We selected the Hotel Edelweiss in Wengen based on its cost, location, and promised views. We were not disappointed. It was reasonably priced, in a good location and offered wonderful views from the room and attached balcony. It was a 5-minute downhill walk from the train station. We arrived in the lobby before 11:15 a.m. and were quickly checked-in, offered advice on activities and hikes for that afternoon, and shown the way to our room over 4 hours prior to scheduled check-in time.

The room was small (172 sq. ft.) but provided us with sufficient space for our belongings with some room to move around. The room had a great view of the Jungfraujoch and a nice balcony. We did have a corner room and the light from windows on 2 different walls helped make the room feel larger.

The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was small and lacked much counter space. There was a desk in the room as well as a decent wardrobe. The hotel had a small elevator for moving luggage up and down.

Breakfast was included. The selection was adequate and food was okay. We did choose to eat dinner the hotel the 2nd night. It was reasonably priced and decent.

The hotel has numerous common areas and common rooms. Adjacent to the lobby are the dining room, a reading room, and a snack room. Downstairs offers a game room, a sauna, a music room, an old bomb shelter, and additional restrooms.

The hotel’s location was very good. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The views offered from the south-facing rooms and dining room were fantastic. If we returned to Wengen, we’d definitely stay here again.
