WIFI was only in the lobby and one had to use Starbucks...which was kind of a drag as it was not very fast. Room was a little dated, but with nice bathroom.... More

This was the last hotel my husband and I stayed at during our Switzerland tour with Globus. In our opinion, Globus saved the best for last! This hotel is a historic building and quite lovely. It is centrally located near shops, restaurants, bars and train station. It is close to "Old Lucerne" and the Chapel Bridge. Our room was clean... More
