Pros: The view is incredible - but then again, there are few places in Switzerland where it isn't. Camping, for instance. Camping in Switzerland has incredible views. And a similar level of service and amenities. Cons: Overbooking is very common at this hotel and you will be rerouted (upon arrival, no prior notice), to more run-down hotels far out of...

The hotel is located about 10min by bus outside of Lucerne and then a 20-30min uphill walk to the hotel. We stayed here while on Contiki. It is a very quiet and picturesque location and the breakfast was satisfactory. The bathroom however left much to be desired. The ceiling was covered in mould as was the interior of the very...

This hotel is AWESOME! The location is about a 35 euro cab outside of Lucerne, in the little village of Kriens. It has a FANTASTIC view of the city below and the gorgeous mountains surrounding the hotel. Its nice and quiet, very relaxing. The staff are EXTREMELY friendly and accommodating.

First of all, this hotel has an amazing view! The best part of the hotel is sitting out on the deck staring at the scenery. The rooms are very basic. The shower was great. Fantastic water pressure. I'm glad that I was staying in the hotel room by myself though. There is only a double bed in every room. I...

I went to this hotel as part of a Contiki tour, so i was not expecting much. and i'd also heard some bad things, but it had just come under new management and had had a spruce up. To my delight, it turned out to easily be the best hotel of the tour in my opinion. Awesome views. Awesome fresh...

I stayed here as part of a contiki tour, so I didn't have much of an expectation, but this fell well short of even that. Pros? The view, it really is pretty. Cons? Where to start?? - dinner, they ran out of food and didn't care - no hot water and lack of any care factor or ability to have...

We stayed here for two nights. There is absolutely no way yo control the temperature in your room, so we were sweltering each night. It was either put up with the dry heat, or open the windows to let in the freezing cold wind. The room was huge, and easily fit in two people and our equally as big suit...

I have booked two rooms for three nights in Himmelrich through Expedia two weeks in advance. We arrived to Zurich on a night train from Amsterdam, drove for an hour and you can imagine the "pleasant" surprise when the attendant replied "sorry we have no rooms". These rooms were paid for in advance. We were asked to move to another...
