Reviewed July 1, 2011

My partner and I stayed 4 nights at the Schonegg Hotel in June 2011. The hosts, Rene and Sina, were friendly and always available to provide assistance or advice. Our room was large with a private bath and it had a spectacular view of the Jungfrau and surrounding peaks towering over the village of Wengen. The accommodations were clean and comfortable -- if not just a bit outdated. The room was very quiet at night, but during the day, the noise from pedestrians and the many commercial/hotel vehicles in the streets right below our room made it difficult to rest and relax in our room during the day. We thought Wengen was vehicle-free -- but in reality it is just car-free. Although we had a non-smoking room, we smelled cigarette smoke from somwhere nearby on several occasions. The Schonegg's restaurant serves traditional Swiss/International fare for dinner which was of very good quality. We were surprised that they served a fixed menu both nights we dined at the restaurant, but perhaps we just had not done enough research to know this in advance. Table service was efficient and brisk. The very nice breakfast buffet included the typical European breakfast fare (cereals, breads, croissants, meats, cheeses) and was more than ample. Overall, we were happy with the accommodations, and the service was very good.

We didn't stay at the hotel, we have been there just for dinner and enjoyed it very much. The waitress was very nice,the food was excellent!! It started with a delicous 'amuse bouche', then a great fresh salat,very yummy meat dishes and it finished with a good dessert. The only 'negative' point was the rather long wait.

We have recently returned from our regular visit to the Schonegg. As always, we were looked after beautifully by Rene and Sina and the food gets better and better. You will not be disappointed.

We spent 3 days at Hotel Schoenegg with our daughter (8 years) and absolutely loved it. The whole staff was caring, so welcoming, friendly and helpful. And the food was excellent. We especially appreciated the care that was taken to the children.
Our room, which was very comfortable and clean, had a little balcony, from where you could admire the Jungfrau. The Hotel Schoenegg is a great place to explore beautiful Wengen and surroundings.

I agree with all of the other 5 star reviews. This place provides excellent, but not overbearing hospitality. Also a good deal with breakfast and dinner. A minor disappointment was the only language overheard in the dining room was loud American English from groups of other American who like this hotel.

A pleasant, clean, cost effective place to stay in the Jungfrau Region.

If you are looking for fine yet traditional accomodations and dining in one of the car-free villages of the Bernese Oberland it doesn't come any better than the Schonegg. Set in the center of Wengen with wonderful views, the hotel is graciously appointed in traditional Swiss style. Thankfully the proprietors have avoided the recent fad of "modernizing" their facilities in the sterile techno-pop style that others have unfortunately embraced. While offering top-notch modern amenities, the Schonegg retains the lovely old-world feel of a real Swiss Alps hotel.

The service is excellent and the staff is well-trained. Herr Berthod sets the mood with a reserved yet gracious welcome and also sets high standards for the rest of his team. Everyone we encountered was focused, accomodating, and welcoming. One example of the training: our waitress (maybe early 20s?) decanted our wine without us even needing to ask, and did so perfectly. Impressive.

The rooms are good-sized for a Swiss hotel in this price range. Ask for a south facing room with a veranda to maximize your enjoyment of the views.

The Schonegg's kitchen is the best in town, IMO. And there are a number of great restaurants in Wengen so "best" is a tough rating to score. The chef grows his own herbs in the garden of a home just down the street from the hotel. That tells you something. Even if you don't decide to stay at the Schonegg, you simply must eat at the restaurant at least once.

We had a wonderful 6 nights in Wengen. The Hotel Schonegg was perfect. We had a decent sized room with a view from our balcony that was incredible. The hotel was very clean as is just about everything in Switzerland. The host was helpful and gracious. Then of course there was the food which was outstanding. Hotel Schonegg is a perfect hotel in a perfect location.
