This hotel is very conveniently located in old city minutes walking distance to the center of old town. There is a 9 storey parking lot across the hotel which makes it a great location for the ones with a car as parking is challenging in old town. Rooms are basic but still reasonably spacious. It is reasonably priced. The breakfast... More

My friends and I stayed here on the last night of our Europe trip last year. We arrived late close to 10pm and it was interesting how we had our check-in done at the bar area (not sure if this is what happens too when you arrive in the day though). The lift is very very small as what many... More

A very nice and cozy location for business or private events. We were there for a business apéro and rented the whole bar with our bunch of people. Drank some beautiful Spanish wine, not cheap but really excellent. The appetizers were created with a lot of fantasy, very special. Will definitely go there on a private mission quite soon. It...

Lucern CH-does not happen on the cheap (contrary to Echidna60 reviewer having a grouchy day and misplaced expectations; dude... really...). Hotel Stern is an excellent option in this Lucern old town premium prime location. Accommodations are simple but clean and adequate. Hotel Stern maintains old class character yet is renovated as best that can happen for a convenient park picturesque... More

Freaking fantastic location for its price. We know how astronomical prices are in Switzerland. This is a 2-star hotel. The furnishings are not exceptional at all, the bathroom has very minimal items, there is no kettle or mini-bar in the room. But we looked past all that as everyone working at this hotel are warm and friendly, and the location... More

Hotel Stern Luzern is a good option for the budget traveller considering the prices in Luzern. I stayed in a single room and it was clean and tidy and fairly comfotable. The location was great, only a few minutes walk to the main sights.The staff were friendly too.

Pros: clean and tidy, good location, church bells nearby are lovely, historic area and surrounding buildings are great. Cons: as mentioned by others in forum - small room with little storage, hilariously tiny lift, miniscule and airless bathroom, staff's personal communication and enthusiasm not a strength, check-in procedures seem to take back seat to restaurant / bar service - although...

Stern Luzern has good access to the old part of the city and is conveniently located from the key tourist attractions. However,it is a good 15 min walk from the main station. They appear to focus more on their restaurant business as opposed to running the hotel. The 'hotel' staff is available at the front desk only at a part... More

I stayed at Hotel Stern Luzern for 1 night. The hotel is stylish and renovated but it has been a guesthouse since 14th century, long history :) My double room is just next to the church. Yes, the church bell rang quarterly. I didn't' know if it still rings at night (fall asleep) but it did ring before midnight as... More

On arrival, the door is locked. They don't tell you that they usually admit through the adjoining street where their restaurant is. No Wi-fi. Took a while to get the owner and he couldn't log on either. Stayed three days and it never worked- they didn't seem too concerned. The room and breakfast was good. The church bell across the...
