10/10 Exceptional

What a lovely place to stay. The mountain view from both the bedroom and breakfast rooms were fantastic. As the hotel has an elevated position above the town the view is uninterrupted...certainly worth a little extra for a mountain view room with a balcony. The room in the chalet was atmospheric, warm and cosy and very clean. The hotel's elevated position does mean you have a steep path to walk up so a reasonable level of mobility is required...we were there in the snow and it was manageable but icy in places so good footwear is a good idea. The hotel proprietor was most affable and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel for its quality, ambience and the views of the mountains, and the Eiger in particular, are simply stunning. From the balcony we watched skiers and sledgers coming down the floodlit pistes every evening whilst having a beer. The hotel is very conveniently located for the town and railway station and hence trips up the mountain on the Jungfrau rack and pinion railway. If coming by train from one of the airports don't forget to buy a Swiss Rail half price pass as this gets you half price on the Jungfrau 'Top of Europe' railway and on the main cabin lifts as well as from the airport itself. We can not wait to go back to Hotel Sonnenberg again both in the summer and winter.

buy a golfcart for your guests use
the only reason i won't give this hotel a 5 out of 5 rating is if you have a heart condition, leg or hip issues you don't want to stay here as the walk from the parking lot to the hotel is easily 250 meters up a 10+ degree hill. No close parking or assistance getting up the was not a good experience for my companion. Hotel is good, staff friendly and room was nice.

6/10 Good

The condition of the hotel is a bit old, the blanket itself turns yellow and with stains which make me feels uncomfortable. Also, there were a lot of little insects around the room, so please be careful to choose when you concerns the above. You also need to walk through quite a number of inclined road and there is no lift inside the building. Other than that, the hotel staff is friendly and the breakfast is good.

Beautiful Place to Stay
Walk to the hotel from parking with luggage was a little difficult for older guests. The views were excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
