We are 4 friends and we stayed one night in this hotel. The room was quite big, but because of the extra beds became smaller. But still enough space four of us. Big plus is the location and the friendly staff. They were very helpful and polite. We got breakfast in our room. The breakfast was very big, several types... More

This has been the absolutely worst hotel I have stayed in due to a variety of factors. Firstly, the rooms were tiny and despite asking for a room to accomodate my family of 5, we were given a small room suitable for 2 people with 2 sofabeds and 1 foldable bed squeezed into the room. We had hardly any space... More

We were meant to originally be staying at the Hotel Rosli across the street which is a part of the Hotel Baslertor. When we walked past it on the street we were extremely disappointed and were dreading staying here, it looked dirty and unkempt. We had to go to the Hotel Baslertor reception to check-in expecting to be told we... More

The hotel is in a great location, it could maybe do with a refurb but overall it was fantastic for what we needed. We booked two rooms for 9 of us, and ended up with more beds than we needed and not much space for our luggage. So next time I'd book a third room just to spread us out... More

The location is great - right in the center of old Lucern, however pictures look better that the reality. The place is worn, and although it has all the amenities for the 3 star hotel, it can be only called 'basic'. Also the picture of a grand building that TripAdvisor displays is not the hotel - it is one of... More

I was a little concerned with some other reviews I had seen, but I must say, I have no idea what they are talking about! Our room, though tiny, was clean and neat. We had a larger bathroom than our last hotel in Zurich! Again, clean and neat. We come to a hotel to pretty much drop our bags and... More

My friends and I stayed here in July, and we were extremely disappointed. We stayed in 5 hotels over the course of our 2 week stay in Switzerland and this was by far the worst lodging experience that we had (as well as the most overpriced). The location was very good, but the positives end there. Probably the worst part... More

Terrible service, very rude staff. Even though good location, not worth the over priced rates for small rooms with no air conditioning (don't believe their website, only a few rooms have AC). My husband and I loved Lucerne but were so unhappy with Baslertor that it colored our entire experience.

Stayed there for 6 days last year, and found it very small and outdated. The only real plus was the lovely location right next to the river and just a short walk from the train station. The room we stayed in was so small for the five of us. There was a bunk bed and three single beds next to... More

I stayed here recently as the location of this hotel is very good, just a 5 minute walk from the train station. It also has a terrace,pool and an ironing board but for sometime, the receptionist would not be around to serve guests and there are only one receptionist every time. There's no kettle in the room so we had... More
