we found this hotel on line, and I will say it was a pleasant surprise. we were a 5 minute walk to the city center, but it was easy to navigate. the hotel offered reasonable priced parking, a large selection of English speaking channels so we could unwind after our long day of walking and sightseeing. the restaurant menu looked...

Stayed for 2 nights here - generally okay with nice room and comfortable bed. I had a small balcony too which was good to get some fresh (and of course Icy) air. Limited facilities in room/bathroom. TV available but hard to find any English or Hindi channels. Bit offside but if you walk outside the hotel, turn left after the... More

Went there last December. The hotel is located about 15 mins walk from lucerne hb. At first I had a hard time finding the hotel and the bus stop was about 3 mins walk. Once u know the directions, it's easy to find the hotel. The hotel reception was ok. I was given a password for wifi for my 3... More

Stayed here whilst cycling solo from Lancashire to Sicily in May 2014. Good value and well located this hotel was fine for a short stay but the hotel is in need of a refurbishment, and could do with speeding up it's room prep as I was kept ages waiting for a room! The restaurant serves good local food and the... More

This hotel has to find a way to air it out. The cigarette smoke is all over and everywhere. Breakfast, dining room, bedroom, even at the 4th floor. No air conditioning. The hotel is 10-15min away from the centre, by tram.

You get what you pay for and I wasn't expecting much. But it served its purpose, the room was small but clean, wiFi worked. What more do you want? Go pay the big prices and you will probably get the same.

An excellent quality room with very good facillities. There was no television facillity from the bedroom part of the room, the sitting area had to be used. Some english news channels available to keep in touch with the news. Breakfast room was a bit disjointed as the main use for the room was a bar in the evenings. The No-smoking... More

As some other reviewers have noted, the hotel--at least the front-street facing rooms--are not quiet because of the adjacent bar. This is not an issue for us for two simple reasons: I always have earplugs when we travel (falling feathers wake me up!) and my husband could sleep next door to a train station and never hear anything.

The rooms at the Hotel Rothaus are terrible and service is worse. The bathrooms are extremely small and its difficult to get your way around them. The hustle bustle of the city never fails to disturb you and noise from the other rooms is quite audible. The location is pretty decent as the bus stop is right across the road... More
