Great beds, great location - we had a nice view of the church and square from our balcony. Reception staff were friendly. We had a double room with an adjoining area and single bed - the door that separated the two had a section that was completely see through - no privacy if you wanted any! Although we booked without... More

One of reason we choose this hotel because of its price. Secondly the location of the hotel, and the last one, it has a good review compare with others with approx same price. The location is close with the station, only 10 minutes walk along with picturesque riverbanks. We are using google maps so, the place is easy to find.... More

The hotel is located near the train station, the chapel bridge and wonderful restaurants. The hotel is in a quite area near a church. The room needed some updating, bare walls and an old carpet but the beds were comfortable. Found lots of hair on the bathroom floor and shower (not mine!) Breakfast was very good. We heard the restaurant... More

Room was very clean and our first impressions were good because of the very friendly staff and their knowledge of the area. We were given information on our Trip to Rigi Klum which turned out to be the highlight of our trip. We were provide with a local map of the tourist attractions. The hotel is a short walk along...

Hotel is walking distance from Lucerne Train station. Close to Chapel Bridge and Old Town, basically it is very convenient location with supermarkets and restaurants and shopping all within walking distance. This is a basic accommodation so do not expect all the frills but for the price in this town it is very good price and rooms are clean and... More

Hotel is near to the train station although still a bit difficult to find. Room was large and clean. One major fault.....NOISE. We had a 'garden view' room which actually overlooked a road and multi story car park but this was fine as it was quiet enough. The problems started when we came back from a night in Lucerne and...

Great proximity to Lucerne Train station and ferry terminal. Close to the old part of town. Room basic but clean and tidy. (It is only a 2 star hotel, but is better than some of the 3 stars we have stayed in).Everything worked. Staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. No aircon though - but we knew that when we booked.... More

We just came back from spending 4 days in Luzern at this hotel. We were very pleased. This is a good, safe place to stay that meets basic needs. Our room faced the courtyard, next to a church (built in 1070) and we loved hearing the church bells and watching the variety of people who walked by. It is historic,... More

We stayed here as part of a big road trip last year. Our room was next to the big key on the exterior of the building. From the outside the hotel was beautiful and the square it's located in is very quiet and peaceful. On the inside, the staff were very friendly and the although we didn't go, the restaurant... More
