“Wonderful Stay!”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

We stayed at the Hotel Sonne for several days and were very happy with our choice. The hotel is filled with a myriad of artistic touches and the attention to detail in its architecture is impressive. However, what made the hotel truly outstanding is its staff. Everyone was very attentive, caring, and genuinely happy to accommodate. The breakfast buffet is amazing in its variety and quality. This was a memorable stay.

We didn't actually stay at the Hotel Sonne, but were visiting Fussen for 3 nights in early August.
We always thought the Germans loved a beer and was sure we'd find the town full of bierkellars !
They may be there, but we walked around and around and couldn't find a single one !
Fussen is certainly lacking any 'fun factor' !
However, we came across the terrace bar of the Hotel Sonne - very warm welcome from the friendly staff, excellent service, sensibly priced drinks and good gastropub food.
We ate / drank there for all 3 nights snuggled up under the great patio heaters, wrapped in warm blankets (provided by the Hotel) to keep out the cold (yes, it was August !).
We had a quick look around the hotel and it looks very nice ..... if it's as good as it's bar, then I should think it's a fine place to stay.

The Hotel Sonne is a lovely property located 2 blocks from the train station, an easy walk. The common areas of the hotel are decorated with costumes and other art pieces...really fun to check out. The buffet breakfast was huge, and delicious, and the rooms were spacious with large beds. We had drinks on their outdoor patio/restaurant, which was a great spot with excellent service. I would definitely choose this hotel again.

Room Tip: Upper floors have better views of the mountains and the city.

We only stayed here for one night the night before we toured Neuschwanstein.

Room - We had a triple room and it had a separate single bed for the 3 person. Room size was above average for European hotel. Bathroom was very spacious, brand new and clean, with lots of fluffy towels. It has a separate bathtub and standing shower.

Parking - We love the underground secured garage. You had to write an email and reserved a space in advance and it costs 8 EUR per night, but it was so worth it. There was pouring rain the night we arrived, we were able to drive straight into the underground garage, and wheel our luggage straight into the bedroom via taking an elevator.

Restaurant - We had one dinner and one breakfast there. Dinner was of average quality but breakfast was very good. Basically they offered everything you could think of in a breakfast buffet! It also seemed like every guest was up early to beat the crowd for touring the castles, but the breakfast staff could handle the volume of people just fine.

Front desk staff - Extremely helpful. We couldn't be happier with their directions and general sightseeing tips.

The only thing my husband didn't like about this hotel was the mannequins in the hallway. He said they were a little creepy to him :( But that't it! It's a great hotel - we couldn't imagine touring the castle as a day trip from Munich. Being 10 mins away allows you to beat the crowd if you reserve the first tour of the day.

Our family of four shared a large room with two queen beds, comfy and roomy enough for our two night stay. The included Breakfast was fantastic and my sons lived the fresh squeezed orange juice machine. The ladies at the front desk ( Mariana and Martina I believe their names were) are extremely helpful and welcoming. They helped us find a parking spot for our car, showed me how to use the free washer and dryer (they sell laundry soap for 1.50 euro ) and even reserved our group a table in the hotel beer garden so we could watch the public viewing of the FIFA World Cup final game ( Germany vs Argentina) with the locals. In general, they happily dealt with all our requests and are a large reason why guests love hotel Sonne I'm sure. Ate dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was very good, plus a nespresso type coffee machine with various coffee and teas in room was a welcome change from the kettles and packets of instant coffee many German hotels usually provide in-room. I highly recommend this hotel. It was one of the two best we stayed in during our 3 week journey through Germany and Austria!

We stayed at the Hotel Sonne for one night late July as part of a driving tour of Europe. We are so pleased we chose this hotel, we parked for free underground and check-in was smooth. Our room was very spacious - with the biggest bed ever (by far the largest out of all 13 hotels we stayed in!) we had a balcony on the side of the hotel with a partial view of a nearby chateau. We used the spa which could have been better - just two saunas and some gym equipment, but it was nice to relax in there for a while. In the evening we ate at a local restaurant and then wandered back to the hotel and had a couple of drinks outside, the bar staff were very attentive and friendly. Fussen is a lovely little place and so close to Neuschwanstein Castle - a definite must see although we decided not to queue for tickets to go inside as the queue was extremely long!! If we are ever in the area again we will definitely stay at the Hotel Sonne again.

We enjoyed our visit to the Hotel Sonne very much. Each room has a unique theme, it is not a traditional gastehaus. The restaurant was very good and the prices very reasonable. The menu includes a wide variety of items, from burgers through traditional German fare. Breakfast is in a different room at the hotel and was outstanding. The breakfast menu includes many more local meats and cheeses than a typical gastehaus. Parking is adjacent to the hotel and very convenient. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. My one suggestion is that the hotel provide better fans in that rooms do get warm in the summer.

Room Tip: Some rooms include a balcony - request one of these if available.
