Stayed here for two days. Clean, relaxing and wonderful property. Around 1.2 km from the Kriens junction. Greenery all around and perfect picturesque feeling. Clean, spacious, bright rooms, ventilated, well maintained bath and toilets. Complementary fruits for guests, free computer surfing at 1st floor. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice breakfast. The restaurant is closed in the evening on Mondays. Hotel... More

We stayed here for a night recently, and found it to be a very nice hotel. The room had been recently redone, and had been done very nicely. The staff were fantastic, and really helped to make a nice hotel really stand out, and the food was very good as well. We are hoping to go back soon.

Just outside of Lucerne in a place called Kriens you will find Sonnenburg Hotel. It sits alone in a quite location up in the hills overlooking Lucerne and Lake Lucerne. Nothing fancy about the place. All the walls are white. The room was crisp and clean with hardwood floor. Looked like Ikea type furniture. The most outstanding and incredible feature... More

I was last in Lucerne 46 years ago. It was then a quiet little place. Now it is a big, noisy place. We opted to stay in Kriens--a town about 20 minutes away. The Sonnenberg is up a hill. It is very tranquil. They upgraded us to a junior suite that had a luxiorious bathroom. I think this would be... More

We returned this year - our family took 3 rooms this time - and enjoyed the service, food and views. The rooms are basic and the building lacks an elevator. It is clean, quiet and the location cannot be beaten. Breakfast is excellent and plentiful. Free parking and wifi. The restaurant has great views and serves hearty food at fair... More

We stayed here for 1 night each time, as stop over on our summer holiday to Tuscany, Italy. Especially with the steady surge of the Swiss Franc versus the Euro, Switserland has become expensive and this hotel is not really an expection. Accepting higher than EU prices, it's a lovely place though; the location is superb, on a hill top... More

We stayed here a week, and had the greatest experience. This is a perfect place for families. We were in two rooms with two bathrooms, for a really reasonable price. Lucerne is so expensive, this was one of the best rates in the area. Very clean and modern rooms. The hotel could easily be reached by car or taxi (a... More

We stayed here one night mainly based on Trip Advisors rating and reviews. Believe me, you will be so pleased to experience the smaller but clean rooms, a wonderful restaurant with a superb staff and the dining room's vistas overlooking Lucern and the lakes. You will not be disappointed.
