We spent 3 nights at the Sonne this month, a fine base for visiting Fussen, Neuschwanstein and the greater area, especially for those traveling by train (it's located about 2 minutes' walk from the station). The positives at the Sonne include its bright, unique, decor, marrying Bavarian history and character with Gaudi-like modern design; it's cleanliness; a fine bar and restaurant; a vast and delicious breakfast; its location (as mentioned above); and the very friendly, helpful staff. The negative? Well, just one, really: the design falls short of uniting form and function, and instead often sacrifices functionality, with very small rooms, tight bathrooms (toilet pinned against wall, sink comes to far from the wall to open the door all the way, the large window strikes the ceiling lamp when opened all the way...those sorts of things). And while the breakfast buffet is enormous, much of the hot food is rather bland in taste. And rooms on the town's pedestrian street encounter great noise each morning with the loudest, most involved garbage collection service in the civilized world. BUT would we stay here again? YES, absolutely we would, given the important and considerable strengths noted above. But we'd ask for a room not fronting the town center, and probably pay a bit more for a larger room. Comfortable, warm, welcoming. Over-the-top design concept that falls just a little short of excellent, but ultimately does hit a fine mark.
