It was perfect from the check-in to the check-out, and really made my stay in Luzern perfect. Stay here for true Swiss hospitality, charm, 100% safety, comfort, perfect location, and do not look anywhere else - you will not get a better deal, nor a more beautiful charming hotel, not even for more money. You will love the Wilden-Mann.
It is an 8 minute walk (with trolley-bag) along the River, from the Main Train Station. The walk itself is a treat as you see the old houses on both sides of the River, the postcard-perfect bridge, breathe in the fresh mountain air. It is a 100% safe route day and night (and I am a small lady). The train station is in the centre of town, and it is clean, has great take-away bakeries and shops in the underground passageways. In both cities Luzern and Zurich, the train stations were huge places, but at not time did they ever feel unsafe or undesirable like many train stations in European cities. The Swiss train stations are very impressive - and models for the rest of the US and Europe.
The hotel is pure charm, check-in was efficient and friendly, and they insisted on helping me with my small bag. My double room but just for myself (I asked for quiet room, and it was quiet without feeling isolated or ghostly ). It looked out the back to the next building which had charming window-box flowers, I loved it. It was freezing outside but inside the hotel it was cosy, and my room had adjustable temp control which in true Swiss form, worked perfectly (to my surprise). The bed and bedding (brililant duvet) was wonderful, the room was roomy, and bathroom impeccable. There was a desk fromting one of the windows, and a small table with cane chair where you can sit to have a cup of tea (complimentary self-serve on the landing outside the room - loads of teas to choose from) to thaw out if you've been out. TV is thoughtfully placed, not in a corner of the ceiiling to give you a headache, but at eye level at a good distance from the bed in an unobtrusive corner of the room.
Bathroom comes with bathrobe, slippers, and a good selection of Swiss shower gels, shampoo, etc. Not the cheap and nasty but good quality, nail file and buffer, bath salts.
My friend had a single room and it too was perfect, just a bit smaller with a single bed instead of a double. Really good value for the price, recommended without hesitation.
Breakfast is in spacious beautiful and also charming room, wide range of cold cuts, cheeses, breads, hot eggs and boiled organic eggs, toast, fruit - cooked and not, yoghurts, you name it they've got it. It was such a treat to see the welcoming breakfact each morning, served by the most gracious Swiss ladies.
The free internet desk is in a quiet alcove, comfortable chair, travel guides, free English newspapers (FT and IHT) and the computer works like super-broadband - perfect.
Location is perfect, close to everywhere, all walkable no more than 10 mins. Other guests staying were polite, looked well-to-do, middle-aged or older, Swiss, a group of Americans from a Forbes-500 having a retreat (morning session in one of the rooms). i.e. respectful fellow-travellers all grateful that they had chosen the Wilden-Mann.
As I said, this is the perfect hotel for travellers travelling without children. I stayed for 4 nights and wished I could stay for more. My friend felt the same. Book early, ask for a quiet room, and you will have an absolutely perfect stay in a beautiful city.
