I have visited the Belvedere many times now. The main reason is that it is a very welcoming friendly hotel with very comfortable rooms and fantastic views of the mountains. The rooms have an old-fashioned feel but with modern fittings which is nice. As it's an old building the sound insulation between rooms isn't always too good, so inconsiderate noisy neighbours have been an issue on a few occasions. All the staff are brilliant, and couldn't have been more helpful. As I have recently visited with young children the staff have also been great with them, even helping them with learning some Swiss and German. Meals are a buffet selection (I think it's the only hotel in Wengen that offers this) which is also good for children, but the chefs are first class and the food is excellent. Also some unusual dishes were on offer (eg Zander cooked in ratatouille) which made for an interesting dining experience. We also had a free packed lunch from the hotel every day, which was a nice touch. The hotel is conveniently located for the town, rack railway and cable cars. If I have one adverse comment it's that there are no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms. But overall I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a quiet comfortable stay in this great resort. Wengen is a great base for hiking and mountain-gazing, and it's almost completely traffic free.
