This Hotel is very well located in the old city almost close to everything. The train station is walking distance from the hotel. Excellent view from the room. The food prepared in the pub below was very tasty and well prepared. The only downside for us was that the pub was extremely crowded in the evenings, but I suppose it... More

Centrally located. Walking distance to train station and main attractions. Wi-fi worked well. We had room 101. Room over looked bridge. Pub directly below hotel. Bartender quickly checked us in. Room was extremely clean, although very small. Two twin beds, end to end. Comfortable with necessary amenities. If you need quiet to sleep, do not have a room on first... More

Stayed here for a week, great location in the heart of things, literally just across the bridge from the station and with nearby shops and restaurants. The view from the room was stunning, overlooking "Kapellbrücke" wooden bridge and with snow covered mountains towering above the city. The hotel was excellent value for money by local standards, keeping in mind that... More

Reserved in last minute, we were positively surprised about this hotel. The location is great! No reception but who cares. Rooms modest but tidy and confortable. Quiet area and real city center, view on the river and wooden bridge. They accept dogs and there was no additional charge. Nice pub downstairs with nice fish and chips. We liked it and... More

Great location on the water! Very friendly employees. Easy walk from train station. Pub is convenient. I thought things were a little pricey until I found out that's just Switzerland!!! Overall great place with great views!

Probably the best located hotel in the old town area of Lucerne. You have a great, buzzing pub downstairs. Awesome view of the river, mountains & bridge from the room. The rooms are laid vertical, which means the beds are not next to each other but in a straight line. This hampers prior to sleep conversations & other such stuff.... More

This hotel was in an excellent location - close to the main station and attractions like the Lion Monument. The room was clean and comfortable. Excellent views of the river and Kapellbrücke. Affordably priced.

This is a friendly well placed hotel and pub for city life experience. Rooms are clean and beds are very comfortable. My room was at the front on the first floor. Unfortunately it was a warm night but I couldn't open my windows as the noise and smoke from the tobacco addicts flooded in. Loud music pounded through my room... More

We were really thrilled with this hotel as part of our travel plans. The room had a balcony looking onto the river and the Kapelbrucke. Lovely view of snow-capped mountains in the morning and the room was a really generous size. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again if opportunity arose.

Passing through so only stayed one night. Near the railway station and easy to find. Next to covered bridge so very central. We stayed in room 304 with a great view of covered bridge. when you walk in you literally walk in to a pub and have to grab the attention of bar staff. Once you in your key gives... More
