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

We booked this hotel for it wonderful view of the bridge and yes its undoubtedly beautiful at night and in the day. You can also turn left and take some nice pictures of lake lucern. Also, its about 10minutes walk from the train station. However, the rooms are in need of a facelift, seriously. The carpets and furniture looked worn.... More

I would say this is the best located hotel in the city. Getting to it from the train station is easy as you can see it across the river the moment you step from the station, and it's just a brief 5 minute walk across the beautiful bridge to arrive; although check in is on the side away from the...

Do not stay in this hotel if you require parking. Parking as recommended by check in staff was a 15 minute walk away at the train station. We were able to drop our bags to the door of the hotel though. Parking costs for less than 48 hours was 86 CHF. This equates to over $100. I think TripAdvisor has... More

We had a wonderful time in Lucerne and staying right on the water at the wooden bridge gave us walking access to all the sights. The breakfast was amazing and the views out onto the mountains over the water were stunning!
