I can't believe that with the location it has on top of the town , on a hill , near the forest and parc - with an amazing view it hasn't been developed properly. With the location they have - the amazing surroundings - they could have been a 5 star. But the rooms are basics and are furnished each... More

Positive: I enjoyed the view over the city of Luzern. Negative: The heating of the room did not work. The shower hose was broken. All breakfast cups were badly washed with leftover cereal. Employees do not know the word professionalism. Although the price is not high, the conditions are bad.

This hotel is not for the hard to please. It is at the top of a winding road. Not recommend finding it in the dark. The rooms were clean & spacious, but if the place was full would have been very noisy as the halls are not carpeted. The view was spectacular, the staff was accommodating. We were there 1st... More

We booked one night at this hotel for August 31 2013 and advised them that we will be arriving late at night. The hotel is located in the top of the hill. Neither our GPS nor cell phone navigator were able to give us the direction to the address listed on our reservation. After driving in the dark, ( no... More

This was one of the worst experiences, and something you don't expect in Switzerland. In fact, this is barely a hotel review since we were bounced out. After reserving, including a special comment that we would arrive late, the hotel was overbooked and they could not accommodate us. So the inconvenient trip uphill was in vain. Their solution was to... More

It's definitely worth the cab ride! The rooms were clean and well-kept and HUGE and the staff were so helpful! They went out of their... More

Pros: The view is incredible - but then again, there are few places in Switzerland where it isn't. Camping, for instance. Camping in Switzerland has incredible views. And a similar level of service and amenities. Cons: Overbooking is very common at this hotel and you will be rerouted (upon arrival, no prior notice), to more run-down hotels far out of... More

The hotel is located about 10min by bus outside of Lucerne and then a 20-30min uphill walk to the hotel. We stayed here while on Contiki. It is a very quiet and picturesque location and the breakfast was satisfactory. The bathroom however left much to be desired. The ceiling was covered in mould as was the interior of the very... More

This hotel is AWESOME! The location is about a 35 euro cab outside of Lucerne, in the little village of Kriens. It has a FANTASTIC view of the city below and the gorgeous mountains surrounding the hotel. Its nice and quiet, very relaxing. The staff are EXTREMELY friendly and accommodating. The rooms are large and clean. The beds are very... More

First of all, this hotel has an amazing view! The best part of the hotel is sitting out on the deck staring at the scenery. The rooms are very basic. The shower was great. Fantastic water pressure. I'm glad that I was staying in the hotel room by myself though. There is only a double bed in every room. I... More
