2. Don't like to be on main drag with other places around. Prefer off the beaten path or at least on outskirts of towns. Any recommendations for places?
There's a small family-run hotel on the outskirts of Wengen that I have stayed in and really like. It's the Hotel Bellevue. I initially chose it based on a comment in Kim's report about Wengen and the Jungfrau Region (thanks Kim!): Kim said it had the best view in Wengen. She wasn't wrong!
If you do stay at the Bellevue, book a south-facing room with a view of the Jungfrau. It costs a bit more, but is absolutely worth it. I would recommend eating dinner there on at least one night. In warm weather, you can eat on the terrace, which also looks onto that beautiful view, and the food is excellent. You might be lucky enough to see the Alpenglow one night at sunset (it doesn't happen every night).
The hotel is situated in the north-western outskirts of the village, about 10 minutes' walk from the Wengen railway station. The hotel will transport you and your luggage between the hotel and the railway station on arrival and departure. (Wengen is a car-free village, accessible only by train, but the hotels have small electric vehicles they use to transport guests and their luggage.)
I have attached some photos of the hotel, the views from the hotel, Wengen village, and an aerial view showing the location of the hotel.
Hope this helps you in your planning.
