Th location of this hotel is perfect. 5 mins walk to the train station and beautifully positioned on the lake With fantastic views of the Chapel bridge and surrounding area. I loved sitting and looking out the window over the water and mountains. Room was clean and modern although quite sparse with no fridge or telephone. No air conditioning although... More

Stayed at the Hotel Mr Pickwick along with Family & Friends in early July for 6 nights. This hotel is close to everything in Lucerne. Rooms were clean and comfortable with amazing views over Lake Lucerne and the chapel bridge with the backdrop of the mountains. The staff were truly amazing and nothing was too much too much trouble for... More

We stayed on the 2nd floor in a family room for four for two days. Unbeatable location and great views! One can walk down from the station or take a bus. Its just one stop away from Lucerne Bahnhof. Too many eateries along the waterfront, yet if one shuts off the room windows and balcony door, all the noise is... More

As a group of eight we spent six nights staying at Hotel Mr Pickwick. Had two double and two single rooms on fourth floor and one double room on third floor. Cannot speak highly enough of hotel location, views and the staff. If you are looking for a quiet getaway, then this hotel is not for you. If you are... More

Overall Hotel Mr. Pickwick is a very nice hotel. Our room was clean and modern. The view is worth the price of admission! The view of the river and bridge is amazing. The check-in process is a little strange as you check in at the bar of the pub on the main floor. They have an elevator which is nice.... More

Dear Courtney, Thank you very much for your positive review. The views are really from a postcard and we are proud to be able to offer our guests such a view from their bedroom window. The parking is common issue in old town location; we do try to offer a clear explanation on our website: " If you are arriving... More

We stayed 2 nights on family trip. A little odd since its above a pub a the wait staff at the pub do the check in/registration. The hotel room was simple, basic set up. Pros: amazing view of chapel bridge and waterfront right in front of you!!! Lots of magnetized doors to get in from back entrance, floor and rooms... More

Stayed here for 4 nights during my visit to Switzerland. The place is fantastic and you get an amazing view of Kapelbruecke from every room in the building, and what a view that is! The rooms are very clean and the staff are real friendly. The pub downstairs is nice but always packed with people. The hotel is also just... More

I don’t think you could get a better location in Lucerne. I was on the 4th floor, which I believe is the highest floor that has rooms, and the view was fantastic! I set an alarm each morning so I could watch the sunrise from my balcony. I booked a single room and the room suited my needs. It was... More

The hotel is on the riverfront, within spitting distance of the Kapellbrücke and an easy walk from the main Railway Station. The ground floor is a pub. The actual entrance to the hotel is on the side facing away from the river, but you can walk in to the pub and walk around. The staff were very friendly, and took... More
