Although I have visited the picture postcard perfect village of Wengen on a number of occasions since the early 1980s, this was my first stay at the Alpenrose. I had been recommended to stay here by a good friend and the recommendation turned out to be exemplary.
From the moment you walk through the doors of the Alpenrose, you just know it is going to be a very special stay. Family owned and run, this hotel has a long (130 year) heritage to maintain and they do it exceptionally well. The staff are genuinely friendly and efficient, the rooms are scrupulously clean and the five course dinners are really memorable. The quality of food and standard of cooking are extremely high. The bar and surrounding area is incredibly comfortable. It is like a home away from home. And yet the prices are not high at all, especially when one considers the value for money aspect.
The views across the valley are quite spectacular, if like me you had a room with a balcony in front.
My skiing trip was all too short and I cannot wait to book at the Alpenrose next year. One of the nicest hotels I have stayed in, anywhere in the world.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to our alpine hotel with its long family tradition ! The Hotel Alpenrose is the oldest hotel in Wengen and has been owned and run by the same family for well over a hundred years. The 40 rooms and the lounges have been recently renovated in alpine chalet style using lots of wood and the hotel’s own antique furniture. A log fire in our lounge adds to the welcoming atmosphere after a day in the mountains. In our dining room a hearty breakfast is served from our buffet and a fine half board set menu is served in the evenings. The Hotel Alpenrose is situated about 10 walking minutes below the train station and the village centre in a quiet and pleasant location with stunning views into the beautiful valley of Lauterbrunnen and the surrounding snowcapped mountains. ... more less
