About Die kleine Sonne, Rostock

Cheerful hotel with lobby bar, right beside Neuer Markt

On New Market square

Directly on Neuer Markt, or New Market square, Die kleine Sonne is as central as it gets in Rostock's Old Town. The edge of the Unterwarnow estuary is around 10 minutes' walk away, and the nearest tram station, also on Neuer Markt, is right in front of the hotel.

A view from St. Peter's

The 14th-century Petrikirche, a 10-minute walk, is the oldest church in Rostock and offers views across the city and off to sea. A 5-minute tram ride will get you to Kröpeliner Tor Vorstadt, a vibrant neighborhood outside the old city walls with lively nightlife.

Full-service spa

The daily breakfast buffet is served in a brightly colored dining room, while the tempting "Kleine Kiosk" offers guests a selection of chips, chocolate, and mini bottles of champagne. The lobby bar, like much of the hotel, features the pop art of Berlin artist Nil Ausländer. A full-service spa is available with steam room, body and facial treatments, and massages.

WiFi and flat-screen TV

Each room offers complimentary WiFi and a flat-screen TV, keeping you connected and entertained, if you choose to spend the evening in. True to the hotel's name, which means "small sun" in German, the 48 rooms are bright and sun-filled, with high ceilings and light wood furniture. Free cribs are available.

Die kleine Sonne, Rostock
Very nice house in an excellent location. However, during the five days of my stay (Monday to Friday) the staff was unable to fix the internet connection, which wasn't working either in my room or in the lobby. The members of staff were friendly, but not very flexible and did not seem too eager to solve the problem. Not particularly recommended for business travel.

A lot to offer a traveller
An older hotel, but right in the heart of the city with every imaginative style restaurant you could ever want. It's a wonderful city with lots of old world charm, loved walking around felling safe and free to investigate ever street and arcade. Back to the hotel, young John at the reception was a most pleasant young man with a strong enthusiasm to help you in anyway he can, come parking, bags, room comfort and local knowledge, he is a credit to the hotel. Buffet breakfast was plentiful and delicious....mmmmm...The hotel and staff were so good I nearly changed my plans and stay another couple of time!

Decent stay in the middle of the city
The Small Sun hotel is situated 50m from the main big, central city square. This location makes it a great area to start from if you are looking for a "city vacation". One thing worth mentioning is that if you have a car, you need to use the parking garage of the "Big Sun" hotel, this gives you an elevator, a few stairs, crossing a street, and then another elevator/stair between your room and your car. Just based on this I would reccomend persons with a vehicle to choose the "Big Sun" hotel. For those travellers who do not have a vehicle the "Small Sun" hotel is perfect. The WiFi is free and relatively fast, and the shower has good pressure. The desk is not manned during the night, but you get a key-card to unlock the front door. We did not try the breakfast. The staff seems nice and knowleable about the area. I would stay here again if I did not have a vehicle.
