We booked this hotel for it wonderful view of the bridge and yes its undoubtedly beautiful at night and in the day. You can also turn left and take some nice pictures of lake lucern. Also, its about 10minutes walk from the train station. However, the rooms are in need of a facelift, seriously. The carpets and furniture looked worn....

I would say this is the best located hotel in the city. Getting to it from the train station is easy as you can see it across the river the moment you step from the station, and it's just a brief 5 minute walk across the beautiful bridge to arrive; although check in is on the side away from the...

Do not stay in this hotel if you require parking. Parking as recommended by check in staff was a 15 minute walk away at the train station. We were able to drop our bags to the door of the hotel though. Parking costs for less than 48 hours was 86 CHF. This equates to over $100. I think TripAdvisor has...

We had a wonderful time in Lucerne and staying right on the water at the wooden bridge gave us walking access to all the sights. The breakfast was amazing and the views out onto the mountains over the water were stunning!

A very very well located place to stay. Just above the Saturday food market. The whole sopping area is within easy walking distance. Excellent breakfast and friendly staff in the restaurant and at the reception. We stayed in river facing room and it was just fantastic.

Spent two nights in Hotel des Alpes in late November (not the best mountain views then because it is cold and foggy) The location next to the Chapel wooden walking bridge, seen in most pictures of Lucerne, is perfect -- especially if you pay the higher price for a balcony. Hotel is old European style and room was somewhat worn...

The Hotel is in a great location and the rooms with balconies overlooking the Chapel Bridge and the Alps in the other direction across Lake Lucerne is very nice.The room although not large is clean and comfortable and the breakfast was very good. Front desk staff attentive and polite.

We spent three nights at Hotel des Alpes in Lucerne, in late September - early October, 2014. Is the perfect location to stay when visiting Lucerne. The hotel sits right on the river, at one end of the famous Kapellbrucke (Chapel Bridge), and rooms facing the river have a view of the Kapellbrucke from their rooms. We had the perfect...

Rooms are bit small but not that small. Location is very good. Breakfast is ok, they can have few more choices. Staff is helpful, some of them can smile though :-). Overall, good place to stay in Lucerne for few days. Tip: go gor the lake view rooms
