This place really grows on you. Sure, it was built in 1912, which amazingly was also the year the Jungfrau railroad was completed, so the interiors are a bit dated but it is wonderfully comfortable and clean.
The food and wine selection is quite varied, the service enthusiastic, the terrace views magnificent, the long bathtubs to soak in after a long day of hiking much appreciated.
Not to mention the cost being very reasonable for Switzerland.
Wengen is an ideal and central location to stay in this region which is in my humble opinion the most beautiful in all of Switzerland if not the world. Stay at least a week to sample the fantastic range of hikes available.
