Upon entering room we found a pile of dead wasps (about 50). There were others flying around which we killed before the children were stung. We were first offered some spray to help. Quite laughable. It took an hour to get a different room which was only for 2 (we were family of four). Although I suggested moving an extra... More

TL;DR; - Spend a bit more and sleep somewhere else (broken bed, no WiFi, no curtains, no service, torn linens). This hotel is not a place you want to spend the night in. It's located at the top of a hill overlooking Luzern, but is actually pretty far from the city. The way to the hotel is through a long,... More

Service: We arrived 30 minutes prior to the 3p check-in time and were met at the front desk by a man who preferred to speak English over German. We wanted to drop our bags at reception and would come back later, but he said we couldn't. After a bit of pressure, he disappeared, then reemerged with our room keys and... More

I stayed in March with a friend. The room wasn't clean. There was dried blood on a sheet and pillow case and none of the skeleton staff was around so we could move room. My friend was bitten several times by bugs, which travelled home with him (probably on his case or in his clothing) and infested his flat, requiring... More

The view from this hotel in absolutely incredible, and the price was very reasonable, but you get what you pay for. Those are about the only nice things I have to say. The drive up there to this place is insane, do even think about walking or taking a taxi. The restaurant is terrible and surprisingly expensive, but they have... More

Outside of Luzern up a steep windy road, which as you drive forces the car to sing the hills are alive with the sound of music. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms basic almost spartan but each with a balcony and a VIEW. The food was fantastic, limited vegetarian but expected and enough. Service great as were the blankets... More

We chose to stay here as a stopover while travelling back to the UK from Italy. We were in terrible traffic in Italy so arrived 6 hours after we thought we would. We had emailed during the day to say we would be late and the hotel responded by saying that reception is open 24hours so this out our minds... More

Amazing view.. This one is not well connected via public transport. We had rented a car from while coming from Frankfurt so had no issues to reach the place.

Good for a short trip and relaxing moment View all over Lucerne and the lake. We stayed in room 305 it was clean, double bed, free parking. It was easy to book and the reception is very friendly. You have to drive up on a hill but it's easy. We had also dinner and breakfast.

Location on top of the hill with a view of Lucerne and mount Pilatus behind is a breathtaking location. Ideal for long recharging walks or bike rides in many of the marked trails with scenery straight out of a postcard. Rooms are spacious and cosy with wooden flooring and wood furniture. Heating facilities available everywhere in the room ideal for... More
