If you are going to spring for a room with a view Hotel des Alpes is a great place to do so. We were on the 5th floor overlooking the lake, which gave us a "take a step back in time" feeling every time we stepped onto our small balcony. All about the location at this hotel; room was small,... More

Least favorite of the 5 hotels we stayed in on our 2-week trip to Switzerland. Why? - uninformed and somewhat disinterested hotel reception staff, tiny bathroom with no ammenities other than bathwash, incredibly difficult to use hair dryer, difficult to get to with a car (added $120 cf to our cost to park 3 days at the train station!). Since... More

My wife found this hotel based on comments from TripAdvisor. The location was in the old town in easy walking distance of the train station and restaurants and a reasonable price in Swiss francs pricing terms (everything is expensive in Switzerland). The room was small but adequate. We ate in the restaurant on the balcony with a great meal and... More

Situated in the heart of city and 5 min walk from station and boat tours station, its great hotel to enjoy the beauty of Lucern. Rooms were very good, clean and bigger than most of European style hotels. Amenities and furniture were good. Staffs were also very friendly with happy to help attitude. the main tourist attraction (Kapellbrücke - Wooden... More

Hotel des Alpes is in a prime location (easy 5 minute walk from the train station & right across the Chapel Bridge!) and the staff is so helpful. The room and bathroom was incredibly clean and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious and a great way to start the day! My cousins and I went paddle-boating twice and would highly... More

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.
