Our Picks

The Hotel Silberhorn is right across the train station and, though it’s only second-ranked in TripAdvisor, tends to have the more enthusiastic reviews from previous guests. It has a wide range of accommodations — from single rooms to suites — and it’s the overall perfect choice for visitors who prefer the convenience of a hotel.

If you want the best value for money, Valley Hostel offers comparably highly rated accommodations at significantly lower prices to the other accommodations in this list. It’s only a 5-minute walk from the train station, accepts children, and even has a family room. Female solo travellers also have the option of booking a bed at their female-only dorm. Bathrooms are shared at Valley Hostel, but as hostel veterans know, that actually means less mess and more space inside the living quarters, plus, shared bathrooms are typically larger and easier to move around in too, meaning the lack of an ensuite can actually be a good thing. It’s just excellent value for money all around.

Finally, if you want the feel if having your own Alpine home amongst the chalets scattered around the meadows of Lauterbrunnen, Apartment Pironnet is a great choice, and not as expensive as larger private homes. Children are welcome and the apartment can accommodate a maximum of 5 guests.

There are other great accommodations further down the road but the hotels and apartments in this list are the best ones within a short walking distance from the Lauterbrunnen train station. Book now so you can stay at your accommodation of choice!
