Charming hotel in the center of old town Lurcene. Best buffet breakfast we have had at hotel Styling imitates renaissance. Staff are very helpful and knowledgeable regarding the Lurcene area. Only con was the pillows are like mash mellows but the seems to be the standard in Europe.

We were on the top floor in the Egyptian room and loved it. They obviously choose the decor due to the slanting ceiling. We loved location it was so close to the bridges, shopping, and the view from our windows into the courtyard was spectacular. We were there when it was cooler, and our room was quite warm, we had...

At just a few minutes walk from the main railway station, the Hotel Magic is in a fantastic location with the old town of Luzern on your doorstep. A majority of the themed rooms overlook the Kornmarkt, a bustling little square that leads directly down some steps towards the river and the town's famous Kapellbrucke bridge. The Hotel Magic is...

Man at reception during check in was friendly and helpful - I think his name was Daniel from memory. We were in the lotus room. The room did get a bit warm at night and we couldn't leave the windows open due to the noise and cigarette smoke from the square below. There was a fan for use in the...

Our room was not yet ready when we arrived so we dropped our luggage with concierge. The lady was friendly and offered suggestions on where to eat and visit. We booked the Hotel Magic but got an upgrade to the Alstadt apartment. It was renovated just 2 months ago. Feel like brand new. We stayed at the first floor with...

We stayed here on our vacation through Switzerland. We booked the hotel through booking.com. We arrived early from Zurich and couldn't check in but they let us leave our luggage, which was very nice! The lady at the front desk was very friendly as well. We checked in later and the room is only decent I would say. The bed...

Every room in this hotel is made to a theme. Ours was a "Pirate Room" Boat shaped bed, Pirate guns, measure chest, Ropes handing from the ceiling.... felt as if we were actually sleeping in a pirate ship! Small but clean bathroom, clean linen...what else can one ask for. Nice quaint hotel in the heart of town, surrounded by shopping,...

The best thing about this hotel was the excellent reception staff at the Krone hotel where check-in/check-out is done. The room was large and it had a marvelous tub big enough for two, but many things were off: drapes were quite obviously very dirty at the bottom hem, the bubble jets in the tub did not work, the table on...
