Some of Wengen’s hotels have been in business for well over a century. There are luxury 4-star hotels with impressive facilities here, but a commitment to good service extends far below this level to mid-priced and even budget hotels and guesthouses. Similarly there are some very comfy self-catering apartments, but they tend to be in homely chalets rather than flashy residences.
The pick of the 4-star hotels is probably the Beausite Park Hotel. It gets very high user ratings from its guests and is well located, near the Wengen-Männlichen lift and the nursery slopes. Inside it has a good spa with all the usual facilities. The Sunstar Hotel is close by and also has an indoor pool and sauna. Hotel Maya Caprice looks like an enormous chalet. It’s at the foot of the slopes and is about 200m from the main lift and 100m from the station. Hotel Silberhorn Wengen is also central. Allegedly it’s only 1 minute’s walk away from the ski school meeting point, which might be a selling point for time-stressed parents. In contrast, the Wengener Hof is 5 minutes walk from the centre, but its comparative splendid isolation helps it to have some of the best views in Wengen (and therefore, arguably, in the whole of the Alps). Heading back into the centre, the Hotel Regina is in an impressive and picturesque 19th century building. It’s famous for its gourmet restaurant Chez Meyers, but for those who want to keep healthy, it also has a wellness centre with sauna and hammam.
There are plenty of 3-star hotels to choose from. The most highly rated by previous guests includethe family-run Hotel Alpenrose which is the oldest hotel in Wengen, the much more modern Hotel Bären, and the Hotel Schönegg which is both pretty and central. Also worth noting is the Belvédère hotel in its eye-catching Art Nouveau building. It’s on the edge of town and so a good 5 minute walk from the centre, but has lovely views. And if you want the kind of spa and indoor swimming pool that’s normally associated with a 4-star hotel in a 3-star hotel, that’s available too, courtesy of the Arenas Resort & Spa Victoria-Lauberhorn, which is near the centre.
There are also budget hotels and guesthouses in Wengen. The Edelweiss hotel is a 2-star hotel only four minutes’ walk from the train station with a well equipped games room for children (table tennis, table football) a sauna and a restaurant. Wengen also has something that is increasingly rare in the Alps – a decent 1-star hotels within 5 minutes’ walk of the ski-lifts, namely the Hotel Bernerhof. (It also has ApartHotels accommodation- see below.) Even closer to the slopes is the Hotel Residence Brunner because you can ski to its front door (snow conditions permitting). It does not have any stars but it gets good reviews from its guests.
You can use the accommodation finder below not only to search and book these and other hotels and guesthouses but also to check availability, compare prices, see hotel/guesthouse locations in the village and read the latest previous guest reviews and ratings. If you can not find what you want it will automatically expand to include hotels in nearby villages and towns like Grindelwald, Murren, Lauterbrunnen and Interlaken
Self-catering Apartments, ApartHotels and Chalets in Wengen
If you can’t decide between a self-catering apartment or a hotel room, the Aparthotel Résidence Bernerhof might be a good start. The apartments have their own kitchens but you’re only a few yards away from the hotel and its inhouse pizzeria, so you don’t have to cook every night.
More conventional but extremely smart and comfortable self-catering apartments are often in chalets which have been split into multiple units. 5-star examples include Chalet Bella Vista, Chalet Aquilia and Chalet Brunner.
But this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are dozens and dozens of other apartments, some in chalets and some in larger residences. and there are also a few whole chalets available too for larger groups.
