Hotel Restaurant Sonne
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Gengenbach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Thanks to my fellow tripadvisor travelers for the reviews of Hotel Sonne. We spent one night here 1.5 weeks ago in room #2 (which, coincidentally turned out to be the "showcase" room as it's the room shown in the Gengenbach tourist info guide for the hotel!). Loved the hotel, location, and breakfast. We arrived about 1500 and didn't have any problems getting access to the hotel and room (we arrived on a Friday). Up two flights of stairs was our gem of a room. The room is large, clean, comfortable, and comes with wonderful views of the town's markt platz. And lucky for us this time of year, there were storks on the rooftop across from us. How cool is that?! My only criticism, if it can be called that, is like so many older German hotels, it's still got the '70s brown color scheme in the bathroom. Clean and large enough -- just brown. Breakfast in the morning was very good and surprisingly, we were able to have cappuccinos instead of just the normal coffee. If we return to the Gengenbach area, there's no doubt we'd stayed at Sonne again.

Room Tip: Get a view overlooking the markt platz.

We have just returned from a 6 night stay at the Sonne. Our room was large and clean, with a comfortable sitting area. The restaurant serves wonderful meals at good prices (the half-board option is particularly good value). The hotel is centrally situated and is handy for the station for day trips (ask for a Konus card to get free train and bus travel in the Black Forest). We would definately stay here again.

We booked the Hotel Sonne for one night as we had extended our stay in Gengenbach and the Hotel we booked did not have a vacancy for this one night. We were arriving on a Wednesday and we were told in our email that the restaurant closed at 3:00pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays. No big deal, we didn't have to eat there and the website said the Hotel would still be open. We had planned on being there before 3:00 anyway. Between our flight being delayed 2 hours and all the trains being late, needless to say we didn't arrive before 3:00pm. When we got to the Hotel the front door was locked, it was about 5:30 pm. After a bit of worrying about not having a place to stay, we went next door to a merchant and asked them if they had any idea how to get into the Hotel. Luckily, she directed us down the alley to the residence of the owner and we rung the bell and she came down and took us around to our room. The room was decent and it was quiet. Breakfast was good. Would have liked some notice about the Hotel being closed, not just the restaurant, kind of put a damper on our arrival. I would still recommend a stay as it is clean, comfortable and priced right but be aware if you arrive after 3:00 on Wed or Thurs you have to walk around to the side.

You can't beat the location of the Sonne - right in the middle of old-town Gengenbach. Though the rooms and the hallways were somewhat characterless, everything was extremely clean and the staff were friendly. The most atmospheric part of the hotel is the downstairs restaurant, which serves a tasty breakfast and seemed to be a popular dinner place as well. For an ideally-situated hotel at a reasonable price, I highly recommend the Sonne.
