We stayed here a few nights in summer and used it as a base to see around Lucerne. We enjoyed our stay. the rooms were a bit small but adequate. usual stuff about carrying luggage upstairs which is common in Europe. the Breakfast was nice always. good choices. The room was a bit hot in the evening if the day... More

We were at Villa Maria for 2 nights in mid-August - since arrangements were made by someone else in our group, I didn't comparison shop and can't say if it was much cheaper than other places, but I did find it to be quite expensive. Maybe relative to other places in Lucerne at this time it was reasonable.... The owners... More

This is a lovely B&B in a great location, just outside of busy Lucerne. It is about a 15 minute walk from the train station along the lake. It is located on a busy two lane street so if your room is on that side of the building, there will be street noise. They provided ear plugs however and they... More

The Pension is located abt a 15-20 minute walk from main train station. You can take the 6 or 8 bus and it will drop you off two blocks from the Pension. Breakfast, which was a bit better than continental... Clean, bright room. Shared bathroom...but sink in the room. Staff was very friendly, welcoming and cooperative. They just put in... More

We stayed 2 nights in Pension Villa Maria, and chose it because it ticked all the boxes: it is well-reviewed on Trip Advisor, a budget option, and in a reasonably central location. We had a corner room on the first floor which was unfortunately incredibly noisy due to the traffic outside. We were aware that there were shared bathrooms, but... More

Reading the reviews just before we arrived I was quite worried about the shared bathroom (my husband made the booking) however was delighted to arrive to a room with a bathroom/toilet included (yay husband for booking it!). The gentleman on check in was very friendly and helpful offering up a map and general information without being asked. The room was... More

We stayed in the family room on the top floor with internal bathroom. This room was quiet overlooking the garden and had a lovely view of the lake. I think you experience may differ depending on the room type you book. For us, as a family, this was a cost efficient option compared to other hotels in Lucerne. Esp as... More

I was disappointed in this hotel. The noise was unbearable. The street noise was bad enough but what kept me up at night was the noise coming from other hotel guests. Since it was shared showers and toilets people were going in and out of their rooms and you could hear everything. The rooms were fine, the staff was great... More

Really good hosts and convenient location near the banks of the lake (though there is no lake view).....It is a convenient walk or a short bus ride away from the train station and boat station. On a day when we had to leave very early in the morning on our trip, we were given packed items for our breakfast kept... More

The room was very spacious and clean. The location was very quiet and next to the beautiful Lake Lucerne. The host was very friendly and the breakfast was lovely. It was about 15 minutes walk to the city centre. But you could take a bus right outside the hotel to town/train station. My complaints would be: 1. We found out... More
