Very small Bathroom with a very small tub - need to be very careful not to trip if you are taking a shower. The alternate is a sitdown - first experience of such a small tub. Stained toilet., flickering light, generally rundown room. Asked for a change of room and was told that none were available. Need to close the...

Location is good and bad. Vehicle noises from the street below and main road clearly heard since window has to be kept open to give ventilation in the room. The row of rooms across from us kept their door open to get air inside the rooms. Some people never sleep and stay out on streets talking all late hours to...

When we checked in no one was at the front desk. We found the front desk clerk in the bar, and she reluctantly came to check us in. Although her English was good, she was abrupt, rude and did not want to answer any questions. On several other occasions no one was at the desk, and we had to continually...

Very happy with the basic offerings of the hotel. What made us love the hotel was the food served in the restaurant. The lady at the reception suggested we try their...

Stayed here one night and was satisfied. Convenient to RR station. We has a Large, clean room. Adequate breakfast buffet. I would recommend for one or two night stay. Lucerne is very expensive so for the money this is a good choice.

I stayed here for a business trip in a deluxe double. The room was ok, very clean, comfy bed, good bathroom.perfect for a one night stay. Breakfast was simple but tasty. We didn't arrive until 9.45pm but by then the restaurant had closed, although there was a small place nearby which took orders until 10pm or there are more restaurants...

I was staying in this hotel for over 2 months on various business trips in the last year. They renovate the rooms constantly, stayed in old fashioned room and renovated one as well. The old rooms lack to comfort of a modern bathroom, but otherwise it is OK. The new rooms, are really good ones. If your afraid of "house...
