“Beautiful, quiet location”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Very nice, quality hotel. Sits on a ridge above the center of Hinterzarten; a short walk away. Very generous sized rooms, very clean and yet a bit of a cozy feel. The view out the windows is bucolic and the area is full of hiking/wandering trails. The owner couple was very engaging and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful and varied.

Only negative at all is the lack of wifi - the one spot in the hotel we were told it would work, did not - at least with an ipad.

The Black Forest card was an incredible and unexpected addition to our stay. All train and bus transportation all the way to Basel is free of charge with this card. We left the car parked at the hotel for the entirety of our stay. Train station is a short walk down the hill and Freiburg is a short 30 min or so train ride, the Titisee, just the next train stop. This was a great way to explore the area without worrying about driving directions, parking, etc.

Also, the ski museum just down the hill is worth a visit. Quite a beautiful area overall and worth the visit.

We traveled to the Black Forest for a family vacation and stayed in this beautiful hotel for seven nights. The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of the most interesting part of the black forest, in a beautiful country little town. The lovely Lehanman couple succeeded to create a rare combination between a high standard hotel and a most intimate place. We stayed in a very comfortable, clean and spacious double room with our two kids (ages 5.5 and 8.5). The first thing we saw when we looked out the window was a group of cows on a hill near to a small river... That was exactly what we were looking for., a high class hotel in a beautiful country side area. During our stay we've experienced great hospitality, in particular towards our kids who felt most welcome. To summarize, that was a perfect vacation in a perfect place. We'll definitely come back in the future.

Reviewed 14 August 2012

Hotel Sonnenberg is located at the far border of that place, quite some 10 minutes (to walk) away from the center of Hinterzarten. That makes it a very calm location and at night it's absolutely silent there.

The owner itself guided to the room which was huge and very Schwarzwald-style furnished with thick dark carpet, large chairs, desk and everything one could wish - except that the mattresses weren't very good for us. On the other hand the building has its age and will once need a refresh - it's not a typical Schwarzwald-House but 70-ies likely.

It has a indoor pool with small sauna and there is a physio-therapy office in there. They have a very nice room for breakfast that is rich and good - but they don't have a restaurant for lunch or dinner.

Room Tip: Seems that all rooms have balcony - so they are all okay!

The location is perfect for black forest vacation as well as hikes.
The room was ample, clean and pleasant with a gorgeous view.
The service was excellent.
The morning buffet had a great variety (the kids loved it).
The indoor swimming pool was a great attraction for the kids.
Above all, the owners are lovely and warm and made us feel at home away from home.
We would definitely recommend it to a family going to the black forest.

Room Tip: Room #6 is excellent for a family with 2 young children
