Rooms are small, but awesome view from a vantage point in the city. The breakfast is quite good and offer a good selection. They have parking which is bit down from the hotel.The location is bit away from the hustle-bustle of the city but near to main attractions.

Starting with being able to check in early, to the helpful and friendly service when checking in, this hotel has some of the best service I've seen in a long time. The hotel decor is a bit dated but it's very clean and you can see how this hotel was big in its day. My room had a balcony overlooking... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in early October. We had a triple room for 3 adults. The room was basic but had a nice view of the lake. We didn't hit the best weather as it was foggy in the morning & we barely saw the sun. The lobby and breakfast area as well as patio was... More

We stayed at the Royal for 2 nights on a guided tour, the views were spectacular and the main town is a short walk away but unfortunately that is where the positives end. The rooms were small and we had 2 camp beds end to end, the breakfast was all cold even the boiled eggs and if you wanted toast... More

We had booked a triple room that had nothing else in the room except beds, a desk, a small TV, and clean linens and towel. The bathroom was inadequately tiny and shower stall was made up of vinyl curtain that goes around the drain. Breakfast was below par. Overall disappointing stay for the price I paid, I would've picked one... More

I stayed here for two weeks in July/ August for business. My room was a single and one of the few that have not been updated for a while. However, the view from the balcony was beautiful and the staff are extremely welcoming and helpful. The location is a short walk into town. Overall I had a great stay and... More

The room is fairly small. However, it has fabulous view from the balcony. The breakfast food needs to be improved. The location is not in the center of the city and there are not many public transportation between the city center and the hotel (only cab). The wifi is also not free and it is ab it pricey.

After a busy day of visiting the Rhine Falls and a cheese factory in Stein, we were pleased to see our hotel, the Royal, in Lucerne. Rooms were neat and comfortable, each with a balcony and the lobby area was quite beautiful. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the food was excellent. While we didn't have time to explore...

We were very fotunate to get a room facing the lake. Spectacular view. The room was quite small and only single beds on offer but that was ok.everything was clean and the room was serviced each day. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was only a short 10 mins walk to town. I would not hesitate to come... More

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
