A small cozy hotel just right beside the lake. Wonderful view from a room and great service minded personnel, not so far from city centre. Much better than a lot of hotels in city where you don't get any value for the amount that you have payed for!
Really appreciated a lot!

It is a very good option to budget-conscious travellers intended to stay in Zurich - accessible from the airport in 30 minutes, and from Zurich's main station in 12 minutes (direct connection). All the ammenities are very good, the breakfast is served in the main restaurant with lake view, the spa and the gym are very good. Dinning in the restaurant is an amazing experience, due to the environment as well as the food. In a warm nigh, it is possible to dinner looking to the lake, which may be a very romantic experience.

I have seen this wonderful hotel referred to as suitable for "budget" travellers. God knows what their budget was!..our large, well appointed room with the MOST comfortable beds I have ever encountered in a hotel but without a lake view was listed as 400 Swiss Francs a night!. BUT I have no complaints. The hotel is delightful and the food- we had dinner one night in the delightful, wooden-panelled Burestube - was just superb - as it should be for such high prices, though I guess they are normal for the well-heeled Swiss! The staff could not have been more helpful in every respect and the location is excellent, away from the rush of Zurich and right by the lakeside and an embarkment point for boats. Lovely exterior terrace restaurant for summer, a bar that allows smoking (we didn't stay long!) and easy parking. One tiny complaint. The wardrobe in our room was the tiniest I have seen in any hotel room for a very long time. Stay again?...yes please!

Room Tip: Has to be a lake view..if you can afford it!

Thank you very much for your positive review. Regarding our rates please note that we do have daily rates which change with our occupancy. Usually Friday and Saturday nights during summer are more expensive. On Sundays you can have great deals for all those travellers who can organize their trip themselves. Comparing to four star superior hotels in Zürich downtown we have most of the time better deals...and! always including breakfast.

We held our wedding reception at the Romanitk Seehotel this past March. Our guests had traveled from Canada and from other parts of Europe to stay there as well, and they all enjoyed it! The rooms were great, the food was fantastic, with some authentic dishes on the menu to tickle your fancy.The view of Lake Zurich was special. The staff and service was amazing, and really made our event an evening to remember. The small and intimate bar lounge was an ideal spot to unwind after gallivanting around downtown Zurich.
Highly recommended

Many thanks for the great feedback. We do know that the wedding day is one of the most important days in a couple's life and therefore it is always our outmost goal to satisfy the whole party.

The Sonne is a charming hotel, well located near Zurich. We came for a bit of a weekend getaway but, having stayed in tiny, exorbitant, dated "5-star" hotel rooms in central Zurich, I would also recommend it for budget-conscious travellers intending to explore Zurich as it is a 2-minute walk to the train station and then only 12 minutes to Zurich's main station. The airport is also easily accessible (about 30 minutes), and there are boats plying the lake that can take you to Zurich or other destinations.
It seems from other reviews that all rooms are not created equal, but we were happy in the courtyard rooms 138/139-- nonsmoking, spacious with comfortable seating area, good storage. The only downside was the lack of a view but we were prepared to sacrifice that.
Our only gripe regarding the hotel in general would be that the front desk staff were not all equally helpful/friendly (most were, but not all).

Room Tip: 138/139 in the annexe building don't have a view but are modern, spacious and nonsmoking.

Many thanks for your very positive comments. In fact all our 40 rooms are different and it make most of our returning guest curious to explore all of them. The categorie lake, lake deluxe and
the juniors suites have an amazing view of Lake Zurich.
We do apologize for the front desk employee who was not very service minded to you....
