“Unique and friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

I have stayed at the hotel several times but hadn't been for a few years until I visited again in March this year. The hotel has always been one of my favourites but since the make-over and revamp that took place in the last year or so it is even more amazing. The interior decor is beautiful, the surrounding scenery is breath taking and the tranquility of the place is heaven. I love the way the suites have been so tastefully furnished. Mr & Mrs Real Snr are the most delightful of hosts and Mr Hubertus Real Jnr is an oustanding chef. The food is unique in my view. Quality is uncompromised and presentation is intriguing. The sorbet platter is to die for!! I would recommend this hotel without hesitation for anyone who is spending a few days in Vaduz. The Prince of Liechtenstein's castle is just a short walk from the hotel and if you have a chance to do this in springtime it is a beautiful experience.

Room Tip: The rooms on the lower floor are all individually decorated in a different style. Each is unique.

My wife and I recently stayed here and enjoyed a beautiful room , a magnificent view of the town and mountains, and excellent breakfast and dinners. At the time we were here, there was a music festival with local bands, a military band and school bands which we enjoyed tremendously. We highly recommend Parkhotel Sonnenhof - a great hotel in a beautiful city with friendly people.

Room Tip: Book a room with mountain views and balcony to enjoy!

This hotel is located at the top of the hill overlooking Vaduz and basically a long way from anything. Although the walk down to Vaduz is ok it is a killer coming back up the very steep hill and to be honest we were disappointed in Vaduz. There is not much to do, the restaurants are not very good unless you want pizza every night and it is very, very expensive. Not what we were expecting so this started our trip off on the wrong foot!

So we thought we would have to settle for eating at the hotel until we saw the cost. €150 for two people for two courses before wine! That is too much even for Michelin stars. Especially as our suite cost €500 per night. We stayed at a Schloss in Germany which had the same rating and had a lovely meal at a more affordable rate.

Our suite was very nice but no air con (apparently it is not allowed in Liechtenstein ) and a noisy fan was provided but you could not sleep with it on. So it was unbearably hot.

The view from the balcony is stunning as you can see all over the mountains. There was just not enough variety of options for us. Not really the hotels fault but the prices we paid to stay there were just extortionately high and I cannot assess this as good value hence my average rating.

Another example: weeds on the balcony! Not what we expect when we pay so much money.

The hotel does have two ebikes (Flyers) which you can hire and we did do this one day as we had run out of options of things to do. However as enjoyable as these were, again, extortionate prices at €50 per day per bike!

A couple of the staff were very nice but the rest did not seem too bothered about us. In particular the girls serving in the restaurant at breakfast were poor. You had to go and look for them to get drinks, eggs etc! The breakfast buffet was not outstanding - we had a lot better in other places at half the price or less. Twice at reception I had to queue, again not good when you pay so much.

All in all we expected so much more from Vaduz. This tarnished our time at Sonnenhof but my examples of poor service and over pricing are why I have assessed this place as average overall. What a shame. We left feeling we had been ripped off a bit. We won't be back.

This hotel is a little gem in the middle of Europe. The service was impecable. It felt like staying at a home with the services of a five star hotel. The food was amazing. The restaurant has one Michelin Star. It is what a Relais Chateaux should be....courtesy, charming, character, cuisine, calm!!! Perfect for exploring the region.

Room Tip: Liechtenstein is a country that really has no tourist attractions but it is quite close to Switzerla...

When you know where you are going, it is no more than a 10 minute walk from the hotel down to the centre of Vaduz and a little longer back up to the hotel. However, my first attempt took rather longer. A wander around the town got me nowhere so armed with a map and directions from the Tourist Information Office I tried again. The directions weren't good so it took a sweaty 30 minutes to find the hotel. A friendly greeting and a bottle of water on arrival helped improve my mood. My room had a lovely view of the castle, valley and town below from the small balcony. The room wasn't big and the bathroom was small, a shower but no bath. Most of the room facilities I expected were present, including a room safe, fridge/mini bar, robe and slippers, television with a wide range of channels in different languages, including English channels and in room wi-fi. Missing were: tea and coffee making facilities, an alarm clock and information about the hotel and surrounding area (except for a little spa information). No air-con as it's not permitted in hotel rooms in Liechtenstein apparently. There was a much needed fan and the balcony door could be set on window mode. There were newspapers, water, fresh fruit, information leaflets and a computer terminal in reception and hot water and a variety of teas by the very nice, if very warm, indoor pool/sauna area. Staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good with a range of fresh breads, pastries, juices, fresh and dried fruit, cereals, yoghurts, meats, cheeses etc. Good coffee and eggs, bacon and ham cooked to order. Each morning there was a note on each breakfast table with the day's weather forecast and an excursion suggestion. The hotel was extremely quiet and set in very well maintained grounds. During my stay the majority of the other guests were couples.

There is not much to say. It's a perfect hotel, quiet and with large rooms. The restaurant is very good, breakfast also very good. There is a pool, a nice park and people are very friendly.
Ok, there is no ac in the room (because they are illegal in Liechtenstein) but a fan.

Room Tip: take a 4X room if you want a terrace; 5X rooms give you a balcony.
