The hotel, standing high above Kriens, combines very smart rooms with balconies offering beautiful views over towards the mountains and Lake Luzern, as does the restaurant and outdoor patio area. The restaurant delivered a very good, though expensive, meal. We plan to return on another occasion.

So my wife slept with my five month old daughter and I slept with my ten years old son. As a hollyday trip with my family, this ruined a little bit the mood.... More

We had a horrible two night stay in this hostel (l would not call it a hotel). Firstly, it gives it's address as Lake of Lucerne, which is totally misleading as it is up a steep hill in a town nowhere near the lake. We arrived on a Monday at 6pm to find a deserted place...turns out reception closed at... More

This hotel isn't located in the heart of Luzern (10 minute drive), but the location is well worth the distance. You have a beautiful view of the mountains, Luzern and the lake. It's also a starting point for many hikes. Breakfast was very good, also because it was served on the terrace with that wonderful view. We shared a bathroom/toilet... More

The room was clean, big, with balcony, massive bathroom and... Jacuzzi! The staff was helpful and friendly, a credit to the hotel. The breakfast was good too (bread, croissants, cereals, fruit, cheese, ham, eggs...) - Amazing location, quiet and relaxing, with a family of little ponies, cute! Also a few nice walks around, beautiful forest! Highly recommended ⭐️

A very good and clean hotel with breathtaking views. Inexpensive by Swiss standard. Share of bathroom facilities may pose a problem with some people. Used it many times on my way to Italy. It's good starting point for trekking, walking around Lucern.

I can't say anything about the hotel as we were just there for dinner. The food is absolutly delicious. The stuff is friendly and the panoramic view just stunning! All the products used are very local, some of the meet comes from the farm next door. The menucard does not offer a whole lot of dishes but therefor everything is... More

We visited the Sonnenberg Hotel in May 2016. The room was VERY VERY small but clean. There is no room to put a second suitcase even though we paid for 2 people.

Dear Kerri P. Thank you for your review. As i already explained to your colleague after Check-In, you booked a double-room with shared shower/bathroom. This is written in bold Letters on your Booking-Site, so on the reservation confirmation. Although our hotel was fully booked, there was no upgrade to a room with shower/toilet in the room possible. It is sad... More

if you're lucky to have a clean day, this is the place to be. Very nice view. Playground for childrens, nice walks for elderly and couples, close to the city but away from the noise and traffic of the town. Restaurant is good.
