We were initially hesitant because of the dark lobby when we arrived at night, but became comfortable at The Hotel, a renovated/repurposed building - very sleek and modern. We had a large room with a loft bathroom. Interesting design elements. While not right in the middle of the touristy sites of the lake/river, it is a short walk and adjacent... More

Beautiful hotel and staff. Situated right on the lake and an easy stroll into the city,as well as being near to the tourist attractions. Breakfast buffet is wonderful and you are not rushed by the staff. A great place to stay.

Close to the city centre it's the perfect hotel to stay in Lucerne. nice design, modern interior and very clean bathroom! It's maybe not the typical business hotel but I definitely would stay there again. It's also the perfect place to stay if you're in town for sightseeing, clubbing, concerts, restaurants ect. It's not a family hotel I would stay... More

Do yourselves a favour, don't bother coming near this hotel. The reception is the only organised place in this hotel. Breakfast service takes 25 mins before waitress drops by, no buffet system you have to wait for service. Only 2 ladies when there are more than 15 tables to serve, they are trying...no bread as thy have not made any...... More

I love a good boutique hotel when it's done right...unfortunately this one isn't it. The rooms are themed by movies and the one we stayed in was a Junior Suite and had a murial of one of the love scenes on the ceiling, the whole room was painted black, kind of depressing after I while.I felt like I was in...

Coming from a hiking tour, we were still in our sports dress, when asking for a room at the reception. The receptionist was extremely friendly and very professional. She gave us a very good rate and a free up grade, as the hotel was not full. The Hotel is few minutes away from the Central station, the lake and the... More

This is a great little hotel find. First and foremost, for those of you coming by train, this hotel is only three blocks from the hotel so it is a quick walk to the hotel! Once you get to the hotel, you will be impressed. The lobby and restaurants are very nice! The rooms themselves are very nice. They are... More

Nice, small, cool centrally located boutique hotel. The design of each room is individual and unusual. Good amenities. Easy to reach old town, the famous bridge and Rosengaren Sammlung. Only bad thing is that it is quite costly given that breakfast is not included.

I am really surprised to read so many good reviews of this place. Perhaps I am the only one that paid a lot of money to stay here? The place is fine..but it is not 5 star, and it is not worth the money they ask for. The hotel boasts of being modern, but the furniture just looks cheap -... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel is a unique establishment exuding charm and charisma in Lucerne Switzerland. No two guest rooms are alike – and each has a tale to tell. They lean away from the familiar and the everyday. The art lies not so much in what is included but in what is left out. Guests are invited to abandon themselves to the inspirational poetry which characterises this sense-awakening boutique deluxe hotel. ... more   less
