“GREAT VIEW”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Booked a corner room with a spectacular view of the mountains. wrap around balcony with views out of both sides of the room. Breakfast was good and plentiful and the Hotel was ok. The downsides were that it was located far from town, impossible to walk with luggage (though they will shuttle you to and from the train station), but walking to the cable car and shops and restaurants was a bit of a hassle and not possible for elderly/less capable people.
The service was efficient but cool...not sure if they liked us or disliked us
And no refrigerator in the room and no ice available meant the food I bought sat out and spoiled. They only provided a glass of ice as "they arent in a positon to give buckets of ice to residents"
Again, I would go back to Wengen in a second but probably not here

Room Tip: Book a corner room for the best view

After 30 years of visiting Wengen in the Winter, we decided to try the Summer and we weren't disappointed. Hotel is as ever, consummate hospitality and amazing food. The Chef's soups are the best I've have tasted. How wonderful it was to dine out each evening on the veranda and to take part in the national Swiss Day celebrations. Lots to do and the views to die for! So sorry we pinched the Olympic Gold medal though...

Some may consider Switzerland expensive
And they may be correct in a number of areas.
One great value which has survived the decades
Is the classic Alpine Swiss hotel including a full
Swiss buffet breakfast and 5 course gourmet continental
Dinner. When you do the math it is excellent value.
Our family has made a tradition out of coming to
the pedestrian only town of Wengen in the Bernese Oberland
to hike the famously civilized walking paths and trails
all over the Alps. Staying at the Bellevue which is family run and is quiet
with an amazing view of Lauterbrunnen valley
and Jungfrau and Monch peaks. Traditional Swiss rooms
Simple but well appointed. The 5 course family elegant
dinner is a great way to introduce your family to a bygone era
of manners and the lovely staff are delightful in their very unique Swiss way.

We stayed at this hotel last year and returned here this year, so if that isn't a recommendation, I don't know what is! Wengen is a lovely village in a beautiful setting and the hotel is seven/eight minutes' walk from the station. It nestles more on the edge of the village rather than in the centre. The rooms are fairly small, perfectly well-equipped and spotless - the chambermaid was helpful and professional. Most rooms have a balcony, south-facing rooms have stunning views. Andi and Judith (the owners) and Christina, were at all times friendly, helpful, efficient, and multi-lingual. The food is excellent. Breakfast is a balance of the traditional - cheeses and meats - and the healthy - juices, cereals,fruits. Dinner is a highlight. The main courses are often to gourmet standard and local ingredients (often from the garden) are used where-ever possible by a chef who is known locally for his skill and expertise. If I'd paid about £30 in England for such a five-course meal I'd think it was worth every penny. There may be more vibrant hotels but we won't be staying at them. We will, on the other hand, be returning to Hotel Bellevue next year, as likely as not.

Terrific location, a bit off the beaten path, with helpful staff, delicious breakfasts, and staggering views of the Jungfrau and adjacent mountains.

Room Tip: If you can swing it, splurge and get a room with a view of the mountains and valley below. It's...

The Bellevue Hotel in Wengen, half way up to the Jungfrau, is certainly one of the very best places to stay in the whole of Switzerland. We have stayed in other places but, after discovering the Bellevue, we would never stay anywhere else.
In a sunny and virtually traffic free village, it is a traditional Swiss hotel but with the friendliest of atmospheres, amazing views of the valley and the mountains and a very talented chef.
Look no further.

Room Tip: South facing rooms have balconies with amazing views.

Hotel Bellevue in Wengen is the perfect home base to explore Berner Oberland. (Be careful not confuse it with Hotel Bellevue in Murren!) This hotel in Wengen is a quiet retreat with outstanding unobstructed views. Chalet-style home with 33 light and cheerful rooms, each with a balcony and choice of tub or shower; comfortable bed with duvet; hair dryer, combination safe, internet connection in some areas, no flat screen TVs, no A/C needed (windows and glass doors open wide to balcony), some steps involved, aided by lift, in getting to rooms, breakfast included in cost. Judy and Andi made me feel at home here (even though I was lazy and didn't try to speak a word of German). Their chef spoiled me with healthy and delicious dinners; choice of 3- or 5-courses (extra cost, but worth every SF). After a long day hiking in the mountains, I looked forward to, as the Brits say, a "proper meal". Most guests dressed ,casual, for dinner. Daily drink special served on the terrace or patio or in your room. Far enough from the train station that you don't hear the noise. I e-mailed and called (because I arrived earlier than anticipated) to make sure I didn't interrupt their breakfast or dinner schedule and was met and driven to the hotel in their electric vehicle. They also took me back to the station when I left. Expect to start your day hiking up the hill from the hotel to the town -- you go there for the exercise, right! My itinerary was to spend a week in Wengen and then moved to a different location. After 1 night at the other location, I went back to Hotel Bellevue -- thank you, Kristianna (sp?). Next time, I'll be sure to book my entire stay there!
