We were looking for a hotel in Wengen with great views, and the location of the Hotel Belvedere is perfect as it sits above the village of Wengen with (almost) unobstructed views of the Jungfrau and the Lauterbrunnen valley. I booked directly with the hotel and asked for a room with the best view possible. Our room, 306 was on the 4th level and had a magnificent view which we could enjoy from inside the room and the small balcony. The room was small and recently decorated by somebody's grandmother, including an ancient TV. The bathroom was new and clean. The breakfast buffet was very nice and had something for everyone. We stayed for dinner two nights and the fixed price meal had 3 entree choices, unlimited salad, soup and dessert and was a bargain at 25 Swiss Francs. The wine list was excellent with wines of Italy, France and Switzerland. The hotel bar is very relaxing and the overall feel of the hotel is old-timey, complete with old furniture, some antiques and quite a few pensioners. There was also an old reading room/library and covered porch. The hotel is located up the hill from the Wengen train station, about a 10 minute, easy walk. Service from the hotel staff was very friendly and excellent all-around.
