“A perfect stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

The hotel was perfect for our needs in every way! The hotel rooms were well proportioned, ours had traditional Swiss decor, which was topped off with a big balcony overlooking the breath taking Jungfrau. Daniel and Susanne, our hosts, were also wonderful - with great suggestions for ways to fill our days and nights, and a thorough local knowledge which made you feel like you were seeing wonders that only the locals know about. The hotel restaurant served delicious 3 course meals for dinner - perfect in taste and portion size - right down to specifically chosen wines each night. The attention to detail and wonderful hospitality made our trip to Wengen better than I could have possibly hoped for. I'll be back for sure!

If you want to relax and unwind... Wengen is the place. We stayed only for 2 nights but guess we would be going back for a longer period. Edelweiss is a nice cosy hotel with very warm and friendly staff.. .. if you're looking for late nights and party then you would be disappointed.

Edelweiss, Overall is a nice place to stay but do look at the hotel website first; before booking at other sites. We payed and realized the hotel site was much cheaper. The bathrooms are very tiny but the beauty of Wengen compensates for any small negative experience.. Overall a lovely trip and will surely return.

Room Tip: I guess this place no doesn't need a special tip...

A fantastic hotel in a beautiful area of Switzerland. Daniel, Susanne and Martin are absolutely brilliant hosts and went out of their way to ensure that we felt welcomed and had the best possible stay. The scenery from the hotel is amazing and it is a great base for exploring the alps (walking, sightseeing etc). The food is excellent - we had breakfast and dinner in the hotel and it was absolutely top quality, and excellent service. We had an amazing time, felt like one of the family and would definitely recommend to other and stay again ourselves.

Stayed for two nights in Hotel Edelweiss in Wengen in July 13. The room was lovely with a balcony view of the alpine mountains. Bed was comfortable and fluffy! Daniel from the reception was very welcoming and helpful. The free breakfast was awesome too, with a good variety. It is good value for money! Wished i spent a longer time here. It would have been perfect if the room came with toiletries.

I spent 1 night in a single room at the Hotel Edelweiss in June, and I loved its affordable, spectacular views and welcoming hospitality.

I had initially reserved a double room for single use, but wasn’t fully satisfied with the views from the room I was first given because there were buildings within my line of sight. I asked if another room was available, and was very pleased to be given a room on the top floor that offered a much better view. Both rooms opened onto a balcony with dividers that give a bit of privacy. (The dividers don’t extend all the way to the outer wall of the balcony, so if security is a particular concern, keep that in mind.) My room was very comfortable and had a small, but efficiently arranged bathroom; the shower provided lots of hot water at great pressure.

The hotel had some other notable features. Daniel, the manager, was welcoming and extremely helpful: He not only facilitated my change of rooms, but also helped me deal with the unexpected closure of trail that I had intended to hike: He suggested an alternative that was similar in length and difficulty and that offered some wonderfully memorable views. The hotel has some very pleasant and comfortable common areas. And I thought the breakfast buffet offered a reasonable array of options.

I opted for the hotel’s very affordable half-board arrangement. My 4-course dinner started with a salad of cold beans with greens, tomatoes, and other tasty stuff, along with some delicious bread. Next was a flavorful cream of cauliflower soup. The main course was batter-fried fish with potatoes, rice, and vegetables; it was good, but not great – it was just the tiniest bit too “fishy” in flavor. Dessert included a satisfying dish of ice cream with kiwi, fruit sauce, and a wafer cookie. Service was friendly and attentive.

The Jungfrau was shrouded in clouds for much of my time at the Hotel Edelweiss, but she stepped out in all her glory for a brief moment during dinner, and although the dining room had lots of windows, I was not the only one who ran out of the building for the open-air views -- glorious!

My wife, myself, and a very close couple travelled to Switzerland for a 8 day stay. We picked Hotel Edelweiss based on Tripadvisor reviews of the region (Jungfrau) that we wanted to experience.
I can not say enough about the hotel, staff, food, and overall positive experience that we had at the Hotel Edelweiss! Loved this place - loved the region - loved Switzerland!
