Housing in Lauterbrunnen
Housing in Lauterbrunnen deserves its own article, simply because I can cover almost all of the major options on one web page. Keep in mind these places can fill up fast, especially during high season, and since many of the room rates are completely dependent on occupancy it really does pay to have a plan. Whatever price I’ve listed is an average and will probably be different by the time you get there so double check! Room prices can be extremely variable here!
In terms of location, its safe to say that all of these hotels are close to the train station because Lauterbrunnen is tiny! However if you’re traveling with alot of luggage you may need a pick-up for some of them. Just call and ask your hotel what’s available. The closer your are to Stubbach Falls, the longer the walk.
FOR THE RECORD: We stayed at the Valley Hostel and Hotel Schutzen. We also had friends who stayed at Hotel Oberland (these are the first three hotels listed) and all of us had wonderful experiences. Beyond that- I have no further recommendations. Check out the websites, check trip advisor, and give the hotels a call before deciding. There are also a variety of hotels in Gimmelwald, Wengen, and Murren I haven’t listed.
Average cost of a room in high season: From 30-45 CHF per night (depending on whether or not you want a dorm bed or a double room)

***Valley Hostel was great. The bathrooms and rooms were incredibly clean (especially for a hostel), the views off the balcony were to die for, and the price was unbeatable (especially after we realized how expensive surrounding hotels were).
Average cost of room in high season: 90 CHF
Address: Fuhren, 3822 Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland

***Our friends Natasha and Stephen stayed here and loved it. They also mentioned ease of access from the train station and breakfast included as pluses.
Average cost of a room during high season: See the site here for details. Prices vary based on the season, current occupancy, and room type. We paid 130 CHF for our room that had two beds, a giant balcony, and a stunning view of the falls. That was in May- the hotel isn’t looking to cheat you, it’s just a sliding scale for price.

***We found Hotel Schutzen to be clean, cozy, and beautiful. The staff are so receptive, warm, and polite. The breakfast is delicious, and the view from the balcony? Unbeatable.
