This hotel is not NOT worth the money - but the tenants, a couple of underpaid migrants from the east, are doing their best to keep the old building running: very old furniture, no heating, muddy carpets - only go there if you love charming telephones from the fifties and a hotel with the front door open all night.

Except for the view from the room nothing else is good in this hotel. The staff speak absolutely NIL English making it very difficult for us to communicate .The breakfast was just Crossiants and bread in a basket with a choice of coffee or tea...nothing else !! The rooms are basic and hottttt in summer. The place exudes a ghostly... More

We stayed in this hotel for only one night on our bus trip to Switzerland. We had a charming room on the last floor with a view of lake - and the view was more than magnificent especially on the sunrise! We haven't heard any noise from the road (although road was right next to the hotel), so we had... More

The hotel manager has a bad habit for overcharging guests. Our reservation was made from Geneva on September 9. We were told that breakfast was included in the price quote. At check-out on September 11, the desk manager, Sissi, tried to increase the bill for breakfast. We had been warned about this dubious practice from an earlier Trip Advisor report.... More

when grace prevailed and old world manners were a thing to be valued. This hotel looks like it was frozen in another era. The dining room is simply old style elegant and our breakfast was served to us on proper china and linen. The rooms are pretty and ours had a balcony overlooking Lake Lucerne. Our bathroom had a giant... More

We sought out this hotel on our return to Lucerne, haveing stayed on our last trip. Vintage furniture and a but dated, but that was part of the appeal. However, upon vacating we were charge substantially more for the night than originally arranged via phone from Australia. Be aware, Sisi loves her Swiss Francs... and yours!. A nice old place...

We stayed at this hotel just by accident because another hotel which we were supposed to sleep at had a pipe problem and we were guided to go to Beau Sejour instead. My first impression for Beau Sejour was that room and furniture are a little bit outdated; however, our experience at this hotel has turned out very much satisfying... More
