The hotel was located a few steps away from the tram stop so it was great for people with luggage. It was clean and well maintained and checking in was easy. Had problems checking out though because of language / translation difficulties. Breakfast was jus OK but hot chocolate was good. Basic cold cuts and few choices but croissant and... More

Look closely at the photos before you book. The rooms are extremely basic - there is no bathroom, the shower door is right off the main room and the basin is actually in the room. The bed's mattress is a very basic foam mattress. We walked from the train station and it took about 15 mins. The location is ok... More

When you book a budget hotel you expect the bare minimum and this hotel provided just about that. Firstly, the bathroom is very bizarre. Everything is separate, the shower has a glass door giving almost no privacy and the toilet has a large hole for a handle, again allowing no privacy. Every time someone spoke in the next room we...

Hotels in Lucerne are expensive so was happy to find this Budget Hotel near the Train station and walking Distance to main attractions of Lucerne. Staff members are friendly and helpful, Rooms are clean and modern. Toilet and shower quite small but manageable. Parking available. Breakfast is good and cheap. If you travel on a budget and don't expect too... More

We travelled in the May 2015 and stayed here. The rooms are described on their site, a bit small and but we found them comfortable and well lit. The rooms are well done up and they have tried to economize the space well. The location is nice with a 10-15 min walk from the station. The hotel has a restaurant... More

Though Switzerland is an expensive place this hotel is the best in the budget class, its just about 10 to 15 minutes walk from luzern station. Bus no 4 takes you to this hotel from luzern station. The bus stop is just outside the hotel. Coming to the hotel the rooms are compact, we had booked a room for 2... More

Visited in May 2015. Booked a triple bedroom for me, wife and 2 kids. However, upon check in the lady at reception just watched my kids and told me that i am upgrading your room to a 4 bedroom because that is available and that too free of charge. What better can be done to make a loyal customer. Room... More

Spent two nights at the ibis Budget in Lucerne. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the station (in the opposite direction to the "old town"). There is a bus stop outside the hotel if you need to get back to the station with bags/luggage. The walk is quite easy so not really an issue. Being 15 minutes from... More

During one week trip to France and Switzerland,we stayed in 3 IBIS hotels at Lyon( 2 nights),Lucern( 2 nights) and Zurich ( 1 night). We had a comfortable stay due to following reasons. 1.Rooms are thoughtfully designed.Though compact,they serve the purpose. 2.You can really sleep well as beds give unparalleled comfort,much better than some other 4 star or 5 star...
