Nice little hotel in a great, central location and easy walking distance to the train station. Wi-Fi was very sketchy and hardly worked but there is a good coffee house in the alley adjoining the hotel that has very fast internet if you need it. Good hiking trails all around and a nice, clean park 5 minutes from Hotel Sonne.... More

We stayed one night on our way from Alsace to the Stuttgart area. The parking was a little tight in the 'basement' garage, but we managed! We loved seeing the storks on the rof of the house opposite - a 'speciality' in this part of Germany! We walked all over the town, and went out again after dark and enjoyed... More

I visited gengenback as it came recommended as part of blackforest exploration. Unfortunately, I spent only one night but I do intend to go back. the hotel staff are very nice. But I was quite confused when I first arrived and the hotel was closed and an international number was posted on the door to call. Then a nice hotel... More

Spent 3 nights in this lovely B&B, located smack in the center of this small quiet town/village in the lovely region of Blackforest. Just 1 station away from the larger city of Offenburg, The owners Silke and her husband (whose name I think was Christof) were excellent hosts and took great care of us. The Hotel rooms were standard and... More

I'd have rated them 5 stars had the hotel put us in a room in their main building (as I'd requested on my original e-mail request). I just wanted a view of the world's largest advent calendar from our room window. We were in room 31 in the annex around the corner from the main building. The room was perfectly... More

During mid September 2013 I stayed at the Hotel Restaurant Sonne in Gengenbach for three nights. Gengenbach is a small, medieval Black Forest town with wall towers and lots of half-timbered buildings. Saint Mary's Church and the Rathaus are beautiful attractions in the Marktplatz. Gengenbach is also located on a main rail line so it is very easy to travel... More

Initial impressions were not fantastic, as a woman who was clearly sick gave me my key and told me how to get to my room-but did not show me where it was (it was in another building!). However, I really liked this place. When I had problems with the WiFi the first night, one of the chefs (the owner or... More

Probably the best in Gengenbach. Ideal location nearby the city hall and 5 minutes away from the railway station(on foot). Don't forget to ask for the Konus Karte(we took the train to Baden Baden, Freiburg and Triberg free of charge.Extremely friendly and helpful staff. We took the 4 Gang überrachungsmenu which was really delicious. We spent 3 nights in the... More

Unfortunately we were a little disappointed in this hotel. The website promised more than it delivered as although the room was fine, the stairs and landings are very dark and very scary if the lights go out. We did not see any of the family or staff on arrival and had to let ourselves into the hotel. This was OK... More

This is a pleasant hotel, well positioned in a lovely friendly town. We had a room in the guest house slightly away from the hotel. The room was comfortable and quiet. Because we were not in the main hotel and only went in there for breakfast we felt a little isolated. There may be value in an English guide to... More
