One room of two was not made ready when we arrived on 6:30pm(!) Visa credit card is charged CHF 4.-- extra (for what please?). Location is nice with a wonderful view of lake and mountains. Staff is all east europeans (Russia), not very polite and not professional in their actions. Our rooms where not made up next day because the... More

We stayed here for 2 night and we not happy. Beds not comfortable, door numbers had fallen off, some were put on with magic marker, some with pencil and some missing part of the number. Toilet sit in our room was falling off and was not fixed. The toilet in the public area did not have a seat! We had... More

I stayed at this hotel as part of a Contiki tour in August 2013 The Hotel - Firstly if you have a large heavy bag like I did, there are steps to try to get up at the front of the hotel and more inside. There were lifts inside but a ramp outside for people's large bags would really come... More

Top of the mountain. Stonking views. Small clean rooms but for a couple of days it was perfect. Staff are all at local hotel schools. Just talk to them, they are SO charming and helpful. Sat on the terrace having very good pizza and Caesar salad. We all know Switzerland isn't cheap but we felt that the charm, location and... More

A little difficult to find, especially at night as we did, but the price was great compared to most Swiss hotels. The room was quite sparse, but functionable. The balcony off my room had a spectacular view of Lake Lucerne and the city, with the mountains in the background. The lighting in the bathroom was terrible and I could barely... More

This hotel is at the top of a mountain with an incredible view of a lake and town below. The rooms are immaculate and the front desk very nice, but with somewhat limited English (enough for the basics, though)We were there in early May, and the weather was lousy, but I could see how in nice weather it would be...

This hotel was found with a little difficulty but having "googled" it we recognized as we made the exciting drive up the hill. The hotel has a stunning view and it is easy to sit and absorb it all on the patio. Our dinner was rather expensive. Two pizzas and beverages was 68 Fr. We did ask if one pizza... More

The 4 stars are for the view. Absolutely breathtaking. The hotel is on top of a hill and it overlooks the entire city of lucerne. The rooms were okay.food was okay but we spent most of our time just hanging out outside the hotel. The hotel has a nice patio area to sit outside and enjoy the view.

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.
