The hotel is located close to the train station, close to the center and also well located to the Titlis station. Rooms are large and clean, shower pressure great. If you don’t like using the all purpose shower gel on your hair, bring your own. But the best thing about this hotel is the friendly service. Super nice staff always ready to help. Breakfast is excellent.

We stayed at Hotel Sonnvendhof in Engelberg a couple of nights in Mars and it was such a nice experience. So welcoming and warm, the staff really took care of everybody. It is small with a little breakfast restaurant and some rooms. Location close to town, railway station and slopes. The hospitality was top class and we absolutely can come back.

It was a perfect stay. Staff is very friendly, caring and everything is very well organized. We really felt very welcomed. Every little detail was considered and we loved the handwritten welcome messages in the room, which was spacious and comfortable with great view to the mountains. The breakfast was really tasty, with local and homemade products. Also the location is excellent, between the train station and Titlis cable car.. We are definitely staying there again.

We came to Engelberg to visit Mount Titlis. From the second we walked in the door we made to feel welcome. The hotel is adjacent to the train station and within sight of the lift to get to Mount Titlis. The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was sufficient. We appreciated the welcome message card and notes on the mirror. When it came time for dinner suggestions, they recommended a place that was probably the best of our trip. Thank you.

Engelberg is a beautiful place and this hotel is very conveniently situated between the railway terminus and the Titlis cable car and funicular station. The staff, most of whom are women, seemed very happy, friendly people, only too willing to be helpful. There was a good choice of things for breakfast - muesli, fruit salad, eggs, bacon, cheese, cold meats, breads and croissants. The bed and room were comfortable with a view of the mountains, the station and the kindergarten next door. I loved the beautiful photographs of the area which decorated the rooms and public spaces. There was even a play room for little people. And wow, what fast internet!!

This hotel is two minutes walk from the train station and six minuted walk from the ski lifts! however, its true value and charm lies with their wonderful, attentive and super-friendly staff. nothing was ever too much trouble and the small things that guys probably never notice were highly appreciated; hand-written welcome notes and menus, and a great breakfast!

Great hotel for a skiing holiday. It’s close to both the main ski lift and the main restaurant/shopping area in Engelberg. The room was comfortable, the staff were very friendly, and the breakfast was tasty. We would definitely stay here again if we returned to Engelberg
