the window, talking (and this is often), and their voices echo in the narrow back alley facing #206. In summer it is warm, and you want to keep the windows open (no aircon in the hotel), and then it is noisy and smelly in #206 way after small kids' bedtime. Room #306 is totally different: it is higher up, has views partly over the roofs (including mountain), and no smell and no noise. The hotel should fix room #206, or offer it with a steeply reduced rate in the summer months. A fix would be a low-power airconditioning unit that would allow cooling the room and keeping the windows closed in the (late) evening to avoid the noise and smell.…
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night only. We were welcomed at check in with any drink we desired. We were then shown to our room which I can honestly say was the cleanest hotel room I have ever stayed in, and there have been many. The bed and linen were comfortable, towels fluffy, toiletries of high quality. On arrival there was a apricot tart, if we wanted to partake, and the next day this was a rhubarb strudel. Both were delicious. Breakfast was fresh, well,presented and the chef prepared eggs, etc anyway you wanted them.we were offered pancakes later which looked lovely but we did no sample. We did stay on a Friday night and there is a downside which sadly the proprietors of this hotel can not control. There is a British style pub downstairs, and they are open until 2am. When they closed it was exceptionally noisy and we could not sleep despite being supplied with ear plugs. Noise did not settle until three :-(. My suggestion is ask for a room on the other side of the hotel, not overlooking the ‘town square’, if your stay in on a Friday or Saturday night. The manager was extremely apologetic about the noise and is frustrated too. There is no A/C only heating. This is a beautiful old building and I suggested to the Manager that the addition of ceiling fans would go a long way to the comfort of sleep, especially on the moist nights that you cannot open the windows, which she took well. Hopefully this is something easy that can be done. …
