Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 28, 2013

This hotel is located well with a good view of the mountains, it's definitely our dream hotel! However, I made a big mistake and almost messed up our honeymoon, another "Hotel Edelweiss" in another town far away here was booked wrongly ;(
Fortunately we met Daniel, this hotel's boss, although he was very busy with the hotel business, still helped us call other good hotels in Wengen to check that if there was available room for us (because his hotel was full), and also helped explain our mistake to another "Hotel Edelweiss" we booked wrongly, so that we were able to save lots of booking charges. Finally, we got a good room in other hotel with Daniel's help! I belive that if you stay here you will feel that it's like your home for the beautiful and relaxed surroundings and the warmhearted boss ;)
Daniel, I wanna say thanks a lot, and we will come back to this fasinating town and stay in your hotel in some day!

Our 4-night stay in early July was just fabulous. Wengen is a beautiful town with easy access to all attractions in the area (i.e., mountain hikes, waterfalls, paragliding, trains). The managers, Daniel and Susanne are the nicest, friendliest people we have met. They are knowledgeable about the area, provide maps and advice depending on your interests and are just helpful in every way. Hannes, the chef, is just as friendly and prepares incredible dinners at affordable prices. The breakfast buffet was delicious as well. The rooms were comfortable and clean. We felt like family and wish we could have stayed longer. This was certainly the highlight of our trip.

We stayed for two nights here in July, and we loved the hotel. We had a room with a balcony on the mountain side and the view was fantastic. Daniel, the owner is very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. The breakfast buffet was very good, the beds are very comfortable, the bathroom was small, but had great water pressure and the location is good. We would stay here again if we were to come back to Wengen.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the mountain side view.

This is the spot for any avid hiker. The host, Daniel, greets you and gives you a mini tour of the facility. If you are a hiker, he takes you out to the garden, with map in hand, and shows you the best hikes and points in the direction you need to go. Additionally, they have an in-house chef who makes incredible food for a very reasonable price. You won't regret the meal. The other staff are equally as nice and very helpful. Don't miss this place. We wished we had stayed longer!

Room Tip: When booking, request a room with a view.

Just finished a 4 night stay at the Edelweiss in Wengen. Never been here before but have been to many alpine resorts and hotels. Wengen is a great place to base yourself to hike this region, which is absolutely breathtaking. Be prepared to soak it all in and ignore the prices as you cannot get away from the cost in this area. The hotel rooms are not huge by any means and the bathrooms really are tiny however this is standard for this resort. We had a good balcony off the room with awesome views of the Jungfrau glacier each morning. Overall this hotel represents excellent value but more importantly the hoteliers Daniel, Martin and Susanne along with the other staff are the most friendly people who will help you in whatever way they can to enjoy your stay here as much as possible. This comes from their knowledge and obvious love for the area and their passion to share it with their guests. This is the reason I really could not recommend this hotel highly enough and would return in a heartbeat. Don't expect 5 star flash and polite but standoffish staff, what you get is a true home away from home, oh and the food in the hotel was great breakfasts we overate because it was delicious and the evening menu was good too, exceptional value, and the main course was served to us by the Chef himself. Don't miss the specialty beers! If you don't enjoy yourself here there will only be one reason.......you.

Room Tip: Get a balcony

The hotel was perfect for our needs in every way! The hotel rooms were well proportioned, ours had traditional Swiss decor, which was topped off with a big balcony overlooking the breath taking Jungfrau. Daniel and Susanne, our hosts, were also wonderful - with great suggestions for ways to fill our days and nights, and a thorough local knowledge which made you feel like you were seeing wonders that only the locals know about. The hotel restaurant served delicious 3 course meals for dinner - perfect in taste and portion size - right down to specifically chosen wines each night. The attention to detail and wonderful hospitality made our trip to Wengen better than I could have possibly hoped for. I'll be back for sure!
