The location of the hotel is great. Close to the railway station and with a wonderful view. The welcome and check-in was friendly and very easy. The room was in good condition but the furniture very old. The "Alpenschick" of the entrance area has not been arrived in the room yet. However, the size of the room was good and... More

We stayed for 2 night's over new years at hotel caprice. Views from the valley facing rooms are amazing/breathtaking, no noise at all from outside or inside the hotel means a very sound sleep. Breakfast was ok (selection of meats, cheeses and eggs etc) The food we had from the restaurant for the New Years meal was exception value and... More

You will love staying here for the views. I found myself just hanging out on the balcony often, admiring the views of the snow capped mountain. Room is pretty old and dated but still looked clean and bright. We informed the hotel we were here for our honeymoon, no surprise gift or card, so maybe this is the norm for... More

Stayed at this marvelous hotel for 4 nights and had a truly memorable stay.. We were two families with young children, and the family suite in this hotel was just perfect.. Very nicely done in Swiss style with lovely wooden decor, but the real gem is the attached terrace overlooking Jungfrau and the valley.. We spent half of our time... More

Just up from the train station, so fantastically easy to get to. Warm welcome and very comfortable clean rooms. One of the most enjoyable aspects for us was sitting out on the balcony to our room looking down the valley. Such fantastic views. It is possible to hear the falls. Tea from downstairs taken up to the balcony on returning... More

Lovely small hotel overlooking the Lauterbrunnen Valley. The mountain range framing the valley looks like a postcard. The Caprice is very close to the train station - an easy walk with luggage. The restaurant at this hotel was outstanding - the best in Wengen.

We chose the Caprice to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary based upon previous experience at this select location. John Patrick (JP) provides gourmet selections for evening dinning with artistic presentation. The views to the Jungfrau region are exceptional. The management and staff extended great hospitality and recommendations. To honor the occasion of our 50th, we were upgraded to a suite... More

The view side rooms have a stunning view of the Lauterbrunen valley and the high Alps beyond - possibly the best scenery view of any hotel I've stayed in. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Located very close to the Wengen railway station. Trains don't run at night so there is no noise. I can't think of a single negative thing... More

The Caprice Hotel has all the elements to be one of the "must stay" places but doesn't quite reach the standard. The location is superb being just off the station with the junction of the Main Street, it has possibly the finest views in Wengen and the small nature of the hotel gave it the opportunity to be perfect. However... More

My husband and I spent four days at the hotel Caprice last week on our trip through Europe. Although it sounded a drag having to park at Lauterbrunnen and catch the train to Wengen to get to the hotel it was in fact very easy and a pretty journey on the little train in its own right. If you are... More

Dear Bessiegal, Thank you very much indeed for the excellent and comprehensive review you have posted on Tripadvisor. I appreciate your very kind comments about the hotel location, the views, the spacious rooms and particularly your comments about the restaurant food and the waiting staff.
