Decent food and a great wine list were the gravy to a overwhelming view from Sonnenberg. Best would be to go there in warm weather so that you can enjoy the great terrace. There is ample parking space and the environment is calling for a digestion walk after lunch.

The view is breathtaking and the staff really nice. The bedrooms are confortable and very clean. As it is up in the mountains, there is no noisy! We didn’t get to know the restaurant as it closes on Mondays, but breakfast is delicious! Right next to it there is a funicular that

We stayed at this hotel a couple of weeks back and LOVED it; couldn't recommend it further. The room was large bright and airy, we had a balcony with stunning 360 views of Kriens, with the sweeping landscape and valleys. We did see some of the other rooms were a little smaller /

A nice sized, modern room. Good water pressure, consistent water temperature, nice bedding, ample electric outlets, and plenty of room for your luggage and stuff. Other than the lack of an elevator, we would have liked this hotel in September. Unfortunately, we were here in

Dear DG Thank you very much for your review. We appreciate, that you liked the Hotel Sonnenberg. Unfortunately we do not have Aircondition, it's also marked on every booking-plattform that we are NOT equipped with. We are very sorry, that you visited Switzerland when it was hot and sunny - in a Hotel outside the city with a great panoramic view. Due to climate-friendly laws in Switzerland, it's forbidden to chill a room to a temperature more than 6 (six) degrees lower than the outside temperature. So also with AC, the temperature in the night won't be much colder than it was. As the morning manager told you, we do not have mosquitos in Switzerland, we call them midges. Mosquitos can transmit a number of serious diseases including malaria and Encephalitis, first we do not have any of this diseases in switzerland, second the midges we have in Switzerland are much smaller than the well know mosquitos from other regions more south. But: we are sorry that you had a not so good night and well discuss some improvements, to help you Sleep without a midges-bite the next time when you come. I hope this answer finds you well and i look forward to see you again.

The train station is in the town whereas Sonnenberg is quite high up in the surrounding hills. You would need to get a taxi or a lift from a friend, otherwise it would be a steep walk.

We stayed in a double room with our own private bathroom. Not sure about single rooms. Lots to see & do in Austria, especially visiting the scenes from the "Sound of Music". We did lots of walking to sight see the parks and along the river. Just beautiful. We were there for 2 nights. Breakfast was included in our price and it was lovely & plentiful. The staff were very friendly & helpful. Would recommend this B & B.
