“Fantastic!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This was our 4th time at the Hotel Alpenrose in Wengen, after a gap of 5 years or so. A family run hotel for many many years and now with one of the owner's daughters in charge. Afew upgradesin accommodation and decor since we were there before - but still essentially a Swiss family hotel. Incredibly in the hotel world the chef, waiters and reception staff were still there indicating the high quality of care and commitment of the owners and the fact that this is a family run hotel and family includes staff and visitors. Wengen is a stunning location and a south facing room with balcony was requested - on arrival we were upgraded as were our travelling companions to a large superior room with stunning views down the valley to a snow covered Breithorn. Breakfast is excellent and the dinners were superb, 5 courses (set menu new each day). We plan to go back next year before the walking legs stiffen up completely.

Room Tip: Go for south facing with balcony and wake up each morning to a stunning view

Many hotels and resorts will use the phrase "we treat our customers like family", but the Alpenrose in Wengen was the first hotel I have ever visited that really does.

If you are looking for an escape in a breathtaking landscape, and want to experience down-home family hospitality, book this hotel and go visit Wengen in the Lauterbrunnen Valley. You will not be disappointed! People have been returning to this place year after year for a reason.

From the moment you walk in the Alpenrose you will feel like a member of their family. And, each night after dinner, guests gather in their comfortable living room to visit with each other and exchange tales of travel. Truly exceptional experience.

The hotel is well appointed, the rooms simple and nice with modern bathrooms. The town of Wengen is small and car-free, and the rail/gondola service throughout the region makes it easy to visit all the sites - including a memorable trip to the top of the Swiss Alps. Make sure you get the "half-board" option with your room (breakfast and dinner). They have a wonderful dining room, and the food is good.

GO! HAVE FUN! Don't miss the beauty of this region and this wonderful hotel.

We read lots of good reviews and had high expectations. It exceeded all our expectation. We stayed in Alpenrose for 3 nights with a family of 4 (2 south facing rooms). The view was simply amazing. Staff has been the best asset of this hotel. Easily the friendliest hotel staff. It is only 5 mins walk to the station and we never had any issue with the uphill walk. Dinner is very good and my 2 kids are still talking about the amazing 5 course dinner. Absolutely loved our stay and would give it a 6 stars if we can. You will not regret it by staying at Alpenrose.

So where do I began... I was greeted by Orsala, a 4th or 5th generation swiss resident and owner of the hotel. She was pleasant, friendly and helpful. The staff rotated around between concerige and wait staff. But no matter where they were, they would always greet you with a smile and a good morning. The dinner experience was spectacular. I have the distinct impression they applied reserved seating to align u with people u could associate with. This may be problematic for some who wish to select their own seat, perhaps close to a window, but I enjoyed it. Ricardo was extremely helpful in offering good suggestions on activities to do. In addition the hotel can generate train ticks for trips to the shilthorn or Jangfrau so u dont have to deal with train stations. In addition if u have a Eurorail pass u get a 25% discount. Make sure to spend the extra money for a south side balcony view. Talk about the most beautiful scenery. Don't waist your time in Interlaken.. Head to Wengen. Its a little up there but worth it. Remember, when u get off the train in Wengen, its down the hill, not up :). my mistake.

Room Tip: Make sure to spend the money for a South-side balcony view. Also, Individual train tickets can get...

Let me start by saying this is a beautiful family owned and run hotel with wonderful service. We had a superior south facing room (including twin sinks in the bathroom!) with a beautiful view of the mountains and the valley below. We had two breakfasts and dinners here and they were all excellent and a great bargain. Unfortunately, my wife had come down with a very bad sore throat and cold in Luzern and by the time we arrived at the Alpenrose she felt lousy. After two nights here, we decided to cut our stay in Wengen three days short and head to Zurich earlier than we had planned. Because we had booked five nights, I expected to pay for the full five nights. However, the family was quite kind and understanding in offering a reduced price that both my wife and I thought was more than fair. We would not hesitate to stay at the Alpenrose on a future trip to Wengen.

We just returned from 7 nights at the Alpenrose Hotel, which was recommended to us by an English cousin of mine who has stayed there many times over a 15-year period and who accompanied us. My husband and I had a south-facing room with a balcony with a view of the snow-covered peaks of the Bernese Oberland. The hotel is picturesque, with comfortable, though not overly-large rooms and bathrooms that are well-thought out for a guest's comfort. The staff collects you at the train station (Wengen is not accessible by road) and whisks you to a personal welcome by the proprietress. We had the half-board plan, which included a plentiful breakfast buffet and a very good five-course dinner each night. The cog railway system makes it easy to explore the area, and the hotel is truly geared to take care of everything so that guests are free to hike, wander wildflower meadows, and ride trains to various peaks. The world and all its troubles is held at bay. A wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Definitely pay the extra and get a room on the south side of the hotel with a balcony.

My wife and I enjoyed our 5 night holiday stay (June 5 - 10, 2013) at this truly wonderful hotel.

It is situated in a marvellous mountain setting and only a seven minute walk from the Wengen train station.

A young lovely lady, Ursula, is now managing this hotel. She exudes the grace and hospitality of several past generations of her family who have nurtured this outstanding hotel.

Many of the guests whom we met at this hotel shared our views and indicated that they have been repeated guests over the years.

One cannot find a more beautiful setting for an unforgettable holiday.
