We stayed at Apartment Stockli in Lauterbrunnen for a week in 2008 and loved it. You can catch trains/gondolas to all the areas from Lauterbrunnen. Apartment Stockli is a good price and the balcony has a great view of Staubach falls!

I stayed at the Hotel Staubbach in Lauterbrunnen in 2006. Old, creaky and funky. Just what I was looking for

You have several threads going and will get lots of different answers.

since you are staying a full week, an apartment is by far th emost cost-effective for a family of three. You can locate them on this website:

http://www.myjungfrau.ch/en/welcome.cfm

click on "Accommoddations" and then select the village in which you are interested, and then go to "Apartments".

By way of illustration, this one in Lauterbrunnen is 110 CHF per night (summer rate) for 3 people:

In Mürren, the highly-regarded Chalet Böbs is 120 to 140 CHF a night:

And there are many more.

Lauterbrunnen is much better than Interlaken. Of course, the time of the year you plan to go makes a difference. Hiking in February is vastly different than hiking in July. Lauterbrunnen Valley is surrounded on one side my Mürren and the other side by Wengen. The Chalet Fontana in Mürren is highly popular and probably the best bargain in the Alps. It's about 40Chf per person including breakfast.

Christine, we stayed at the Silberhorn in Lauterbrunnen and it was quite nice. I would recommend Lauterbrunnen over other locations because it has the best access to both cliff areas: Muerren and Wengen. Dinner at the Hotel Oberland is wonderful. Unless you want to be in the middle of nowhere, don't consider Gimmelwald.

Lola and David are spot on. We stayed at the Anton-graf apartment in 2008. It was very nice. There are many others on the web site Lola provided. Hotel Oberland has the best Rosti and is always where we have our first meal on arrival. We always stay in Lauterbrunnen. However, if you have your hear set on a breathtaking view out our room windows, look into Muerren (but you might have to pay extra for the view.) Have a great trip.

We stayed at the Hotel Staubbach in July 2008 and absolutely loved it. Rooms were good (we paid extra for a room with a view of the valley and Jungfrau and it was well worth it), and the staff were very friendly and helpful. At breakfast they mingled with all the guests and were asking if they could help plan anything. Really appreciated it.

I second hotel Staubach. The hotel is no frills, but comfortable and clean. The staff are some of the friendliest I have encountered in Europe. We were traveling with our two year old and they were very knowledgable about the area - even to the point of recommending stroller friendly hiking trails.
