We stayed just one night. The hotel has a great location. We had a noisy room in which we could hear the neighbours comung and going during the night, cleanliness could be improved, old style furniture. Good for a very short stay

Hotel is located within 2 blocks of the train station, directly on the lake and historic chapel bridge. We had a top floor balcony, so views of the lake and mountains were beautiful. The hotel is located on a pedestrian street, so we never noticed any noise at all. The room was larger than many European hotels. The room and... More

We were told at 9:55 that the buffet would be cleared. One would expect a bit more tolerance. Being on time in this respect is just bloody rude! Also, for the premium price, the buffet was meagre. I would not recommend this hotel.

This hotel is in a perfect position, on the edge of the water by the Chapel Bridge. We walked from the train station which was one of the reasons for our choice. As a family of 4 we had 2 rooms, a double and a twin. The bathrooms were clean and modern, although the one in the twin room was... More

I stayed at Hotel Des Alpes over Christmas and found it to be a lovely older property. The location was right next to the Chapel Bridge, two blocks from the train station and the entrance to the hotel is one block into the old town pedestrian area. Tour boats leave from a dock next to the train station. Round trip... More

This hotel is along the river and has a nice view of the chapel bridge. Some of the rooms have a balcony. Breakfast was good with smoked salmon, eggs, cold cuts, cereals and bread. It took us about 5-10 minutes to get to the hotel from Luzern station. The rooms are quite small though.

For the second successive Christmas we stayed at this very pleasant hotel, this year extending our stay by an extra week. Good food, especially the breakfast buffet. A very good Christmas Day evening meal and not a turkey in sight! Rooms warm, bright and with a balcony and glorious view of the river, lake and Chapel Bridge. Good maid service... More

I stayed at this Hotel for one night and throughly recommend it. I had a single room overlooking the chapel bridge and the view was amazing. I couldnt sit outside because it was snowing, but it would be lovely in summer. I would amagine it would be quite noisy , as there are quite a few eating places along the... More

We only stayed here for one night in late Sept., but we were very pleased. Location was great and at night everything looked beautiful all lit-up. We enjoyed the evening sitting on our balcony with a bottle of wine. The train station or down town shopping is all right there and take just a couple of minutes to walk to.... More
