“Great hotel in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2011

This was my seond stay at this delightful hotel and its got signifcantly better since last year. The new manager and chef have raised the standards and the place has a great feel. With the station 2 minutes away and a ski run ending almost at the door this really is a great place to be based.

Hotel Caprice is very well situated for a skiing holiday; metres from the end of a piste and a short walk to the railway station. The rooms were kept beautifully clean and the staff were very attentive. But best of all was the food - a top class restuarant meal every night.
We were made to feel very welcome and will be back if at all possible.

We stayed at the Caprice with our three children. This was our second visit to Wengen. During our first visit we stayed at the Park Beausite. The Caprice was much better located, and much more intimate and charming. Christian the owner took such good care of us. Our rooms were clean and well decorated, and had beautiful views. We enjoyed the very lovely breakfasts in the dining room, and the lobby is a lovely place to have a drink in the evening. Wengen is a perfect base for exploring the area, and the Caprice is very conveniently located in Wengen, close to the train and an easy stroll to other restaurants in town. We will certainly stay at the Caprice during our next visit to Switzerland.

We had a wonderful 4 night stay at the Caprice Wengen. The hotel manager Christian was incredibly helpful in advising us and the entire staff went out of their way to accomodate our 9 month old baby. The views are beautiful and it's also extremely convenient for short shopping trips in town and the numerous hikes on offer. We have stayed at many hotels with the small luxury hotel distinction and this is definitely one of the best we've ever stayed at based on the extraordinary service.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for a few night last week. We stayed in a spacious suite that was decorated with elegant style. All the rooms of the hotel have incredible mountain views. Christian, the owner of the hotel was delightful and extremely helpful to us for our questions about biking and hiking. He is very charming, as is his staff. We also had dinner in the restaurant and the food was excellent. Christian recommended a great wine to go with out dinner. Breakfast was also good, typical of all of the Swiss hotels. You can order eggs with the chef, which I always like.
It was the perfect place for a romantic trip away. I could not think of a better location for a hotel. I would also return with our two children and take the two bedroom suite which has TVs in each room and a DVD player in the children's room which has two single beds and one single bunk above. A perfect luxury family room.

I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting the region. Many of the other hotels are on the other side of the road and do not provide these views. The hotel has a simple elegant and modern style which I loved. I am sure Christian will take good care of you as he did us.

The Caprice is a small, quaint yet magnificent hotel in Wengen Switzerland This June I went on my fourth trip to the Jungfrau area and my first to his small mountain village. The snowcapped mountains are breath taking and the best view early morning from our room.
The dinning room has an ambiance that is beyond no other. The gourmet food is to die for and the par excellent European flavor is first rate.
I am booking for next year at this fabulous place in Wengen. Christian and Monica are most cordial and their genuine hospitality are the real reason for my return.
