This hotel was perfect! Clean, EASY to get to and find, as well as great location overall. The room with a balcony facing the chapel bridge was well worth it!! The bed was comfortable, and breakfast was great too. I would definately recommend!

It was wonderful walking out of the train station and seeing our hotel across the bridge from us! The staff were very friendly, the room was very clean and the view unbeatable! We had a room with a small balcony looking over the bridge and river. We sat out there enjoying our wine. It was a nice feature that the... More

The location, 5 minutes away from the train station, right in the heart of this beautiful city, and right on the river, cannot be beat. Staff friendly and very helpful. Room was perfect, all the amenities here. I chose a room with a river view and what a view it was. The river, Lake Lucerne, the mountains, the heart of... More

We spent our first night in Switzerland at the Hotel Des Alpes in Lucerne since the city was an easy train ride from the airport and the station is just on the other side of the river. Coming up out of the station you spot the amazing wooden bridge lined with flowers and at the end you will spot the... More

The location is perfect, very close to the bridge. Even though the building is from the 1500's, the hotel is modern and updated. The room was very clean and good size for an old building. The breakfast was very nice. The only thing that was not perfect was the restaurant/bar restroom on a Saturday night needed attention.

This hotel has one of the more exclusive looking restaurants amongst the casual type of dining available on the Furrengasse, next to the lovely Kappelbrükke. It was worth it, no question. The staff was very professional and the wine list of excellent Swiss wines was very surprising. We were thrilled with our red wine choice and we learned more about... More

We stayed 2 nights - both were rainy, but still, the view of the river and the very tiny balcony were worth it. We had a perfect view of the wooden covered bridge which was also covered with flowers. Saturday morning there was an amazing farmers'market. The only reason for the 4 instead of 5 is the noise. The bars... More

This place was pretty expensive ($254 for the night) but certainly convenient ... just across the bridge from the train station. We arrived early before the room was ready so they let us leave our luggage while we went exploring, but it was in an open area not really monitored by the front desk staff, so I didn't feel too...

My Husband and I stayed four nights at the Hotel des Alpes on a Bed & Breakfast basis. We found the staff to be friendly and very helpful and they all spoke good English. Our room was on the 3rd Floor at the back of the hotel (we had requested a high floor room). The room had a luxury bathroom... More
