Loved our room especially the updated bathroom. Location was 10-15 minutes to train station. So close to everything you want to do and see in Lucerne. This was our base and we always felt like we were coming home after our day outings around Switzerland. We looked forward to the great buffet breakfast every morning and it was so nice... More

Loved this place. Was a bit of a hike from the train station, but we loved the walk through Lucerne. Upon arriving, we were greeted by Jim. What a friendly chap he was! He showed us to the elevator...tiny, tiny elevator. Only two of us with our bags could fit in. Our room was actually two rooms...two beds right when... More

My family of 5 stayed in the large suite, which was good for us. The included kitchen didnt have any equipment, but there were plenty of places nearby to eat. The included breakfast was quite good. The location was OUTSTANDING. Parking and unloading were not easy, but doable.

When we first walked in the door, the woman on reception was expecting us (although we arrived a little early) and was so warm and friendly. There was no problem with us having the room early and she was most helpful with suggestions of where to eat and things to see and do that would interest our children. We stayed... More

We had a wonderful room, kind of small but perfect for us. There was a bedroom with a door and then another room with two twin beds and television. Nice, updated bathroom. Very clean. Close to the covered bridge and on a really nice street. Parking was down the street but that was not a problem since we were walking... More

We stayed here for 1 night in October at the end of our 9 days in Switzerland Our first impression of the hotel from the outside was not good, but don't be put off by this. The staff in reception were friendly and helpful. Our twin share room had been refurbished, very clean with the most comfortable beds we had... More

This is a great hotel within easy walking distance of all the inner city attractions and shopping in Lucerne. Excellent value for money. The rooms and facilities have all just been upgraded, so they are wonderfully clean and modern. The staff are very helpful and friendly.

The location of Tourist hotel was very good, overlooking the river and within 5 mins easy walk of the CBD and train station. Without making a booking in Lucerne we visited the information centre at railway station, they suggested we try this hostel. A room with a double bunk on the first floor was available with shared female and shared... More
