“Heaven!”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

We took the train across Switzerland from Paris, which I would recommend to anyone. I did a lot of research to find this gem and I couldn't have been happier. I mainly chose it for the geographic beauty and proximity to Jungfrau. My husband requested a room with the waterfall view (Stabbach Falls - 300 meters in height). We arrived late at night, so went straight to bed. I woke up right before sunrise and went onto the patio where I thought I was in heaven. The view is the most beautiful I had ever seen. As the sun came up, it became even more beautiful. You absolutely cannot take a bad picture in this region. This is a photographers dream.

Breakfast was wonderful - nice variety, with a breathtaking view of the waterfall from our table by the window. One of the staff members (I want to say Maria?) was extremely friendly and helpful. She visited each guest, helped them with their daily plans, gave tips and advice, etc... She actually helped us plan our whole first day, giving us exact instructions on how to reach each area, choices we had, how long each hiking segment was, modes of transport, and so on; it was the perfect day. We were fortunate because we had perfect weather the whole time we were there - no rain.

The manager was exceptional, as well. She was very helpful in answering our questions, making suggestions for us, and very friendly, always - just like all the staff we encountered during our stay. I have nothing but good things to say about all of them. Also, the staff is multilingual.

Our room was very simple. It was tiny and amenities were very basic, but everything else was so perfect we didn't care. The balcony was the highlight of our room; in fact, we slept with the doors open part of the night to enjoy the view and fresh air.

The town was quaint and picturesque, but the shops are pricey, even for simple things. Bottled water was very pricey in this area, and was $10 a bottle when we were near the top of Shilthorn. I highly recommend the Jungfraujoch, Shilthorn, and Trummelbach Falls (Europe's largest subterranean waterfalls) ; also, hiking, riding the various modes of transportation, and anything and everything you have the time and money to do - you won't regret any of it. We can't wait to go back. If you are looking for outdoor fun, beautiful scenery, clean air, and a down-to-earth place to lie your head, this is a great choice.

Room Tip: I highly recommend getting a room with a balcony facing the waterfall.

Well located in Lauterbrunnen, this hotel served our needs during a brief to day stay in the area in October, 2011.
The room was not fancy, but serviceable. The breakfast buffet was most appreciated. We understand that some renovations will be taking place soon.

My wife and I recently spent two days in Lauterbrunnen during our European whirlwind tour via the rails. We booked in at the Hotel Staubbach as it seemed to be the perfect base for exploring the Alps and was bolstered by a number of positive Trip Advisor reviews. That said, here's a summary of our Hotel Staubbach experience:

Rooms - Very clean and comfortable. We had booked a balcony room on the top floor facing the street, and had a lovely view of the waterfall as well. The room itself has a very rustic, swiss feel to it (like that of a chalet) that adds to the already incredible atmosphere (you're surrounded by the alps!). The room's door locks are the old style, keyhole variety, so its always amusing that you can both look yourself out and in, so hang onto your key!

Front desk/staff: Super friendly and exceptionally helpful and with no hassles checking in or out. Every staff member we met was great at answering our questions and showing us the best way to explore the area. The Stabbauch's staff are truly an asset to the hotel!

Breakfast - probably the best deal going! Not only is it included in the room rate, but there's a very nice selection of items to choose from. One of our most relaxing moments in Lauterbrunnen was eating breakfast while gazing out at the panoramic alpine view around us.

Location - Fantastic location in an absolutely stunning setting. The hotel is less than a 10 minute walk from Lauterbrunnen's main (and only) train station. The main street is so atmospheric that one does feel they've left behind reality and entered a storybook village.

The bottom line - The Hotel Stabbauch most definitely deserves its current #1 Trip Advisor ranking for the Jungfrau region based on our personal experience. From the fantastic staff, cozy rooms, great breakfast and unparalleled views, I can only hope I'm afforded the opportunity to stay here again sometime in the future. Five out of five, no question.

We had a fantastic stay in the hotel. It is located about 10 mins from the train station and quite a bit of a uphill walk. Not easy with luggage but the effort was well worth it. We paid for a room with a balcony and boy...what a views! Truly well worth the extra money. The room was a good size and an equally big bathroom (separate by the vanity area and the toilet). Breakfast was good. Have never seen red shelled hard boiled eggs before in my life. Service is great...the staff was so helpful. They have a TV room and couple of computers for us at the TV room. Free wifi is a definitely plus for me. They also offer free tea and coffee in the lounge area till about 9 pm. We bought some food from the supermarket and had it at the lounge area which was very comfortable.
We checked out early and left our luggage to make our trip to Jungfrau. When we return, the staff still offered us tea before we leave to catch our train.....
One of our best hotels in our trip.

Room Tip: Pay extra for the balcony facing the mountains and the waterfall. You won't regret it.

Nicer place in a lovely small town. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel is old but well kept. Room was big and roomy by European standards. The breakfast was very good and a great way to start the day!

Spent 2 nights here, was a nice relaxed atmosphere. Staff were really friendly and helpful checking weathr forecasts and making recommendations. Things like breakfast, tea and coffee, wifi are all included in the price so you know what your paying up front. Rooms are comfortable and when you open your door in the morning onto your balcony you have an amazing view. They saff even arranged for it to snow overnight!!

I booked this hotel on behalf of my parents who are in their early 60s. I emailed back and forth with the staff to make arrangements and they were incredibly accommodating.

My parents can't say enough positive things about this hotel. We splurged on a room with a balcony facing the waterfall and it was worth every penny. The setting is gorgeous, the breakfast was delicious and the service was second to none. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Spring for the balcony facing the waterfall.
