The hotel was perfect! We stayed for 3 nights in May 2017 for our 17th wedding anniversary.The views were amazing! The snow capped mountains and the River Reuss in front of you ( while you're in your balcony) and the sound of the river water accompanies you while you drift in your sleep. Our room was clean and spacious.The staff...

This hotel has everything you need and nothing that you don't. Think about that...it means you are paying for what you want, and not paying for falderals that you don't want or use. And great thought has gone into providing spotlessly clean surroundings, friendly service, a free and efficient internet and a substantial and generous breakfast. The front of house...

The hotel is located along the Reuss River, about 1km from the train station. Shopping areas and restaurant are easily reachable on foot. The room and hotel grounds are nicely renovated and really clean. In my opinion there 2 main worries with the hotel: - The sound proofing is really bad, you hear everything, and live with your neighbors (both...

We were a couple (early 50's) travelling around Switzerland on a Swiss Train Pass. This was our first night in the country and one of two nights we had in Lucerne - we stayed at the Tourist Hotel for one night. Being our first night we were not really travel 'savvy' - and the location of the hotel meant we...

1. Extremely good location, within walking distance of the railway station, and on the riverside. You could easily walk to all the main attractions of Lucerne from this hotel, as it is so centrally located. 2. Very very helpful staff. The guy at the front desk, Christian, gave us plenty of advice, sold us tickets to Titlis, gave us maps,...

We stayed here last February 2017 with my family. The location is walking distance from a bus stop and a few min away from the main train station. We found this hotel very comfy and quiet..The room was quite spacious and clean.The staff were nice and helpful. Free tea, coffee and cake at the dining area every afternoon was fab!

Good value for money. Clean, comfy and a nice view. Breakfast was nice for what it cost us and we got to park right outside! The night receptionist was really helpful but the morning lady not so much.

Excellent location overlooking Rheus river and Mount Pilatus in old part of town. Short 12 minute walk from main station. Super friendly and helpful staff. Room was like an apartment and very spacious, clean and comfortable. Close to shops, eateries and many other top attractions. Only negative is very noisy creaky floor.

We booked 2 family rooms here for 7 people and were pleasantly surprised by the short walk from the train station to the hotel. Also the location is right on the river overlooking the covered bridges. Delighted in all we had found so far we went up to our room and that is as good as it got. We were...
