“Unique, colorful, interesting place to stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

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.

Great location in the centre of town. We booked a Prinzeregent Room with Air Conditioning and assisted room ventilation (do not book a room without A/C in summer). Our room faced the Main Street, which could be noisy until midnight, especially on Friday and Saturday, but the rooms have electric privacy shutters so not a big problem. The hotel has limited underground parking. Make sure you definitely reserve your space in advance. Parking at the hotel is a big advantage. To enter the parking garage you must have your room key, so check-in first and then park. Breakfast is excellent and includes a glass of sparkling wine. We stayed for 5 nights and tried the restaurants recommended on review web sites, but the best was the hotel's own restaurant called Maximilian. All the staff were very helpful and friendly and go out of their way to make your stay a success. The rooms are a good size, clean and comfortable. There is no tea and coffee making in the rooms, which is a detrimental point, but our favourite cafe for afternoon tea is just opposite called Sisi. The rail station, bus stops and bike hire are near by. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We stayed at Prinzeregent room.

We could only stay 1 night here. It was part of our 3 night stopover in the area before heading on to S. Africa.

I loved the location of the hotel. Could easily walk to anywhere. We had a room with the Fussen Castle view which had a small terrace with a table and chairs. Thoroughly enjoyed the room which was a great size and the view of the castle lit up at night was beautiful.

Breakfast was wonderful. A large selection.

We had a rental car so we opted to reserve a space in the underground garage. Worth the $ I think because the lot at the hotel was very full and a lot of people walk through the area at all times of night and day. Just that little extra security for the rental car gave us some peace of mind.

I would stay here again - no question.

Room Tip: The room with the castle view is wonderful!

On arrival, check in was friendly and efficient. Room extremely comfortable, excellent bathroom and balcony area so able to sit outside (shame it rained during our stay!). Very good breakfast buffet, hot and cold choices, anything you could possibly want. Underground secure car parking is also a bonus. Had no problems finding a space and you can reserve one before you arrive. Would have been good to have tea/ coffee making facilities in room. Would highly recommend staying here and Fussen is a very nice town to explore with lots to see and do on the doorstep. Would definitely return!

Room Tip: Hotel is on a busy street so perhaps rooms at the front could be noisy. We were at the back so no pr...

We requested a quiet room so were initially disappointed to find, firstly, that our room was not ready (even though it was well over check-in time) and that it was right next door to the Restaurant. We were then moved across the hall to a room next door to the lift which serviced the Restaurant where breakfast is served daily. We were then offered a lower grade room in a much quieter location in the Hotel. The receptionist was impatient and made us feel uncomfortable when we asked for a room change as he insisted we had been given an upgrade. After this initial hiccup, we had a nice stay. The Hotel is in an excellent location right in the centre of town and a stone's throw from the main train station. Although located on a very busy intersection, the double glazed windows meant the noise wasn't a problem.

Room Tip: Asking for a quiet room does not necessarily guarantee one, but if you ask for a change once you che...

Excellent location, excellent decor, excellent ambience, excellent breakfast, excellent people.
Highly recommend it if you are planning to go to visit Neuschwanstein. Wish we had stayed longer. Rooms were good with modern amenities.

Stayed here to do castles and lakes. When driving to hotel its not immediately obvious where the hotel is. It's almost impossible to pull up outside hotel as it's on busy crossroads. More signage near underground barrier required. We sat outside every night and found it very enjoyable apart from a huge amount of flies. Maybe some repellent measures required. Other than that excellent. Sort out those two issues and it's five stars from me. Noticed other guests complaining about lack of air conditioning. May have valid points.
