We visited Lucerne for 4 days before our riverboat cruise. Margaret from the front desk provided us with awesome tips for our visit. The hotel was in the perfect location, easy to walk to from the train station even with luggage. Rooms were clean, great water pressure in the shower and the breakfast was very good. You will need to...

I booked a single room with a shared bath on hostelword for $70 a night and would say it was a great deal. I was on the first floor(actually second) and had a room that faced the back, not the river. When I checked in there was a great older gentleman who helped me get my barrings of Lucerne and...

Excellent hotel. Great views overlooking the river. Mixup in reservation but Margrit Schuepbach helped to our total satisfaction. Great location, close to Old Town. Would definitely return to this hotel.

We couldn't check in until 3pm but overall this was a good hotel. Close to everything, the staff were friendly and our room huge. We had room 401 with its own bathroom, two single beds pushed together plus an extra single bed. We didn't have a balcony but that didn't worry us. Breakfast was ok with a lot to choose...

We arrived lunchtime and found the last parking space outside the the hotel. Reception was very helpful and insisted once we had been to our room and relaxed unpacked etc to pop down.

The staff was very professional and helpful with suggestions on what to do. Could walk from hotel to anywhere we wanted to visit. Restaurants, shopping and attractions were very close. Room was very comfortable and offered a great view! Parking was not easy to find anywhere in Lucerne!!!

I have been to many countries and stayed more hotels/resorts that I can remember. This was the worst. In our booking, it was stated "private shared bathrooms". We were given dormitory-style hostel rooms instead where toilet/bath facilities were shared. Naturally, we sought clarification. The counter staff was rude and unhelpful, bordering on being condescending, with remarks such as, "You can...

We spent one night at this hotel with our 2 daughters. The location is great and very convenient to the local attractions. We were able to park the car and walk everywhere that we wanted to go. We had a huge suite with 3 bedrooms, dining room, kitchen and balcony with nice view so we were able to spread out....

The toilet wasnt throughly cleaned. There were remnants of previous visitor on the toilet seat and that wasn't very pleasant experience. Other parts of the room were okay~nicely cleaned. Moreover old man at the reception isn't very enthusiastic person. He seems to be a kind person, but more of a 'deal with it' person rather than helpful person. Finally there...

Our family stayed one night here on our way through Switzerland. The gentlemen working the front desk were extremely helpful in assisting us with a day trip to Mt Pilatus and a nice dinner recommendation. The hotel room was small but very clean and the hotel breakfast was great.
