“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I cannot say enough about how incredible the Alpenrose is. Starting with the owners and continuing throughout the entire staff, these are the most sincerely nice folks that I have ever had the pleasure to stay with. Very professional and outgoing in their desire to make your stay memorable. The entire property is beautiful, clean as a whistle. Food and wait staff are exceptional. We cannot wait to return to Wengen and without question, the Alpenrose.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Lauterbrunen valley!

I just wanted to warn people who do there booking from USA, as when I booked my tickets from priceline they booked me for Alpenrose in Saxeton. So here is my story... When I arrived at Zurich, we didn't receive one of our bags, so I had to report it and give hotel names so they can send luggage to our hotels. I call Alpenrose to let them know that our bags will be arriving in Wengen and we won't be there until tomorrow as we were spending 1 night in Lucerne. They were kind enough to let us no that we didn't have any booking with them and check our paperwork. Overall, I can't thank Alpenrose for their kindness and thank you for holding my bag. Please book directly with hotels that you are interested, you can always cancel your booking 24 hours prior to your stay without any cost.

We stayed seven nights and enjoyed this hotel greatly. We had a superiour room with wonderful views. it is enough outside the centre to be quiet, without being too long a walk. The uphill start to each day helped us get the muscles working. The family atmosphere was alive and well with all that entails. The half board option was very good value for money, with only a couple of meals over the week raising smiles as to the rather quirky combinations. The buffet supper was stunning. Given the rather ridiculous cost of food in Switzerland the rates for supper were well worth the occasional 'miss'. Good wifi and bathroom. There is an older feel to it at times, mainly due to the older couples, some of whom have been going for years, but some younger people arrived later in the week and lifted the atmosphere, as did some of the younger Muslim guests - good to have the mix. Ursula as the latest generation owner has that difficult balance to manage between not alienating the older regular clients whilst welcoming the new. We felt her welcome and were sad to leave, albeit to travel and explore another part of Switzerland. If we returned, we would return to Hotel Alpenrose.

This hotel is fabulous and very romantic! The place is stunning and very cozy! The staff is extremely helpful and polite. The owners welcome us personally and they are very friendly. The rooms are perfect and very well decorated. The food is fantastic, really special! I highly recommend this hotel! It is a piece of paradise in Swiss Alps!

Just stayed at this family run hotel (over 100 years)...beautiful rooms (we were in the Chalet Rossi) with amazing views and incredible service! We were traveling with our 19 year old son who stayed in a smaller room ...can't say enough good things about the staff! Experience was excellent from the booking til when we left...everyone is assigned a table...we were moved closer to the windows after the first night ..and we felt the staff took the time to learn our likes and cater to them...a gracious place to stay in a charming village...and so many hikes...would definitely recommend and would stay there again!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a view!!!

We were newcomers to this hotel, and to Switzerland itself, and got a great room on the higher floor with amazing views across the valley. Had we been facing the other side the views up to the top of Männlichen are also stunning so don't let the room location put you off.. enough said about that.

The hotel itself is very special indeed. Spotlessly clean in all areas, very comfortable rooms and lovely public living room areas downstairs. Decor hints at Swiss lodge style but is nicely understated and modern. The 5 course meal every night was fab, and actually great value compared to restaurants in the area. From the first hearty handshake to the last farewell the family and staff were outstanding - way beyond the call of duty. One small example: As we checked out in the morning, we heard that a tree had fallen on the tracks over night and no trains were running from Wengen, and not likely to for several hours. The hotel owner insisted on travelling with us and our luggage in the van to help us find a way out. She put us on the cable car over Männlichen to Grindelwald and assured us she'd arrange a taxi there to whisk us by road to Interlaken to pick up our connection. The driver had been well briefed as he then treated us to a white-knuckle ride by road to Interlaken. A journey normally 80-90 minutes (by cable car and road) was done in 55!! Swiss efficiency at its best.

Wow'd by Switzerland, loved this hotel. Will definitely return..

We were here for the first time but most of their guests have been there for many years and they get priority for the better rooms and better seats in the dining room.
The rooms are charming but be sure you only take the rooms with a view as otherwise they will be very dark. As a first timer even though the best rooms are on the top floors you will probably get a room on a lower floor. The dinner that is included is very good but not gourmet.
There is a beautiful place to sit outside on lounge chairs and look at the mountains

Room Tip: You want a room with a view on a higher floor but the best rooms go to repeat customers.
