“Diaster in Switzerland”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

We booked to go away for a "Wonderful Christmas" in Switzerland but our dreams were shattered on arrival at the Hotel. The Hotel Manager was arrogant and rude and the food was dispicable. The room had paint flaking from the celing, a cracked window and the bed was broken. The bathroom facilities were located in the room and we had no hot water for four days.

The bar and restaurant closed after the evening meal at approximatley 9.30, the manager expected us to walk in -7 degrees celcius to a pub that was not local for evening entertainment.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, it was supposed to be a special christmas away and we feel that we were robbed of our christmas.

Reviewed June 15, 2007

Einsiedeln is a pleasant small town that is the location of the historic and magnificent baroque Benedictine Abbey of St. Meinrad. This summer a sort of Passion Play will be performed in the Klosterplatz.

The Hotel Sonne is a modest but nice facility directly on the Klosterplatz, the great plaza in front of the abbey church. It is a 5 minute bus ride or 15 minute walk from the train station.

Our rooms with private baths were small but efficient and satisfactory. Our rooms faced the plaza. The staff is fluent in English and helpful. Fruhstuck was quite adequate.

  • Liked — Clean, quiet, efficient, convenient, no surprises.
  • Disliked — Nothing
