The picture of this hotel is deceiving. The views are amazing but there are a couple of pylons in the way. When we checked in we asked to be upgraded to a room with a bathroom, we paid quite a bit extra for this facility and it wasn't really worth it. We were in room 28, it had a lovely... More

This hotel is wonderful! In a stunning location above Lucerne and its lake, wherever you look you see mountains, rivers, lakes. The hotel is elegant in its simplicity. I had a small single room on the second floor (no lift) and shared a bathroom and lavatory on the same floor. Everything was perfectly clean and well cared for, full of... More

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
