My wife and I stayed 3 nights at this hotel recently. The location is unbeatable, facing the river and the Jesuit Church. Our 4th Floor river-facing room was very spacious and was very tastefully furnished in a modern style. Standing on the balcony, overlooking the river and historic buildings, was an unforgettable experience. The hotel is really central, and is perfectly placed. It is housed in a beautiful historic building, which itself is a landmark in Lucerne. Breakfast was good. The experience of having a drink at the terrace outside, with swans swimming up close to you, was fabulous. I would however suggest that the hotel provides complimentary transportation from the train station (which is very near), so as to avoid guests having to pay ridiculously high taxi fares or having to lug their baggage themselves. Incidentally, no assistance is offered with your baggage when you check-in and check-out, unless you specifically ask for it, which is disappointing considering the stature of the hotel.
