Your Opinion on "The Hotel" Please

Hi Again,

I'm having a hard time trying to search for inputs in the forum for "The Hotel" in Lucerne. The name is too common or generic for the search function to find. The reviews are mostly from, ahem.., first time reviewers so I would appreciate anyone here with any input on the hotel since they are having a stay for 3 nights and pay only 2 promotion which will be perfect for us.

My questions are:

1. What is the location like since it looks as if it's near the train station on the new town side?

2. Any firsthand account for staying in their rooms with the picture on the ceiling?

3. Any other information?

Leaving next week for our trip so I appreciate any information on "The Hotel" and thank you in advance again!

I was never in this five star hotel. It is a building designed by Jean Nouvel, the famous french architect. Did you find theyre homepage? Here it is: http://www.the-hotel.ch/englisch/.

There are many reviews of this hotel (and not "only" first-timers at tripadvisor.com/…CHECK_RATES_CONT.

"The Hotel" is the only 5* in town that has availability for the weekend we want to go to Luzern but, like you, I am not convinced it is for us.

If you are young and hip then it is definitely worth trying, as Luzern is such a tricky town to find accommodation in, especially if you want or need air con.

They have special offers as you have discovered and they are very tempting but I wasn't quite brave enough to take the risk.

The ceilings would not be for us, anything else I would have given it a go !
