“A great family hotel in the Black Forest. Good food & Wine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

We stayed here two nights and cannot find fault. The Staff and proprietor could not do enough to help, but are restrained and natural, exactly what one would require. Parking is two steps from the hotel, a free parking permit is provided. The room was fine for the reasonable price with no complaints. The restaurant is extremely fine and we discovered several wonderful local wines (I lecture on the subject of wine) after which we visited the producers to buy wine to take home.The waitresses were extremely helpful, despite our very poor German. The buffet breakfast will satisfy any reasonable appetite with quality and variety. We visited the Freiburg market next to the Cathedral on Saturday morning, wonderful range of food, flowers and crafts, Of course, the surrounding Black Forest is wonderful and this comfortable hotel makes a superb base for touring (a free Konus bus/train card is available)
I recommend it without hesitation and intend to return in the future.

We decided to have our holiday in this part of Germany having visited Freiburg on a day trip from France some years ago. We chose the Sonne as it was a little out of the city and yet had all the amenities in the town.

It is close to the train station which is connected to Freiburg every half hour and takes about 15 minutes. the hotel has the use of the town car park and the reception will give you a pass so you don't have to pay the meter. The road to Kirchzarten is a continuation of the access to Freiburg from the motorway - straight through and through two tunnels to clear the suburbs.

The hotel is very comfortable and we had a balcony overlooking the street. The bedroom was ample for our requirements although the toilet/shower room a little small. There is a large shower room on the landing. The TV has several channels. We found the pillows too soft so asked for more.

One word of warning, the local church tolls 06oohrs like the town is on fire! We got used to it after a few days, but the locals - who don't seem to have alarm clocks - all arise and start their daily business. It goes from nighttime quite to daytime noise in minutes as cars, vans, motorcycles suddenly burst out into the streets on the summons of the bell. Kirchzarten will oversleep if the Pastor does!

Breakfast is buffet and there is a very large selection of cold meats, cheeses, fruits & juices, cereals and breads to choose from. Eggs are scrambled or fried and also come boiled.

We had dinner on a few occasions too. The chef uses local produce and local dishes are a specialty.... and very tasty.

There is a spa on site and although we didn't use all the facilities the saunas were very relaxing after a hard days touring.

The Hotel is family run and staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient.

This is an excellent hotel for visiting the southern Black Forest. The local authorities give free train and bus travel all over the Black Forest with a Konus Card which the hotel will give you. this card also gives discounts in several attractions in the region. We did use the trains but not the buses. The bus network appears to very comprehensive and services seem to be frequent so I guess that with a little planning, we could have parked the car up and just used the Konus Card to get to most of the places we did visit.

We stayed at this hotel on our way to Italy, and it's a very pretty hotel.
The restaurant serves good food at reasonable prices and is good value for money.
One can sit and eat outside, which is wonderful.
The rooms are all recently refurbished and tastefully done.
The service is good, and the prices are good value for money.

On a recent business trip I was booked into this hotel by my client.
I had previously seen the hotel details when planning the trip, and felt very comfortable with myself being booked into the Sonne.
When we arrived it was dark and very snowy. As there is limited parking in front of the hotel, the car was parked around the corner, but on enquiring with reception about parking they greatfully moved their vehicle so that I could park in front.
I had been allocated a single room that was extremelly clean and very modern throughout, Flat Screen TV, iPhone docking station and minibar. The bathroom was also very modern & clean.
The only one thing that i would suggest is that if you are used to sleeping on firm pillows, ask for more, as there is only one on the bed and this is so soft that it offers no support.
The restaurant has a limited menu, this however does not affect the quality of the food that was excellent.
Breakfast is a simple affair of cereals, yogurt, fruit, bread, cheese, meat and eggs washed down with fruit juice and tea or coffee.
The hotel is situated in the centre of Kirchzarten in the south of The Black Forest and is flanked by mountains. I only stayed one night, but found the people to be very friendly and there is a great cycling infrastructure.

One day I would love to return on a longer visit for pleasure and experiance the whole surrondings.

We booked a standard room for one nigth for the price of €95, including breakfast. The given room was small and the bathroom was even smaller. There was a crack in the sink, the shower doors do not close properly, a lamp above the bed was not working. Breakfast was good, but personnel could be a bit more attentative though. The lady seemed to forget the wish for coffee or tea, which resulted in some people leaving the table without any, others had to remind her.

In my view this room did not justify the price. Upon checking out I gave my comments which resulted in a small discount and the explanation that some rooms will be refurbished later this year.

Hotel Sonne breathes everything that once was, it is a bit of faded glory. Although their website looks nice, the hotel has some serious work to do on both facilities and service levels.

As my daughter is about to study in Freiburg,and was looking for place to sleep,booking.com had this hotel as a final one avilliable in the area and it's souraunding.
It is only 10 Km From Freiburg about 10 to 15 min by bus or 5 to 7 min by train ,the ticket is about 3.5 Euro
Room was nice and as requested,the room was with two separate beds,we arrived and received the Konus card which enabled us to move freely from Basel SBB til Karlsruhe
The hotel is in a very good location,have a Fitness Center and Massage in House against extra fees,the room is quite,the food is very tasty,and above all the staff ,they are very friendly and kind to every one.
Because of this hotel,and it's location I am going to get an apartment for her ,as this part of Germany still have the friendly side.
I will ask any one going to Freiburg,not to miss this small village,and this hotel with its service.

Room Tip: Ask fo comfort rooms,they are big and nice. Avoid the front rooms of the hotel as it is allways ful...

My wife and I spent three nights here in August 2012 while on a two week driving holiday in the Balck Forest. It was our third hotel. We used it as a base to visit the Titisee (on the way from our second stopover), Freiburg and Todtnau.

On arrival the staff were very helpful, most of them speaking excellent English, so we did not have to struggle with our limited German. Our room and en-suite were both rather small, but everything was very clean, and we ahd a small balcony overlooking a square.

We were given a pass to park the car free of charge on a car park next to the hotel. We were given a konus card on arrival and made use of it to travel free of charge to Freiburg by train and to Todtnau by bus while in Kirchzarten.

Breakfast was the usual continental fare of juices, cereals, fruits, yoghurts, cheeses, cooked meats, breads and coffee, all of a high quality. We ate in the restaurant (actually outside) on the first evening and the meal was excellent. On the other two evenings we ate at a very popuklar restaurant near the town centre.

Overall a pleasant stay.
