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

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

We stayed for two nights with two children and a friend. The booking process was very efficient and helpful. All questions answered. Being familiar with staying in youth hostels, we found the price awesome (for Switzerland), service excellent, and the food was very very good - surpassing all expectations. The hosts are wonderfully welcoming, and the place was also extremely... More
