“Wonderful B&B with a few quirks, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

We had the room on 3rd floor, far end of the hall way.
Perfect view of the city across the lake. Best view of fireworks on Luzern Fest.

The comments/complaints by others are valid, can be a bit noisy due to traffic from the street, but the hotel provides all the accommodations to minimize the effects. As long as you know the tricks. You must lower the metal shades during that day to keep the sun out. The traffic was more white noise for us and our 4 yr old, so really we have no complaints.

The staff told us about Luzern fest, told us to be back before the fireworks, and it was wonderful. Breakfast was a bit busy, but good for B&B. There are legos and toys for the kids in the lower section of breakfast area.

Was a little concerned by the previous posts/complaints, but I would say, not really an issue, just follow directions, and adapt. We enjoyed our stay.

Location is excellent for view, but not to city center.

The hotel was clean, and big enough to accomodate 4 of us. The view from the room was just amazing, just as what we wish. What important for us was the tranportation from hotel to the downtown, which was very convenient as the bus stop outside the hotel. Birgit was the champion. She told us everything we need to know from acvities, transport, place of interest etc. Swimming pool and restaurant was available across the road. We just can't be happier to recommend this hotel to everyone. And yes, the breakfast was delicious.

Dear guests, thank you very much for your very nice review about our hotel. We are very happy to hear that our receptionist Birgit could help you in all aspects. We just have to point out for other guests, that the hotel across the street has no swimming pool. As our guest you can use the wellness corner with saunas and fitness equipment. And in summer you can use the deckchairs and go swimming in the lake of Lucerne.
We hope to welcome you again on your next trip to Switzerland. Kind regards
Marlen N. Florian, General Manageress

Very pleasant little hotel in Lucerne, ca. 2 miles from city center. Bus stop /24/ next to hotel, 12 minutes to the center, Wonderful milieu, green, few steps to Vierwaldstaettersee. Across the partnerhotel Hermitage, good restaurants. The Bellevue rooms are very good, clean, big, and from the balcony nice view to Mt. Pilatus and the lake. Breakfast fantastic, staff very helpful and knows everything, what a tourist need. The city is beautiful, pleasant excursions to Chateau Guetsch, or Schloss Meggenhorn. Nice cruises on the lake. Lot of shops at the new Railway Station and in the city center. Very big souvenirshop, called Casa Grande. Lot of fine restaurants. The house of Bucherer and Gübelin on Schwanenplatz, with a lot of famous swiss watches, gems, jewellery. And the swiss khifes, and the chocolates, and the cheeses! You can see a lot of swans and ducks around the famous Kapellbrücke, which made of wood. Some years ago it burned down, rebuilt very quick. The Hotel Bellevue and Lucerne is a great place.

Room Tip: All rooms of the hotel is very silent and quiet.

Liked the front desk. as soon as we checked in we were greeted warmly, she briefed us on to-do activities in Luzern. she also gave some good recommendations for authentic Italian food we were looking for.

Rooms are average but very clean. There is a small elevator good enough for two people :).
well connected to rest of the city by the public transit system.
Very close to lake.

Stayed for 2 nights in May 2011
Very friendly staff, decent breakfast, good clean room our room had a balcony with a coffee table and 2 chairs with view of lucerne lake
we were provided with 2 bicycles free of charge for a ride around the town and lake
they also arranged for spa and steam room access for us across the road at Hermitage hotel which was a bonus
Much recommended place to stay when you are in Lucerne its not too far from the city centre and there's a direct bus from rail station

Room Tip: do check for rooms with balcony

The hotel is not in the city center but you can get around easily with the bus stop that is right next to the hotel. The hotel sells you the bus ticket. The bus system was efficient. No problems getting around. The room was clean and i liked the balcony.
They had no A/C. but the weather was great. slept with windows open. They have a fan in the room if you want. They have free breakfast in the mornings, nothing great though, some will prefer to eat out.
Everyone was nice and they were very helpfull. You can park your car there for 5 CHF per day. They have Internet also, but you have to pay.
I would recommend this hotel. I had no problems and would stay here again.

Room Tip: I would try to get a top floor that over looks the street so you can get a good view of the water fr...
