We opted to stay in Grindelwald for our time spent in the Jungfrau region. We were thinking of staying in one of the other smaller villages higher up in the valleys, but the weather was looking iffy and we had a rental car that we wanted to make use of to explore the region.
Grindelwald, while known as being a more "touristy" and busy village in the region is still fairly small and provides awesome views of the Eiger and surrounding peaks. We found it to be a great home-base for day trips up the mountains via gondolas and trains to the other small mountain villages and various sights. I'm not sure if all rooms face the same direction, but the rooms that overlook the main road and the valley up to the Eiger are amazing. I spent every evening relaxing on the small balcony in absolute awe of the mountains and incredibly bright green hills. A walk down to the lobby bar to pick up a large cold glass of local beer to bring back up to the room to be enjoyed with the balcony view capped off a great day of exploring/hiking.
The rooms at the Jungfrau lodge were clean (albeit older) and comfortable. The included breakfast was decent with a good selection of usual german/swiss items (cheeses, breads, cereals, yogurts, juice, coffee, dried fruits, etc...). Considering how pricy things are in Switzerland, the Jungfrau lodge was a good deal.
They offer wifi, but you have to pay about 5CHF for 24 hour login credentials (I've seen worse). The staff was friendly and the ladies at the front desk helped us purchase a couple of gondola/cable car tickets as well as a pair of train tickets up to Wengen.
As I said, there is a lot to do and see in the region, and I feel that Grindelwald was a good base for heading out to the other towns (especially if you have a car at your disposal). If so, I can recommend the Jungfrau Lodge as a budget-friendly yet quality accommodation.
