My friends and I stayed in a 5 bed room which wasn't big but fit us all neatly. The location was amazingly close to Old Town, the train station and any bus or boat station that we needed to catch and it is right next door to a wonderful bakery and chocolate shop. Solar heated pool was open but it... More

I'd never complained any hotel before but this time it's unacceptable for me. When I checked out, I would like to leave my suitcase with the hotel but I'd be charged for CHF10. Staff suggested me to leave at the train station that I could understand she couldn't do anything. I asked her to check out and call taxi for... More

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
