Lucerne, Switzerland

Together with a group of friends and relatives, we celebrated a big event here. The location is outstanding, being only a few minutes from the station, and most of the many sights of the town are very easy to reach on foot. If you do have a car, there is a carpark nearby. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful,...

We reserved a room online for a quick weekend trip. Not knowing anything about Luzern, we were surprised at how close and convenient this hotel is to everything in town. You are walking distance from just about everything. The hotel staff was more than accommodating for our late arrival and made sure we were taken care of. Parking is across...

We stayed for a weekend in July at this hotel. For Lucerne, it is actually reasonably priced. The location is absolutely ideal, you are right at the city centre and just a few minutes away from the Chapel bridge and the lake. The staff was very, very friendly and the room comfortable and clean. The house is very old, and...

Although classed as a hotel this felt more like a restaurant with rooms. The room was clean and the staff were friendly and polite although not always available. The best thing about the hotel was its location, within easy walking of the railway station and close to the Chapel Bridge. The downside was the noise from the bars downstairs and...

This boutique hotel boasts the oldest restaurant in Luzern, which is frequented by locals and not too many tourists. 100 metres to the river and shops; cross the river to the old town area. 5 minute walk to the train station. Only gripe is the small sachets of body wash which are near impossible to open without scissors. Breakfast well...

We stayed for one night in this hotel, the hotel is close to the casino, the check in was easy and the personal is very friendly, the rooms are clean, the bed comfort was good, the rooms are little because of the historical building, the shower and toilette are separated from the sink, but overall a very good experience

My friends and I had an amazing time staying in this hotel. The location is great, it's walking distance from the main train station and supermarkets. It is also located near the Chapel Bridge. The rooms are spacious and clean. The highlight of our stay here was seeing the first snowfall during our trip from the hotel window.

We only stayed at this hotel for a night. The room 403 was great, love the deco from lighting to the comfy bed, as well as the mini espresso machine. The shower was very very simple though. There are only 2 hooks to hang your towels, I'd love to suggest the hotel to put a mini rack inside the shower...

Dear Guest, thank you for staying with us. I am sorry our hotel accomodation could not fulfill your expectations. Schlüssel has been a hotel since 1545 and is one of the oldest hotels in Lucerne - probably worldwide. Due to a small historic house we can not provide our guests with more than 10 rooms but of course are obliged...
