My husband and I spent four days at the hotel Caprice last week on our trip through Europe. Although it sounded a drag having to park at Lauterbrunnen and catch the train to Wengen to get to the hotel it was in fact very easy and a pretty journey on the little train in its own right. If you are staying longer and have a lot of luggage firstly there are luggage carts right by the car park after you have parked your car so you can get it to the trains, secondly if you tell the hotel what time train you are getting on they will send a porter to help you which I presume will be chargeable as is not a hotel service. From the station at Wengen it is literally three minutes' walk to the hotel which is at the side of the track, follow the train track and you find the hotel. The trains are not really a bother at all when you are in the hotel.
We thought that the Caprice had the best position for a hotel in the whole of Wengen. The view from the back of the hotel is superb so do ask for an Eiger view - it will make your stay. On reading reviews I am surprised people rave about the view over the valley, yes it is really superb, but they never seem to mention the surrounding mountains. Waking up in the morning looking out at the clouds drifting across the valley and over the Eiger is very special and, as you are so close at the Caprice, we don't think you could better it. The room was a good size, there is a comfortable sitting room downstairs with a fire for winter, the staff are helpful especially the two young ladies in the restaurant, but what sets this hotel apart is the restaurant. We ate dinner each night in the hotel, four meals and they were all different and all excellent. Don't bother going elsewhere, good food, good service and boy 'what a view'!
