I returned to this delightful Hotel after a two year absence.The Hotel continues to maintain exceptionally high standards throughout! The bedrooms are pristine clean with ensuite,mini bar and wall mounted television.There are two bottles of water available on arrival free of charge,a nice gesture. There is a copious breakfast of juices,cereals,cold meats,rolls ,croissants,etc etc.The new innovation is that you are... More

This is a good hotel and the breakfast was great. Our initial room for 3 people was on the very top floor looking out it was ok but sooooo hot we couldn't open windows and it was stuffy. I spoke to a staff member and he was so helpful and the next day we changed rooms. The staff are awesome... More

We had chosen to stay in Lucerne as friends of ours lived nearby and we wanted to spend some time with them as well as see some sights and celebrate our wedding anniversary. On arriving outside the hotel, my heart sank. It was overlooking an exceptionally busy road that was heaving with tourists and had an unattractive exterior. However, I... More

We stayed here for 5 days, the Hotel is perfect for visiting Lucerne and offers good sized rooms, very friendly staff and a nice continental breakfast that you can eat as much as you like at. Also free coffee is available all day - great value when you see how much it is in a local café. The lift works... More

A quiet hotel near the city centre. Convenient to the 'old town' and to the north of the river. Within walking distance of the station. Rooms of good but not generous size. Very clean, modern bedrooms with good sized bathrooms. Comfortable mattresses. Good quality breakfast with plenty of choice included in our tariff.

Just a few minutes from the lake, next door to a shopping centre, walking distance from Station. Nice breakfast buffet with cold meats, cheeses , various breads jams and cereals. They don't allow you to use a travel kettle in your room but you may get hot drinks all day from the breakfast room

The hotel is very central and in the midst of all the action at lucerne...However the rooms are extremely small, there is no kettle in the room...tea and coffee can be had at the coffee machine at the reception which means you cannot get it in the room....the staff is disinterested and cold and only interested in checking in or...

The rooms are very small and all of them are twin bedded room (atleast that's what we were told) On first day we did not have enough heating in the room and the... More

A beautiful walk from the train station along Lake Lucerne takes to you this adorable boutique hotel located exactly where you want to be, in the heart of Lucerne.

Hello thank you for your nice review. We are glad you had enjoyed your stay with us and our city of Lucerne. Yes we are sorry; Switzerland is generally expensive due to the currency exchange rate. Even so we are pleased you had a good time. Hopefully you can make it back sometimes. With best Regards Ferdinand Zehnder and the... More
