i stayed in Hotel ambassador in feb 2013.
i had an amazing experience here.
the room were new and really clean and neat(i had room no 408)
they have a lift and u have to insert the key to go to your floor.
Inorder to reach the hotel,from the Station in Luzern you have to take the Bus no 1 to Maihof (there are two stops outside the station opp each other which have bus number 1, so be careful which one you take) and to go out at the station Löwenplatz. The hotel is on the other streetside opposite it.Next to starbucks.
so once you get down from the bus, cross the road and look at the opposite side.
Opp the hotel there is an Indian restaurant called KANCHI.
the restaurant has good food but it is not cheap. a meal for 2 can min cost you 50 70 Swiz franc.
There is also an indian restaurant called Tandoori, which is close and offers a meal for 10 swiz franc which is OK , and can be eaten if there is a money issue.
The internal city transport was free( i used the bus 4 5 time and we were never asked for a ticket or anything) so its free.
then u can see and walk down the lake there which is beautiful.
you can go to mt.titlis :http://titlis.ch/index.php?id=2 .
For Mt titlis you have to take the train to Engelberg (from platform 14, plz confirm the platform)
you can Purchase the ticket for titlis from the luzern station (floor -1) in the sbb section,
if you have the train pass for swiz you can get 50% off for Mt Titlis ticket.
so it will cost you approx 43 Euro per person. you can also buy the ticket when you reach Engelberg station,
Then you can see the Lions monument(there is nothing a big deal there though, can be skipped also)
Also u can see the Chapel bridge which is just outside the Station !!
Then if u have time you can go to the Museum of transport.
there is a museum of vehicles , but it is open only till 5.
so make sure u enter by 3 or early.
Luzern is a small city there is nothing to worry, u can roam on you own and nothing much to worry
