“Go somewhere else if you can”
Reviewed August 27, 2006

This hotel is large, ugly and out-dated and does not deserve it's four star status. The prison block appearance is very offputting and unattractive. The buildings and decor are very dated. (Great if you like 70s and 80s style).Most facilities are old and tired. Don't be fooled by the website photos !
The pool is new but was very cold. The public rooms are fine and the restaurant was good, plenty of choice and the food was good quality . Drinks were very pricey but as captive cutomers there is no choice but to pay the prices charged. On the plus side everything was very clean and the hotel staff did their best to be helpful .I would return to Bad Kissingen but not this hotel. The area is worth exploring and there are lots of lovely cafes and resturants round about.Germany is beautiful but the Hotel Sonnenhugel is not.

the hotel is made up of big ugly concrete buildings (400 rooms), resembling more a multi story car park than a hotel. it is located high up on a hill, too far to walk into the town in the evening after dinner. the rooms are very clean but dated, dial telephones and push button tvs, bright orange 70s light shades, although efforts have been made to smarten up the rooms they are definately not 4 star quality. the walk up to dinner and breakfast every morning took us about 5 minutes from room to restaurant, if it was raining you had to go through the underground tunnel through the buildings to get to the main reception (quite creepy). The terrace was big, but bare and paint was peeling off the walls and ceilings, again the bright orange sun loungers dated from the 70s. The gardens around the hotel had no seating or loungers, you could only lounge around the outside pool (but you needed to go through the inside of the building, through the indoor pool to get to this area). the swimming pools were beautiful, but the water is so cold, not good for non active swimmers or children, the water is heated up to 29 degrees, which sounds a lot , but it isnt when you are in the water, and when you are sitting still in a jaccuzi. the restaurants were nice, breaksfast was great, dinner was nice too, although the starters could have been a little bit more varied, and the empty trays filled up quicker. the drinks at the bars were expensive, so if you didnt want to go into town you didnt really have a choice about paying the high prices. the animation team were good, and had different activities arranged if you wanted to take part. the staff in the hotel were very very friendly and did their utmost to help in any way they could.

  • Liked — the friendly staff who did their best to welcome you.
  • Disliked — the buildings which were not very well lit, and the old carpets in the hallways
  • Tips/Secrets — use another hotel - bad kissingen is so beautiful, and the concrete buildings just spoilt it for me

Stayed for 3 days for a conference there. Loved it. Thought it was the best stay so far. Reasonable rates and had excellent food. Also has a neat indoor wave pool! Highly recommend this place!

This hotel really was NOT worth visiting.

They claim to have very varied meals, but in fact we stayed 7 days and the buffet was allways the same (very little).

Also, the rooms are quite old and the garden is NOT maintained. There is a minigolf, but I don't think anyone will play golf there in the near future.
