“A piece of heaven on earth...”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

It was one of the best places I've stayed in. Daniel and Susanne are able to run this cosy family hotel with no effort. They were so helpful to give suggestions and knows the area very well. The hotel has a peaceful feel to it and is child friendly. The food was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone coming to the Alps. Cheese fondue...the best. Recommended wine...impressive! The views...brilliant! For hiking in the summer...I am coming back here again. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. The hotel's Hiking sticks were helpful as we had sore knees. Thank you Daniel for helping us to choose the best option for hiking and activities for the time we had there taking the weather in consideration. GREAT PLACE OveRALL!

Just spent 3 days at the Hotel Edelweiss. Absolutely breathtaking views of the Jungfrau and the Lauterbrunnen Valley. The staff was wonderful, friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Although it was not on the fixed menu, they prepared an excellent cheese fondue meal for our family. The hotel has a nice game room, reading room and is close to the train station and to the cable car up to Mannlichen. The breakfast is a very extensive buffet with assorted meats and cheeses, cereals/muesli, breads, juices, hot chocolate/Ovaltine and coffee. The rooms are a nice size with a nice balcony to relax in comfortable chairs/table - very clean and best of all, quiet...we especially liked the ability to leave the balcony door open for fresh air at night while closing the shutters for privacy and security!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view on the Jungfrau side of the hotel.

We stayed for six nights at this cosy hotel, situated a short walk downhill from the railway station. We were much fitter by the end of our stay, walking up the slope after eating far too much at the delicious breakfast buffet! Daniel and all the staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was simple, clean and comfortable. We had a gorgeous view of the Jungfrau from our balcony... when the clouds lifted! Sadly not even Daniel could change the weather for us, but recommended a visit to nearby waterfalls which were magnificent. All in all, great value for money, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a Jungfrau view.

We were very happy with our stay at the Hotel Edelweiss. Room was comfortable and clean, with a nice patio and views of the Jungfrau. (Sure, you can get a valley view, but the side views are amazing too...no bad views in The Alps). Breakfast daily was good, dinner was great (we ate there 1 of our 3 night in Wengen). The staff was very helpful and kind -- gave great restaurant recommendations and helped with hiking maps. Wengen is a great home base for hiking in the Jungfrau Region and the hotel was very close to the train station, grocery store and Mannlichen. Highly recommend Wengen and the Hotel Edelweiss. Can't wait to go back!

This is a lovely small hotel a short walk from the train station. The rooms are comfortable, with great views of the mountains, and the grounds are lovely. Staff were very helpful and suggested a dinner next door at the excellent Hotel Baeran (as the Edelweiss restaurant was closed the night we stayed there). Recommended.

My sister and I really enjoyed staying in Wengen and loved Hotel Edelweiss, we are very happy we chose it. The hotel is in a good location just a short walk down the hill from the train station. It is very peaceful and beautiful with a nice outdoor seating area, cute garden and amazing views of the mountains. Breakfast in the morning was good with a variety of meats, cheeses, breads, muesli and hardboiled eggs. We had dinner at the hotel one night which was great and inexpensive compared to the rest of Switzerland. From here we did some great hiking and the staff was really great when we needed help planning our routes. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the view of the Jungfrau, so beautiful!

This is an exceptionally well run gem of a hotel in Wengen. Our family had a wonderful room, food was outstanding, staff went out of their way to insure a great stay, from excursion advice to simple courtesies. It was like staying at your best friends home!

Room Tip: We had a room for four but it is the only one in the hotel. My advice is to contact them via e-mail...
