For a skiing trip in the jungfrau region we have choosen this 4 star hotel. A very nice place to stay in a 5 minute walk from the train station and skiing lift. Staff was very helpfull and friendly, Hotel dinner was excellent also a daily vegitarian dish was available as main course and a salad bar. Breakfast buffet was great.
Our room was on the first floor and the size of it was perfect; there was enough room for a baby cot and sitting area. We travelled with a 2 year old.
Bring your own cutlery for the youngsters, silver tableware is only available in the dining room

We stayed here for a week in July 2012, and chose this hotel primarily for its position and wonderful views of the Lauterbrunen valley, which we enjoyed from our third floor balcony. The supplement for a larger, valley view room was quite high, but we felt it was worth it to be able to enjoy what must be one of the most beautiful views in Switzerland. The hotel manager is very "hands on" and takes a personal interest and obvious pride in all aspects of the running the establishment. The manager was for example always keeping an eye on things in the restaurant, and his close attention showed in the high level of service we experienced. Every member of staff we met was cheerful and helpful. Wine in the restaurant was reasonably priced we thought. Food was good and plentiful. The clientele were primarily British, many of whom seemed to have been returning here repeatedly for many years. Wengen itself is a lovely, peaceful village with no motor traffic, only electric vehicles (ring the hotel from the station to be picked up by their own little electric cart (an experience in itself!) or to have your luggage collected, to save pulling cases up the hill). This absence of cars and coaches makes Wengen a more pleasant place to stroll around than Grindelwald, but has a less remote feeling than Murren. There are two churches - wonderful view of the valley from near the Catholic church, and the English church was open for visitors when we passed by on a Friday morning. There are a selection of shops and cafes in the main street. The Swiss Made Shop and the Silberhorn Jewellers were our favourites, both of which had an interesting selection of items for sale and friendly staff. We will return, hopefully before too long!

Room Tip: Pay the supplement to get a valley view room.

This is probably the finest in Wengen! A super beautiful hotel with a traditional European charm to it. Very cozy nice rooms, sitting areas and a fabulous restaurant. The best part about the staff is that they are non-interfering but are 'at your service' when you need them. We couldn't have found a better place than this!

Room Tip: Mountain facing rooms are the best and have balconies!

When I made the booking, I didn't realize that to reach the hotel one must take the cog-wheeled train for a 15 minute ride up the mountain. But once I was there, it was well worth the slight inconvenience. The view is spectacular.

The hotel was typically Swiss, which is a compliment. The staff and facilities were excellent. My room had a balcony that afforded a 180 degree view of the mountains. For dinner I had a three course meal with three choices of dishes. Nicely prepared and served, typical fare of the region.

The only downside of the location was that the afternoon sun beat into the room and with no air-con it was possible to cool the room only by leaving the balcony door open. Which would normally be okay but as a light sleeper, even low noises from other rooms or people walking by bother my sleep. The 'average' person would probably not be affected.

Room Tip: On the side overlooking the town and at the higher levels.

We booked three rooms in Wengener Hof for a weekend hiking trip with my family and had a wonderful stay. My husband and I visited Wengen & Mürren many times and this was the first time we stayed at the Wengener Hof. Normally, we preferred more rustic type of lodging in the mountain but we were pleasantly surprised by this experience with Wengener Hof.

The hotel was located near the beginning part of the town if you hike up from Lauterbrunnen, only a few minutes walk from the train station but it felt like miles away. South facing rooms with balcony have splendid view - you have to see it to believe how beautiful it is. What made our experience exceptional was actually the staff and their service. They were so friendly, before we even checked-in we were greeted with friendly smile and handshakes. The staff took the time to walk us to our rooms, explained everything in the room and service available.

On the last day of our stay (after we checked-out), we went for a final day hike and when we returned from Kleine Scheidegg by train, the hotel staff brought our luggages to the train station so that that we could stay on the same train down to Lauterbrunnen (otherwise we would have to wait for another half an hour for the next train). Now this was world class service.

Room Tip: Room with balcony facing Jungfrau and Lauterbrunnen Valley

We originally booked at Interlaken, but changed to here after reading reviews. So glad we did! If you enjoy spending time outdoors this location is amazing, and beautiful. The hotel was older but elegant, and kept in excellent condition. Beds and food were great, and very friendly service.
