Rooms are very clean and the entire staff has been friendly and helpful.The rooms are typical Swiss small, but very cute with all the expected amenities - minibar, safe, robes, flat screen TV, etc. The bed was incredibly comfortable. Would definitely stay again.

I stayed here for two nights in February 2015 in a single room. The hotel was a short walk from the station and easy to find. The staff, from my arrival to the time I left were polite and helpful, offering to take my suitcase to my room, asking if I needed anything. The waitress at breakfast was very friendly... More

Great staff and accommodations. My husband had business's here and we were here for pleasure Just off the Main Street. Very quiet with very helpful and friendly staff. The breakfast was the most amazing food. The best of all Amy travels on this trip. If you have a room above the second floor there is no elevator. We had the... More

We stayed only for a couple of nights, but we were greeted by the waitress then the manager of the hotel as soon as we walked through the door. The lady manager/owner was just lovely, she offered to carry my suitcase up just the few stairs we had to use& and gave us a big massive room!. The waitress at... More

It is located in a perfect neighborhood, so you will be in a walk distance of everything you have to see in Lucerne old town. The staff were amazing and the breakfast quite good. The room was comfortable, but the beds a bit softer than I'm used to. It is certainly a nice choice to stay in Lucerne!

I always try to find family run hotels and not chains. This hotel has a fantastic location just a block from the lake and about three blocks from the Lion Monument. Quiet street - wonderful church bells ringing in the time. Quirky art work lining the walls --- our room had a baptismal font in it! Lovely staff - Julia... More

Very convenient position just one block back from the lake and the room rates are that much less as a result. Excellent hotel with nice rooms and quirky artwork. Staff very helpful and very professional. Breakfast good and the dinner we had was excellent. We were in a roof room with lots of stairs to climb but spacious. Limited toiletries... More
