The Hotel Staubach is what you imagine a Swiss Alps hotel should be like. The hotel which dates back to the late 1800's is old but well kept. My favorite feature is the mighty Staubach Falls which seems to be located right across the street - awesome.
The breakfast is extensive from egg choices to cheeses to fruits to granola, etc., etc. The staff is the best we encountered in our 19 day trip to Europe. They are very helpful and will go the extra mile to accommodate your requests. Our favorite was Lucy, who works the front dest. This delightful and beautiful young lady is very knowledgeable of the entire area and is very helpful in providing information to help plan a day in this beautiful part of the world.

Room Tip: Request a room with a view of the Staubach Falls and the alps. Have the camera ready especially in...

We stayed at Hotel Staubbach in mid-June for four days. Our family of four (two teenage sons) stayed in adjoining rooms on the south side facing the Staubbach Falls. Although the rooms and the hotel are aging, this didn't put us off one bit. The view itself is priceless. And we can't say enough positive things about the hotel staff. From Angie and Lucy at the front desk to Maria in the breakfast room, everyone was exceptionally kind with exceptional advice and a cheerful smile. They helped arrange for our paragliding and canyoning excursions, provided great insight on daily hikes and pointed us in the direction of good restaurants.

We'd never been to Switzerland before and were delighted not only with the beauty of the Lauterbrunnen Valley, but the hospitality from the hotel staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a south-facing room so that you overlook the falls.

My first impressions on arriving were not favourable - the hotel was old (the first built in Lauterbrunnen); the room had no TV nor fridge nor tea/coffee facilities. But then I walked on to the balcony and forgot all that - the view of the waterfalls and mountains easily outweighs those matters. And the staff were friendly and helpful and clearly worked as a team with pride. Also a very convenient location with ample parking.

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking out towards the waterfalls.

My family just spent two wonderful nights at Hotel Staubbach. The hotel wasn't too far from the train station and is close to the falls.Our room was a nice size, clean, and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious. I especially enjoyed the croissants. Our only regret was that we weren't staying longer.

Our second time staying at Hotel Staubbach! Couldn't believe that it could be better than our first trip, but it was. The staff is so very helpful. Pleasant to start the day and so willing to offer suggestions on things to do. Lauterbrunnen is very convenient to use as center and travel locally.
The staff was wonderful!

The staff was definitely five star and the view was 4 1/2. The hike from the train station was a little more than we expected, but when we reached the hotel, we were greeted by such a wonderful hostess, day planner that we forgot about the hike. She was able to help us accomplish all we wanted to do in our one day stay. The hotel is very old and some things are quite charming and other things just old. We had a balcony with the most wonderful waterfall views, but there was no privacy from the next balcony and the condition of the balcony was a little questionable. We had to leave before breakfast the next morning, but were advised by the staff to just go on in the breakfast room and help ourselves. Cannot remember the names of the two staff members who were so helpful, friendly and kind. We stayed here on June 1, 2014. Lauterbrunnen was AWESOME!!!! and if we are ever able to return, we will stay here again!

Stayed in this hotel during our visit to Jungfrau. This hotel is situated in such a beautiful location.It is very close to Lauterbrunnen rail station. Reception staff were so friendly.Gave us many tips to go around the place.Helped us a lot. We even left our luggage in hotel even after Check out and went around. Staff in this hotel were very helpful. Each time we come in the hotel we get tea coffee for refreshments. View of Staubbach waterfalls was amazing from our Balcony and also just 5 minutes walk to go near by the falls. Trummelbach falls you could take a bus or walk till the falls enjoying the beautiful scenery. Cows around the area and the sound of Cowbells was amazing and so pleasant. I missed these cowbells sound after leaving this place. Definitely I will visit Lauterbrunnen again and will only stay in this hotel staubbach just because of their friendly approach and beautiful location.
