Reviewed August 20, 2013

We stayed 1 night in Hotel Sonne in Fussen.

The hotel is located in the city centre and proposes parking places (charged). From the hotel, you easily access the castle area, the monastery, the pedestrian streets, etc.

Check-in & check-out went smoothly. Staff is customer focused, polite and smiling.

Room was nice with a modern design, good equipment and a balcony. Safe was large enough for a laptop. Bed and pillows were good, maybe the bed was a bit too soft. Bathroom was small but very functional. Amenities were of good quality (good body wash and shampoo, except: no toothbrush). The hotel is calm despite the restaurant on ground floor and outside.

Breakfast is excellent. Service there is excellent.

Sauna on 4th floor is nice.

Wifi is available in room (not charged).

A very good stay on the whole.

We suggest to arrive in the hotel at around 3/4pm, and to visit the city. Then to visit the castles of Ludwig the day after. We suggest also to book your visits of castles through the hotel (more expensive but easier & safer).

The accommodations at this boutique hotel impressed even our teenage sons. Beautiful rooms, fantastic location, and a top-notch breakfast. The only disappointing thing about this hotel was that we only stayed there one night!

We were planning on visits to the Bavarian castles and couldn't get rooms in Hohenschwangau so we decided to stay in Fussen. What a great decision it was! The Hotel Sonne is located in the heart of the quaint town of Fussen. The rooms were charmingly Bavarian and the staff was went above and beyond to make us happy. There were 6 of us in 2 rooms and we were all very comfortable. Additionally, my family LOVED the breakfast. And with 3 teenage boys, you can imagine the quantity of food they consumed and enjoyed! I hope to get back to this beautiful hotel in the German Alps!!

We went to Füssen to visit King Ludwig's castles and see other attractions. The hotel is smack in the city center. Rooms were adequate (#421 and 422, the only two rooms in the fourth floor) but well appointed and air conditioned. No balconies though.

Pros: Great location, thorough cleanliness, staff friendliness, excellent breakfast. Open parking and covered garage (reservation is needed for garage).

Cons: First time driving into hotel's parking lot is very difficult. You need to check in first, so your room key will open the barrier. However, at first arrival how and where do you stop and check in first? It was frustrating and this is the only reason why I did not rate it "excellent".

Tip: The friendly hotel staff can arrange ticket reservations to the castles and many more which makes life easier. Just ask. They are very eager to help.

Room Tip: Avoid the top (fourth) floor rooms if you do not like steeply sloping ceilings in the "attic&qu...

Fussen is the perfect base to visit Ludwig's castles, Bavaria & the Zugspitz.. Our room (#322) at the Hotel Sonne was quite large, with ample storage, a full length mirror, a large bathroom, air conditioner, a desk & sitting area. The room was very clean with king size bed, nice towels, a full bath tub and separate shower, good lighting and sink. Our room faced the street but was very quiet. The hotel had a top notch breakfast that included hot items, yogurt, cheeses, pastries, breads, fresh fruit, and a wide variety of beverages including champagne. The staff was quite helpful. The hotel is well located in the center of Fussen with a grocery store and a ATM just across the street. Fussen is a lovely town and well worth a visit on its own. We stayed 5 nights.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 3rd floor and faced the street. We heard virtually no noise from the hall or th...

We stayed in Hotel Sonne for 2 nights for our driving trip in Germany. Hotel Sonne is located at the city centre of Fussen. The room is renovated in a fashionable way. Though the room is not air-conditioned, there is a good fan. The room is clean, comfortable and convenient. The hotel staff are all friendly and helpful.

At the first night we drove in, we parked our car at the open parking space of the hotel. At the second night, the open space were used for function. The hotel provided us a ticket to park our car at the car park nearby.

The hotel breakfast was really good and served with ham and smoked salmon. There were also a wide range of tea for selection. Needless to say there are a lot of different cold cuts, bread and fruit. Orange juice was fresh and you could see the machine cut the orange and sequence the juice for you.

The hotel provided a washing machine to hotel guests to use for free. There was also a TV located at washing machine room so that you can watch TV during washing time. Free wi-fi was also available everywhere and connections were good.

Highly recommended.

This hotel is centrally located, a short block from the train station and he bus stop where you catch the bus to the castles. The service was outstanding. The room was clean and generally comfortable. However, if you are staying in the summer, please note that not all rooms are air conditioned. If you know that it will be hot, I would recommend paying extra for the air conditioning.

One other thing to take note of: when you check in, they give you a coupon for a "free aperitif" at their restaurant if you eat dinner there. I did this, and ordered a drink from the "aperitif" section of the menu. It turns out the coupon is only good for a prosecco, which is not even in the aperitif section.
