I stayed at the Hotel Sonnental for several nights while visiting a nearby research centre. I think that the Hotel Sonnental was perfect for this purpose. It was about a 15 minute walk to EMPA which is located nearby. The number 12 tram runs direct from the airport to a stop about 100m from the hotel. Therefore, getting from the airport to the Hotel Sonnental is incredibly easy. The same tram can be used to get from the hotel to a nearby rail station to catch trains into Zurich. Alternatively, the rail station is about a 15 minutes walk.
My room was on the second floor overlooking the parking lot located near the front entrance. The room was bright, clean and comfortable. There was a closet to hang my clothes, a desk and the bed. The bed was comfortable. Yes, as other reviewers have noted, the pillows are a bit slim, but I didnt mind. And there were two pillows on the bed so if I wanted a thicker pillow, I could combine them.
The hotel offers free wifi. I had no trouble getting a good signal from the router in the hall using either my laptop or my phone. However, others in my group complained that they had trouble connecting. However, this may have been due to the age of their laptop.
The breakfast buffet has a lot to offer and I was very satisfied with the selection. There options include cereals, rolls with spreads, meats and cheeses as well as beverages. The hotel restaurant also offers meals. I ate there one night and the price was reasonable and the food was good. Alternatively, there is a shop down the street at a petrol station if you would rather self cater. There are no other restaurants immediately near the hotel, but you will find some selection within a 15 minute walk.
The staff were efficient and checkin and checkout were easy.
Overall, I would not hesitate to stay at the Hotel Sonnental again when I visit the area.
