Julie was very efficient & helpful when booking the apartment. It was an easy walk down from the station, with clear instructions given by Julie.
On first impression the apartment looks small, but it seemed to expand with us! It's carpeted throughout and of traditional style decor. It is in a very quiet location and we never heard a sound from the train station.
There are two decent sized double bedrooms with large built-in cupboards. The second bedroom has a built in bed above the double bed. My daughter (aged 20) slept there and had no complaints!
A lovely, light and sunny apartment, with breathtaking views. We sat out on the balcony most afternoons (the sheepskins we found in the drawers under the sofa to put on the chairs).
The gallery kitchen ( decor is dated) was surprisingly well equipped with mixers, blenders, microwave, fridge, oven and all important dishwasher. (NB The oven dishes are in a drawer under the oven, which took me two days to locate!)
The shower room is unique with twin showers, which actually came in extremely useful one day when we had a quick turnaround (!) and there is a decent sized separate toilet. Plenty of hot water was available for us all at all times of the day/evening.
We didn't use the fire, but I noticed you can buy logs in the co-op. There were plenty of games underneath the seats of the dining area to occupy us, as well as two cable TV's (with English channels) and a decent Wi-Fi connection, so everybody was happy ! There Is a separate washing & boot room downstairs, which also housed the boiler, so things dried very quickly and it was very good to be able to leave your outdoor kit down there.
We ate out at the hotel Alpenrose and hotel Bärron - Both of which were excellent and within easy walking distance.
We kept our skis in a locker opposite the station (Central sports) as the 7-10 minute uphill walk up to the station needed concentration! (easy coming home in the evenings !)
We had an excellent 10 day family holiday (with plenty of snow!) and we will definitely recommend this apartment to others. I would like to come back and visit next time in the summer.....
El apartamento situado en el primer piso de un chalet resulta agradable, bien equipado y magníficamente situado en Wengen, un pueblecito sin tráfico rodado pero perfectamente comunicado por tren. Excelentes vistas a las grandiosas montañas y a las cascadas. Perfecto para descubrir la región del Jungfrau.
