We stayed in Room 6 and did various treks and hikes around the region. The owners were very friendly and quick to take care of our needs. Pension Sonnenberg, as the name suggests, is actually hiding up the trails at Sonnenberg. The walk (uphill for about 20-30 minutes from the Murren [Stechelberg] cable car station / or downhill for about... More

The expression buyer beware comes to mind regarding our attempt to stay at the Pension Sonnenberg hotel. After driving about 45 minutes through a rock tunnel (very cool) and around hair pin turns, we turned back to the main road. We were immediately told by a couple who were walking in the high mountain road that "you can't drive to... More

It's quite the walk to this lodge but it is well worth it. Pack light, get some exercise, and then relaxin paradise. The rooms are clean, the food is delicious, and you couldn't get a better view anywhere on earth. Be aware you have to take a cable car to get there and then walk straight up hill on a... More

We stayed at the hotel during a trek in the region and used the dormitories. The staff was friendly and the dinner was very good. When we called to reserve they even advised us to arrive a day earlier due to a noisy party that was supposed to take place in their back yard. Recommended for trekkers.

Had a conversation with Linda about staying in the dormitory room - very helpful and couldn't ask for more assistance. Tempted to go and watch the Inferno for a few days. Sounds like a great location :-)

Sonnenberg (Sun Mountain) chalet/restaurant can not be topped for the food, hospitality, million dollar views of the Alps, food, sun terrace, lodging and did I mention the food! I lived in the town of Murren, just a bit down the ski slope, for 1 year from 2002/2003. During that period the Sonnenberg was my favorite haunt. Steve is a awesome... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The Pension is run by Steve and his wife Monika. They are very friendly and make you feel right at home. Steve takes the time to talk to you and share interesting stories about the area and his adventures in Switzerland. He is also a great... More

Service was great - a personal welcome the moment we walked in the door, shown immediately to our room, then left in peace to settle and come back down in our own time. Nothing was a problem, staff were available from early in the morning until late at night. The room was lovely (instead of a family room, we were... More
