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

This is a great place for many reasons. My main requirements with any hotel is that the room is clean and quiet. The Tourist Hotel gets high marks in those areas. It is right on the river, close to numerous restaurants and attractions. Our room had a balcony with an amazing view overlooking the river. The bathroom was spacious by... More

This hotel is only a short walk from the train station and is in a wonderful location near the center city and the bridges. Elisabeth at the front desk gave us helpful hints on which boat ride to take and what time it left the dock. She also was most helpful in getting some laundry done as we had already... More

A very good location as it stands near the bridges. Not really a fancy hotel but it has a very helpful personnel, a good breakfast and some discounts (the most useful is on a boat cruise on the lake if you fancy it but there is also something on souvenirs shops). Definitely value for money. Not suggested if you want... More

Very clean, good location and ample accommodation. Breakfast is delicious, lot of choices and staff at front desk is extremely helpful. They loaned us jackets when they found our we had none to go to Jungfraujoch! We were a big group with a lot of children and they were very accommodating.
