What a wonderful place to stay; you really cannot ask for a better place to stay while in Luzern. It sits right on the river, as well as right in front of the bi-weekly markets and close enough to just about everything to walk there. Coming in from Zurich, we walked two blocks from the train station to the hotel.... More

Incredible hotel. Prime location overlooking the river in the center of the city. Fantastic room. Didn't try the restaurant because there were so many options around. Staff was friendly but not overly. I would have like a bit more enthusiasm. Nonetheless, this was an excellent hotel experience.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights from 6/24-6/26 as part of our honeymoon. We arrived by train and were happy to see the hotel from the train station and it was a quick 3 minute walk to the hotel. We had a room on the 3rd floor with a great view of the bridge and river. There... More

We stayed in the Hotel des Alpes - we had a double and a triple with adjoining balconies over looking the bridge and river. Beautiful!

We stayed here in June 2008 for 2 nights and loved this hotel. Make sure you get a room with a view of the river and mountains because you get a nice balcony that is great to sit on at night. The staff was really friendly and the location was excellent! Would definitely stay at again

My husband and I enjoyed two greats days at the hotel. We spent the extra $50 to enjoy the views of the lake which was definitely worth it! We were in room 456 and had a full balcony which was covered. We spent both evenings sitting outside taking in the view. Breakfast was served out on the balcony as the... More

Have just returned from a three-night stay at this hotel, and, despite the many positive reviews on TripAdvisor, was disappointed with the property. My guess is that positive or negative responses to this hotel are very dependent on the room assigned to the guest. I booked a "double room for a single person," and my confirmed reservation guaranteed a room... More

This is a very friendly hotel, all the staff were very helpful. The location is handy for arriving by boat or train, and right in the heart of the old town. Breakfast is good, and when the weather is fine (which it was for us!) you can sit on the balcony enjoying views of the river and the mountains whilst... More

We stayed at the Hotel Des Alpes for 3 nights in the beginning of April 2008 and have no complaints. We took the train from Zurich Airport to Lucerne, and walked about 7 minutes across the bridge to the hotel with our luggage. The staff was courteous, the internet access was cheap, and the rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet.... More

A lovely hotel in a great location. We arrived by train and it is an easy 10 minute walk. We booked the basic rooms at the back of the hotel and were given rooms 459 and 460. To our surprise both had a large patio outside overlooking the old town. Fortunatly the weather was warm enough for us to use... More
