My wife and I stayed at Hotel des Alpes for 1 night in May 2015 and loved every second of it! Terrific location in the old town right on the water, friendly staff, clean and comfortable room, and spectacular scenery. We only had one night in Luzern so we spent a little extra for the view room with private balcony... More

We had 2. Nights here. It's right on the river and opposite the famous medieval bridge. We would certainly recommend this place. From here you can easily walk to all the best things Lucerne has to offer.

Location is to die for.. i would suggest you to take a lake facing room so you can watch everything from your balcony without having to step a foot outside. The rooms were small and cozy, the food in the restaurant was very good. my only gripe with this hotel is the breakfast which had very little options. free wifi... More

Stayed here a couple of nights and it really is in a good spot. We were unlucky and had fog for most of our stay but the day we left we had amazing views of the surrounding mountains. The staff here are really helpful. It is an easy 5 minute walk from the train station and not difficult like some... More

When I saw pictures of Hotel Des Alps before booking, what I loved was the view to the Kappelbridge and proximity to old town. Well, the view was certainly one of the best, right overlooking this old and charming bridge, and the hotel practically in old town. It's one of the best locations for sure in Lucerne, less than a...

This hotel is right on the Reuss River, which is a great convenient location. Tram/bus stations are nearby, although you can walk to almost all of the attractions. It's walking distance to the old town streets for shopping/boutique stores, and you can go out and immediately see the wonderful view of the River, lake and the Chapel Bride. The train... More

We have had a two night stay in this fantastic location. An historic building in a location over looking the lake and bridge. Shout yourself the river view with balcony you won't be disappointed. The rooms may be a bit smallish but perfectly adequate. Large bed with spotless linen ( would have liked a spare pillow in the cupboard). New... More

This hotel is located in a Swiss storybook setting located in the heart of the historic pedestrian part of Lucerne adjacent to the beautiful wooden chapel bridge. Although we arrived by car we found that you can enter the pedestrian area and navigate your way through the cobblestone lanes and pedestrians to drop off your bags. Parking though was a... More

Lucerne is a beautiful city with lots of markets and a good historical feel about it. This was our first stop over since arriving from Australia. We initially viewed it as just a recovery place but actually found lots to do and would have liked to stay longer. We found the Hotel des Alpes in a great location beside the... More
