4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A few minutes walk from the station, in the altstadt overlooking the Reuss river and the kapelbrucke. A perfect position, ideal for watching the passers by. A small but cut room, clean and well furnished. A lovely breakfast and lunch, but a disappointing dinner. Lovely staff. Hotel clean and well cared for. Don't hesitate.

We satyed for 3 nights. We had a room over looking the river and Chapel Bridge. The room and hotel is very clean and modern. The breakfast was very good. Worth the extra for river view. With the window open a little noisey. But close the window and no noise.

Des Alpes is very handy to train station - about an 8 minute walk. Step out of train station, look across the river to the left and you will see Hotel des Alpes in writing at top of Hotel. We easily walked to the hotel with our 50+ pound roller bags and back packs. While the hotel is handy to... More

We arrived in Lucerne on the train. Rolled our luggage across the bridge to the hotel (probably about 5-10 minute walk). Difficult to roll over the cobblestones, but we made it! Very helpful staff. The room was okay. Beds were comfortable. No air conditioning; fan provided. Our room overlooked the square which was noisy, but when the windows were closed... More

This hotel, if you get a river view is perfect. It is close to the train station, easy 5 minute walk. The river view rooms give the guest a wonderful view of Chapel Bridge, Reuss River and the fabulous mountains but beware, the rooms are situated above the outdoor dining area, the outdoor dining area in good weather will bring...

This review should be in between average/ good but there isn't the facility. It is as many have said a tight squeeze here but the aspect and location by far make up for that. Our room was on the small side starting to look a little tired we were overlooking the square at the back which could be a little... More

We stayed in a triple river facing room with a balcony in mid June for two nights. The room was quite large and clean. The bathroom was a bit on the smaller side but spotlessly clean. Tea, Coffee making facility available in the room along with a fan which we didn't need as it was cool when we were there.... More

The hotel is well-placed, right on the river Reuss, close to the main tourist attractions. The main areas of the hotel have been nicely renovated, in an hotel that does not have much space due to its location and age. The bedroom we had was in need of renovation. (Bathroom had been renovated). Breakfast was slightly above average for a... More

The Hotel des Alpes is ideally located -- just a 5-minute walk from the train station and right in the heart of the Old Town. It's as scenic a hotel as you will find, right next to the famous Chapel Bridge and with a gorgeous view of the river and mountains. The rooms were fairly small, but the bathrooms are... More

Sometimes, when I read a negative review on here, I wonder whether the problem is really the hard-to-please reviewer. Please note my profile which includes a review-set that is overwhelmingly positive. In other words, I'm pretty easy to please. However... There are tons of places in Lucerne with lake or river views. I picked this one because they had river... More
