I stopped at the Best Western as a layover after driving the Grossglockner High Alpine road, before continuing to Innsbruck for the rest of the vacation. The hotel is in a prime location, in the middle of Lienz and walking distance to most of the city. The rooms themselves were nice, and the breakfast was decent but not amazing. Both... More

I visited Lienz for 8 days, as part of a hiking holiday . East tyrol is excellent for hikers, but I was especially pleased by friendly & helpful welcome I received in Hotel Sonne. Room was in good position, quiet ( only noise at night was from the river) with superb view of the Isel valley. Breakfast typical of Austria... More

I visited this hotel with my father in the end of June 2013. The initial reason why we had chosen this hotel was that they give you possibility to fish on their own parts of the rivers. We were satisfied - the hotel was nice and clean, the food was good and all the staff was very nice and helpful.... More

The hotel,is in a great location in the centre of the town. Very easy to walk to local attractions such as the castle or cable car. Basic but clean rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Meas were also very good. Underground garage, which was ideal for parking our motorcycles. Recommended. Visited September 2012.

A great long weekend at the end of October in hotel Sonne in Lienz. Very comfy rooms with a lot of "extra" space not to mention the staff which was there for us all the way. We spent most of the time out fishing in the variety of rivers and streams in the area. There are over 70 km of... More

We spent a night here as a stop on a long trip. We asked for a room in another Lienz hotel which was overbooked, and the owner called up at the Sonne to help us out. The owner answered the phone at a very late hour and said we could come. There were a lot of guests but everything was... More
