Prior to a river cruise in early June this year we spent three fabulous days in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland. We stayed at the Hotel-Restaurant Schutzen and, particularly looking back, it was a great selection. Our host/owner Andreas was very friendly and hospitable. The rooms were quite adequate, clean and the beds very comfortable. We ate two meals there and the food was good.
We walked from the train station to the hotel and it took about 10-15 minutes. It was slightly uphill (but downhill when you leave) but the town of Lauterbrunnen takes your mind off of any possible fatigue that might begin to set in. It is easy to spot the hotel because there is a high waterfall that can be seen in the distance behind the hotel.
We would stay there again.
We considered staying in Grindelwald but I think Lauterbrunnen was the right choice. Plus, if you are traveling to Grindelwald in the next few months note that there is major construction in the downtown area. I'm sure it will be nice when completed but a bit torn up right now.
