Lots to do in this lttle town in the mountains and what a great place to stay. Clean, comfortable lounge area (inside and outside), nice rooms, great views, good food and a wonderful staff to help you. Short walk from the train station slightly uphill, but worth it. Someone was playing the piano most of the nights we were there. Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Hard to imagine a bad room in this hotel. May need to request private bathroom.

My wife and I have stayed in way too many hotels in way too many places, so our "expectations" are a bit high. This historic hotel has been in the same family since it was built around 1890 and you can tell. Most of the furnishings are actual antiques in both the lobby, restaurant, piano room and guest rooms. The location up in the mountain town of Wengen (pronounced Vengen) is one of the most scenic locations in Switzerland, which says alot! The town itself sits up on the foothills of a forested mountain only accessible by train or walking, so it is extremely peaceful. Another scenic train ride puts you at the base of the infamous Mt. Eiger, an absolute must see.
The staff of the hotel are all extremely helpful and you never get the impression that you are "imposing" on them when you ask a favor or information about tourist sites. And did I mention fresh flowers?!
I know I'm gushing on and on about this hotel, but it truly is beautiful, we are definitely coming back to Wengen soon and one of the reasons is the Falken Hotel.

Room Tip: A view of the valley is nice, but there is not a bad view available;)

We were with a group for a walking holiday,it is ideal for this as it is traffic-free and close to the railway station.
The staff were friendly and helpful, it is certainly better to pay for a front room to get a view of the mountains.
The meals provided were pleasant, but there was no choice.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a front room

I don't know what the rooms are like in the main hotel, but if you reserve a family room you will be in the second building which is very old and not updated. We had bare wires exposed in the ceiling lights, a very bad musty odor that had my wife very uncomfortable. the room was generally run down and falling apart. There were some cool antique pieces in the rooms and the two adjoining rooms were large, but they were obviously very neglected in this building. Panes of glass were missing in the balcony windows. We were offered 'welcome drinks' which consisted of small wine glasses filled with....wait for it...apple juice?? I spilled them all after carrying them to the second building and trying to pry open the old stuck door. I did get a nice silver set of coffee and tea before breakfast when I asked for coffee before the breakfast service started. So we enjoyed that sitting on the enormous balcony on our half broken chairs and peeling paint while enjoying the stunning views of Jungfrau. the main building lobby seemed much nicer, very classy and antique, so maybe the rooms in the main building are maintained better. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful with what seems the standard Wengen hotel fare: bread, cheese, meat, eggs you boil yourself, butter, jam, fruit, etc. Since we need a family room we would not book here again as the second building is really in bad shape. the photos online for this hotel must be really, really old.

Our family of five enjoyed staying at this hotel. Since you cannot drive to Wengen we parked at Lauterbrunnen and took the train over. Before we left we called the hotel at the station and they picked us up in a tiny little van which was very helpful with all of our luggage. Upon check in they gave us some apple cider and we relaxed in the salon. There is a piano there and my children were able to play some music. One of my favorite parts of the hotel was the elevator. It's an old style elevator where you shut the door and there is a little seat in it. It was just so "ol timey" and fun! The hotel is full of old charm with antique furnishings that makes it warm and inviting. Our children had the better room, a triple facing the town with jaw dropping views! So comfy with a great big bath and a table. Our double was small but adequate and the view of the mountains not as amazing as the kids but very pretty. Our bathroom, however, was super tiny! Our sink was actually outside in our room. Not sure how my husband fit in that shower! We had a good laugh and made the best of it. There is a public bath down the hall if you needed more room. Another humorous thing was the very old keys. I thought they were so cool at first but boy did we have a hard time opening the doors! We chose to laugh about it, however, and appreciate the quirks of a very old hotel. The breakfast was adequate. They had a machine to make soft boiled eggs. My only complaint is that the staff at breakfast could have been friendlier and more welcoming. We didn't explore Wengen itself too much but there is a market close by and a wonderful bakery. We spent most of our time in Lauterbrunnen and Murren. The entire area is unbelievably gorgeous! Even with the mountains shrouded in clouds we were still in awe of the natural beauty. If your are heading south to Lake Como, Italy and want an incredible scenic drive, go out of Interlacken on highway 8 to highway 11 heading towards Innerkirchen and ultimately Lake Lugano. It was the most incredible drive we have ever taken winding us up the mountains, through forests and villages and up close to the snowy alps! We actually got to play in the snow in July!
