“Just wonderful”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

During a 10 night rush trip through Europe we stayed two nights. Without doubt this place was the pick of all the places we stayed. The level of attention and service was first class. I loved having to only make one decision,"are we eating in at night" We said yes both nights and had lovely meals. A birthday cake was provided and we were truly looked after. Thank you for providing a superb hotel.
You deserve the excellent rating.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view.. Worth the exra cost.

We stayed one night at the Hotel Bellevue prior to our week's rental at a chalet in Wengen. We arrived after many long hours of travel and were greeted warmly by the host. The hotel is a little bit of an uphill walk from the train station, maybe 8-10 minutes. We were glad to see the Bellevue "trolley," which took our heavy bags to the hotel for us. We slowly walked to the hotel enjoying the views along the way. Our first-floor room faced south and had a shared balcony, which was very nice and had beautiful views. We had the balcony to ourselves in the evening, but the next morning a neighbor was smoking on the balcony, so we had to close our door and window. It was very, very warm in Wengen and the room was quite warm also. We would have liked to keep the door and window open all night, but didn't feel comfortable doing that with being on a lower level.
The bed and bedding was comfortable, but I wish we'd had sheets and not just the duvet with comforter. (I guess that's a Swiss/European custom?) The room was so overly warm that it was too hot to sleep under the comforter - a light sheet would have been perfect! The room was small and the bathroom "snug." However, everything was spotlessly clean.
The breakfast buffet was very good; there was good variety of meats, cheeses, breads, and juice, coffee, tea. Checkout was easy and our bags, to our delight, were transported back to the train station for us.
I would definitely recommend the Bellevue, mostly for its excellent location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the mountains.

Thank you very much for your review. We are sorry about the hot weather you had during your stay. With pleasure we would have changed your comforter to sheets if you would have ask us and we would also have given you a room on a higher floor and other situation to avoid the smoke of another guest on the first floor.
We hope we can do better next time you visit us at the Bellevue.

We stayed 3 nights at this gorgeous hotel as part of our wider 9 week European adventure. To say this is the highlight is an understatement. Wengen itself is one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen and the experience was made even more special staying at this hotel. Judith, Andi and Christiana take the best care of their guests leaving no wish unmet. The breakfast and dinner options are well worth taking. 5 course dinner each night was the nicest food you could wish for. The room is perfectly clean and comfortable and has amazing views. For those travelling longer periods like we are, there is a small laundry in the township with two washing machines and one dryer. It can get busy and make sure you have 4 x 1Chf coins for the washer and the same for the dryer. You won't regret a trip to Wengen but you would regret it if you didn't stay here with the team at Bellevue!

We arrived for a 4 day stay in this wonderland and were not disappointed. We had a corner room with an unobstructed view of the mountains - simply fabulous! This property is a bit further out than some of the other hotels but not an issue. Wengen is a great location to explore this region. The breakfast was one of the best I have had. The staff was friendly and attentive. My only criticism would be that they seemed to push you to stay for the dinner. We had a family staying next to us and there were 2 nights that we were awaken in the middle of the night to screaming and yelling. But our stay in this part of Switzerland was magical. There are few places I feel the need to revisit but the Wengen/Murren area is certainly one of them!

Thank you very much for your comments. We are very sorry that the family with the children did wake you up during the night.
As our hotel offers breakfast only or half-board (breakfast and dinner) guests who have just booked B&B have the option to book in for dinner after breakfast on the same day and as we have no à la carte restaurant we inform our kitchen in the morning about the number of guests having dinner with us. We are sorry that you felt pushed by our question before you did leave the hotel for the day.

We have been to this hotel 7 times over the years, and it cannot be beaten. Judith, Andi, Christina and all the staff are very friendly and helpful and the meals are exceptionally good. The views from the south facing rooms are amazing. In the summer it is a very good base for walking and exploring the area. There are numerous trains, cable cars etc. to whisk you up and down the mountains.

Room Tip: Book a south facing room.

Great hospitability, including tips on pretty, quiet mountaintrails.
Wengen is a small resort and can only be reached by train (trains are very reliable in Switzerland).
So no cars, no streetnoise and the air can't get much cleaner.
Hotel Bellevue is a little bit further away from the city centre, therefore very quiet, and I'd advise to book a room with a view on the mountains; you pay a little extra but I think it's definitely worth it! No tv on my room, what I found great, but check it if you do prefer a tv in your room.
Breakfast provided an excellent start for a walking day.
Hotel can arrange discount passes for a visit to Jungfraujoch: if you wanted to visit anyway, you may want to check it out.
One problem can be that the hotel is made out of wood, as most if not all of the Alpine hotels are, which provides no good isolation for noise from other guests: for a few nights, I had a very (VERY) noisy family right above me, even earplugs wouldn't help. And that means something because I am used to sleeping in noisy hotels.

Room Tip: A room with view on the mountains!

Thank you very much for your important information. We are sorry that the guests of the room above you were loud and made you to wake up. If we can offer an alternative we would move guests to another room to avoid that.

I booked this hotel for a 3 day stay in Wengen based on a YouTube video that showed a jaw dropping view from the videographers balcony. When we entered our room we were not disappointed. The hotel is an easy 5 minute walk from the train station. This location makes for quiet nights and unobstructed views of the mountains and Lauterbrunnen valley. Transportation to and from the hotel with our luggage was provided free of charge. Our room was clean and large enough for three beds. Both Judith the owner and Andi her business parter were welcoming and accommodating. We arrived one hour late for dinner due to travel delays and that was not a issue. Breakfast buffet was included and was excellent including fresh local fruit. Dinners are optional, and were excellent.
This hotel is rated 3 stars and some guests may miss TV's in the room or spas in the hotel. Personally I can stay in a 5 star hotel most anywhere, nearly all will be missing this view.

Room Tip: All south facing balconies make you feel as if you are hanging over the Lauterbrunnen valley.
