A quiet hotel with bags of old world charm just a few minutes walk from the main street. This Hotel is great for couples who want to have a nice meal and then retire to the lounge to finish the wine and have a quiet conversion or read a good book.
The food is very good for a 3 star hotel with a good breakfast buffet and three choices of main course (one vegetarian) in the evening. The restaurant is open at good time and Grant the Scottish restaurant manager and his staff are very helpful and polite. Evening meals can also be taken at the Hotel Silberhorn.
The bedrooms are basic but of a good size and clean and tidy. Pay the extra for a south facing room with a balcony the views are absolutely stunning.

Stayed during August for a summer break and fell in love with the town and the hotel. Built around the turn of the century, the Belvedere has a certain faded charm, like a rich old aunt who no longer attends the poshest dances of her past.
The location really suited us because it is very close to the high street but sufficiently removed to avoid the night time revelling. The hotel has great views to the east (toward Jungfrau) and South across the Lauterbrunnen valley toward Murren, etc. Our room was not large at all and was pretty basic in its facilities but the balcony was a great place to see the sun setting on Jungfrau.
The food will not win any awards but it is fine (with two main choices each night) and plentiful. The breakfast buffet is great and they will make you a picnic for each day if you ask.
We found the staff very helpful (I totally disagree with the person who mentioned the rude restaurant manager) and they really looked after us. There was usually coffee and cakes waiting in the bar when we returned each day.
A little bird tells me that it is also the official residence for the Swiss ski team during race week - and they wouldn't put up with crap, would they?

We have just returned from a beautiful sunny week in Wengen, staying at the Belvedere hotel which turned out to be just as friendly and charming as formerly reviewed by "wonderful views". The food was great for a halfboard menu and we have never, and most probably never will, have a more magnificient bathroom balcony view overlooking the Jungfrau!

The south facing views from the hotel have amazing moutain views and the rooms are clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful - except for the restaurant manager who was totally rude and arrogant. The evening meals in the restaurant are also a poor standard. For the price the hotel isn't bad although there are probably better alternatives in the area.

Great hotel with incredible views! Nice, clean rooms and a good bar to savor a good cognac after a day of beautiful wandering high in the Alps!

We are a family of four (children aged 13 and 10) and we have been to the Belvedere for 2 years running, when on skiing holidays. It is a warm, friendly and very relaxed hotel, devoid of a lot of the snobbery that pervades many other hotels in Wengen. Views are excellent, and though it is on the outskirts of the village, everywhere in Wengen can be reached within a few hundred metres. The staff go out of their way to be friendly to everybody. The food is wholesome and plentiful. I would give it 5 stars but for the one fault - there is a banging in the central heating system pipes when the system comes on before dawn. So take some ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. Have a good holiday.
