We stayed for 3 nights in October 2020. We arrived on a Monday, unfortunately the restaurant was closed so we had to get in the car again to get dinner (after a long drive it was the last thing I felt like). The ponies were in their stable, the mini golf & train were not in operation while we were there (this was one of main reasons for booking Sonnenberg). The rooms are clean & functional, unfortunately you can hear your Neighbours pretty well through the walls. Otherwise good value & the staff were very helpful & pleasant.

it's a three-star hotel. But The hotel is clean... rooms are spacious ... staff is friendly... and the view is amazing. Nice small balcony for a nice cup of coffee in the morning or evening. Will be there again soon no doubt about it.

You will need a car or some sort of transportation to get to this hotel as it is located on top of the hill. There is public transportation, but it is slightly inconvenient. Particularly, if you want to go out into the city for the evening and stay out somewhat late and drink (and not drive, don't do it!), getting back will definitely require a taxi since public transportation will have stopped fairly early. Despite this, you will definitely appreciate the stunning view of the lakes and Swiss Alps from the room! このホテルはルツェルンの小高い山の上にあり、車が必要です。市内からタクシーだと結構料金がかかるらしいです。このホテルの特徴は、なんといっても部屋からの景色でしょうか。部屋からは美しい湖とスイスアルプスを眺めることができます。 One evening, we walked down the hill (about 10 min) and took a bus to get to the city center. The walking was fun and we enjoyed the view. We waited for a bus at the closest bus stop towards the foot of the hill and the wait was only 10 mins or so. From there, it took about 15 mins to get to Hauptbanhof, the central station of Luzern. 我々はレンタカーで訪れたのですが、市内でお酒を飲みたかったので、町へ食事に行く際は歩いて丘を下り、途中からバスを利用しました。歩いた時間は15分程度でしょうか。歩きながら美しい景色を堪能できるのであまり苦には感じませんした。バス停では10分ほど待ち、中央駅までは15分くらいだったと思います。 The hotel itself looked a bit old but the staff was quite nice and friendly as well as the housekeepers. We did not spend much time in the room but the view from the room is worth the money. We woke up with an amazing view of beautiful Luzern! Also I would like to mention that there was a handwritten welcome letter from the hotel staff in our room. It was such a nice thing to do! We also noticed play equipment for kids to use outside at the hotel, though we did not have any kids. ホテルの建物自体は少し古めかしいですが、スタッフやハウスキーパーの方もフレンドリーでよかったです。部屋にはウエルカムメッセージがおいてありましたが、それが手書きだったことに感動しました。敷地内には子供の遊戯設備のありますので、家族ずれにも良いホテルだと思います。 We did not eat at the hotel restaurant but the look of the restaurant was nice as the big windows were facing the lakes and the mountains. If we have a chance to come back to Luzern, we would love to try eating here! ホテルでは食事はとりませんでしたが、レストランは大きな窓で囲まれていて、とても景色がよかったです。もしまたルツェルンを訪問する機会があれば、このレストランで食べてみたいと思います。

When you eat at this place you feel like you are the Rich and Famous! The braised veal shank flambeed at the table with grilled vegetables was the best I ever had! Our waiter was first-rate!!!!! The view was beautiful.

We stayed here in September after travelling for a month. I specifically choose this hotel for the end of our trip to relax, sit back and enjoy this amazing hotel in the alps. It was better than I even imagined! My husband and I LOVED everything about this unique hotel. Where do I start... the road up to the hotel was so amazing.. the front desk staff were so friendly and always happy to answer any questions.... no elevator but we didn’t care... we had just come off a month long trip and averaging 15,000 steps a day... it did not bother us.... dinner was very good and impeccable service.... room was lovely and that view!!!! Wow!!! Beds were very comfortable and bathroom roomy and clean... breakfast was out of this world!... again, service impeccable.... we took the little cog ride (a few minutes walk from hotel) into Kiern then bused it into lucern... parking on site... but mainly what I will never forget is the ringing of the church bells and the cow bells from our window. That is a distant memory now as we are back home and back to the grind but wow, what a memory we have left and hundreds of pictures. A beautiful hotel and experience to end a fantastic 30 year anniversary trip!
