My family stayed here for Christmas 2015. Very nice hotel beside the highway and a short drive to downtown Luzerne, the Alps and the famous Lake Luzerne. Breakfast was very European and adequate for us. Adequate parking and free wifi. Room was a little tight with sleeper sofa but we made it work. Overall, a nice experience.

We stayed here for two nights and found it to be a good basic hotel. The room was ok even tho it basically had no space after the sofa bed was in use. The sofa bed was big enough for two kids. The bed was ok. There is no airconditioning but it was not a problem during our stay. There...

Well placed on the A2 motorway and only 12km from Lucerne. Quiet location with farm road at side away from motorway. The breakfast is basic as with other express hotels - only hot item is boiled eggs. The breakfast room can be very busy but there is a conveniently situated high quality Marche restaurant adjacent for lunch/dinner and a Coop...

First, this hotel is much further from the city center than we anticipated. Finding a taxi driver to take a credit card was an issue 90% of the time, so ask first. Even when the hotel arranged a taxi for us, confirming a price of 40.00 Swiss Francs, once we got to the train station the driver demanded Euro 50...

Very nice Holiday Inn Express off highway. Though not too close where traffic an issue. Room had nice mountain and pasture view. Some rooms are suitable for family of four. Grocery store next door with healthy choices. No alcohol sold at gas station or grocery store presumably due to law against selling off highway. If enjoy nightcap pick up something...

You must get off the toll expressway A2, else you will miss the hotel! Must have a car and take the A2 freeway, eits located at a reststop off the freeway. Remodeled and clean hotel, good breakfast. Rooms feel spacious and functional. Staff is friendly.

Stayed here for 6 nights in May 2016. This is a great base location if you have a car and want to explore surrounding area. We traveled to France, Germany, northern Italy, Liechtenstein, and Austria and stayed each night at this hotel.

Located just by the highway, next to a shop and quite nice family-friendly restaurant, indoor and outdoor playgrounds (one just in front of the hotel), and the biggest surprise is "countryside-air"!
