Comfortable, quiet, tidy, scrupulously clean hotel uphill from Wengen main street. Pick-up and drop-off service at railway station. Amazing views of the mountains from the balconies on both sides of the building. Good standard Swiss breakfast buffet with eggs perfectly cooked to order. Functional, basic furnishings with a scattering of fine older pieces and artworks. Double rooms and bathrooms small... More

We have just returned from a lovely stay at the alpine resort of Wengen where we welcomed 2015. The hotel is situated perfectly to enjoy stunning views. Very clean, warm and welcoming after a day's skiing. The arrangement with a depot to leave skis and boots is wonderful and allows skiers to walk through Wengen in comfort stopping for an... More

Breathtaking view from my balcony and one of the few hotels open during the low season. Decor was a bit dated, but everything was very clean and comfortable. And located at the high end of town, you can't beat the views, esp. from the balcony. Included breakfast was breads, meats, cheeses, fruit, juice, cereal, yogurt and coffee/tea. I checked out...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Alpenruhe Kulm Hotel. You cannot drive in Wengen. Therefore, must ride the train. (Leave your car at the carpark in Lauterbrunnen. You can make a reservation ahead of time). The hotel will come pick you and your luggage up at the station. There is a phone to call them (unless you have a... More

The hotel is situated on the north side of the village 10 to 15 minutes uphill walk from the train station. But if you tell the hotel when you expect to arrive in Wengen they will be there to collect you and your bags using a little cart. The elevated situation affords spectacular views of the Jungfrau and the mountains... More

This hotel was great and would stay here again. The Owner/Manager and staff were very accommodating. The views are spectacular and unobstructed. I faced out to the valley. Nothing like waking up and seeing fresh snow, by sunset it was all green from the comfortable balconies off the rooms. Service was great. Yes, an uphill walk from train station, but... More

Went with my young son to Wengen. Arrived quite late and was met with a smile. Room was small, but adequate with very comfortable beds. The view from the hotel was spectacular.. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the station up a slight hill. The view is thus unobstructed and magnificent. The hotel will fetch you from... More

The Alpenruhe Kulm was a lovely place to stay. It's a bit on the edge of town (and uphill from the train station), but if you give them a call they'll come pick you and your bags up in a little cart. We didn't test their hospitality too much, but I have a feeling they'd do just about anything you'd... More

Switzerland is expensive in general, but man this hotel seemed expensive! It was really the only hotel available in Wengen and Interlaken for our travel dates, so we had no choice. The room decor really needs some updating, but it does add to the charm- the wifi was also touch and go. The staff were friendly and accommodated for early... More

Stayed here for two nights, using Wengen as a base to explore the region. The room was pretty spartan; there wasn't much room to move in the bathroom; breakfast was also fairly minimal. The location is fine, away from the very centre but, Wengen being a small place, the walk to the station is only 5-7 minutes. My biggest gripe... More
