The Sonnenberg hotel in Kriens offers panoramic views over Lake Lucerne, the mountains and the forest, a Nespresso machine in every room, seasonal cuisine and free Wi-fi. The Sonnenberg hotel is easily reachable by the historic funicular, climbing up to the Sonnenberg hotel from Kriens Dorf within 7 minutes. A large network of hiking trails surrounds the hotel and a crazy golf course and a playground are there as well. You can park your car for free on site.
It sits in a beautiful location to see the towns around and the scenery. We didn't ride the cog train, because we could see well from this vantage point. That saved us some money!
Their shuttle wasn't much available or timely and it was a long walk down the mountain to the local buses, which were extremely expensive. Their restaurant was much higher than any place we had yet been. We bought from the local grocery. Shared bathroom!
