This is a wonderful place to stay. It's nice and quiet because it's away from the train station and the centre of town, but a short walk from everywhere. There are nice little walks around the hotel and the charming town of Wengen, which has become my absolute place among all the places I've visited. We spent 5 nights out of our 3-week European hotel in Wengen and it was the highlight of our trip.
We'd booked a mountain view room but were upgraded to a Jungfrau view, and it was spectacular. The room had a balcony and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony enjoying the view. The room and bathroom were both spacious and comfortable. There was a big bottle of sparkling water and a bar of Lindt chocolate waiting for us upon check-in. That was a nice touch. The furnishing in the room could have been better. For that price, it shouldn't feel like a 3.5 star ski chalet. But it was clean. There was only one plug in the room that could be used so it was a challenge getting all our appliances charged each day.
Room rates come with half board. Breakfast was buffet style and there was a wide variety of food. Not the best I've had, but very, very decent and more than sufficient. Dinner was a five-course affair. The service was excellent but if you have plans to go out for a walk before the sun sets, let the waiter know beforehand. They're very proper with their table service, one course at a time with the requisite waiting time between courses. And because the hotel was rather full at the time, it being summer and all, dinner was a time-consuming affair. On most nights, it was appetizer, soup, salad buffet, main, dessert. On one night, they did an appetizer buffet (that was fantastic), on another, they did a main buffet and yet another, a dessert buffet. The food was better on some nights than others. One thing I would have liked is if coffee was included at dinner. I find it strange that it wasn't. Also, there was no kettle in the room. This was the case in a 5-star hotel we stayed in in Montreux. Perhaps it's a Swiss thing.
We had an early train to catch on the last day and we'd asked for some breakfast packed to go. Bearing in mind the wide variety of food that was served each day, we were very disappointed with what was packed. There were two types of sandwiches - one type was literally two slices of plain white bread with just slices of cheese, the other type was with smoked salmon. There was nothing else. No ham, no vegetables of any sort in the sandwiches, absolutely nothing else. It would have been nice to have a nice proper sandwich. This was far below the standard of the food served at the restaurant. Apart from that, in the takeaway bag were a bottle of juice, and an apple and an orange.
The gym was small but adequate. The machines were hi-tech. The pool and jacuzzi were great. The view was to die for. The steam room and sauna area is the best I've seen in the world thus far. Inside the sauna room, there was music playing and tiny LED lights on the ceiling. The steam in the steam room had a nice relaxing fragrance which made the experience very very pleasant.
I wish I had the chance to try the massage but I could not get a free slot for my timing.
