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.

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

Choosing the right location when you have never been to a city can be hard. In the case of Mr. Pickwick's it was the best choice. The hotel is within walking distance of the train/bus depot and right on the lake. We walked to all the Luzerne sights we wanted to see. We were also within walking distance of the... More

This was an easy walk with all of our baggage from the train station and boat docks. It is on the water directly across from Chapel Bridge with a view of My Pilatus, Gutch Castle, and surrounding Alps. From here we walked the entire town, along the wall, up to the clock tower and to the Lion of Lucerne monument... More
