We stayed at Hotel Falken for a week in September booked through Inghams via Last minute.com. We did not have one of the more expensive rooms overlooking the mountains but our view was beautiful none the less! On arrival we were greeted with a welcome drink and the walk uphill from the train station only took five minutes. There is a buffet dinner once a week with alot of choice. We had the half board option which also included a free packed lunch each day. The breakfast was lovely, three different types of bread which included my favourite walnut bread. Scrambled and boiled eggs, ham, salami,cheese, jams, marmalade, honey, fruit salad, muesli, cereals and yoghurts. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and fruit juices. Packed lunch was a cheese and ham bagguette, chocolate bar and fruit. There was a four course dinner every night, no choice given but they provided an alternative for me once because I don't eat fish. There was always a salad, soup, meat main course and desert. The food was excellent and I am very fussy. Some examples were lamb with bearnaise sauce, rosemary potatoes and green beans, fruits of the forest sponge with cream. There is good information at the hotel on the area, maps, timetables etc. Rooms were very clean and comfortable, no kettle or hairdryer so bring your own and european plug adaptors do not work here, you will need to purchase a special swiss three pronged one from the local shop. The bathroom was very nice with a large corner bath and shower. I think all rooms have balconies. Internet use here is very cheap 2 swiss fancs for half an hour. There are no tvs in the rooms but there is a tv lounge downstairs. The only thing we paid extra for were our drinks which are about the same price as the UK. There is a very nice cat and dog at the hotel. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly. There are shops nearby where you can purchase most things. It is in a very good location for visiting the rest of the area. The public transport is extremely efficient and easy to use. We purchased a Jungfrau six day pass which covered all travel in the area, trains, buses and cable cars. Do not miss out on a visit to the top of Europe Jungfraujoch mountain which cost 53 francs each to get there. On it there are husky rides, toboggan rides, zip wire, ice sculptures, beginners ski run and the most spectacular scenary. There are many activites in the area including horse treks, sea kayaking, paragliding, helicopter trips, rafting, lake cruises and much more. The weather was changeable but had no effect on our enjoyment of this stunning region. It is no wonder lots of people return to this hotel and Wengen.
