Lucerne was the first stop of our vacation and I couldn't be more please with this hotel! Easy to find from the train station and quick to get to. Amazing location by the river, in the old town and a short walk away from the lake where the boat tours are. We were able to check in early. Friendly and... More

You can't do better position wise in Lucerne. We walked a very easy 10 minute stroll with luggage from the train station. We could stroll to the ferries and we were in the heart of Old Town with many restaurants and shops. Actually this hotel is almost a tourist destination in itself as the outside of the hotel is covered... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of our rail trip through the alps it was the pick of the hotels we stayed in, it has a great location. If you get a front facing room the view is of the lake and the chapel bridge which is superb. The hotel is a short walk from the railway station and... More

We really liked this hotel. The staff were so congenial and pleasant! The location, right on the river in the old town, was perfect! It is an easy walk to the train station, to the boats that do the lake tours and to the city bus terminal. Breakfast, which is included in the room rate, was excellent! Guests will find... More

We had 2 nights here and were more than happy with our choice. Rooms were very comfortable. Lucky to have a balcony room overlooking the lake. Breakfast had everything you could want. Restaurant downstairs was great with a good atmosphere and great food. We loved Lucerne and glad we stayed at Des Alpes.

We stayed a night here and had a great time. The room was a little small, but clean and well appointed. The staff were very helpful and spoke good English. The view from the room of the lake and bridges made it special. The breakfast had a good selection although I couldn't get an egg past soft boiled. A little... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel des Alpes, we had a balcony overlooking the river, covered bridge and pedestrian walkway, and it was well worth the extra few dollars for the view. The room was large, comfortable and had good internet connection. The breakfast buffet had a good choice to satisfy all. We would definitely return the next... More

The hotel is situated in the best part of Lucerne, easy walking distance from the train. Staff were most helpful and friendly. Needed Swiss adaptor and had trouble with internet in lobby and nothing was too much trouble. The included breakfast is good and I appreciated a kettle with coffee and tea in the room. Although room was small it... More

Our visit to Lucerne this year included another stay in the Hotel des Alpes. This was out 3rd stay here. The hotel still doesn't disappoint. The location is its best asset. We enjoyed a river view room again with a small balcony. The floors were a little creaky but this is an old building. The bathroom is modern and clean... More

Always prefer balcony with chapel lake view & i bet after opening your balcony door ((lol balcony door opening is tricky )) to view the scene you will feel that you got all your money back when you paid for hotel stay. Room & bathroom is not very spacious but decent for couples & i believe thats not what you... More
