Grandhotel Giessbach Review

Overlooking the famed Giessbach Falls, this 19th-century Belle Epoque showplace trimmed with fancy woodwork and topped with turrets offers lovely scenic views from almost any vantage point. The lobby has high, chandeliered ceilings and period furnishings in golds, yellows, and soft pinks. Stucco angels, full-length oil portraits of Swiss beauties, and other Proustian touches will have you feeling like an off-duty aristocrat in no time. Guest rooms are comfortable and spacious. The Park restaurant has a glorious orangery overlooking the falls, while Le Tapis Rouge is a serious gourmand affair.
