Romantik Seehotel Sonne
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Kusnacht
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 April 2007

I travel a lot in the US, and I'm used to total indifference from hotel staff. I guess that's why I'm so impressed with the Romantik Seehotel Sonne in Kusnacht. From the time you arrive, until you leave, everyone is friendly and accommodating. The room was spacious and comfortable. The buffet breakfast, included in the price I paid, was excellent.

The hotel is only a few blocks from the train station, and a very easy walk, even with bags. There is a dock in front of the hotel where you can catch round-trip excursion boats that cruise Lake Zurich every hour.

Don’t hesitate to take the train from the Zurich Airport when you arrive. The S16 goes directly from the airport to the Kusnacht station—no transfer. It’s very easy.

I am not easy to impress--a pretty jaded traveler. But just one example will show you what the service level is at the hotel. I needed to depart early to the airport, about 5:00 AM. This small hotel doesn’t have a bustling lobby 24 hours a day, so when I came down the elevator, it looked as if things were closed up. As soon as I walked into the lobby, lights came on and I was greeted by a staff member. The restaurant wasn’t open, but he insisted on making me a cup of coffee to send me on my way, which he quickly prepared and served with some cookies.

You’ll enjoy your stay.

This is now the Romantik Hotel Sonne. It is in a great location steps from the Kusnacht train station (a tunnel goes under the street, which I discovered after crossing the busy street), which itself is just 12 minutes from the Central Zurich station. It is situated directly on the lake, and the boats even stop there on their runs. I found the upscale suburb of Kusnacht to be a great place to stay, even if it''s not walking distance to central Zurich.(Tina Turner lives in the next town.) In fact, the airport is a mere 28 minutes by direct train twice an hour, although there are more frequent trains between Kusnacht and Zurich. The hotel is in two buildings, with two excellent restaurants. It is a very old and historic property, but completely up to date, elegant, and with all the modern comforts of home. There is an Andy Warhol original painting in the lobby and dozens of other signficant works of art all over. My room was two level, with a large bathroom, desk, and comfortable furnishings. My only minor disappointment was the inability to get online. The hotel offers a wireless internet service operated by another company for a fee. But I was not in my room very much so I didn't miss it that much. A very special place, and very romantic, too! Fits the name!

First off, the deal on Expedia was way cheaper than going direct with the hotel.

Second - if you're relying on GPS to get you there, make sure you tap in "Seestrasse KUSNACHT, not Seestrasse Zurich, as I did (not because I wasn't aware that it was in Kusnacht, but because the official address on Expedia gives "Zurich".

But, was it ever worth the small extra journey! The reception staff were perfect. Very friendly and attentive, and helped with everything. There is a choice of 2 restaurants, an international one and a Swiss-style place. I went for the latter, and had a very pleasant meal.

The room was very nicely decorated in a modern style, with a decent bathroom.

If you ever see any of my other reviews, you'll know that one of my main gripes is otherwise-decent hotels without irons and ironing boards in the room. This did not have them, but I've learnt to put up now, and I invested in a decent travel iron! Still not as good as the real thing though.

The location is every bit as picturesque as described on their website, and by my fellow reviewers. Even though I stayed in a November, I could see how amazing it would be in the summer, with the outdoor terrace backing onto the restaurant.

I don't like staying in bustling city centres as a rule, so I would definitely come back here when next in Zurich.

Family of three stayed 22/5 to 25/5/06. Lovely Hotel overlooking the lake rooms quite spacious and nicely appointed. Take the ferry from the the front to go to Zurich central fantastic views while taking it easy. Only small gripe Dinner at the hotel quite expensive for the food they serve for a cheaper alternative go to their outside cafe much cheaper and better choices for dining we thought.

I’ve been staying in the village of Kuesnacht instead of the city of Zurich for several years, usually staying at the Ermitage. But with the closing of the Ermitage, I had to find another place, and I was wowed by this wonderful hotel!

I stayed in a lakeview double room, so it was more expensive than the courtyard versions. When I opened the door of the room, I was in a small vestibule with an armoire and a writing table, and the bathroom off to the right. The sleeping and sitting areas were up a few stairs in front of me, and it had a table with two reading chairs, a double bed, and a television. The décor is modern, but it’s warm and inviting because of the warm colors and thoughtful touches. The windows out on the lake were in the bedroom/sitting room, opposite of the bed. Website at www.sonne.ch.

The hotel has two restaurants (one more formal), a bar, and a garden-bar. Eating or sipping wine outside by the lake is a particular delight!
The hotel is located literally just steps from the train station in Kuesnacht. As you exit the station, just head straight ahead and downhill. You’ll come to an underpass under the main road, and as you exit the underpass, the hotel is right there!

The S-Bahn into Zurich takes about 15 minutes, and the direct train into Zurich airport takes about 20 minutes.
