The Royal Hotel has been in the same family now for the third generation! A classical style Swiss grey-stone building,all the rooms have balconies, and many of the rooms have fabulous views of the lake, Mt. Pilatus and the landscapes of central Switzerland. Many rooms have been updated, and while not especially luxurious are well equipped with everything the traveller... More

We were three ladies in need of a triple room, and this Hotel was perfect. The Hotel is family run, spotless clean with excellent service. The lobby is beautiful and decor charming. Breakfast was delicious, with a good selection of cold items plus eggs to order. Our room had a small balcony facing the lake, and the view was just... More

The hotel has a great location, it is a little off the main tourist strip so quieter than some of the hotels in the old town, but the views are spectacular. we were in room 41 (i think), and i think we had the best view in the city from our balcony. The room was a decent size, and they... More

We stayed here for one night only. Parking was straightforward having pre-requested it, but better to drop off luggage outside the rear entrance as the roads are quite narrow and steep. The staff in Reception on arrival/departure were very friendly, helpful and multi lingual - which helps! The location is just a few minutes pleasant walk ( 10 minutes?) from... More

We immediately liked the Hotel Royal. It had a welcoming lobby area and an expansive front porch with beautiful geraniums and appealing furniture. The staff were both friendly and attentive. While we missed not having a safe in our room we were pleased that we could put our passports in a large sealed envelope which was subsequently placed in the... More

Once we settled in, we were fine. Upon arriving at the train station, we took the tram and hauled our bags up the hill to the hotel in hot temperatures. Should have taken taxi from train station, got situated and then tram after that which is easily accessible at the bottom of the hill. With no AC, we kept our... More

My wife and I were part of a tour on Globus and we did not pick this hotel - they picked it for us. There's a reason why it's empty. I felt the guy (an elderly man who was at the elevator) was a bit rude to me as he pushed me away from the elevator buttons and kept saying... More

First impression was an old hotel needed upkeeps. But when entering the room everything was fine. They must have renovated the rooms. They were new, bright, roomy, and comfortable. But don’t expect any frills. You have nothing except a clean, pleasant room. Get a room with the lake view balcony. It’s worth it. I had one at the end of... More
