This hotel has the dual benefit of being just about 20 steps from the train stop but you don't feel like you are near a train station in that you are in a quaint, quiet, picturesque town in the mountains! We stayed two nights. This was my favorite part of our entire trip through Europe. The staff was friendly and efficient, breakfast was included and was by far the best breakfast we had in Europe. There was a little food market next door. Free Wifi and a kettle in the room. and a little porch to view the mountains. There was plenty of room for our family of four. We didn't feel squished here as we did in other hotels across Europe. We also did our favorite activity from here, took the train to Lauterbrunnen and 45min walk to the Trummelbachfalle, which is essentially caves behind waterfalls. Expect to get wet, and wear sneakers or similar. This was our kids favorite part of the entire trip.

This is our sixth summertime stay at the Silberhorn, which says it all really. A modern treatment of one of the original 19th century hotels in Wengen. The Director and his team always make us feel welcome. For the health conscious there is a wellness centre and a new gym. Located a few steps from the picturesque mountain railway it provides an excellent centre for exploring the beautiful Jungfrau alpine region.

Traveling around Switzerland by train is so easy and if you can find a great hotel near the train station, that's a big bonus. I found it in Wengen. Stayed at the Silberhorn 3 nights. Arrived late the first night as the restaurant was closing. Manager sent a salad and wine to my room within 10 minutes. My upgraded room on the 5th floor was like an attic bedroom in someone's house. Quaint, warm, comfortable, loved it! Needed the hug from the room after traveling over 12 hours that day. Breakfast is over the top, just about anything you could want. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Stay here!

We got a great deal on this room and wish we were staying longer than just one night. The hotel is a little older, but the charm is definitely there. The staff is very friendly and informative. Breakfast was also included in our meal and was great- we had an assigned table and had so many options of foods to choose from. There is free wifi and a kettle in the room. They also leave some apples for you, for a nice touch. Wengen is a great area- if you're traveling to Switzerland this area is worth the trip.

Fanatstic location, excellent staff and comfortable rooms. I think, all in all, its the best place to stay in Wengen. Excellent breakfast. The kettle in the room was an added bonus and so was the afternoon tea with freshly baked cake.

Room Tip: Room with balcony and view of Jungfrau is definitely worth it.

Lovely hotel, friendly staff, 5 course meal in evenings with three choices of main course. Large bedroom with 40" flat screen TV, free wi-fi and drink making facilities (important for us Brits). Wengen is a lovely place and is a perfect location for hiking, we travelled around the area a lot and therefore the Jungfraubahnen pass was very good value at 185 francs for 6 days, well worth it. Jungfraujoch was very impressive, we spent over three hours there and really enjoyed it.

This Hotel enjoys one of the most stunning locations in Wengen, in the centre of the village, directly opposite the unobtrusive railway station.Upon arrival we were immediately and without fuss directed to our south facing superior room. My wife and I both said WOW! as we opened the bedroom door to observe the view from the balcony, of the Lauterbrunnental and its waterfalls. The room was immaculate,if a little dated in decor and illumination, the bathroom was large, modern, extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean.The quality and quantity of all food eaten was to a high standard throughout our stay. The staff, from the manager down, were courteous, helpful and genuinely happy to be of service. As in all of Switzerland, drinks prices were expensive, probably more so due to the fact that Wengen is a car free village causing most supplies to arrive after several train journeys.This Hotel is truly one of the best places in which to base for the Bernese Oberland area of Switzerland.This hotel was at all times during our stay, immaculately clean. We hope to visit again.

Room Tip: Superior rooms with balcony have superb views, south facing of the Lauterbrunnen valley
