“The worst hostal ever!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We stayed one night, you have to share the bathroom with two more rooms. The floor is so nosy we could not sleep it was the worst hotel ever, I do not understand why they call it hotel if it is more an Hostal... for students with low budget... terrible! Horrible! They should charge 5 bucks.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

It was our first trip to Lucerne and we had no idea of what to expect. Our first impression was positive. The B&B is a well-kept old house with spacious rooms. Simone was very helpful and gave us quite useful information. We travelled with our little daughter and she was very interesting on climbing up the stairs...so good excersise for us too :) Breakfast is simple but well balanced. There is a TV monitor in the dining room for those who cannot miss what is happening around the world. Actually the day we came, we heared the bells of the church nearby ringing loudly and for a long time...we knew that the new Pope had been elected and then confirmed on TV. The place is very quiet because it is located in a residential area but no far from the main districts.

2 Star , 4/10
B&B but in a lot of ways like a hostell.
Seemed very popular with Families, who book out a whole floor to avoid the bathroom sharing.
In a quiet neighbourhood, but street parking only.
Most rooms have common facilities , toilets , dinning room etc
The land lady was nice and the service good but she was over worked.
Nice simple breakfast.
Our loft had Air conditioning and upstairs our own little lounge and a king sized bed with pretty good pillows plus seperate shower and toilet down stairs connected by an attick ladder / steep stairs.

Room Tip: If you want some private facilities go for the loft and get your own bathroom just mind your had on...

I dropped in and was greeted by Madeleine who was very warm and friendly. The B&B is very close to zentrum, only 20 minute walk and is charming, cozy and a lovely place to stay. Unfortunately, I did not have a reservation and the B&B was full, but Madeleine phoned other hotels and secured a room for me across town. Then Madeleine drove me across town (and I followed in my car) to ensure I arrived there safely. Now that is what I call 5 star service, just amazing. I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B... next time I'll make the reservation in advance!

The bnb is set in a residential area, which was a plus for us to be away from the bustle of hotels in cities for a few days and it was a very easy 15 minute walk to the centre of Luzern. From booking to leaving, the staff were absolutely amazing - what a credit to any business to have people like this employed! Thank you Simone, Andrea and Evelyn plus a thank you to Isabelle for making booking easy.
We had the attic room, which had private facilities and a bit of space with a lounge. The gardens were lovely, we sat outside on each night that we stayed and enjoyed a few drinks and snacks after our busy days (plus a game or two of cards and soem great chats with the girls there). Great spot to unwind. A bonus is that there are several restaurants / cafes within easy walking distance.
Would highly recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Book early!

We stayed here for two nights and found the the location and the staff to be excellent. Simone was extremely helpful in sorting out our carparking arragements and tickets to Mt Pilatus. The room we had was on the ground floor next to the main entrance and dining room, so we had to deal with noise from people walking around coming and going, plus the floors creaked badly. The room was large and clean but the mattress on the bed was due for a replacement, as it had terrible "roll together". The location was perfect with a bus stop close by, but we walked to the main center in about 15 minutes.

Room Tip: Try and get the rooms upstairs away from the entrance and dining room, to ensure a quieter nights sl...

We stayed here in August , a party of 5 so we had two rooms on the top floor . The staff were very friendly and always helpful . Surroundings were lovely and very quiet at night . You cud catch the bus into the town if u like but we chose to walk as it is so pretty and the weather was wonderful, only took about 20 mins so good exercise when your on hols. Rooms and bathroom were very clean and tidy and we sat out in the garden a couple of time and had a coffee which was very pleasant.
