    Nice Hotel

    Great stay. Location is right next to the Alpine Panorama trail. The patio is fantastic for Apero. There were no mini ponies on site like in the photo. The staff was wonerful. I would recommend having a car because taking transit to the hotel is a little complicated, but still do-able.

    Sunrises and Sunsets to die for

    We had a great time. The main pros were: The breakfast is well worth the 15 CHF. We arrived after checkin times and the process was super easy. The room was large and clean and had a fantastic view of the lake. Sunrises and sunsets were beautiful. The dinner and music entertainers were also great, good atmosphere. For the cons (there aren’t many): It’s a bit difficult to get to if you plan to be out past 17:00, but we managed a taxi from the bus station (20CHF). The Sonnenberg bahn stops at 17:30, and the city bus also. The only way up past dinner is to walk or taxi. Other than that the only other complaint is due to the mixup for our room. But this is more a issue. Their description shows a balcony but there is no balcony with the room option they have. We arrived thinking we had a balcony but we did not (even though our reservation showed one). They do have balcony rooms, just not the one that was available on apparently. Nevertheless, we had an amazing stay and would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend.

    The view was spectacular. The room had a little balcony with chairs so you could relax outside. The staff was superb and the food was wonderful. The cost was perfect!

    Memorably Good

    We had a wonderful, memorable stay at the Sonnenburg. Friendly and helpful staff. Superb food, and commanding view of the region. We took the number 1 bus to the quaint funicular up the mountain. Lots of fun. Local venison was just a part of the exquisite cuisine. Quiet spacious room with views and a great bed. Just what we needed to recover from jet lag.

  • 8.0.Very good

    We stayed in a balcony room with a view since it seemed slower and it was marvelous. It was nice to stay out of the luzern fray but it does take some effort and time to get back and forth from town so be prepared for some walking. Restaurant is pricey but comparable to other places in town and my vegetarian platter was delicious and big enough for both of us.the view and quiet makes it all worth it

    I liked to be able to get to the hotel off the bus route and take the tram up to the hotel, I don’t like when it closes at 5:30 then it costs 23 pounds from the bottom of the hill the first time 18 the second and 20 to the train from the taxi the hotel recommended

    Spectacular Mountain View overlooking lake Lucerne and facing Mt Pilatus. Terrace Restaurantnis wonderful! Drive up narrow road to the top. But worth the climb!
