Thank you for the hospitality of the staffs and the owner. We drove from Germany to Lucerne and we had some problems during our trip so I called to inform the hotel that we would arrive the hotel around 10 pm. We were informed that the check in time was till 10 pm. and he would place a room key... More

Three adults stayed here quite comfortably. Our room had a double and a single bed and appeared recently remodeled. After tiny showers in Paris, this room's shower seemed huge. The location is perfect and even though we did not have a river view, our room looked at a walking trail, some gardens and homes. The only downside is the walls... More

We had a fabulous stay at the hotel. We were expecting a small 2-bedr apartment and they gave ud the spacious 3 bedr apartment. Great location. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff that gave us great restaurant and child friendly location and activity advice! It contributed to a great snow experience for my 3 and 5-yr old!

Right in front of the river, a great option to explore the highlights of Luzern. Good acommodations - the suit was very big and cozy (even for five people) and had communication with a private garden. Also, low cost if you compare with others. I recommend.

just spent 3 nights at this Hotel, friendly service, great breakfast and a great value for money. Hotel is located along the River just a short walk from the city for shopping as well for walks around the old city walls. We really enjoyed our stay and we recommend

I stayed at this place again after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. I must say hands down this has to be one of the best places I stayed in Switzerland. For starters the lovely receptionist upgraded us to an executive suite without us even requesting it at no extra cost. The view from balcony of the town was breathtaking. Secondly... More

Located slightly away from the train station, it will not take much efforts to locate it. Was given a room that was slightly run down, probably still going through renovation for the rest of the hotel. Room was clean and comfortable but feels more like a hostel setup. 2 lady staff at the reception were very helpful, particularly Ms Elizabeth.... More

We were in Lucerne for 3 nights and decided on this hotel after reading reviews on trip advisor. We had heard Switzerland was pricey (and it was), and chose this hotel, in part, due to it's good rates. We enjoyed our stay very much. It was VERY clean, with good size bathrooms and large shower. The hotel had a modern,... More

This hotel has been nicely renovated with comfortable beds and adequate storage. We had a balcony overlooking the river which we enjoyed very much. Breakfast was plentiful. We found the location to be both quiet and convenient, which are sometimes mutually exclusive, but not here. Walkable from the train station, but you will be rolling suitcases over cobblestones and up... More

We stayed in this hotel with my family for 2 nights aiming to visit Luzern. the hotel is very well situated as the city is little and everything is quite close. In general it was very clean, but the design of the floors and the rooms makes you feel like in school campus or hospital. The breakfast was fine, you... More
