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

The hotel is in an excellent location for visiting major attractions. It is only a 10 minutes walk from the main train station, which is ideal. It is also very easy to find. The room was small and we would have not wished to stay for a long time in this. However, it was well equipped, and had tea and... More

Lovely hotel on the river/lake of Luzern with spacious balcony. Minutes away to shops, restaurants, boats, trains and buses. Highly recommend this hotel and make sure you get a room with balcony as it so enhances the Luzern experience. A great day experience- take the boat to Vitznau and walk up to the 4 person gondola that takes you to... More

As someone who has traveled through Europe, I have seen my fair share of hotels,both good and bad. The Hotel Des Alpes exceeded every expectation I had and truly made this trip remarkable. The location is perfect as so accessible to everything, the staff if incredibly helpful and kind(especially Ingrid and Lorena!!) and the restaurant was the perfect way to... More

We loved the location of the Hotel but were disappointed with our room. We should have paid the extra to overlook the river but to be advised by the Hotel when we were making the booking that we would be overlooking the old town thought that for the price that it would be good enough. The view of the old... More

We booked this hotel based on the location & reviews on Trip Advisor. We requested a room overlooking the water. We had a very spacious room with a double balcony. The view was all spectacular. We were a little concerned that the room might be noisy due to the pedestrian area below. We found this room, located on the 5th... More
