“Awesome View from Every Room!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Popped into Wengen on way to Jungfrau...no reservations!

Looked for hotel with best view! For Berghaus, gave them a ring and the had a room. Within seconds they had a car down to get us at the station! Great service.

Room was perfect, and I swear while you may spend more at other hotels, the view from here is unbelievable! Steps from the gondola as well for a quick jump to alpine hiking!

Don't miss dinner here either! Martina will spoil you! :). We will be back!

Room Tip: Call from train station at kiosk if you don't want the short walk....

We had a very nice holiday at hotel Berghaus. The staff (a family) is really friendly and helpful. They made a cake for the birthday of someone in our group. There is a very nice living room with sofa, chimney, good wifi, chairs and tables, and it's very quiet. The rooms are simple and clean. The only point that could maybe get better if I can say is the food. We booked half board and we didn't really like it but other people seemed to be happy with that (other reviews). I think it would be better if they would cook more simple and lighter things. I highly recommend this hotel which is in addition located right in front of the ski slopes and 5 minutes walking from the shops and train station.

Stayed here with my family over the new year. Couldn't have picked a better place. The location is just outside the main town with lovely view. The rooms are well equipped, the restaurant food was gorgeous, and Martina and staff couldn't do more to help out, especially when my wife injured her leg skiing.

Absolutely would pick this hotel again for any return back to Wengen, summer or winter.

Just returned from family trip to Wengen staying in the Berghaus. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The food was terrific and plentiful! The standard rooms were smallish but great for a ski trip when you are pretty much out of them most of the time so you don't want more than a comfortable, warm, clean place to sleep. But one of our groups stayed in the suite in the top of the hotel which was really roomy and would be great for hanging around in if that was wanted. The views from the rooms were spectacular and one of the nursery slopes was literally right outside the hotel. Staff were lovely and so accommodating to the children (and me as a vegetarian). The atmosphere was so relaxed and really added to the enjoyment of our trip. Everything within easy reach including the fabulous Sina's bar which became our favourite happy hour haunt!

Room Tip: If you're wanting time to lounge around go with the suite but for an active "out of hotel&q...

Stayed here for six nights and didn't want to leave. The family who runs this gorgeous mountain house is extremely accommodating and always on hand, ready to assist your every need or request. The hotel is simply beautiful with the best views in Wengen, with exception of the gondola, of course, which passes overhead.

I had a south view room with a lovely balcony which offers the tranquil scenes of the small village, surrounded by all those magnificent snow-capped mountains and the valley far below. One can never ever grow tired of that phenomenal view.

I chose not to do the half-board, did the bed and breakfast option and thoroughly enjoyed the abundant selections offered each morning. Various local alpine cheeses, deli meats, all kinds of beads, eggs, fresh fruit, juices, milk, coffee, tea, yogurt, cereals and jams...what more could you possibly hope for? Martina and Marcella always greeted me with a cheerful 'good morning' and happy smiles, while they attended their hungry guests.

Mr. Fontana and Martina was superb with advice, always checking the weather forecast and offering hints with which days to do the Jungfraujoch and Schilthorn, what trails to hike and which villages to visit and the best ways to get back and forth i.e.; bus, gondola, train, trails. They aim to keep their guests content and satisfied and they do an awesome job of it.

By the way, if you take the gondola to Mannlichen, it is a very easy, but rewarding hike to Kleine Sheidegg, where you can catch the train to Jungfraudoch, saving you some big bucks. For a more challenging climb, you can hike to Kleine Sheidegg directly from Wengen.

Before I booked my trip here, I was contemplating staying in different villages and moving every other day. After taking some very good advice from another well-seasoned traveler, I chose to base myself in Wengen and am so glad that I did! Out of all the villages I visited in the Jungfrau region; Grindelwald, Gimmelwald, Stechelberg, Murren, and Lauterbrunnen, I am so thrilled that I went with Wengen.

One last thing I do want to add, Wengen has very limited free-wifi available. Rock's Bar offers free unlimited wifi, you only have to purchase one drink. The Tourist Center offers free-wifi also, if you have a guest card which you can ask for at your hotel. Other than that, most hotels do charge for wifi. Hotel Berghaus offers free landline internet service, but I needed wifi to upload my photos to my tablet for my family (just to rub it in a bit)...it was a simple solution and a quick, easy walk to the local bar and a cold, refreshing beer.

Room Tip: choose a room with southern exposure!

We have stayed twice in the Hotel Berghaus. Its hard to find words to describe the particular magic of the Berghaus. It feels like home, but a version of home where a glass of wine is brought to you as you sit by a roaring fire and then move on to a wonderful 3 course dinner which you didn't have to cook and go upstairs to your cozy, comfortable bed that you did not have to make and know you will wake up to a spectacular view of the mountains and a hearty breakfast and great cappuccino served to you by the kind staff. Best of all, if you bring your children, they will always find something they love on the menu and likely they will make friends with other kids and will be busy playing cards between courses so you and your spouse can chat over dinner. Herr Fontana-Fuchs and his daughter Martina are the magic makers and you will not find more friendly and helpful hosts in all of Switzerland and perhaps indeed the world :)

Room Tip: Pick a mountain view room. If traveling with kids the family room is fantastic.
