“A Good Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

If there was something between average and very good I would have picked that. The Ibis Styles is a clean, comfortable hotel within walking distance of the train station (like everything else in Luzern). It is quite near the Lion Monument (which I am surprised isn't mentioned more often in reviews or on the hotel's website). (The Lion Monument is one of the "must see" attractions of Luzern -- it takes only a few minutes to visit and it is a short walk from the Ibis Styles Luzern.)

I stayed here before when it was NH Hotel. Breakfasts were better then but they are not bad now. The rooms are the same -- some have balconies.

There is a movie theatre across the street (the Bourbaki) where the upstairs bar sometimes hosts fun events, such as tango dancing on Sunday nights. Go in and ask, and don't worry if you don't speak German. The public library is also upstairs in that building . . . if you go visit that check out the used book and CD selection. It's not always great but every now and then you can find a treasure.

The hotel is fine. There are sometimes long lines in front when tour groups check in but come back in five minutes and they're gone. Free internet in the rooms and a computer in the lobby if you need it. Staff is friendly and helpful. I've stayed here before and will stay here again.

funny title eh! but one look at the interiors of this place and you'll know what i'm talking about. enter it and you're greeted by bright green and white coloured walls. the guys at the desk wear happy purple coloured t-shirts and always seem to be smiling. enter the rooms and the same bright green and white colour theme follows you. but hang on, there's more colour - brightly coloured chairs and side tables just add to the happiness.

the room is not too big but then again it's not too small either. the nice part about this hotel is that the rooms have balconies. their not too big and you can peek over the on one on the side but at least it's a balcony. and it's big enough for around 3-4 adults to stand comfortably. the view is nothing to write home about but then again as i said - a balcony in a hotel that's not too expensive - in switzerland is nice. more than nice, even.

the bathroom has a tub with shower head right on top. efficient use of space, i'm thinking.

the room was clean and is cleaned everyday. the nice thing that accor (the parent company that owns the ibis brand) has is a green initiative wherein you have an option of reusing your towels. this helps save water and ultimately our planet. now doing this is not too hard especially since luzern like every other swiss city is extremely clean and chances of you getting dirty and muddy are very slim.

this hotel comes with breakfast included in the room rate - so that's good. no hassles or added expenses of paying extra for breakfast. the spread is ok. around 4 types of cold cuts, 4 types of cheeses, cereal, eggs, tea, coffee, toast. the eggs are hard boiled though. and if you want them scrambled they charge an extra 10 euros. bloody hell. 10 euros for just scrambling my eggs. give me my eggs hard boiled any day.

the ibis styles is about a ten minute walk from the luzern station which is good if you have an early train to catch. it is also about 10 minutes from the old town. which i must add is so bloody beautiful. finally it is about 3 minutes to lake luzern.

the hotel has free wi-fi in the rooms and there's a pc in the reception area if you don't have a laptop.

so that's about it. a clean, safe, colourful hotel that's not too expensive.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the higher floors. the view from the balcony is better.

This is a well located and convenient chain hotel 1 min. walking from a bus stop and 5 min. walking from the lake shore promenade and the old town in Lucerne. It may be Accor branded yet the team endeavors to provide a personal and welcoming lodging experience. Rooms may vary in size yet they are all recently refurbished and show a charming modern look.

We stayed at this hotel for one night while driving across Switzerland.
The main attraction of the hotel is its proximity to the lake and the old bridge - it is literally less than a 10-minute walk to all the restaurants along the lake.
The hotel feels very child-friendly, with a kids area in the (small) lobby.
Our room was really tiny and crowded but with comfy beds. The main drawback was the lack of air conditioning - it was a very hot day when we stayed in August and with only a small fan provided, we had to sleep with open windows (letting both light and noise in unfortunately).
Breakfast was quite reasonable with a good choice of food.
You can park easily around the hotel (you need to get a ticket from reception for a few euros) and, as previous reviewers have stated, there are lots of shopping opportunities around and nice cafes too.
Overall it was a pleasant, although pretty average, hotel stay.
