“Very friendly and homely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

It is a lovely homely hotel very close to centre of Lauterbrunnen and a few minutes walk to the train station, yet it is quiet, so you can listen to the waterfalls from the garden or balcony. We had dinner two nights in the Restaurant, both lovely meals.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the Hotel Silberhorn for three nights. We found the staff extremely accommodating, friendly and helpful. We had a room (16) with a view of the falls. The room is small and quaintly decorated. The closet and bathroom were very small, but fine enough for our use. The beds were comfortable and the hotel was very quiet. The breakfast buffet was very complete and the breakfast room is charming. The hotel is just a block from the train station and even closer to the gondola that goes to Murren. We ate dinner in the dining room twice and had wonderful service and good food. We loved the little town and did a lot of exploring in the area while staying at the Hotel Silberhorn.

The hotel is a little old fashioned but the stunning view from the lil balcony is amazing and a great reason to stay there. The staff is friendly n helpful but the Buffet breakfast was basic. We enjoyed our stay in this typical swiss hotel but missed the tea arrangement in the room.

Room Tip: No lifts so be careful which floor you choose. The front road facing rooms have an amazing view.

At first glance, you might be tempted to stay elsewhere - the décor in the lobby and hallways is a bit dated. But if you did you'd be doing yourself a disservice. From the stunning in-room views to the excellent food in the restaurant, this hotel is a pleasant surprise. But what puts it over the top for a five-star rating is the fantastic staff. They are phenomenal. We had a very early train to catch on the day of our departure, and I asked them if there was a way we could grab some coffee on the way out, as the breakfast room wouldn't be opened yet. They graciously obliged, and said it would be out for us when we left. Not only did we find coffee waiting for us, but they made each of us (six in total) a bag of goodies to enjoy on the trip. Very thoughtful, and a great example of going the extra mile to delight customers.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the "chalet". Otherwise, as of 7/2013 not all rooms had yet been renova...

Great hotel, very well located just above the railway station, and right next to to the cable car up to Murren in the picturesque town of Lauterbrunnen, . Hotel has an excellent restaurant featuring Swiss and international cuisine and wines.

Sprayed here last minute as we had made a mistake with dates. They were so accommodating and the room was fantastic. They even allowed me to order wine and desert for the room quite late in the evening. Breakfast was typical European spread.

We had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Silberhorn. Our room was very comfortable, and the view from the balcony was absolutely beautiful. It was very relaxing in the morning and evening to sit on the balcony and enjoy the pastoral setting of the mountains across from us. The view in July was lots of green, tiny houses, some cows, and a cable car delivering people up the mountain. It is in a great location, very close to the train station and cable car, with free WiFi and breakfast, which is served in a delightful sunlit room. It does require a short uphill climb from the train station to get to it. The proprietor was friendly and very helpful in giving directions to surrounding attractions.

Room Tip: The view from Room 14 in the main building was perfect!
