Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Situated at the base of the Jungfrau Mountains in a small hamlet / town called Wengen ( few hours from Zurich and about 45 minutes from Interlaken ) - This hotel almost meets all needs and requirements of any tourist or traveler. Very courteous and friendly staff; Excellent location, Good Food, Comfortable rooms -- What else do we Need!!

A small want though which was not fulfilled (made me give a rating of 4 instead of 5) - We were asked to Vacate immediately at 10 AM during checkout - When I requested for a little time extension(With Payment & Without options offered and asked) - I was Bluntly Refused and asked to keep my luggage in the room next to the reception-- Expected a bit more Friendliness after being given Very good treatment till then --- Guess nothing is perfect :)

How to Reach : Go to Jungfrau by Train; Visit all tourist spots at the Top - Observation Desk, Ice Castle and the Lot

Room Tip: Take room with a View (Most of them do have). Take a room looking towards the Alps.

We stayed here for the first few days in June 2014 and our stay was very pleasant. Daniel and his wife were very accommodating and helped us plan our day trips, meals, etc. The breakfast included in the booking was excellent (healthy foods and lots of choices), and the 4 course dinner was delicious and an excellent value. We felt right at home during our entire stay and when back in Wengen, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Definitely recommend

We recently stayed in this hotel on our tour of Europe, based upon what we read from previous TripAdvisor reviews. Wengen itself is wonderful, well worth a stop in Switzerland. We got off the train and walked down the street to the hotel and were greeted by Daniel, our room was immediately ready. Daniel showed us around the hotel, gave us advice on sites to see, trails to hike etc. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The hotel offers a four course dinner that the chef prepares. It was absolutely delicious, and relatively cheap for Switzerland standards. Wengen is small and the hotel is a short walk from everything you would need to get to. Overall a wonderful place to stay, recommend without a doubt.

We stayed there in May 2014 for 2 nights. We arrived early and were given a room instantly. We stayed in R.No 303, which is the corner room with a balcony overlooking the Jungfrau range of mountains. Room was very clean and tidy. Four course dinner prepared by the hotel chef was excellent and it was one of the best meal we ever had, my wife being a vegetarian was given special veg salad, Yummy carrot soup , veg pasta n strawberry ice cream with fresh cream. Daniel was the perfect host, very friendly, helpful and took care of our every need. Hotel Edelweiss is the best place to stay in Wengen. Daniel has even build a small open lounge area besides the hotel esp for summer.

Room Tip: Room with balcony overlooking Jungfrau.

We stayed 4 nights at this lovely small-scale family run hotel in late June 2013.( I meant to write a review and now I have finally got round to it...This is a reflection on me not the hotel!) We had a great mountain view room - we woke up to look out at Jungfrau. We were visiting from NZ and went to Wengen, a car-free village overlooking the amazing Lauterbrunnen valley, as our base for a series of day walks. We made full use of the railway to access walks in the Lauterbrunnen Valley and from Murren, and the cable car to walk over to Mannlichen and back to Kleine Scheidegg, plus walks over on the Grindelwald side. We enjoyed lovely food (breakfasts and dinners) and Daniel and Susanne were great hosts, and the staff were excellent. Highly recommended and we wish we could have stayed longer, and we would happily return!

Room Tip: Try to get one with the mountain view

I stayed with my mother and sister for a couple of nights in May 2014. It was the best service we had during our two week trip around Austria and Switzerland. The rooms are simple but clean and warm. Dinners are also very good.
