Reviewed January 8, 2014

This is a fantastic hotel. It is quirky and old-fashioned but marvellous. I think the set evening meal is the best food I've had skiing, at least compared to other set evening meals. The food is fresh and well cooked. There is a slightly 1970s feel - duck/orange - but none the worse for that. The food/ambience is reminiscent of the Royal Oak at Rosthwaite in way or that's the nearest English comparison that springs to mind. We liked the bar and the piano room.Great location for skiing. Great atmosphere over New Year.

The Falken without doubt is a unique hotel; as soon as we stepped through the door we felt at home. We had the most perfect week, the food was excellent, New Year's dinner was outstanding. The rooms are light and airy and clean. We could not recommend it more highly.
The only very small issue was a little noise in one of our bedrooms on some nights, but this was understandable being on the first floor.

Stayed in this old establishment a number of times during our ski trips to Wengen over the years, although most things seem to stay the same, charming as ever, however the food seemed to got saltier and saltier. Ski back straight to the ski rooms was great and the view of the village was magnificent.

Room Tip: Rooms on second floor facing the mountain have big terrace to walk out to and cool the beer! Village...

First we didn't have the room for which we had made a reservation, so we had a small, dark and loud "superior" room on the south side - which I would say is not the best side. Then, we unexpectedly had to pay more than listed on the email confirmation. The tenant argued unequably and let us feel stupid. Anyway, the price is much too high, the food is poor (mostly outsourced or out of the can), the service is not very nice (we had to insist to get some simple and necessary information). Last but not least, if you stay in Wengen more than 2-3 days and do not like to play parlor games every night, you'd rather choose another place to stay!

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the higher floors if you want to rest a bit in the morning... Corner rooms are...

Stayed here in August 2013 and had a great holiday. The Falken is a lovely old Victorian hotel which is full of character and is just a couple of hundred metres from the centre of Wengen.
We received a warm welcome from Kristina, who does a great job and seems to run the hotel. Our room was a good size, clean and nicely decorated. The hotel has a large lounge area next to reception - most evenings guests are entertained by Dimitar who plays the grand piano.
Meals in the restaurant were nice and we were well looked after all week by Sarah and Hannah.
Would thoroughly recommend.

We stayed two nights at Hotel Falken in October. It was lovely. They only had a few guests so gave us a larger room with a view of the mountains. We were welcomed warmly by the owner and her friends. The room was clean and large. Breakfast was wonderful and included in the price of the room. The owner and her friends gave us a number of tips on seeing the sights in the area.

Room Tip: I understand that some rooms can be very small. We happened to be in a larger room meant for 3 peop...
