This hotel in a very good location and had beautiful views. The staff was the biggest problem at this place. Very rude and not helpful at all. We were told we couldn't leave at night because we would be locked out! Finally we were told we could and of we ring a bell someone would let us in. It still... More

The town is beautiful as is the natural scenery surrounding it. However, the room we stayed in was awful. The size was less than small. It was so small that we had to walk sideways to get around the room. Then there was no hot water for the showers unless you wake up at 5am before others get in and... More

We stayed at this hotel in late March 2014 as part of a group. The hotel's location in the town is central, however there is not much to do here anyway except enjoy the views. The room was basic as stated in previous reviews, beds comfortable and clean. The bathroom required you to go up 3 steps making a 3am... More

The pictures posted by others are similar to what I found to be true of Hotel Lowen. We stayed with a tour group as well and unfortunately about 1/4 of us were stuck with horrible rooms. Our room smelled like cat urine, the curtain was hanging off and then fell completely off on day 2, the light didn't work, we... More

Our group of travelers stayed in Hotel Lowen for two nights and we enjoyed a lovely stay in this quaint Swiss hotel. Upon arrival we hauled our luggage up several flights of stairs to find that the room numbering system was somewhat confusing. The one teeny tiny elevator was being used by another group at the time and could only... More

Based on the other reviews, I knew that this was an older hotel/inn, that catered to a lot of tours. Rooms were basic, but quite adequate and clean. The view out the back of the hotel across the Lungernsee to the mountains was charming. Dinner and the service were good. Breakfast appears to have been typical Swiss, and though not... More

I stayed in the hotel for one night . Despite my fears after reading the previous reviews, I was attended to by a polite receptionist, found the room clean and tidy. The simple food served promptly in the dining room was fresh and tasty. I will gladly come back again as soon as I have an opportunity.

A lovely location, but the hotel was very basic. Could have been a bit cleaner and the staff more polite. Felt very rushed through meals. The beauty of the area far outweighed the lack of kindness shown at the hotel.
