Great location but?

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is well located with great views of the mountain ranges. It is dated and in need of some investment and tender love and care.Guests should be aware that the owner collects a tourist tax in cash on your first night, fortunately we had some Swiss francs. Trash needs to be placed in a specific bag. When requested from the owner we were advised to buy some at a local supermarket. Use of the washing machine is 10 francs for each day of your stay. It would be helpful if such details were advertised on the site. This our fourth stay in Brienz and can only rate this apartment 3 star simply because of the view.

Owner's Response: Guest was an experienced Homeaway user und rent himself. To separate the tourist taxes is the politics of homeaway,not from myself. every specific costs are on the homepage of homeaway. The garbage rule is coming from Brienz. I have given bags for free. Guest dont take the way describtion from homeaway and send SMS before arrival without name. How can i react? So the review seems very cost driven and a personal problem of one guest. They dont meet me at checkout as agreed at check-in.

great apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very spacious. the kitchen is fully equiped. Great view of the alps from the balcony - we loved to eat there and have copy or fruits with the alps view that changes colors with the sun and clouds. Plenty of power outlets and a good WiFi connection. We were a family of five, but there is space for more.

Feel like coming here again

  • 4 of 5

Chalet Sonnenblick is homely, quite and with a scenic view of Mountains and Lake Brienz. It is very well maintained, clean and well equipped. Very much suitable for 2 families with 2 separate toilets and showers. Near to local Bus Stop.

Brienz is a beautiful place for Vacation. Reichenbach fall and Aareschlucht in Meiringen is very near from here and really worth watching.

Mr. Rolf is friendly and flexible. We feel like coming over here again.

Chalet Sonnenblick, Brienz

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was cozy and well maintained, had huge living room with magnificent view of the lake and mountain. Quiet environment and accessible with public transport (bus with scheduled timing/stop at Schwanden/Brienz) take about 15mins of walking downhill to the nearest train station (Brienz) and supermarket . Taxi is expensive, cost CHF15 for less than 7 mins ride. Owner, Mr Rolf is friendly, helpful and flexible guy.

Overall the week stay was enjoyable and recommended for those who enjoy peace and quiet tranquility.
