“Edelweiss Apartment - excellent”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Six adults we stayed for 6 nights. A lovely new, modern and spacious self contained apartment in excellent condition with a very well equipped kitchen. Large fridge, 2 ovens and everything else that you need. 2 bathrooms/toilets which is a necessity with 6 adults.. Great views from the balcony. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel Oberland is in a great position, just a few minutes walk from the station. Lauterbrunnen is a wonderful place to stay and great for day trips or for the skier. We stocked up on supplies at the large supermarket opposite Interlaken Ost Station on the way and then only had to replenish from the local supermarket. Would certainly use again.

We stayed 4 nights in the Crystal studio apartment across the road from the actual hotel. Minimum stay is 5 nights, but even with the cost of 5 nights (600 CHF total), it still averaged cheaper than hotel rooms we found in the area. It was spacious and quiet. Bed was equipped with the fluffiest blankets you just sink into, We made dinner x 2 in our kitchenette to save some money (food is EXPENSIVE!) My only disappointment was the patio which wasn't really much of a patio to sit on to soak up the view. Bathroom could use better lighting as well.

The owners treated us and all their guests with such friendliness you feel right at home.

Lauterbrunnen was the absolute perfect spot to stay. It was so convenient to take day trips anywhere in the region. We walked to the grocery store, bike rentals, restos, shops, train station, laundry, as we would as if we were on a resort. We were so glad we didn't decide to stay in Interlaken - you just don't get the same postcard-Switzerland feel as you would in Lauterbrunnen. We miss waking up to the sounds of waterfall and cowbells!

We will definitely stay in the Crystal studio when we return to Switzerland!

Room Tip: as long as you don't care for daily housekeeping service, why not go with the studio - cheaper...

Booked this for a ski holiday of 6 days with my two sons.
Apartment was pleasantly better than the website description, and more than met our expectations, esp. given the price we paid.

Key points were:
1. Management family were very friendly, welcoming, and helpful
2. Apartment was in excellent condition, with high standard of equipment: newish d/w, f/f, dbl oven, hob; plenty of utensils. One very large lounge/diner/kitchen/dbl sofa-bed room, corridor to good-size double or twin bedroom, and separate shower/wc
3. Everywhere was immaculately clean
4. Heating and hot water was abundant: essential after a long day of exertion on a cold slope. Shower was hot and strong; no bath
5. Location: right on the high street just 4 mins walk from the railway station. Opposite the ski hire shop.
6. Parking: free car parking all week right outside the door.

Whilst Lauterbrunnen is not on the slopes and you have to take the train up and down, there are some unseen advantages to this: prices are cheaper than in Wengen, food shopping is handier and cheaper, the ski train starts from Lauterbrunnen so you get seats if you join from there, whereas getting on in Wengen can mean standing room only. Best of all, if you drive out you can take all your bags (and food supplies) right up to the apartment door, and not have to lug bags onto the train and on into Wengen.

Mark, Ursula and their team made our Swiss White Christmas memorable. They provided breakfast and a traditional 4 course Swiss meal every night. They also gave great advice on where and what to do when we asked. Their Christmas Eve and Christmas Day celebrations were delightful with Santa paying a visit with a gift for everyone. This 3 star establishment is ideally located for trips up the mountains and down to other sites and excellent value for money. The Albatross Swiss Christmas experience at the Oberland was well worth it. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Top floor being the 4th floor, best views and no footsteps from above.

My husband and I spent a week at the end of December into early January at the Hotel Oberland in Lauterbrunnen. This was our third stay at this charming hotel. We enjoyed everything about our vacation. The room was clean and comfortable, the food at the restaurant was delicious and extremely well prepared, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the special New Year's Eve dinner with the bell ringers was fantastic! It is clear to us that the owners, Mark and Ursula, are conscientious people who care about the quality of their hotel and strive to provide each guest a comfortable and relaxing home in the beautiful Swiss alps. Bravo!

Room Tip: Room 38 has a great view of the waterfall. Eat at the Hotel Oberland restaurant whenever possible...

We stayed for 5 nights in the family room with 2 teenage boys roomier than most hotels. The food was excellent and I would recommend the half board at this hotel. There was a games room for the kids to play games, watch TV or chat. It is a very well run hotel and close to the railway.
