We ate here on a beautifully sunny day. The rosti was beautiful as was the view. Staff were lovely and spoke good English. I would recommend for a nice meal with a good view of the bridge. Did not stay at the hotel so cannot comment.

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst doing a Swiss Rail Tour. The hotel is very conveniently located. It's just a few minutes walk from the railway station & within walking distance of most of Lucerne. The reception staff were friendly & informative. The room was compact but comfortable. The breakfast offering was not large but still plenty to get us... More

Let's start with the pros. This hotel's location really can't be beat. It's located right in the heart of Lucerne, and for train travelers such as ourselves, a quick walk from the station. We thought our room was clean and the breakfast was decent. Our main issues here were due to our room. I'm kicking myself now we didn't write... More

Stayed in a River View balcony room on a high floor overlooking the Chapel bridge. The room was quite nice as was the view over the river with the mountains in the background. The room size was ok except for the shower which was very small. So the room itself is nice and worthy of a 4. The breakfast included... More

We really enjoyed our balcony room above the river. We were right next to the Chapel Bridge and a short walk from the train station. Right in the heart of the old town, there are many shops, restaurants and beautiful places to sit and take in the views. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The food was delicious... More

In an expensive city, this excellent hotel offers quality lodging and a marvelous river view at a reasonable price. An ample breakfast is included in the rate, and seldom have we enjoyed a buffet in a more attractive setting. The location is superb -- right on the Reuss, five minutes from the train station, and perhaps ten minutes from the... More

The location was one of the best features, walking distance to the train station, shopping and attractions. The hotel locale is wonderful, be sure and get a room with a view of the water..the city view is unremarkable. The staff and service were knowledgeable and friendly. A very special stop for us.

This hotel is really special, the staff are absolutely beautiful couldn't do enough for us and we felt very special. The location is the thing that is the most attractive. We did find that the breakfast was basic so we ordered omelette €9 each they were tasty and nice so you can order extra at a cost. No car parking... More

This was our fourth stay at the Des Alpes. Opted this time for a river view with balcony. It was worth the extra cost. Fantastic views of the Chapel Bridge, Mount Pilatus and Mount Rigi. The hotel has recently been renovated with an impressive new dining area, lift and room key security system. We had some evening meals on the... More
