I was on an one-day trip visiting Lucerne without making a reservation. Staying in this hotel was a relaxing experience. The location is ideal and comparing the prices within the other hotels and B&Bs the room was just perfect. It was quite spacious with a big bed a couch and an armchair. As for the cleanliness I did not notice... More

I want to be fair, so let me say that this property is in a very good location - close to the Old Town. It is downtown and a "not too far" walk from the train station. Lucerne is amazing, so anywhere you stay is worth it - almost. My husband and I made a reservation through a booking company,... More

We booked a 6-bed room in Roesli Guest House and paid for around 186€ for the room. It was a surprise that we got a room in this hotel. The hotel was nice and clean with a helpful reception man. Around 10 mins from main station. Free working wi-fi. No complaints during our one-night stay.

The main reason to stay here is the location. It's right by the river and a short walk to the centre of town. Cannot say enough good things about Lucerne. Go to the transportation museum! It's amazing. Switzerland is just incredible and the Swiss are lovely people. However let's focus on the hotel! Pros: Location is great, has a fitness... More

The Baslertor is a functional hotel which offers a no frills basic accommodation in a great location. You are not going to spend too much time inside four walls when in Luzern. We just needed a family room to crash in the evening after the sight seeing. So it was ok for us at a decent price. The family room... More

Stayed here for one day/night and even though the rooms (four of us had booked 2 rooms) were quite alright and clean, the toilets, that too in both our rooms, were really stinky and too small. I don't know whether it was the old shower curtains or that the cleaning staff just doesnt clean it properly or what but they... More

we arrived at this hotel without a booking, though the male receptionist said no problem but the room would be 30 minutes before it was ready, fine we returned 30 minutes later not ready eventually 4 hours later the room was ready (incidently not a word of apology). It was certainly not worth the wait, peeling paint on the doors... More

We have never experienced such a terrible hotel. Do not stay here. When we arrived, the receptionist woman was extremely rude and was very put out when I asked a simple question. She insisted we pay for our two night stay right away but stated she did not have time to give me a receipt as she was very busy.... More
