“Magnificent views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

A bit of a walk from the center of Wengen, this hotel is so Swiss, with just magnificent views of the surrounding valley and mountains. Breathtakingly beautiful. Our room was quite ample, with the deepest, coziest bedding, and of course a wrapped chocolate on the pillow. Typically Swiss service and hospitality. Just a very pleasant experience all around. We were there in early August, to watch the Switzerland Independence Day parade, watching costumed bands.

Far from train station, but they provide pick up and drop off at the start and end of your stay here. The room is very clean and balcony for south facing room gives excellent view!! yes, the best in wengen I believe. Hotels nearer the station is lower-hill and therefore doesnt offer views like this.. Breakfast is always good - quiet and cosy.. Bed was comfortable too. Madam Marion was helpful whenever we needed advice, otherwise we had alot of privacy here as there was no crowd. It did seem really quiet once it gets dark.

Room Tip: south facing room is a must if you are staying here.

Perfectly fine for a short stay, walking distance from the town center, but get them to pick you up if you have luggage. The place is super clean, but the room was tiny. Like ridiculously tiny. If you have a lot of gear for a ski vacation, this is not the place to go. The staff is not particularly charming, but not unfriendly either. The hotel hasn't really been updated since the 70s. Which is kinda cool, if you want to take period photographs with instagram, but overall feels a little bit depressing. But, we stayed here after x-mas for a couple of nights, in the middle of high season and for a short stay in the mountains it does the job just fine. And Wengen is one of the nicest little villages in the Alps.

My daughter and I stayed in Hotel Alpenruhe for five days during the past April on our holiday in Switzerland.
To summarize our stay there in a nut shell- it was fantastic !
Frauline Marion Provost and her personnel were extremely kind and helpful at all times.
The room ( with south facing views and balcony ) was everything we needed- CLEAN and comfortable ! The view over the Mannlichen and Jungfrau was absolutely spectacular !
The breakfast was something to look forward to every morning.
Hotel Alpenruhe Kulm is also open during all seasons.
Wengen and the Swiss Alps ?
Awesome !
We would love to return one day !

Room Tip: South facing rooms with balcony. Have not seen a swimming pool...but hey, who needs a pool in the S...

Hotel is a quite bit of a hilly walk to the station. Owner is friendly but do not really speak english. She was nice enough to upgrade us to a room with awesome view. Hotel is very cozy and the balcony has stunning views of the alps. Breakfast is basic. However, one thing we can't verify through an incident when we were out for breakfast, do not lock our luggage and when we are back the staffs are cleaning our room. Let us doubt the honesty of the chamber maids as we have lost something that day.

A tired and dated hotel with a cold and unfriendly atmosphere. The owner has clearly no interest in customers and this is reflected in the staff who never smiled or passed the time of day with the guests. In its hay day back in the 70's it may have been a place to stay. Unfortunately it is still stuck there! It is also located up a relatively steep road at the end of the town. My advice: keep looking

I have stayed here 3 times and this is the first review...in part because they are very consistant in their service and delivery so I thought it was time to give them a review.
I rang 3 times to say change my estimated time of arrival was changing - during the evening I was due! This was because my car had problems. I finally arrived at 0130hr and they were there to welcome me and take me direct to the room without fuss.
I had a single room this time (33) and had a great balcony and view over Wengen and the valley. The room was simple, very clean and in excellent condition.
Despite the perhaps dated furniture etc, everthing was in great condition - no rips, marks, scratches etc as you might expect from a similar hotel.
The bathroom was spotless and not a hint of mould to be seen - unlike many a 4 and 5 star hotel I have stayed in!
The Breakfast is very good in terms of variety and quantity.
I would recommend the hotel and very likely to stay here again

Room Tip: get a balcony room!
