“Nice hotel, great service...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Unfortunately we only stayed one night, the hotel is very nice with a great view of the lake, the people that run the hotel are extremely nice and went the extra yard to make our short stay just perfect, to accommodate my need for a late check out they upgraded us to the panorama suite, which was breathless, a view with 2 bedrooms, sauna, living room/kitchen, etc.
Getting to the hotel is quite a climb but definitely worth it, I would highly recommend Sonnberg, I also recommend the restaurant, much better than any restaurant we had in town.

We were staying elsewhere in Zell am See, but we booked the restaurant to celebrate my 65th birthday, together with our family. There were 10 of us in all, including a two year old, who was made very welcome.

The meal was excellent, although a little more up market than we had been anticipating - the food and service were first class throughout. The restaurant is situated a few kilometers outside Zell am See itself, and has great views down to the lake, enhanced on this occasion by a raging thunderstorm during the latter part of our meal (we had been seated inside in anticipation!).

As I step in I felt I am at home Mr. Gerhard let me feel as I know him from long time. He show me around the place ask me how many Zell am see card do I need.
We decide that night to had our meal at hotel restaurant which was great idea the food was very tasty, also you can get Pizza, but only in your room. During our stay it was rainy which forces us to stay in our suit for long time, but the view from the balcony amazing
The hotel 3 floors the 1st, 2nd has five suits and the 3rd has the biggest suit, the parking free and very convenient the hotel has two entrance in two levels which made very easy for me to take my luggage to my room.
My wife and I decide go with the family again and stay in this hotel.

Me and my partner stayed for two nights at Der Sonnberg. Zell am See is one of the most beautiful places I've been to and our staying at Der Sonnberg was a very good experience. The manager and staff were very friendly, the suite was in great condition and the view breathtaking ! Excellent breakfast was served on the terrace, very intimate and quiet , just what you need on a holiday. It is 20 minutes walk from the main shops but the walk is definitely worth it. We would definitely go back and highly recommend as a very good value for money.

This hotel is Great. it is all suites of great size. they ae large, nice and with tons of natural light. the wooden floors are great and give the rooms a very classy look. The bathrooms are modern and very well equiped. each suite has a sauna!!!!!!
The view from the rooms is unparalell!! Stunning!!
The service is great: Prompt, precise but personable!!!
finally, Very rarely you find the good combination of a hotel where you have privacy, but the staff knows what younare doing when you are out of the hotel and care about it, even worry about you!!!
I would return to Der Soonberg many times! Highly recommended!!

My wife and I stayed in Der Sonnberg during our honeymoon. The suite we stayed in was great and very spacious. It even had its own private Sauna. The view from our balcony was simply stunning. The suites were spotless and the bed were very comfortable.
Since we don't speak any German, the fact that the staff spoke perfect English was very helpful. The staff were very friendly and helpful in terms of providing us with tourism information. The hotel was not cheap but the the suite was definitely worth it.
Free cable TV including Arabic channels was a bonus and a nice way to unwind after a long day out.

However, there were a couple of disappointing things for a hotel of such standard. 1) We were changed extra (charge was per hour rather than a flat fee) for an ironing board. 2) the breakfast buffet which was included in the room rate had no eggs. We gad to pay extra to get eggs. They could do with a better breakfast buffet.

Also the location may be inconvenient for those who wish to come back to their rooms during the day. As the hotel is near the top of the mountain, the only way down to the city centre (and anywhere else) is by cab which cost a flat 10 Euros each way. I would have prefered staying somewhere more central.

Auf Grund eines Betreiberwechsels hat sich auch das Angebot im Hotel Der Sonnberg geändert. Beim Frühstücksbuffet sind Eiergerichte inkludiert, und werden bei Bestellung durch den Gast frisch zubereitet.

IT.s a beautiful hotel, with an astoninshing view...
When i booked this hotel, i have seen in the reviews, that reaching it , you have to have a car.. Ok! but we didn't thought that it was the last hotel from the hill.
It was very uncomfortable for us, beeing a family with a 3 years old boy, to have the hotel so far from everything.
The breakfast was just ok, nothing special, and no hot meals.

If you are going to zell am see, to ski, then choice a hotel in a more accesible place.
