“Preferred Choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

Business travel has brought me to the Zurich area several times per year for the last 10 years and my preference for the hotel stay has always been the Sonne in Staefa. The hotel is conveniently located just a few blocks from the train station in Staefa, making it very easy to travel into Zurich. The Sonne is situated right on Lake Zurich, which allows for lovely views in the summer. The rooms are clean and comfortable, WiFi is included, and the restaurant is excellent. One of the main reasons I choose the Sonne is the people: the owners and staff have always been outstandingly friendly and accommodating.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

Beware: in winter the smoke rises from the basement bar into the rooms. In summer, the lakeside location and views are a total winner. Room servicing is a bit sloppy. Restaurant is absolutely excellent, and there is a Turkish restaurant nearby which is open on Sunday - everything else except the shops in Zurich station are shut.

Thank you for your review. We rebuilt the bar in the basement and since October 2014 our entire house is now smoke free.
