“Wonderful!!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

As we got off the train we could see the hotel on the right hand side just up from the station. On our way up we were met by a herd of cows coming down the road. They all had the traditional bells around their necks and flowers on their heads, this was the day that they were brought down from the mountains.
The man on reception was very helpful as were all the staff, our room was large and airy with two opening windows and a door to the balcony. The views were spectacular!!!
Although there wasn't any air conditioning we were able to sleep with the windows open and drifted off to sleep to the sound of cows bells.
Breakfast was good, traditional swiss with bread, fruit, cheeses and yogurt. Cooked was available. Wii fi was free but we couldn;t get it in our room so had to sit in the lounge
Overall a great experience , just wished we could have stayed longer than 2 nights.

Hands down, this hotel has the most breathtaking views we have ever experienced from a hotel balcony. The rooms were charming, pretty typical of an older resort ski town hotel, could use a little updating, but honestly it really didn't matter because the views were so outstanding. The hotel staff members were all very friendly, and Carlos went above and beyond. The reasturant is amazing for dinner and the breakfasts are quiet and adequate. Grab a drink or two on the terrace before dinner, the views are the same as you experience from the rooms. The hotel is a two minute walk to the train station. Hoping to return someday!

Came in September on a birthday trip for my sister. After reading several travel forums and TripA, and booking pretty close to our travel time, chose the Caprice.

I cannot imagine having made a better choice. The views are spectacular! The staff is outstanding! The location, so easy!

Aragon (sp?) and Carlos are so great. I have a gluten allergy and any cross contamination can make me very sick. They made sure that I got gluten-free biscuits with breakfast each morning. We were able to make dinner one night that was so delicious and again, the views make it hard to leave your balcony or the main terrace. With only a week in Europe, we almost extended our stay here to give up other sights.

I travel frequently for business and pleasure, work in hospitality and would recommend to anyone coming to Wengen or the Jungfrau region.

In terms of European travel experiences, the rooms are large, beautiful and the bathroom quite large. We could not have been more pleased.

I will definitely return - truly a magical trip. Thank you!

The most valuable part of every room at this hotel is the balcony -- I could sit there for hours and look at the magnificent view of the cliff-face mountains and the valley below. There's a cozy bar/living room on the ground floor, too, though it's the only part of the hotel with wi-fi.

Have stayed here multiple times. From the postcard view to the friendly service, I would reccomend this hotel to the most discerning traveler. I have visited in summer and winter - I can't decide what I like best. The breakfast is wonderful, the dinners are great, and there is so much to do. The hotel is located right in town and right next to the train stop. The staff always has wonderful recommendations and was very welcoming. The rooms are clean, well appointed, and the beds are so comfy! Can't wait until my next stay here!

Waking up to the views from this hotel is something truly special. The views are matched only by how kind and helpful the staff are - especially Carlos, who truly goes above and beyond to make guests feel comfortable and welcome.
