All hotels would like to be part of an experience that you would remember. Few hotels can provide it. Fewer still manage it without making an effort. And Hotel Des Alpes most definitely is part of that experience that we are going to remember. The location is excellent, right at the rives, in from of the chapel bridge, and moments... More

We stayed here for four nights. The view from the river (lake) side was tremendous, and we had requested and received a second floor room which has an outdoor patio with seating (higher floors have small balconies). The room itself was comfortable, adequately large, and the shower was quite nice. I would caution though, that the Brit bar next door... More

Had a wonderful two night stay at Hotel des Alpes. Upon arriving the woman at the front desk gave us a lot of information about local attractions and restaurants. She spoke excellent English too, which is always appreciated! Our room was clean, spacious and faced toward the quiet back street (as requested) where the entrance is. The hotel's location in...

We only stayed one night, but it was outstanding. The hotel is right on the lake with the best view of the bridge and water tower. We had a lovely room with a large balcony. The bathroom was roomy and the room was well appointed. We were lucky enough to be there for Lucernfest, so we were treated to music... More

great location – in old town, a short walk from the train station, just across from the famous bridge. We got a room facing the back (less expensive than those facing the river, with an awesome deck – with a great view of old town church’s and roof tops). Very efficient staff. We had an issue with our room, and... More

We are a family of five so we stayed in two rooms - the rooms were right next to each other which was nice because we wanted our teenage kids near us. Both rooms were wonderful, spacious, clean, well decorated and both had great showers, good size bathrooms. Our rooms looked directly out onto the Chapel Bridge and the lake,... More

We had a pleasant stay at Hotel des Alpes in Luzern. It's close to everything. The station is within walking distance, the famous wooden bridhge is right in front of the hotel and all the shops are righ behind it. Breakfast is good and the rooms are nice and clean.
