A very very well located place to stay. Just above the Saturday food market. The whole sopping area is within easy walking distance. Excellent breakfast and friendly staff in the restaurant and at the reception. We stayed in river facing room and it was just fantastic.

Spent two nights in Hotel des Alpes in late November (not the best mountain views then because it is cold and foggy) The location next to the Chapel wooden walking bridge, seen in most pictures of Lucerne, is perfect -- especially if you pay the higher price for a balcony. Hotel is old European style and room was somewhat worn... More

The Hotel is in a great location and the rooms with balconies overlooking the Chapel Bridge and the Alps in the other direction across Lake Lucerne is very nice.The room although not large is clean and comfortable and the breakfast was very good. Front desk staff attentive and polite.

We spent three nights at Hotel des Alpes in Lucerne, in late September - early October, 2014. Is the perfect location to stay when visiting Lucerne. The hotel sits right on the river, at one end of the famous Kapellbrucke (Chapel Bridge), and rooms facing the river have a view of the Kapellbrucke from their rooms. We had the perfect... More

This time I stayed at Hotel Des Alpes which is on the edge of Old Town and right by the old wooden walking bridge (local top attraction) by the lake. The staff at the hotel were all extremely helpful, brakfast room is indeed... More

Rooms are bit small but not that small. Location is very good. Breakfast is ok, they can have few more choices. Staff is helpful, some of them can smile though :-). Overall, good place to stay in Lucerne for few days. Tip: go gor the lake view rooms

Very nice hotel, friendly staff and amazing location. I only spent one night but I had a great experience and will definitely choose it again for my future visits in Lucerne. They also suggested one of the cheapest parkings in the city making me save plenty of money.

We visited this hotel for a one night stop over when travelling back from Italy on our way to Zurich Airport. We wanted a hotel near the station with a good view and it matched all of our expectations. It's a short walk across the bridge from the station, close enough to be convenient yet far enough not to be... More

Found the staff to be friendly, the room clean, and an easy walk with luggage from the train station. Great views of the river and Chapel Bridge. The Old Town is right at your door step. Would stay here again when in Lucerne.

Pleased with our choice of hotel, for the view and the central position. We came from Zurich by train, so we wanted a hotel very close to the station. Ideal base for taking part in the Lucerne Marathon, and for watching it.
