We came to this hotel on the recommendation of our daughter who had stayed there. Lauterbrunnen is a good centre for exploring the Jungfraujoch. You can get cable cars and trains to the alpine meadows and mountain tops around and from there you can walk along the well marked paths. If you are more adventurous you can take a tandem paragliding flight, or even go sky diving.
The hotel is almost at the end of the village and close to the Staubach water fall. We asked for a room with a balcony with a view of the water fall and this worked out well for us. On the days when we didn't want to walk we could take it easy just enjoying the view.
There is no room service, this is just bed and breakfast, but there is tea and coffee available all day long in the lounge.
The staff come round to each table at breakfast time and ask what plans you have for the day and give practical advice on how to achieve them. For example if you have an idea for a walk, they can tell you which cable cars etc you need and how long it is going to take and how difficult it is. This was a great strength of the hotel.
The hotel isn't luxurious, but only claims to be "two star". I can't really tell if this was good value or not because everything in Switzerland seems to be so expensive.
I would recommend this, and would want to stay here again if I visited this part of Switzerland.
