Reviewed 8 August 2014

We are just about to finish our 9 day stay in the beautiful town of Wengen. The hotel Baeren is a lovely hotel with amazing views, good food and lovely staff.
We stayed in their superior room with a balcony the hotel is lovely and clean with great facilities and obviously well loved and cared for by the owners. the town is car free and the station is close by get a jungfrau pass to fully appreciate the area at 250chf it appears pricey but believe me it is value for money you can use it on all the trains in the region along with the cable cars.
This has been a wonderful stay and highly recommended

The location is conveniently located within 8-10mins walk from Wengen station. Just look out for Co-op, and while keeping Co-op to your left, you will find a downward slope towards a "tunnel". Just walk through the short "tunnel", and after a 2-mins walk, u will find Hotel Baeren.
We were blessed with a room with a balcony facing the mountain. We were awed by the view! Simply breathtaking! Makes u wanna stay at this place forever!

Room was cosy and clean.

We were so glad that our accommodation package had included both breakfast and dinner. We could see how the chef had put his heart in each dish, as the portion was generous and had used fine quality ingredients for the dishes. All the dishes were tastefully decorated and were almost like art pieces for admiration. Services provided by the waitresses were commendable, as they would tentatively ask if the pace of serving the dishes is alright, and to check if u were satisfied with the food.

The dining tables, rooms and even the washrooms in the lobby were all beautifully decorated with flowers and ornaments. From the little details that the owners had put in, we can sense that they really take pride in their hotel. Thumbs up for the excellent management of the hotel!

After the hefty meal, we strongly encourage u to go for a short stroll around the hotel. We were recommended to take a 30mins stroll behind Wengen up the slope where we enjoyed a wonderful view of Lauterbrunnen with lotsa nice benches. I forgot the exact name of the place. U can ask the friendly staff at the hotel for direction.

We are glad to have stayed at Baeren during our visit to Switzerland. The reviews given by others have driven us to stay at Baeren. What a splendid stay it was!!!

The views of 3 peaks from our room balcony is unforgetable. The room itself was cosy and decorated simple yet it carries the elegance. The kids room was nice too.

We took the half meal board. Recommended option....it was great dinner set up and food was tasty. We enjoyed everything in Baeren.

Breakfast was superb with home cook delights. Great food again.

The owners were very friendly, pleasant, kind and helpful in a lot of ways. They even assisted in guiding us with the map on the activities that we can carry out at Wengen. They arranged luggage transfer to train station during our checked out time.

Only problem we had was dragging our luggage to the hotel on our arrival....hahaha....struggling to drag it there....that memory still lingers....

We will definitely stay here again. Baeren will always be our first choice in Wengen....a great stay....friendly owners and staffs....beautiful view of the 3 peaks EMJ....great hotel.

We recently stayed for 4 nights and after visiting most of the towns in the Oberland, Wengen is the place to stay (large enough town, not overly touristy, well positioned for exploring) and Hotel Baeren is the hotel!

The owners go out of their way and the staff is friendly and accomodating. The rooms are updated and bright, the bathroom is large. The views amazing. We stayed in the Lobhorn room (well worth the little extra$, the bath awesome); very spacious, large balcony and reasonably priced considering a meal plan is included in the rate. Breakfast was plentiful and it was so nice after a long day of exploring not to have to find a restaurant. The chef is wonderful and the 3 course meals delicious.

We highly recommend this hotel and speak of it foundly to our friends!

Room Tip: Pay the little extra and stay in the Lobhorn room- totally worth it!

The Hotel Baeren is a lovely place to stay. After two days of hiking in the relentless rain, we took the train from Grindelwald to Wengen and were shown to our room even though we arrived early. We were given a room with a balcony facing the mountains, and throughout the day we would occasionally catch glimpses of the imposing peaks. We were thrilled as it really was our first view of the mountains since starting our hiking tour. The room was open and airy and the bathroom a good size. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with a variety of tasty foods and good coffee. Wengen is a special place, and we enjoyed wandering around the village and meeting people, and how wonderful to return to such an inviting hotel as The Baeren and their extremely welcoming hosts. The service and hospitality were excellent.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the mountains.

Dear Guests

Thank you for the review. We are sorry about this weather this summer but we are glad you still enjoyed your stay at the Hotel Bären as well as the Village Wengen.
We hope with your next visit you will have more sun, then the mountains are even more impressing.

We stayed in the Lobhorn Room. We had a beautiful mountain view and a very spacious bathroom with a private toilet and nice shower. I absolutely loved the tub with a view of the mountains! The room was bright - all windows facing the mountains. The beds were comfortable. Please note: there is a room that shares the balcony, but it is divided.

The breakfast was a good selection of fresh, typical Swiss fare. Bread is always delicious in Switzerland. This was no exception.

The hotel has been freshly updated. It is clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Therese and Willy are very friendly and fine hosts.

It is a bit of an uphill walk into Wengen from the hotel, but what isn't uphill there? Pickup/dropoff for you and luggage is available, so not really any issue there.

I would recommend Hotel Baeren as a fine base for exploration around the area.

Thank you for the nice review. The Lobhorn room is really special with the bath tub with a view of the mountains! You can see the Lobhorn and the Breithorn from the Bath tub.
We are looking forward to your next visit

Like previous reviews, we loved our 5 night stay at Hotel Baeren. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with a full shower (5 feet long) rather than the typical 3 foot square shower. The balcony room looked out onto JungFrau mountain. The breakfast buffet was varied, fresh, and delicious. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Close to the train station, it was a great base camp for our daily adventures and hikes around the Jungfrau area. Much more relaxing than fighting the crowds coming in from Interlaken each day.

Room Tip: balcony rooms are worth it for the view every morning and evening.
