Reviewed 3 August 2014

After reading some reviews here about this hotel, I specifically indicated rooms that I want to the hotel through email. They replied very quickly and when we arrived, we were allocated to exactly what we wanted. Staff were friendly and helpful. When we checked in, the staff at the reception offered to show us to our rooms and help with our luggage.
We were so happy to stay here as our base to the surrounding swiss alps. We had room 35 and 36. Room 36 is at the corner so you'll have both the valley view and able to see the waterfall from the other side. The view is spectacular! I could just sit there all day to watch. Rooms are clean and comfortable. But bear in mind that this isn't one of those luxurious chain hotels that some people normally stay at, you won't get rain shower nor enormous bath tub. This hotel gives you the swiss feeling though. The room itself has more than anything you'll need to be honest.
Great location, just a 2-3mins walk to station and basically can be easily access to places such as Murren, Wengen and Interlaken.
Already thinking of coming back so surely I would highly recommend this place to everyone.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher level would have a better view of the valley but be prepared to climb the stairs eve...

Our family of four had a wonderful stay in the Bargfee apartment, this is a self contained apartment across the road from the main hotel. This was by far the best apartment that we stayed in on our holiday, heaps of room, comfortable, close to the train station, cable cars, supermarket and best of all the views from the room.
Communication with the hotel and the staff were very helpful and one night we also had dinner in the hotel which was very good.
If your going to the Swiss Alps and looking for a base, Lauterbrunnen and the Bargfee apartment in the Hotel Silberhorn is a fantastic combination.

We stayed in this hotel 2 weeks ago in July for two nights. It was a dream! We LOVED our corner third balcony room and had a 2 bedroom suite with a cozy bedroom in the back of the suite. The staff was helpful and informative. We made a great choice in this hotel...the location was perfect for catching the train up to Wengen and grabbing a bite to eat in town.

This was our second visit to the Silberhorn within the last two years. Again, we had a room at the front of the hotel with fantastic views. The breakfasts were excellent and the location can't be beat for Lauterbrunnen because it is off the main street. The Silberhorn has a very helpful and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Request the corner room at the end of the hall on the 2nd floor (our 3rd floor). The views are terrr...

Not a single complaint regarding this hotel. Easily booked and reconfirmed online communication. We were a family of four traveling (two teenage children). Conveniently located right above the train station, Murren Cable car, bus stop, and Co-Op. Located at one end of town and an easy walk down the main drag from one end of town to the other to all the local spots. We were located in the building across the drive from the main hotel. Our room was amazing, slept four adult size people comfortably with a spectacular view of the falls and mountains beyond. Enjoyed every evening with our feet up on the balcony enjoying the view and peace and quiet. Room was spotless and ample in size. Bathroom was perfect and recently updated - all new fixutres and modern conveniences. Breakfast was fantastic with ample offerings. Grounds with gardens are beautiful. Staff was responsive to all our needs and requests. Lauterbrunnen is the perfect jumping off point for endless days of fun all over the Jungrau mountain region and the Hotel Silberhorn is the perfect place to rest at the end of those days of adventure!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the falls.

Our review is a year overdue. My family of 4, mom, dad, and two early 20's daughters, flew into Munich last June and rented a car with the goal of discovering Bayern, Austria, and Switzerland with no planned reservations. We booked 1 night at the Silberhorn from the road in Austria, thinking we'd do the next night in Interlaken. We ended up staying 4 nights at the Silberhorn. We so loved Lauterbrunnen and the Silberhorn, we decided the next unknown adventure couldn't be better. The room views were stunning, the staff was great, including the personal attention of the owner, and the restaurant was the best in town. You can hike, train or tram to dozens of stunning locations. We got lucky. Our daughters are planning a return trip next summer. Our favorite stop of the trip. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Most rooms have good views, but check. Many have to die for views.

Originally I was thinking of staying 2 nights each in both sides of the valley. I decided to stay the whole 4 nights in this part of our family trip in Lauterbrunnen instead, which turned out an excellent decision, given I had two kids in tow and with the luggages as well. Although it would have been good to stay in Murren as well, which is a lovely little village.

My kids and I stayed in the Staubbach falls room, which is a room that has a splendid view of its namesake, Staubbach falls. The room was pretty nice, it is actually in a different building than the main note building, according to the owner they have several buildings around the area. The kids liked the huge bathtub, where they play and take a bath after a long day of walking and exploring.

The breakfast was good, the usual variety of bread and cheese is part of the breakfast spread. I would say it is nothing special but it is adequate.

The transportation to go up the either side of the valley is just near the hotel.
The train station is near the hotel, there is quite an incline to reach the hotel but should be nothing you can't handle. This is the station that you will arrive from Interlaken. It is the same station that will lead you up to the left side of the valley, to Wengen and then to Jungfau.

Around the corner is the cable car that goes up to Grutshalp, after which you will transfer to a train that ran along the side of the valley, which you can get a good look of the valley floor and the other side of the valley, this train leads to Murren. From there you can walk through Murren and reach another cable car that will lead to Birg and then to Schilthorn.

Both Jungfrau and Schilthorn are worth going up to, no matter how expensive they are. One has a different feel from the other so I recommend to climb both but in different days.

Room Tip: Choose the Staubbach room :)
