It is a nice hotel to stay at Lucerne in Switzerland. It is around 15-20 mins from railway station and bus 24 takes you there which frequency is very good. Hotel is renovated, staff very courteous, offers good breakfast. Lake is in front at a walk-able distance.

I had booked this place by seeing the reviews in Booking.com. This was my first visit to Switzerland. I booked this place for 3 nights. Initially our plan was to reach Luzern from Frankfurt via Basel. But after reaching Basel, on advise of the travel bureau there, we changed plans went first to Interlaken instead. So when we reached Luzern... More

This is a belated review from september. As stated by other reviewers this hotel could do with a little redecoration. (I had a giggle in the 60's bathroom, but at least it's not shared like a lot of hotels in Switzerland) The room itself was very spacious and the bed comfortable. By far the most outstanding feature of this hotel... More

Our first bit of advice if traveling by train is get off at the right Meggen station and save yourself a long walk. We made that mistake on your behalf so don't get off at Meggen Zentrum...it's closer than you think from the second stop! This guest house feels a little time warped but that's okay.

This hotel is situated in a town called Meggen which is 15min ride distance from Luzern. So you don't bump with tourists and can be very relaxed. Actually the town is very near from Rigi Mountain so you can have nice view of the mountain. I love the staff and breakfast here but as someone said there is a construction... More

As This hotel is a real old hotel with lots of history. This has two sides. It really has some feel you really are in the Alps at a genuine hotel. But you can also rate it as it is full of old stuff. It is a 15 min bus ride (€ 8,- day ticket ) to the city centre... More

If you want serenity & a nice view, do NOT stay here. Major construction on 3 sides of the property. We are talking cranes & bulldozers! No mention of this beforehand. We cancelled and the guy still charged me for 1st night, $113. I want to warn others not to get taken like I did. We were in Switzerland for... More

We stayed for just one night here on route to Italy. Our room was large with a huge comfortable bed, excellent free wifi and fully equipped ensuite bathroom. This is very different from the hotels we usually stay in but we enjoyed it so much more. The entire property is so beautiful, full of fine old furniture and artefacts. We... More

We really wanted to like this place. It has so much potential. The building is over 300 years old and has been in the current owners family for 6 generations. The owners and staff we met were very friendly and pleasant. Plus we liked their Swiss Mountain Dog, Suzi, which walked around the common areas. However, the rooms and overall... More
