We were so pleased with our stay here. We'd met a couple in the train station on our way up who were staying at the same place and they didn't seem all that excited about it so we weren't sure what we were getting into. I don't know what they were complaining about. Yes, it's old, but in wonderful condition and very clean. We loved the views out our balconey. Doesn't get much better than this. Furnishings were old, but well kept. We happened to be there during the 100 year anniversary in June so had a really wonderful buffet style dinner. The breakfasts offered a wide variety of food. It was such a quiet, quaint place. We loved the sunroom type area to lounge. Nothing in Switzerland is a bargain but this was worth the money and we enjoyed our 3 nights here. Hotel staff was outstanding and friendly.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the valley. Also, be sure to time your trip to arrive earlier than the last...

We spent a week at this hotel in August and loved the atmosphere.
The food was good, the staff polite and friendly, and Natasha and her dog charming.
The bedroom with views of the mountains was very spacious and the bed exceptionally comfortable.

We look forward to returning here in the future.

Room Tip: Choose a south facing room for stunning views

While looking for a hotel in Berner Oberland area, we stumbled into Hotel Belvedere and booked the hotel purely based upon online reviews. We are so glad that we decided to stay in Wengen and picked this hotel! Wengen is simply an amazing place. Far above the "touristy" bustle of Interlaken area, this town has real swiss charm and some amazing views of the Lauterbrunnen valley. Jogging in the evening on the trails connecting Wengernalp was a pure delight. Hotel Belvedere has great views of the mountains and the valley from the rooms (don't forget to request a south facing room to get great views of the valley). We requested family accommodations for 4 and we were given a family suite that was large and very comfortable. Breakfast area is large and offers great views of the mountains. Staff was helpful and made sure we had a pleasant and comfortable stay. We will most definitely visit this area again during the ski season and very likely stay again at Belvedere. Plan to rent a bike and/or trek to take advantage of all the trails this area has to offer.

Room Tip: As already indicated, request south facing rooms to get a good view of the valley.

Location is approximately 7 min by walk from Wengen station.

Buffet dinner is good and cheap ($25 per person)

Must book for the room with Jungfrau view. Is amazing!

With small library and piano in one of the facility room.

Tips: If you are traveling with a lot of luggage, you can call the hotel from Wengen Station. That is the free phone to call there. Press "21", they will send the cart to pick you and your luggage up. Just need to wait for a couple of minutes.

We stayed at the Hotel Belvedere for 1 week during August 2012 in a first floor room with a balcony. The hotel rooms are basic, but clean and offer all you need for a good nights sleep. The buffet breakfast was ample, well presented and tasty although at times the hot food would run out. Evening meals were again a buffet style, the food was not fine restaurant standard but was always plentiful, tasty and appropriate to the value of the hotel.

The front desk and other staff were always helpful. friendly and ready to help.The hotel has fantastic views of the mountains from its location in Wengen.

If you are after modern rooms and fine dinning then the Hotel Belvedere Wengen is not for you, but if value for money, some historic features and fantastic views are what you are after then this hotel is highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony

This Hotel is 100 years old in 2012 and I loved the way in which the basic layout of the building has not been changed or tampered with and it still has an atmosphere of solidity and purpose.

Some of the other reviewers have questioned the food - it is served in a buffet style and has the advantage that you will never be short of a choice and will always be able to go back for more. We found it excellent and I will not forget the outstanding Beef Wellington (they translated it as 'cattle in pastry') produced on Swiss National Day.

The hotel is very spacious, the staff very smartly turned out and from all corners of Europe and the rooms have a TV (but not very good for English speaking channels). Mobeil phone reception very good, internet available but the charge would discourage you. The staff also like animals, although I don't think they are accepted as guests.

On my birthday the chef produced a cake and made me feel very important, especially as the rest of the family had forgotten.

Excellent Swiss hotel untainted by modern gimmickry.

Stayed here for the 4th time this summer. The team remembered our preferences and delivered excellent service once more. The rooms are very dated but just rightly balanced with the atmosphere of the hotel. The daily buffet offers a variety of choices so the kids too enjoyed the meals.
The hidden gem of the hotel is the wine list featuring hundreds of wine including top Bordeaux wines life Lafite and Petrus!!
