“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

Really great value. In house meals are excellent value. Décor fairly basic but Daniel and his wife are totally delightful and very helpful. Below the main street in Wengen and the cable car/train station which you need to catch to get to the snow so 72 steps to climb or descend but not an issue if reasonably fit. Skis and boots kept for free at a shop right next to the cable car so no need to walk in ski boots. Daniel happy to pay for a free taxi when arriving or departing with luggage because of the hill. Took us less than 5 mins from the hotel to the main street and the train station and cable car are at the hotel end of the main street. Not good for disabled .

Room Tip: In a quiet area of Wengen, so not important.

My family of six (Mom, Dad, and four teenagers) HIGHLY recommend staying at Hotel Edelweiss in Wengen Switzerland. We stayed there for 8 days and truly had a wonderful time. Daniel and his staff were extremely accommodating, considerate, and very pleasant. Daniel and team were very helpful in planning our events and went the extra mile to insure our needs were met. We ate breakfast and dinner each night at Hotel Edelweiss and it was fantastic - authentic Swiss cuisine, yet not too eclectic for any of our teenagers.

Hotel Edelweiss offers a charming, quiet, and very pleasant environment to insure a delightful family experience in the Swiss Alps. The only bad thing about Hotel Edelweiss was saying good-bye.

I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Edelweiss, and here is why:

1) Daniel is a fantastic host who makes all the guests feel really welcome. All the other people I met at the hotel were also very nice and warm. It was truly appreciated, especially since I was traveling solo this time. Many hotels boast a welcoming staff and great service, but this one really is a standout.
2) Cozy room with a really comfortable bed and a fabulous view.
3) A very convenient location just a 2 minute walk downhill from the train station.
4) Delicious 4 course dinner for 25 francs is a great deal, and I highly recommend that you take advantage of it.
5) One of the courses at the above-mentioned dinner was a quark souffle, and it was TO DIE FOR. Seriously the best dessert I had over the course of my 2-week trip around France(!) and Switzerland.
6) If you are here for skiing, the hotel offers a locker space in the ski store right next to the lift, which couldn't be more convenient. The lift itself is just behind the train station, so probably a 3-5 minute walk away from the hotel.
7) Breakfast buffet was plentiful and delicious, with eggs, cheeses, meats, yogurts, jams, breads, etc.

Loved my time in Wengen at Edelweiss. Would love to come back!

We stayed for a week in March in this easy-going, friendly hotel. Not flash, and without the superfluous frills of other Swiss hotels, it was a relaxing place to be. Our room 109 had a fabulous view of the Jungfrau, and evening sun on the balcony. Reasonably priced, good quality dinners, and excellent breakfasts. Lovely hosts (Daniel and Susanne).

We stayed here for a week in March. Staff was really friendly and helpful. View to Alps was spectacular from the balcony, and 4-course meal was both very affordable and tasteful. We highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

A fantastic staff that make us feel like home. Good food in the restaurant. Close enough to the railway station and the main lift (5 min. down, and 7 up :) ) Lockers for ski and boots at the ski rental including in the room price. The host organized a Free taxi from the hotel to the railway station ( without asking ) when we depart. A lovely week with good friends in a perfect place.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony, facing the mountains
