Given that everything in Lucerne is crazy expensive, the room with shared restroom here was a decent deal. However, our room was much more like a hostel and kind of dirty. It even looked like there was mold growing on the sink. The people at the front desk are very nice, and you might not be able to find a... More

A nice hotel with a great view. It is just along the river. The room is clean with basic amenities like shower with hot water, TV, hairdryer and room safe. It is pretty close to Luzern rail station about 15 minutes walk if you don't have to lug a lot of luggage. You can walk to many tourist attractions nearby... More

We stayed in room with public shower, its decoration is more like hostel which is fine with us. Breakfast is perfect with plentiful choice. Also friendly staff who share helpful advise for our Luzern trip. Highlight to the all day hot tea/coffee/snacks service, it's our saver to warm up body during changeable weather in Spring. Approx. 15mins, it's a good... 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
